Alice in Wonderland is one of the most recognizable stories since the 19th century and makes for a lot of neat ideas for adults who are looking for a great idea for a theme party . Think playing cards, a game of croquet, heart decorations, tea, etc. Here are some fabulous ideas for planning an adult Alice in Wonderland theme party.
Alice in Wonderland Invitations – If invitations will be sent via mail, consider making them shaped like cards, hearts, or even Mad Hatter. These invitations could simply be made from construction paper and have a tracer for Mad Hatter which won’t be expensive. If the invitations are being sent online, perhaps have the background of the page be a scene from Alice in Wonderland. This would only cost the host a few moments of his or her time in order to find the perfect background image.
Dressing for an Alice in Wonderland theme party – Ask the guests show up as characters. This could be something as simple as wearing a bunny suit, dressing up as the Mad Hatter or Alice’s Cheshire cat – even just a funny hat. You could provide rabbit ears for the guests who don’t show up in costume, or you could give each guest playing card with a character’s name written on it. Make your own costume by simply cutting two rectangles from a piece of large cardboard and painting it like a card. Attach some straps and wear it over your shoulder. You could also use face paint to look like a card.
Alice in Wonderland theme party games for adults – Set up a croquet game. It’s a simple game which, if the equipment isn’t already owned, can be owned for a low price. This can easily be turned into a drinking game. Consider having someone be the Queen and have her set the rules when everyone arrives to the party (perhaps the guest of honor). There could be a simple phrase or action that people cannot say or do throughout the entire night. If they do, they must take a drink.
Food for an Alice in Wonderland theme party – Set up a long table with various foods, especially cupcakes. You can label them “eat me” or “drink me.” Also consider adding having a constant supply of tea for the tea party, but also some miscellaneous drinks (alcoholic and non) for those who don’t drink tea. Consider an oversized cake. Portabella mushrooms would work well. You could also bake a loaf of oversized bread.
Alice in Wonderland theme party home made decorations – Decorating for an Alice in Wonderland theme party is a piece of cake! Cut construction paper in the shape of hearts and place throughout the house. Get a few decks of cards at the dollar store and throw those around randomly. Print off the characters from the movie and display those as well. Make colorful flowers out of tissue paper. Anything you can find that’s oversized will work wonderfully for an Alice in Wonderland theme party; sunglasses, chairs, pens, cakes, etc. Have fun!
