Alice at the Gardens

The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party

The other day I was fortunate enough to treat a special team of ladies who work at the Atlanta Botanical Garden to an Alice in Wonderland inspired tea party! What a lunch break, right?! As soon as they reached out I instantly responded YES. Alice was my first ever themed tea I did for my 25th birthday and I loved it so much I repeated it the next year! Having grown my collection quite dramatically since, you can say I had a lot more fun with choosing which cups and plates to use. To me the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party is full of color, mismatched, and all around fun. A couple of pieces on the table that were “new” and happened to essentially fall on my lap the week of the tea were the hat box I found one day quite randomly and the little mini bottles at the bottom of the centerpiece - these were given to me by Taylor’s mother in law - THE SWEETEST LADY! I’m so glad I could incorporate them all on the table. Maybe one day I’ll find the Mad Hatter himself and see if he wants to join for tea if I create this table again.
