When throwing an Alice in Wonderland inspired party there is so much that can be done with decorations, and most of it is really easy.
My first project was the singing flowers. I simply bought bouquets of flowers for around $5 at Garden Ridge and glued googly eyes on them. Voila!
Next, I had to have croquet! Luckily, we already had an old set in the attic so that saved on the cost. I drew a few card soldiers on poster board, cut them out, and duct taped them to the croquet wickets. Then I zip tied a few plastic flamingoes onto the mallets and we had an Alice in Wonderland game of croquet!
Cheshire Cat Sign
I also made a cute Cheshire cat sign to set on the table with the cake. For this, I bought a wooden picture from Hobby Lobby. I wrapped the outside of the frame with pink zebra striped duct tape. Then I used some bright yellow poster board for the inside. I chose the quote “We are all mad here” as it’s one of my favorite said by the Cheshire cat, but I changed it up just a bit. I then printed out a picture of the cat and glued on a flower. It was very easy and turned out so cute!
