We fell down the rabbit hole and in love with the concept of this whimsical and vintage inspired Mad Hatter Tea styled shoot. With gorgeous costumes, stacked tea cups and a menagerie of Alice in Wonderland inspired confections, this theme had us all going Mad!
Alice, the Mad Hatter and the March Hare enjoyed their tea at a full table set with gorgeous sequin, lace and velvet inspired fabrics, over sized chairs, and of course stacked teacups. Lace wrapped invitations, vintage books, clocks, keys and birdcages helped to set the scene for this darling shoot.
Alice wore a custom cream and blue tutu complete with lace, a gold sequin heart and a coordinating gold sequin bow along with lace gloves. The Mad Hatter donned a custom pink and cream tutu, with a pink rosette, blue and gold lace inspired bodice. She wore a Victorian style blue lace collar, cream and black lace wrist cuffs along with pink Victorian style crocheted pink leg warmers adorned with lace and pearl accents. A petite velvet Mad Hatter style hat with gold sequin accents completed her ensemble. Finally The March Hare completed the trio with a darling sport jacket, bow tie, and of course custom made ears.
Sweets included a pink and blue Victorian style cake topped with a custom made gold glitter “Eat Me” cake topper, pink and blue playing card cookies, stacked gold and pink cookies, bird cage inspired cake pops, petite Eat Me cookies, quatrefoil cookies and cupcakes with custom made toppers inspired by the vintage style printables.
Ornate frames suspended from trees, avante guarde style masks, paper straws and embroidered pillows added a touch of whimsy to a small picnic area.
This darling shoot had us all feeling like we truly were in Wonderland!
