A crazy tea party

Do you want to escape everyday life like Alice once did? Then invite a few friends and decorate your table as in Alice in Wonderland.

"No time, no time!" The white rabbit scolds, before jumping into Alice's mirror and disappearing. Alice follows him and lands in Wonderland, where rules and conventions are suddenly upside down: size changes in seconds, a bizarre tea party celebrates the five o'clock tea in the endless loop, a fat egg operates with Alice's bizarre wit and the Queen of Hearts threatens to behead all.

Long live the wonderland! Time to celebrate this classic!
