Do you ever wish you could step right into your book? Yes? Oh good, you’re in the right place! I was worried for a moment it was just another #librarianproblem! With a little imagination and a little craftiness, you’ll be stepping Through the Looking Glass in no-time! While it wouldn’t normally occur to me to want to punt hedgehogs with flamingos or party with a life-size deck of cards, when my bff (also a librarian) and I were looking at a belated combined-summer birthday party, it just seemed right to do it literary-style. And anyway, how else would you throw an Unbirthday? So let me share with you some ideas for throwing your own Mad Hatter Tea Party!
With a little help from Pinterest, I went all out with the decor. If you’re going to do a theme, I figure you should do it justice.
