A Little "Mad Tea Party" Inspiration
Saturday is Mad Tea Party time! For inspiration, we re-checked out a couple of fabulous books.
Taking Tea With Alice by Dawn Hylton Gottlieb and Diane Sedo (Warner Books, 1997) is about planning the perfect Victorian tea party. There are several Alice-inspired parties (Tea with the Mad Hatter, Tea in the Garden, and a Nursery Tea), as well as ideas for Valentine's Day, Midsummer, and Christmas. It's a favorite book that I turned to when planning both girls' Alice-inspired birthday parties.
The other book is The Art of Alice in Wonderland by Stephanie Lovett Stoffel (Smithmark, 1998), and it is basically a collection of Alice illustrations. I just like to thumb through it. It's larger than All Things Alice, which I own, but with fewer pages. In other words, it's less overwhelming!
