“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.
