Pete Wentz & Ashley Simpson did an Alice in Wonderland theme for their wedding…I recall seeing it in a tabloid a few years ago. 😉 You might look at that one for ideas.

I saw a craft idea on Katie Brown Workshop

They took tea cups and glued them to a silver candelabra-the tea cups go where the candle would go.  They put fresh flowers in the tea cups.

Dress tables with white tablecloths and mismatched vintage china.

Tiered cake stands and glass punch bowls will make perfect containers for your floral tablecentres, or use old teapots as vases.

Why not use playing cards  as place cards?

 Decorate chairbacks with ribbon, bows or fresh flowers.

Include bunny rabbits if you can.

Put labels or signs on things like ” Eat me” and “Take one” or “Drink Me”, “This Way” or “That Way”

Here are some links:

I agree with the mismatched china -Thriftstore yardsale estate sale finds would be great!

Alice in Wonderland inspiration:


This is not Alice in Wonderland, but very whimsical, perhaps you would like some ideas for this too.  I like the idea of playing card table numbers.

I’m doing a Mad Hatter theme…we’re doing table runners all in different patterns, buying mini tea pots for favors, having a mad hatter cake, centerpiece is a random teapot with flowers in it, etc., etc., etc.  Goodwill has been my best friend for finding milk glass/tea pots.  I’d LOVE to have vintage china, but we already get plates with our venue and I can’t justify the cost. 

Your theme will work well if you just go for it…I’m a little apprehensive about having everything mismatched…but I decided it’s going to look good and we’re going to do it lol.  It won’t be everyone’s taste, but if you’re happy and think it looks great that’s all that matters.

What’s your venue?  You have more options if it’s outside…like a little area to play croquet.  We’re stuck in a hotel ballroom, but I’m looking into uplighting to make it more whimsical.

Good luck with your theme!

I kind of went for this with my wedding, but a bit more subdued.  Even though our wedding was at the beach, I really wanted it to have a whimsical, English tea party feel.  Mismatched shabby chic china I think really pulled the look off.
