Go Really Unique with a Mad Hatter Tea Party Reception

A Mad Hatter tea party wedding reception is a great way to go truly funky for your reception. And, yep, that’s what my daughter is talking about. She’s even thinking about making it a costume party. She wants to ask everyone to where a costume that comes from the Alice in Wonderland world.

Granted, Great Aunt Betty probably won’t dress for the occasion, but her friends are game for this. Her mother is game for this, too. I suggested I dress as the Queen of Hearts and knock around a few heads! I’m not sure that’s what my daughter has in mind. We’re still talking about it!

We have talked about using Alice in Wonderland teapots for the tea service as well as for centerpieces. We are looking at color schemes for the reception as well. The classic Disney version of Alice in Wonderland has a charming blue and white color scheme, since that’s Alice’s dress colors, but the newer Johnny Depp version brings in the deeper richer colors. My daughter has thought about a combination of maroon, black and white for that color scheme.

I showed her a page made by our friend Sylvestermouse: How to Make a Mad Hatter Hat. Se was so thrilled with this, that she has decided no matter what kind of reception they have, she and her fiance will wear these hats just for fun! But, of course, this will work great for a Mad Hatter tea party reception.
