DIY Alice In Halloweenland Party

Still thinking about the perfect theme for your upcoming Halloween party. Well think no longer…  Alice in Halloweenland, is a great and easy DIY way to throw the perfect party. The possibilities are endless, and the characters of the movie will keep your imagination going.

Begining with your invites you can really get the party kicked off with the theme.

Invite Wording:

 Don’t be late for a very important date!  __________ (Date).
We will be celebrating __________(Birthday Or Halloween Party)
By order of the Royal Queen of Hearts, you are here by summoned to attend!
Place: Please arrive promptly at _______________(Last name)’s Castle.
Time: At _______________ (time).
Located: At ________________________ (address) in Wonderland.
Attire: Wear your fanciest Alice in Wonderland character costume or a comical, grandiose hat!
RSVP: Respond to the Queen by ______________ (Due Date) or it will be “Off With Your Head!”
You can make an elaborate hat design, tea pot shape, or keep it simple with black, red and gold papers. You can jazz it up by adding a tea bag or playing card in the invite. Have fun with it and let your imagination do all the work.
For decoration ideas the possibilities go on and on. Think about everything that is happening in the movie. You can scatter clocks throughout your space that are stopped at tea time, use lawn flamingos, hang lanterns, or even make rabbit paw prints leading from room to room.  Another great idea is to place a large comfy chair at the head of the table, with other mis matched chairs around the table. If you have a fireplace, put a large mirror on the mantelpiece. Or attach one to a door so people can actually go through the looking glass. If you don’t have a huge mirror, create one with aluminium foil. Decorate your door so it represents the rabbit hole, or the looking glass, where people have to go through to enter the party. Or use a play tunnel. Hang up signs with ‘this way’, ‘that way’, ‘up’, ‘down’, etc. painted on them.
Food is always a place to have fun, bake cookies in the shape of hearts, and write in icing, eat me. Or use our signage on any food or beverage. Looking for a great mini cake recipe use this Mini Carrot and Pineapple Cake recipe…
