Mad Hatter Tea Party – 7th Birthday

Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter Tea Party

Mad Hatter Tea Party Dessert Table by Sweet Scarlet Designs

This was the Mad Hatter Tea Party I designed for my daughter's 7th birthday. After being rained-out and then postponed, the party finally went ahead. Although I had plans for it being a beautiful garden party, it had to be held under cover as the ground was too wet and mushy. But, we got there in the end and a lovely time was had by all.

The design I had in mind was a very modern interpretation of the Alice in Wonderland and Mad Hatter theme. I contrasted a modern Chevron pattern with vintage silverware pieces like the candelabra, and silver teapots and decanters. The beautiful gold teaset really made the whole table 'pop' and I was so lucky I found bits and pieces of this set at flea markets and on eBay to put together.

The party itself was a lot of fun with 'old school' activities and games like sack races, pass-the-parcel, horse rides, a photo booth (with printable Alice in Wonderland props) and croquet! Yes, I even found a croquet set on eBay! All the guests received co-ordinating ribbon wands, which I made, trimmed with name tags, which come as an editable PDF file in this printable set.

Food included vanilla cupcakes, layered jellies, teapot and teacup cookies, assorted candies, lollipops, cake pops and ice cream – which I made myself (apart from the ice cream!).

I hope you enjoy this party as much as I enjoyed putting it together.

This printable set is now available in the Sweet Scarlet Designs Etsy shop.

Printable Easter Collection

Sweet Scarlet's Printable Easter Collection Dessert Table

Easter herald's the arrival of Spring!

And that is exactly what I wanted to capture in this fun, colorful and bright Printable Easter Collection.

I was inspired by the some beautiful grosgrain ribbon for the striped pattern and the bunnies and bows seemed the perfect partners.

I added fresh flowers to this dessert table to make it even brighter. My kids had a great time helping me paint the striped eggs. I used different widths and textures of pastel-colored ribbon to decorate the cake and candy jars, to tie in with the stripes.

For the food I made classic double-vanilla cupcakes, from my favorite recipe – which turns out perfectly every time. I also made "Easter Bark" from white chocolate and candies. This was such an easy party food to make and it looks good too. I finished the table with traditional lemonade in glass bottles with paper straws and loads of Easter favors. The centrepiece Easter cake is a 6" vanilla buttercake.

This DIY Easter Printable Collection includes 2" Cupcake Toppers, Bunting, Large Swing Tags (perfect for favors), Editable Buffet Tags, Straw Flags, Large Favor Tags, Mini Party Flags, Candy Bar Wrappers, Water Bottle Labels and two 8"x10" Party Signs – "Happy Easter" and "Welcome to our Egg Hunt".

This set is available now in my Etsy shop for just $10 here: Sweet Scarlet Designs Etsy Shop

I wish you all a very happy and safe Easter.

Be Mine Valentine

Valentine's Day, February 14 is almost here, and to celebrate I've designed this set of DIY Valentine's Printables.

This set features a "Love" theme incorporating aqua blue with the traditional pink and red. I'm really happy with how this set turned out – I hope you like it too.

The dessert table I styled has loads of candy, dotted with the most beautiful red velvet ribbon as candy jar decorations. Vanilla cupcakes and traditional heart-shaped lollipops form the centrepiece of the table, surrounded by decadent Jelly Delights, teeny Choc Cups, wrapped chocolate bars and mini choc bites and watermelon cordial. Red tissue daisies form the backdrop.

This set features loads and loads of tags, favor cards and editable straw flags which can all be used on your Valentine's favors for family, friends and at school. Just print, trim & create!

I'll have a Valentine's Day Favor blog post coming up soon.

An 8"x10" Party Sign completes the scene and looks great on it's own too.

This COMPLETE printable set is now available in my Etsy shop.

Smaller sets of TAGS, CANDY WRAPPERS and the PARTY SIGN are also available.
