Welcome to the 259th Tablescape Thursday!
A few years ago I came across Alice in Wonderland dishes in Tuesday Morning. I was pretty much ruined from the moment I saw them. It took visiting several TMs and ordering a few pieces on eBay, but I eventually collected enough to set a full table. I’ve created several fun tables over the last few years with this china; I’ll link to those at the end of this post in case you would like to check them out.
Recently, I came across some wonderful hand-crafted Alice in Wonderland items on Etsy and knew it was time to create another one.
The Alice in Wonderland theme is perfect for a birthday party or for an un-birthday party. If you have no idea what an un-birthday party is, you’ll want to watch the fun video in this previous post: You’re Invited to an Un-Birthday Party. Today is my Un-Birthday! Is it your’s too?
You may remember the bunnies from this previous table setting: Bunnies and Wisteria.
Since the White Rabbit kicks off this whole crazy adventure, he’s featured prominently in today’s table. He donned a red ribbon necktie for the occasion!
There was no time for baking this week so we’ll just imagine pretty cupcakes are hiding underneath the whimsical cake cover.
The Pottery Barn bunny cupcake stands continue the “White Rabbit-Alice in Wonderland” theme.
The napkins are tied with the cutest Alice in Wonderland tags found HERE.
In addition to holding our napkins, they would make great place card holders for the table. Each one is decorated with a sparkly, red heart.
I snagged a few close-up pics of the dishes from a previous tablescape post. The dinner plate has spiral lettering, pulling you down, down, down into the rabbit hole. The teacups (not featured in this table) have the same spiral writing. Love that!
This dishware designed by Paul Cardew features four different patterns for the salad plates Each depicts a character from Alice in Wonderland.
To keep this post from being too long, I’m not showing all four patterns here but you can see them all in the posts linked at the end.
I just found the Alice in Wonderland glasses about 6-9 months ago, so they are one of the few new items in today’s tablescape.
The red polka-dot straws with the “Drink Me” tags came from the same Etsy shop as the place card/napkin holders.
The last time our white bunny appeared in a table setting, he was holding an Easter egg: Bunnies and Wisteria
Today he’s running late. I hear it’s for a very important date! ;)
Hope you enjoyed this whimsical Alice in Wonderland table setting featuring a “white rabbit” theme.
Looking forward to the beautiful tables linked for this week’s Tablescape Thursday!
Bonus Pic: Brought the red geranium in from the deck for our red themed table setting. Can you believe how big it has gotten–there’s a chair under there somewhere!

Update: A few weeks ago, I made a change regarding how the links will display for Tablescape Thursday. They will display randomly each time you visit BNOTP so all participants will have a chance to have their link displayed near the top of the group of links. This change was made in response to participants concerns about not having their link near the top. As a reader, you’ll easily be able to tell which links you’ve already visited since those links will change color once clicked.
If you are participating in Tablescape Thursday, please be sure to add your permalink below, and not your general blog address. To get your permalink, click on your post name, then copy and paste the address that shows in the address bar, into the “url” box when you link up. If you need any assistance with adding a link, you’ll find a short 3 minute video explaining how to add your link and join the party HERE.
You’ll need to include a link in your post back to the party in order to link up and participate. That’s so visitors to your blog will be able to find the party and the other Tablescape Thursday participants.
If you would like to use the Tablescape Thursday logo button in your post, just copy and paste it to your computer and upload it to your post as you would any photo.
Please, don’t add your post name/blog name ALL IN CAPS…it tends to create big spaces between the rows of links.
Welcome! Thanks for coming to the party!
