The Mad Hatter’s Cocktail Party


“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn’t be. And what it wouldn’t be, it would. You see?” – Alice in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll.

‘We’re all mad here!‘ so with that in mind, we decided to adopt ‘The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party’ from Alice in Wonderland and create fabulous and unique cocktail party ideas for you to recreate at home! Perhaps you are celebrating your Unbirthday, or having a croquet game in your backyard?
