Event: The Alice Boutique Birmingham Launch

The tale of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland has captivated the imagination of children and adults for over a century, so much so that it has even spawned a TV series, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland.

It has also inspired Tracie Bedwood to open a themed boutique in Birmingham's Great Western Arcade.

The Alice Boutique brings this story to life with a wide range of exclusive Alice designs inspired by John Tenniel's original illustrations, including fine-bone china and stationary and even a complete tea party set, all designed and made in the UK.

I was invited along to The Bureau on Colmore Row to celebrate the launch and fall down the rabbit hole.

Leading us downstairs to a private room, a sign reading "Down the rabbit hole" was a taste of things to come.

In the hidden room a table was laid full to the brim with Alice goodies, and there was a host of fun accessories to play dress up. From a golden picture frame to an Alice apron, a Cheshire cat mask and bunny ears, we had lots of fun taking pictures and playing croquet with a faux flamingo!

Everything was imaginatively laid out too, with little labels saying Eat Me and Drink me on the food and drink.

We had a sneak peak of the fabulous products available to buy too, from tote bags, notebooks and mugs to cards, coasters and cake stands!

Thank you to The Alice Boutique for hosting the event, I know where's first on my list for adorable gifts!

  1. This looks like a wonderful and fun event. I already saw some pics over on Tings blog. Alice is not really my cup of tea, I find it a bit weird and overrated as a story, but the tea sets look very cute and very British :) Hope you're well and we'll speak soon.
