Mad Hatter Tea Party to Celebrate Alice in Wonderland Movie Release

To mark the release of the new Alice in Wonderland movie today, MsTwixt and tweens are having a Mad Hatter Tea Party. We're having tea (of course), playing Hearts and chess, and eating tea cakes, and playing croquet with plastic flamingos. More party deets below:

Setting the scene: a lavish table (set ideally outdoors) with a "turf" tablecloth, bright faux flower centerpieces, mismatched arm chairs, mismatched tea cups, playing cards as placecards, and colorful paper lanterns dangling across the yard.

The treats: we loved the Cheshire Cat macarons and peculiar blue meringue mushrooms from BakeLab. Also "Eat Me" petit fours, Early Grey tea, and homemade pink marshmallows (recipe here).

The attire: mini top hats, character cameos, crystal bling, and Opi's Mad As a Hatter nail polish.

How would you throw a Mad Hatter style tea party? What would you wear?
