Alice in Wonderland inspiration

Check out pictures from Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland. I've been so inspired by these photos. I would love to throw a party with this as the theme/inspiration! It's got sort of a whimsical yet goth tea party kind of thing going on. I saw some amazing black teacups and saucers at an antique shop the other day that only furthered my inspiration. Who knows...maybe this Halloween....
