This precious ALICE IN WONDERLAND TEA PARTY was submitted by Sharon Chase of Princess Sharon Events. Such an inspiring party and story…. Sharon and her team created this party for eighteen little girls who were being treated for cancer. What beautiful little sweethearts! I’m sure you touched their hearts forever, Sharon!
Sharon said– This party was very special to me. We created this Alice in Wonderland/Mad Hatter tea party for 18 little girls who were being treated for cancer. We sometimes work with The Jimmy Fund at Dana Farber Cancer institute in Boston, to give these little girls a day of magic, away from their regular pokes and prods and uncomfortable and often painful hospital visits. Also VERY importantly, I wanted to let the parents of these children experience the joy of seeing their babies having FUN! Singing, dancing, twirling, giggling, laughing, something that they don’t get to experience with these girls day to day during treatment.
I loved the colors and the activities at this party. We had musical story time, beading, elaborate dessert tables with designer monogrammed Oreos, tea pot cookies, pastries, and an ice cream buffet with drippy toppings. There were mismatched tea cups with, yes, saucers on TOP! Also sherbet-colored tutus, tiny tea cup and flower headdresses, and giant jeweled flower wands! I did sparkly face painting and had paper goods created to match the theme with “eat me” and “drink me” tags with satin ribbon and deep purple feather plumes with jewels for place cards. We dressed the tables in matching linens, whimsically colored sashes as well as gorgeous flamingo and tea cup towers adorning the tables. We also, of course, had yummy, fluffy pillows scattered on the floor for cozy seating for the musical story time. I played the Queen of Hearts (friends and relatives and volunteers also dressed up as all of the different characters!)
The topsy-turvy cake had written on it words of inspiration like “love”, “hope”, and “strength.” We had magic dust necklaces and shiny purple and lime green tea cup favors filled with treats. What a treat to see all of the faces in the room light up! I can’t wait to do it again
