Alice in Wonderland and Mad Hatter

John Tenniel and his white rabbit tea cup may be late but you are on time for Childrens Tea Party sets and Ideas as we join the Mad Tea Party 2015Welcome To Children’s Tea Party Sets and Ideas! Unlike the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland, you are NOT late! In fact, you are right on time for the latest Mad Tea Party. I’m so glad you came! I’ve been working for days preparing for a fun Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter tea party with all sorts of ideas and cute decorations and, of course, tea cups and teapots to share with my grandkids AND with you! Do come in and enjoy yourself!

My table is set with all sorts of cute pretties like this adorable teapot vase full of fresh flowers.

I have to admit, when it comes to Alice in Wonderland, I tend to lean to the old and classic versions of everything. I know this Paul Cardew porcelain teapot isn’t THAT old, but it is older than many and I think it is so cute with Alice on top and the Mad Hatter and Alice on the face. He did make such cute teapots, don’t you think? I was visiting a friend last week and they had a couple of these. It was so much fun to see them “in action” so to speak.

 

This Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter teapot is much larger so it would work well for your real tea party ideas

He created some adorable children tea cups and tea sets too – made out of porcelain and both regular size and extra-tiny – so tiny, they are probably more for imaginary tea or home decor items. But still fun to enjoy for this whimsical tea party, may I say.

Of course, we can’t have a tea party without dainty delicacies. Would you like a creampuff?

Or how about a cupcake?

Don’t forget to leave room for some cake as well.

Did you have enough to eat? How about adding some fun and games to all of these delightful tea party foods, decorations and other ideas – starting with movies and books. There are plenty to choose from. For my grand children and you, I was torn between Disney’s 1951 version of Alice In Wonderland, which includes such fun song delights as the White Rabbit singing “I’m Late, I’m Late” (I still love to sing that to my grandchildren), along with the Happy Un-Birthday idea from the Mad Hatter and Alice in Wonderland Tea Party Scene. Did you ever see it? Here’s a trailer for it:

(There is currently a full version of this cartoon on YouTube as well for you to enjoy. Click here to see it.)

But I also love the fully vintage 1933 version with an all-star cast my grandkids wouldn’t know but that my senior mom and I love, and maybe you too, so I decided to also  buy the DVD of it for one of my Alice In Wonderland Mad Hatter tea party ideas. Here’s the trailer for that one – what do you think?

Being a total bookworm, my tea parties often have books involved. There were so many fun choices but again, I tend to lean to the classic style for reading:

I loved the original book and movie of Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking glass my grandchildren lean more to the Disney versions

I also enjoy the modern cartoon styles for fun activities for my grandkids to enjoy, like this one with stickers, just for them – and you!

This Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter tea party book would be great for several ideas including decorations activities and quiet timeOur final treat for our Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter tea party is one of those silly fun ideas that puts a smile on every kid’s face (everyone I’ve ever met, anyway) – a teapot or tea cup (or both) pinata full of delightful goodies and treats.

Having a fun Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter Paul Cardew tea party full of great ideas like this Teapot pinata since teapots are vital to tea parties

Ann at Kids Toy Tea Sets will visit A Fanciful Twist for her delightful Mad Tea Party 2015

P.S. I apologize to all the lovely guests who visited and left comments. Sadly, a mega blog crash occurred. I am grateful I was able to save the post, but the comments disappeared when the crash was corrected. As you can tell, it really WAS a MAD Tea Party ♥♥♥♥ As a matter of fact, that COULD explain the very odd business card with an intriguing HAT and message I found amidst the shards of my poor blog comments…

Kids toy tea sets had a bloggy attack-was it by the mad hatter

WELCOME to Children’s Tea Party Sets and Ideas as we join in the fanciful fun of a Mad Tea Party at The Fanciful Twist! Over the last few days, I’ve shared all the fun my grandchildren and I had during our own Mad Hatter Tea Party Extraordinaire for boys and girls alike.

Today, I wanted to share the story I wrote for the photo book I’m preparing for them for Christmas. Shhhhh, don’t tell on me. ♥♥♥♥

Mad Hatter Tea Party was fun for grandchildren and grandparents alike

Once upon a time, a fairy princess invited several guests from the royal kingdom to join her for a special Mad Hatter Childrens Tea Party Extraordinaire.

The pretty pink Princess threw a fun childs tea party for all her friends - with cute toy tea sets and fun games
All were quite excited to hear about this delightful party and put on their most interesting clothes.

Princes and Princesses from near and far - all dressed up - came to join the Mad Hatter Tea Party for little girls and boys
They invited their favorite stuffed animals and dolls and arrived promptly on time to the princess’ lovely castle.

While pretty princesses had their stuffed teddy bears for the childrens tea party fun

The princess greeted each guest with a lovely smile, all the while holding a most mysterious bag.

Such an intriguing bag for the children mad hatter tea party and tea sets - what could it contain

When all the guests were present, the princess escorted the guests to a giant table with such cute toy tea sets at one end.

My grandchildren and I had such a delightful time with our cute childs tea sets

On the other end, she set the strange bag down and tapped it. Instantly, cute costumes danced in the air, just waiting to be selected.

She tapped the bag and it sparkle-ized into a lovely collection of costumes and disguises for our Mad Hatter Tea Party for boys and girls

The children all shouted with glee! At the direction of the princess, they each took turns trying on all the different and delightful costumes. After a while, every child had discovered just the right outfit that they liked best.

The princess took a photo of each of them – and another of all of them together. Then she turned, waited for the giant table to kneel down so she could clamber atop it, and once it was back into table-like position, she faced the children and announced, “Welcome to the Mad Hatter Children’s Tea Party Extraordinaire! It’s…”
Twas tea time for the princess and all the children who had come - time for the cute kids toy tea sets

Unlike Alice in Wonderland, however, this Mad Hatter tea party had no dormouse in the teapot.
I am so glad my grandchildren were much more polite at their childrens tea party with the tea sets and guests than the guests were at alices tea party
There were, however, delicious goldfish crackers at each plate – and even some hiding in the teapot.
How ever did the fish jump into the kids toy tea pot in our set - how delightfully strange
After every child had enjoyed the fun refreshments, they merrily headed for the princess’ meadow, full of delightful spring and summer flowers, to tumble and twirl and dance around.

After enjoying the childrens tea party in the cute kids toy tea sets the grandchildren had fun playing outside in lovely flowers

Finally it was time for the party to come to a sweet end…this year…But as the lovely princess sang to them, “Tomorrow! Tomorrow! I love ya Tomorrow!  You’re always A day away!” Then, with a gleeful grin, she invited them all back for another fun tea party tomorrow!

Mad Hatter Tea Party was fun for grandchildren and grandparents alike

Such fun – for grandchildren and grandmother alike! And hopefully, you – my honored guests – as well! And now, it’s time to head to the bigger Mad Tea Party as you continue to enjoy tea party fun, making this quite a special and delightful day. So my grandchildren and I will now bid you adieu!
