- Play on the Queen-have invitations worded as if the Queen is summoning the guests to an Unbirthday party
- Mad Hatter invite-invite guests to a mad hatter tea-the invite can be shaped like a teacup or include a teabag inside.
- The invitation could be playing card with the picture of the honoree (birthday girl/boy if it's a birthday party) in place of the faces.
- A tea-party set-up is a must! You should have a long table like the Mad Hatter's table, covered in a table cloth and set with various miss-matched dishes, teacups and saucers, and tea pots-of course if this is a small child's party, you want these to be unbreakable!
- Playing cards (which you can by like 6 packs together for $1 at the Dollar Store!)-Hang up playing cards all over the place. Make a playing card garland with red roses.
- Hang the face of the Cheshire cat in a tree or, if indoors, on a fake tree or on the wall.
- Bright streamers and Paper pompoms are perfect for an Alice party.
- If it's a child's party, have a child's tunnel at the door with a sign that says, "The party lies down the rabbit hole!" They have to crawl through the rabbit hole to get there.
- Small bites and finger foods are perfect for an Alice party
- Little cakes, cupcakes or sugar cookies that read "Eat Me."
- Drinks or little glass bottles full of drink (Again, the Dollar Store would probably have something) that read "Drink Me."
- Hot tea should be included for the tea party!
Perfect for little children-
- Croquet, of course! If it's a child's party, buy a child's croquet set. Instead of the mallets, use plastic pink flamingos. If you get super creative, you can make the balls look like little hedgehogs by covering them with brown socks and gluing eyes on them. For the needles, you can probably glue old pieces of carpet or you could buy cheap plush hedgehogs for the balls.
- Crafts-painting roses or decorate a mad hatters hat. You can buy wooden flowers or felt hats at a craft or dollar store and have kids color and decorate their flowers/hats with buttons, sparkles, etc.
- For older kids, they can paint pottery.
- Musical chairs is great for an Alice party. Another fun kids' game is "Follow the Rabbit." Have the "rabbit" wear bunny ears-all the kids have to line up after the rabbit. Play music and the kids have to mimic whatever the rabbit does.
- Sugar cube race-like an egg race, but with sugar cubes on little teaspoons.
- Timed scavenger hunt (going with the stopwatch theme)
- Cheshire hunt-pin up little Cheshire cat smiles all over the yard or a room and kids have to count how many they can find. A prize can be given to whoever gets it right or closest.
- Pin the smile on the Cheshire cat.
- Edibles are always a hit-you can put them in checkered box or bag.
- For girls, little hand-held mirrors, white gloves, tea cups or mini tea sets.
- Playing cards
