Alyssa loves Alice in Wonderland, so a Mad Hatter Tea Party was the perfect theme for her 14th birthday!
Alyssa and Caleb have never outgrown playing dress up and I hope they never will! Costumes are so much fun!
Chocolate-covered strawberries had to be on the menu! They're such a big hit every time I make them!
I found these candy As at our local candy factory. The cookies were on the discount rack at the grocery store. I drizzled the cookies with some of the chocolate I had leftover from the strawberries, added an A and they looked fancy and quirky... perfect for Wonderland!
Milk glass punch cups made the perfect container for jello!
Pickles are always a hit at a tea party for kids or teenagers! Baby dills were cut into bite-sized chunks and the toothpicks came from the dollar store.
I had the cupcake papers and picks leftover from another party and I thought they added interest to the sandwiches.
The cheese filling is just cream cheese and shredded cheese. It's always a hit! The cheese filling is good with finely diced pickles added as well.
My sister made the Cheshire Cat cake! It came out so cute and perfectly fit with the tablescape. This was such a fun and easy party to throw! The kids had their tea party and then watched Alice in Wonderland! I love that Alyssa still has me throw her birthday parties! I love seeing her happy face when it all comes together.
