Events A to Z: Q is for Queen of Hearts Themed Parties!
One of the greatest things about Alice in Wonderland is the amazing variety of party themes that come out of it. You can do Classic Alice (think book illustrations), Disney Alice, Mad Hatter Tea Parties, Dark Alice (think Jabberwoky) but my all time favorite type of Alice Party is definitely focused on the Queen of Hearts.
This character is so much fun to base a party around because she is a unique yet lovable villain. She’s funny and fun to watch, and has defining characteristics that make planning a Queen of Hearts party simple.
Let’s look at some of those characteristics:
- She’s the Queen of Hearts from the deck of cards, so you can include some casino-style decorations, especially for an adult party.
- It is apparently really fun to dress up as her. A quick search for “Queen of Hearts Costumes” on Pinterest left me blown away at all of the different ways you could take the costume and make-up aspect. From little tutus for small girls, to full length ball gowns, to the predictable “slutty Queen”, there are TONS of options
- Red roses were a big issue for the Queen of Hearts, especially in the Disney movie, so this makes your centerpieces and some of your decor pretty easy. I came across a TON of Red Rose Cupcakes and Cakes on Pinterest, too, which could really add a fun element to your sweets table.
- Black, white and red and her dominating colors, but you also see some yellow in there too. These are really great colors to work with for your decor and your food. You could easily do a candy buffet with all red and white candy and use your serving trays, tablecloths, and other tableware to fold in the black and yellow colors for a really cool effect.
