Yesterday my friend TJ invited me and a few others to sample her new venture, The Wonderland Tea Party Co. which specialises in Alice in Wonderland themed tea parties for grown ups. Check out her beautiful website here. I of course decided to dress up for the event and as the Queen of Hearts is my favourite character I grabbed my garden flamingo and anything with red roses and hearts and voila, “Off with her head!”. My friends really got into the spirit of it all too and arrived dressed in some fab outfits and Liz even bought her dodo statue along!
The idea of the afternoon was to enjoy a feast of amazing cakes with lots and lots of tea (there are several different types provided) and as I chain drink tea this had great appeal. The table set up was amazing and TJ does all the work for you, she decorates, arranges food and even clears up for you, so that you are left to enjoy the amazing spread she provides without having to lift a finger. I loved all the little touches, like the conversation starters written on tea spoons, the themed music, the fine china tea cups with their paper labels and the edible keys made from chocolate. The portions are generous too and we all agreed we were big fans of the scones, so as well as looking amazing, everything tastes fantastic.
TJ provides several options for you’re party, we had the dressing up box, which I highly recommend as it’s a real laugh for any photo loving people like us but you can also add garden games and shisha smoking (for those who love the caterpillar character) to your party package. Below are a few pics of the afternoon, apologies for the picture quality as these are from my phone but we were having too much fun to take the proper camera!
If you want to hire The Wonderland Tea Party Co. to cater your party or event the contact details are below and TJ will come direct to you as ‘It’s always tea time’ in her world.
