5 WEEKS OUT

Décor

  • The perfect setting for this party would be outside, under a tree, with paper flowers hanging from the branches and small windmills with which guests can run around on the grass.


2 WEEKS OUT

To cater with

  • Create a colourful party atmosphere with striped or polka dot plates and beautiful dainty teacups for the grown-ups. 
  • Remember, it is essentially a tea party. 
  • For vintage cups, raid your mother's cupboards or buy at second-hand stores.
  • Find pretty, bright paper plates or boxes at most retailers or party stores.

Edible treats

  • Recreate the "drink me" and "eat me" looks of the Alice in Wonderland story by putting labels on your party favours.
  • Rainbow lollies: use a bit of water to make the lolly just wet enough to be sticky. Stick the wet label onto it and let it dry.

Heart-shaped "EAT ME" cookies

You will need the following to decorate 10 cookies:

  • 250ml icing sugar
  • 25 to 50ml boiling water
  • Food colouring
  • Ziploc bag

  1. In a small bowl mix the icing sugar with water that has just boiled.
  2. Use only 5ml water to start off with and mix it thoroughly.
  3. The mixture should be thick but not a paste. 
  4. Add more water if necessary.
  5. Scoop ¼ of the mixture into the plastic bag, then go back to the bowl and add food colouring.
  6. Start with one drop and add more until you have the desired colour. 
  7. Use the back of a teaspoon, and spread the icing over your cookies.
  8. Put them on a sheet of wax paper to set.
  9. Cut a very small hole in one of the corners of the plastic bag.
  10. Use the bag as an icing piper, and write the words "eat me" on the dry icing.
