If you’ve been following our blog or Instagram account, you know that we’ve been on quite the Alice in Wonderland kick this year – we loved the inspiration we got for our lines from the story, and how whimsical and fun the whole thing is! It got us thinking about how cute it would be to throw a whole Alice in Wonderland party, just like the Unbirthday Party from the book!
Of course, being a swimwear company, we knew it had to be a pool party, so we’re here with everything you need to throw a very merry unbirthday pool part of your own.
Anything eccentric and odd you can get your hands on will most likely be perfect for your party. For ours, we gathered an assortment of teapots, bird cages, old books, vintage chairs, and lots of other odds and ends. We even created our own checkerboard floor with stick on flooring, which made a fun spot to take photos! Here’s a list of ideas you could use for decor:
• Vintage luggage & suitcases
• Playing cards
• Tea sets
• Colorful hats
• Unique keys
• Old books
• Quirky cake stands
Just like in the original story, we had a variety of colorful pastries and treats at our party! You can choose to make them yourself, or find a local bakery that crafts beautiful cakes and goodies. If you want a full meal, you might have to be a little more creative to fit it into the theme! Some of our ideas include:
• Mini cakes
• Vintage sodas
If you decide you need more activities than just swimming at your pool party, you have a few fun options that will make your guests feel like they just stepped into the story themselves.
Set up a little game of croquet on the grass nearby and start some friendly games! If you can, paint the mallets to resemble the flamingos they play with in Wonderland!
Pin the Grin on the Cheshire Cat
This one would be perfect for any younger attendees you have at your party. Print out a picture of the Cheshire Cat from the cartoon version of the movie, and let everyone take a turn trying to pin on the grin while blindfolded!
Everyone loves a photo opp! Set up a section of the patio with lots of fun props so guests can take the perfect pic for Instagram!
With all these tips, you’ll be sure to throw the best very merry unbirthday pool party possible! If you need a new suit for the event – one that was inspired by Alice in Wonderland itself – make sure you head over to our shop to pick one out!
