"Alice in wonderland birthday party"!! thoughts? ideas?

My DD is turning 8 this month!

I want to plan a dress up party for her "Alice in Wonderland" style!

I want to have eccentric decorations....beads, mis-match table cloths/decor, plates, etc.

I also want our "outfits" to be funky; lace, beads, long poofy skirts/dresses, jewelry, etc...

fun froo-froo party foods and this highly sought after RAINBOW CAKE

I saw a blog post by someone not too long ago that had this as a party theme...i think she made some of her outfits and her decor too...

so does anyone have any good links to point me to, or tips/ideas as to where to find some goodies to pull this off?

I am also going to post an iso for some of the stuff too...I plan to scavenger at thrift stores for some finds...and i may have some already....

any ideas for any foods/snacks/punches

thanks in advance for any tips!

well, obviously there should be a tea party involved. i think your best bet is to hit up thrift stores and yard sales for funky plates and dishes. i think this is an excellent idea for a party!

yeah! tea party style for sure! lace, pearls, teacups and mismatched plates, dead flowers (and live ones too), our fun outfits, hats and a tiara, fun finger foods, a large deck of cards, punch bowl, bright candies, a large white bunny stuffed animal and a flamingo, haha...i found a few blogs that had some ideas....but for the life of me i cant find the diy/crafty site that i originally saw the party pics!!!!

Is the party going to be indoors or outside?
