Have all the party information available. You will need the day, time, place and phone number where guests can reply. These should all go onto the Mad Hatter tea party invitations along with any instructions for dressing.
Decide on a plan of action. There are many ways you can go when creating these invitations. It is simple to just stick with one type of invitation rather than making them all different. You can use a Queen of Hearts theme, with playing cards as part of the invitation, or you can even make your invitations look like top hats.
Decorate your invitations. No matter what type of invitation you decide to send, use a lot of creativity when you decorate. Using black and red is always a good bet with this invitation, and although in some invites it can be tacky, you can even use glitter. This invitation is meant to be fun and loud.
Give the invitations something extra. Since this is a Mad Hatter tea party, you can make your invitations even better by adding a verse from Chapter Seven in "Alice in Wonderland." This is the chapter that the party is essentially coming from, so feel free to add a quote or rhyme to your invitation.
Deliver your tea party invitations. Since this is such an unconventional party, don't feel you need to be so boring as to mail your invitations. Try hand-delivering your invitations dressed as the Cheshire Cat. You could even be the Hare or Alice in Wonderland. This makes the invitee that much more excited to see what this wonderful tea party is going to hold.
Tips and warnings
- If your invitation is an odd size and you can't find an envelope, consider making your own.
