Alice in Wonderland what a feast for the eyes and the senses, this is exactly what we thought when we were asked to be involved in a collaboration shoot with La Bella Vita Photography and Kimi Doll Makeup. We decided to recreate the tea party as the iconic scene of this classic but we wanted to add a vintage quirky twist and this is how we achieved it:
We selected key furniture pieces deciding to use a vintage lounge to create a feeling of opulance and lounge chairs to create the quirky vintage vibe. In order to achieve the right scale against these pieces we opted to lower our antique trestle table.
We included vintage mismatched china pieces in rich colours from Vintage China Hire to keep it on vintage but the mismatched pieces added the quirky touch we wanted to highlight.
Add an abundance of cakes, cupcakes and macaroons from Wild Rose Sweets and Styling and you have your key pieces to create the look.
To style our inspiration was colour, textures and whimsy so the key element for us was flowers and foliage on mass. Roses, gerbera daisies, poppy’s, asparagus fern, old mans beard and moss were used to style the table, cakes, teacup & teapots bringing the perfect Alice and Wonderland Mad Hatters tea party to life.
