I threw this Alice in Wonderland/ Mad Hatter Bridal shower for my friend Lauren who is getting married in May. I am her maid of honor and I knew I had to do something really special. Lauren has been known to dress up as Alice for Halloween, so that was my inspiration for this party. We had our Mad Hatter Tea Party Brunch at the Chef’s table lounge in the Kensington Riverside Inn in Calgary. The Chef’s Table manager Mike was very accommodating and the food was wonderful. They allowed us to bring in all of our own decor and dessert too! Please ignore the not so professional photos. I forgot my good camera so had to take all the photos with my iphone! Directly below is a photo of me with the bride, another bridesmaid and the mother of the bride.
This was the invitation I found on Etsy in Mountain Paper’s Shop . I thought it was just too perfect!
I wanted to use the table to look modern with a girly flare. I decided on white tablecloths with lots of pink and red accents.
I also used playing cards, tea cups, pearls, clocks, rabbits, feathers, lollipops and roses to pull from the Alice in wonderland theme.
The flower centerpieces were created in Alice in Wonderland teapots, sugar bowls and tea cups.
Topsy turvy centerpiece made out of vintage teacups….
Each girl had a cupcake served in a mix and match teacup and saucer….
The flowers had eyes like in the Disney cartoon….
The food was delicious and everyone had a wonderful time!

All in all, it turned out great and we had a really fun time. Thanks again to the Kensington Riverside inn. If you are looking for a great place for brunch or dinner in Calgary, try it out! You will be glad you did!
