Alice in Wonderland Party Invitations

To make homemade Alice in Wonderland Invitations make a Golden Stop Watch out of cardstock paper. Instead of time by hours have years on the stop watch (e.g., 1 year old, 2 years old, etc.). Add on red hour and minute hands pointing to the birthday boy/girl’s age (make with construction paper and glue to the right age). On the backside write your party info:

“Your invited to a very important date! Don't be late!
“R.S.V.P. to the Queen of Hearts!

Alice in Wonderland Party Supplies and Decorations

  • Use the color theme red, white and black
  • Have an entrance sign that says "This way to the Mad Hatter's Tea Party" or "Down the Rabbit Hole" 
  • Set up a large tea table with lots of different chairs and different teapots and cups (you can get different colored child sized chairs at dollar type stores)
  • Make a tunnel to enter party room (you can get a great one at Ikea)
  • Paint butcher block paper to look like trees and put the Cheshire cat in it, extra large flowers, flamingos, a picket fence around the tea area, etc.
  • Make a large mirror to walk through. Use cardboard for the mirror frame and cut strips of cellophane for the mirror so you can walk through it
  • Draw rabbit paw prints on the drive with sidewalk chalk leading into your home
  • Hang large homemade pocket watches on large ribbons. You can either create a set of an add number or randomly spread them throughout your party area
  • Create large card guards - make with large card stock poster sized paper
  • Flowers, flowers, everywhere - you can either make paper and tissue paper flowers, have real flowers, borrow flowers, or often you can rent flowers from your local florist for the day
  • Make a wooden direction sign (like you see at travel destinations) can label the signs Go back, That way, This way, Wrong way, Up, Down, Tea Party. Paint the back of the signs with your color theme and keep the font simple and black making it easy to read
  • Photo Op Station - Create a trellis and cover it with large playing cards,. Also use an old picture frame or mirror frame, first paint it gold and then hot glue on cards, old watches or strange numbers for a large clock, 
  • Get cardboard letters to spell out "Eat Me" and cover them with an artificial greenery for the food station
  • Use scarves or tulle around the outside of a couple of the tables
  • Empty paint tins labelled "Paint the Roses Red" with red paint drizzling over the top for show
  • Hang antique books from trees
  • Spade Mylar balloon
  • Red Heart Mylar balloon
  • White and red roses (put a bucket of red paint and some paint brushes beside them)

Alice in Wonderland Party Games and Activities

  • Croquet Play outside the regular way or you could use umbrellas as the mallet
  • Pin the smile on the Cheshire Cat. Play like pin the tail on the donkey
  • Paint your own tea cup or tea pot (use special paint from your local craft store)
  • Race of the Roses Who can paint their rose red the fastest (use markers and an artificial white rose)
  • Golden Key Scavenger Hunt Hide a number of golden keys for your guests to find them (if the kids are young you could have the kids find a certain color of key, so they can each find a key)
  • Musical Painting Display different pictures for the kids to try to paint on canvas. Do this like musical chairs, when the music stops they need to move to the next painting. When the game is done, you'll have some really unique paintings!
  • Doily Crowns cut strips of cardstock poster, have guests color or decorate 3 doilies (1 large and 2 small). Then fold the doilies in half and glue onto the long strip that will be the band around the guests head.
  • Rabbit Race Potato sack race. Try not to be late!
  • Tea Race Use a tea cup, fill it with water and race to the tea pot and whoever fills it first wins
  • Stackable Balance Put stacks of plastic plates of different sizes and bowls in front of all the guests. You call out which piece to stack first and continue to stack dishes in strange orders (if your dishes topple over you are out). Whoever stacks the most wins.
  • Flamingo Croquet set up a regular croquet game with multiple tea off points. For the croquet mallets you can use either the regular with the flamingos beside watching or if your guests are gentle you could use the flamingo for the mallet itself. You can often find the flamingos at discount stores in the spring.
  • Where's the White Rabbit Scavenger Hunt find old keys at an antique shop and attach a long ribbon to each. At the end of the ribbon place a card with the clue to your guests next hiding place. Try to have enough keys for each guest to solve the mystery of where to go to find the white rabbit.
  • Card Corn Hole Game create out of light wood or a thick cardboard. have the holes correspond with the number on the card itself. Create the holes to look like hearts for the Queen of Hearts. Have a little basket of beanbags for the guest to toss.
  • Decorate a Tea Cup to take home. Set up a station with lots of mugs and a basket with a jumbo pack of Sharpie permanent markers
  • Painting the White Roses Red have a painting station set up with artificial flowers, paint brushes and acrylic paint. I would also supply some type of painters shirt or apron for your guests wo wear while painting.
