In the last few months we've seen an increase in discussions of Alice in Wonderland themes at birthday parties.
It's a fairly simple theme to use as the food is usually made up of easy-to-prepare finger food (with "Eat Me" written on it), decorations are readily available on the high street, and the whimsical costumes are timeless.
If you're looking for costume inspiration, you've got the simplicity of Alice or the Cheshire cat, or the more elaborate outfits of the Queen of Hearts and the Mad Hatter.
Don't have the time or patience to make your own? You'll find plenty of suitable outfits online, like this Alice in Wonderland outfit on the right from Fancydress.com (£23.90). This particular dress is the official option from Disney.
