Ok, let’s talk TEA CUPS! Those large tea cups are the PERFECT addition to this theme. I’m totally in love with them. All the bright fun details of this party really capture the spirit of this classic tea party from Alice in Wonderland. Then there is the croquet set. Again…AMAZING! This party screams the theme from beginning to end!

Enjoy Donna’s Mad Hatter Tea party…..
The giant stacked tea cups took MANY hours of painting. I would even bring them to swim practice. They drew quite the crowd!
The hedgehog balls are madeout of 4″ styrofoam balls. I ripped up paper grocery bags and used Mod Podge to apply them. Each ball took about 1/2 an hour…I made 16 of them. Luckily, my friends Sandy and Marina helped me with them.
The mallets were 2′ stuffed flamingos.
The placesettings consisted of plastic pink chargers, black ceramic plates with white polk dots, giant metal flower and ribbon napkin rings with chartruse napkins and black and white Cheshire cat mugs. The place card holders were butterflies in pots and I made the name cards on the computer.
I’ve had a lot if inquiries about the tea cups. I got them in downtown Los Angeles at the Flower Mart. They are pretty lightweight and I think they are some sort of fiberglass.
