I had a lot of props in storage from my daughter's Mad Tea Party from six years ago. Hard to believe I had so much stuff! This party was fun to plan, and it brought back many, wonderful memories.
Alot of the decor I had, just pulled from my holiday decorations, Valentines, Easter and vintage items I had around the house. I did splurge on the giant clock, I scored at Hobby Lobby for $40, original price $200! The glass was broken and the knob was missing, but was so excited for my find, I couldn't resist buying it. Plus, it will look great at Halloween! The other clock on the Drink Me sign was another great find for just $2!

Chair Back Decorations...fabric strips, and old valentine ornaments.
Mad Hatter Haberdashery...
|I purchased these hats after Easter on clearance, |
and just jazzed them up a bit with ribbon & flowers.
|My Grandmother's Hats!|
|One of activities, making hats out of newspaper!|
|I made the cupcake toppers, the silhouette is a picture of the birthday girl. |
Cupcakes were provided by Sweet Sarah Cakes.
|The mom of the birthday girl is the owner of Sweet As Sugar Candy Buffets, |
so she provided all the sweet treats in these beautiful containers along with teapot, teacup and clock cutouts. She also made some beautiful button bouquets!
|The cheshire cat is one of the leftover decorations from 6 years ago. |
I hand painted them on poster board and had them laminated.
There was also Alice, The Mad Hatter and The White Rabbit.
|Photo Opportunities...These Giant Hearts I got from CVS Pharmacy years ago, |
when they were getting rid of their hanging valentine store decor.
