Alice in Wonderland Party

The classic children’s story is the perfect backdrop for an imaginative fête overflowing with color, costumed creatures, and all the sweet treats befitting a tea party. We especially love the googly-eyed centerpieces, croquet court, and the Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum costumes for the guests of honor (in this party, featured in DIY Inspired, they’re twins!).
