Ever since I was a little girl, I've loved the magical world of Alice in Wonderland–where games of croquet are played with flamingo mallets and hedgehog balls, a perpetually late rabbit frantically hops around in a three piece suit and wonky tea parties occur, complete with rabbits and mice as guests. Luckily my best friend, Lauren, shares my love for all things Wonderland and in light of the upcoming sequel we hosted a brightly colored tea party–complete with glassware from Warsaw Cut Glass–that even the Mad Hatter would envy.
Thankfully Lauren and I have a long-standing relationship with the proprietors of Warsaw Cut Glass who allowed us to raid their showroom and create this beautiful tea party. While we didn't want to go too far down the rabbit hole with our theme, we definitely wanted it to include a colorful whimsy that Wonderland featured all throughout the film. We started off with the essentials: a beautiful glass teapot and tea cups hand-cut with the Gina pattern, cream and sugar serving pieces hand-cut in the Rye pattern and finally a beautifully monogrammed cookie jar in the mix with our favorite lemon pound cake bites. Our tea party was completed with a Mosser Glass cake stand, citrus juicer and mixing bowls in Jadeite. Insert yummy snacks like pound cake bites, cookie sandwiches and macaroons and our tea party was worthy of a Red Queen.
While each of the pieces seen above are absolutely stunning, the rich history and artisan craftsmanship are truly one-of-a-kind. Warsaw Cut Glass been in operation since 1911 and still operates using the same cutting techniques and tools as when it first opened. I can't emphasize enough that each pieces is hand-cut and one of a kind. To watch the full cutting process from start to finish, view the video below. You'll be blown away by the amazing craftsmanship and time that goes into each piece!
In addition to the patterns seen on their site, Warsaw Cut Glass does custom orders that can be tailored to your unique gifting needs. Let's just say this girl may have to take her love of Alice in Wonderland to the next level with themed stemware or even a platter.
