Mad Hatter Tea Party


So my lovely little middle dotter turned 8 this month. In our family that is a very special birthday. In our church children get baptized when they turn 8 and that important event will take place at the end of the month.

I wanted to have a special party for this special birthday. I have been wanting to do a Mad Hatter Tea Party for some time and she decided that the tea party was for her. I probably worked on it for about 3 months, making sure I got on the components. The fun part for me is trying to find just what I need on a pretty limited budget. I got most of the decorations at thrift stores, garage sales, estate sales and a few antique dealer friends.

I had so much fun doing this party for my sweet little dotter. Happy Birthday honey!

Okay, here is the disclaimer: Tons of pictures below, I  just loved them all. I owe the wonderful photography to the lovely Sarah Pennepacker. She is great photographer and helped me capture this fun party.

Hi,

I'm from Belgium and I'm planning an alice in wonderland themed wedding. And I must say that everything is looking amazing but I especially like the mad hatter hat. Did you make it from scratch or?
Do you have a pattern or something?
Thanks
