Mood Board Monday: Tea Party

It’s finally spring and we’re back with more great party ideas!

I’ve been knocking around the idea for some sort of vintage tea party board for a while now, but my inspiration was a bit lacking.  Initially I had been shying away from the whole “Alice in Wonderland” theme as I thought it would be a bit too cliche, but then I came upon a post on Decor4All featuring an Alice  inspired Halloween party.  I really loved the way they  had incorporated the theme while still keeping with a muted color scheme.  The wheels started turning again and I came up with this.  I decided to stick with my initial vintage theme, but added  some fun Alice inspired details.

The thing that I really love about this theme is that it is so versatile and can be easily modified to fit almost any party or occasion.  Take a look at this vintage eclectic Alice in Wonderland tea party found on the Nellie Bellie blog.  I love the way they’ve used playing cards as bunting.katiesbirthday_thumb

Or what about this sweet pink and blue tea party baby shower from Australian event stylist Kiss Me Kate.  I could also see this exact theme being lovely for a bridal shower or a first birthday party.alice baby
