A Mad Hatter Tea Party

Every year, I host a special tea party or a brunch for local alumnae and active members of my sorority. This year I chose the theme of a Mad Hatter Tea Party.
Here is the invitation:

I designed the invite to look like a card from a deck and had them printed on white card stock. They turned out so cute!

Centerpieces were cupcakes made by a local senior in High School as part of her senior project. She hand made roses white and sprayed them red to look like they were painted red. Some cupcakes had a small heart card in them. I also made fruit kabobs to go with the cupcake centerpieces. Since this was a tea party theme, I also put tea pots and tea cups out. I made tags that said, "eat me" and "drink me" for the tables and tea cups. With the bright pink table linens it looked so festive.
I used hot pink and lime green as accent colors too. I love all the bright color!
Of course, festive hats were needed too. This is a picture of me and the hat I purchased at the local Herbergers store. Being that the Kentucky Derby was that same weekend, hats were easy to find and on sale. What a great party it turned out to be!
