This amazing MAD HATTER TEA PARTY was submitted by Robyn Preston of Robyn Preston Photography, and was styled by Pretty My Party.

Oh what fun! Look at all the incredible details!

Here is what Robyn had to say about the party- “This was a whimsical Mad Hatter Birthday party for 6-8 year olds. Each guest arrived and received a custom designed hat for the tea party after walking down the rabbit hole. The other favor the guests took home was tea.”

    I am doing a boy themed “Mad Hatter Un-birthday” party for my son’s first birthday. The idea came about when we heard that my husband would be deploying the day of his first birthday, give or take a couple weeks. So to be safe we decided to do his party a month before his actual 1st birthday, which we started calling it his un-birthday. The ideas were flowing and now it is his theme. We are sticking to bold blues, greens, oranges and a little purple to keep it masculine. There will be an outdoor tent with lanterns draped across. Hobby Lobby had some GREAT props for very inexpensive such as over-sized gold keys and clocks. Walt Disney World provided for some great “photo-booth” hats in the Queen of Hearts, Cheshire Cat and the Mad Hatter. We also purchased an Alice in Wonderland teapot that was found at WDW. I am making “Cheshire Cat Tails” which is 3-4 marshmallows on a candy stick, frosted in melted pink white chocolate (you can purchase in cake decorating section of many stores) then with edible purple glitter gel/frosting, I am drawing a line in between each mallow creating the effect of what looks like a cat tail. We are renting a croquet set from out local rec center and found PDF files for purchase on Etsy in which you can print off cut outs to tape to the club and balls so it looks like the croquet set from the film. Oriental Trading Company has some great extras (also got the lanterns there), such as over-sized playing cards. This can definitely be made for a boy!

    Beautiful party ideas! My daughter and I are hosting a Christmas mad hatter tea party. Do you have a link to purchase the hats? I’m looking for enough for each guest and to decorate a tree. Thx!

    I own a Scone Shoppe and Tea Room in Point Pleasant, NJ. I would like to host a Mad Hatter Tea Party. If possible, can you tell me where you purchased the cut-outs, especially the cat.

    Thanks so much.
