So here are pictures and description of the Alice in Wonderland Dinner Party. I plan to discuss my preparation in a later post.
On the Menu:
Wonderland Fruit Tree
An edible arrangement of orange slices, grapes, strawberries and cantaloupe
The Caterpillar’s Mushroom Dip
Mushrooms with Garlic & Parsley
Royal Butterfly Pasta, served with Red Queen or White Queen Sauce
Bow-tie Noodles, with Spaghetti or Alfredo Sauce
Stuffed with Parmesan Cheese, Bread Crumbs, Mushrooms, Diced Onions, Parsley, White Wine, and Butter
Twice Baked And Now I’m Late Potatoes
Twice Baked Potatoes, with your choice of traditional toppings
White Rabbit Cupcakes
Devil’s Food cupcakes, with Coconut and Marshmallows
Checkered Red Velvet & White base, yellow cake and strawberry as the middle tier, crowned with strawberry. (pictures to come)
Discussed, but not made:
Bread-and-butterflies, Off with Her Head Steak, The Knave’s Stolen Tarts
Here are a couple food shots:
Wonderland Fruit Tree and Stuffed Mushrooms
Andrea’s White Rabbit Cupcakes
Another shot of the Wonderland Cake. What surprisingly became one of my favorite elements.
For a whimsical touch, I had “hats” for everyone to wear during the course of the evening.
Laura as “The White Rabbit,” Andrea as “The Caterpillar,” Laura as “The Mad Hatter,” Jess as one of the Tweedles, Alicia as “The Queen of Hearts,” Crystal as the “Cheshire Cat,” and Lyz as “Alice”
Crazyfun good times. ;-)
Anyone else have some fun themed food ideas to share?
