Organizer Jen Stadler says all tea party goers are encouraged to wear a hat of any kind, as well as funky, fun clothing.

“I tried to make a tacky hat, and they’re really easy and simple to make, or you can wear a hat that you already have,” she advises. “I would just say have fun with it: wear your polka dots and plaids together, or whatever looks wacky and tacky to you. Have fun with it, why not?”

For $15 a ticket, guests can expect the true Mad Hatter Tea Party experience, filled with riddles, games, finger foods, and of course, various teas.

Although Stadler has never thrown an event like this before, she says she wanted to hold a fundraiser and the idea of a tea party came naturally.

“I sell steeped teas, and it’s really great tea, so I thought, why not throw a tea party.  I’m not a serious person… ever. I like to joke and have fun and it’s something fun, and different and entertaining.”

In addition to being a fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon, it’s also for a good cause. All proceeds from the event, including a silent auction, will go towards the Women’s Resource Society. Stadler says she hopes to raise at least $1,000 for the organization she says helps so many in our community.

Tickets are available at Whole Wheat & Honey and Endurance Tattoo, where buying a ticket will earn you 20 per cent off on your next tattoo.
