“Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
– Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
Paper flowers (from Martha Stewart Craft collection) were among the items I wanted to be more prominent. In the 1951 movie, Alice got lost in a garden where some flowers mistaken her by a wildflower. Though nothing wild decorating this table, I wanted a softer approach to this scene in the movie.
And of course a tea party is no party at all if there are no teapots and teacups! I know that the Mad Hatter would be so proud of my ceramic selection (all from +HomeGoods).
Games were also part of this Tea Party venture, so the “Cheshire Cat” made a quasi appearance in the form of spiral like tunnel. I made this by spray painting a plastic lawn edging from The Home Depot and drawing and painting with acrylic paint over a piece of foam-board the face on this cute feline. Dare to go through it without going mad?
To end the night, I gathered some pillows and floor mats and placed them in front of the projector so the girls could enjoy the 1951 version of “Alice in Wonderland“… for the 20th time.
Hope you enjoy our teatime and remember you can always see more photos of this and other project besides my decor style on my Instagram account @idknowhowshedoesit.
