A Modern Alice in Wonderland Wedding

A Modern Alice in Wonderland Wedding

This modern & whimsical Alice in Wonderland Inspired Wedding theme by the super-sweet Rebecca of A Blissful Nest will instantly transport you to fairytale-land!  Between the vibrant colors, perfectly eclectic place settings, larger-than-real-life bridal bow, and movie-inspired paper details, Rebecca definitely brought the magic of Wonderland to life!

I’m especially loving the colorful tissue pom “chandelier” (such a great DIY element!) and special attention to sparkly details – like rock candy stir sticks and rhinestone-bedecked bridal bouquet and ribbon buckles. This is fantastic inspiration for everything from fairytale weddings to birthday parties (or UN-birthdays of course!).

PARTY DETAILS, as told by Rebekah

::
“I thought you might like the visual eye candy of this Alice In Wonderland inspired shoot! It is bright and bold with a modern flair; taking more after the Tim Burton version of the movie. It’s styled for a wedding-related event, but could be easily adapted into a children’s party with fun twists. A typically Mad Hatter tea party was set with vintage china, rich desserts, and whimsical knick-knacks.

First we selected a color palette of red, black, hot pink, and turquoise, then used patterns in unexpected combination’s to add just enough quirkiness. I used lots of embellishments such as mix matched ribbons,  rhinestone buckles, and layering fabrics, placemats and napkins. This creates depth on a table and ties all the elements together.

The best part of a tea party is the food! A triple layer mouse cake with whipped cream topped with fresh berries, cupcakes with strawberries with a yummy glaze over the top and wide array of assorted candy play to the wonderful indulgence of a sweet afternoon tea party.

Of course you have to have favors for your guests to take home. These little white boxes had candy ring pops nestled inside on a bed of sixlets. Then tied with some of our Alice in Wonderland inspired party printables.”
