Whimsical, elegant or slightly ominous – whichever route you choose to go with an Alice in Wonderland party theme, you’ll find everything at Shindigz that you need to pull it off with aplomb. Alice is a classic story that reaches all age groups. Children can relate to Disney Alice and the frantic white rabbit with the punctuality problem. Adults will recall the Tim Burton take of more recent years. Teens will appreciate the humor behind the courtly airs when Alice is their prom theme. It’s also a theme that lets your repurpose decorations from the past. That balloon tree you bought a few years back will look great with the Cheshire Cat’s teeth grinning amid the branches. Playing cards, from giant standees to regulation size decks, make great decor, too.
For the ultimate in wonderland ease, start with our Enchanted in Wonderland Decorating Kit that gives you everything you need to create an elegant entrance or attractive picture background. The arch, columns and standees all are sold separately for smaller parties, but the best value is to buy the complete kit at its discounted price. For table decor, build a table tutu by affixing alternating swaths of red, black and white tulle to a solid-color cloth. A tea rose topiary fashioned from tissue paper makes a fabulous centerpiece. Colorful collections of bottles with tags emblazoned “drink me” are another possible centerpiece, or start the evening with appetizers on the table. They will, of course, be labelled “eat me.” Combing local thrift stores for mismatched collections of teapots and teacups is another cheap decor option.
