Photography by Andrea Carlyle.
The highly anticipated Alice in Wonderland is coming out this Friday. Well, just in time, the amazing Julie Gallagher and Alex Royston from In Good Company of South Africa, has emailed me photos of an AMAZING Alice in Wonderland photo shoot that would have made Charles Lutwidge Dodgson smile. In Good Company styled the shoot for an Alice in Wonderland bridal shower tea party shoot, but the inspiration can be used for any type of party.
In Good Company is a shop that offers an exquisite range of imported linen, tableware, decorations (including printable party pdfs) and favors. Not only does In Good Company offer fantastic products, but they also have a great eye for styling. These photos are simply breathtaking!
Well guess what? In Good Company graciously offered up the printable party collection pdf that they used for this Alice in Wonderland shoot for all of my readers!!! Yes, you heard that right! This afternoon I will post the printable party pdf on this site and you can download it and create your own Alice in Wonderland party! The printable party collection includes the invitation, note card, envelopes, food picks, cupcake rappers, book plates, bookmarks, favor boxes, bunting and patterned paper. How awesome is that?
Alice in Wonderland Party Tips:
Styling Tip - Mix and Match unusual vessels such as teapots, creamers, jugs and hatboxes. The more mismatched the better!
Serving Tip - Offer a high tea buffet. Serve guests an assortment of teas, as well as tiny finger sandwiches, mini-quiche, scones, petit fours, chocolates, and cupcakes. Finish it off with a “HAPPY UNBIRTHDAY” cake, as was done in the Alice in Wonderland book!
Entertaining Tip - Have guests create made hats at the party and hold a mad hatter fashion show at the end of the event. Provide hats, pipe cleaners, paper butterflies, plastic bugs, flowers, scissors, and tape for each guest to decorate.
See you this afternoon!
