Alice's Wonderland

I fell in love today. Head over heels, butterflies in tummy kinda love…. With a café! But not just any café, oh no, not this one. It was an Alice in Wonderland, garden party themed cake heaven. The kinda dreamland where all the good cakes get to go.  Sticky candy pink cup cakes were stacked sky high on delicate antique glass cake stands. Jars of fluffy marshmallows decorated the windows, alongside an endless line of tarts and tea- cups, pastries and pies, muffins and meringues… will I continue? Inspired by this ambient café,  I have collected some Alice in Wonderland themed images and desirables, which I hope will tide you over until the real deal movie comes our way this winter. Enjoy!

Pics from my afternoon tea in my new favourite cafe, Dejeuner sur l'Herbe, 15 minutes from Biarritz in Cambo les Bains.

I'm pretty sure this enchanting bed by Attila Design will take me one step closer to wonderland! Either way it's a good enough excuse to pop over to Helsinki to check it out.

How else is Alice going to discover the rabbit hole if mr.rabbit doesn't show her the way?

Fantastical is the only word I can think of to describe Alidra Alic's jewellery. Her site is worth the click if even just to gaze in wonder at the magical photography and styling.

Elena Kalis's photography is like a dream. I had to tear myself away from her site to continue this post!

Tea has been served! Chelsea Greene paints a magical world of woodland friends, check her out!

Can't have tea without biscuits! Visit Kerry Lemon's Etsy shop and pick up a contemporary print for your good self!

One simply can't have a garden party without the Queen of Tarts. She's one of many wonderful illustrations by The Poppy Tree.

Now we know what to wear when Johnny invites us to the premiere ;) Photography by Andreas Stavrinides.

Looks like Mr.Rabbit has lost his watch...finders keepers! See more in The Steam Punk Trunk's Etsy shop.

"Now statistics prove, Prove that you've one birthday. Imagine just one birthday every year
Ah, but there are 364 unbirthdays, Precisely why we're gathered here to cheer!"
Now you can celebrate your own very merry unbirthday with this Mad Hatter Tea Party Necklace! Available in Rustic Rose's Fairytale Etsy shop.
