One of them may be mad, and the other one may be madder, but the Mad Hatter and the March Hare totally have the right idea. You have but one birthday a year. But you’ve 364 unbirthdays.
If you treat each day like an unbirthday celebration, you’ll always have a purpose for pomp and circumstance. It’s a flawless plan, really. To help get you in the unbirthday mindset, we took the liberty of making some GIFs out of our most favorite parts of this scene between Alice in Wonderland and her best tea party pals. We’ve also included ways you can use these GIFs as celebration inspiration.
Enjoy. (And Merry Unbirthday!)
Pro tip from these two: Pointing is always festive.
Take “cheers” to a whole new level. Bonus points for not spilling if you attempt this at home.
Step one: Begin to sing. Step two: Have matching hats. Step three: Be awesomer than anyone has ever been.
We hate it when this happens. But don’t let a stuck tea cup ruin the fun. The party must go on!
If there’s an unbirthday party hiccup or issue, try to look this cool while you’re solving it.
When all else fails, get kooky.
Lead tea kettles in song. Duh.
Make sure you’ve counted all your guests correctly. You want enough party favors to go around!
Unbirthdays are best when dancing around in a circle with a giant cake on your head. They just are. We don’t make the rules. The Mad Hatter does.
Fireworks are a must.
And a Dormouse that rhymes. That’s also a must.
Pouring tea should be done as efficiently as possible. It can get cold, you know.
Also refreshments. Anything is good when dunked in tea.
Don’t forget, if you encounter a clean cup, you must MOVE DOWN MOVE DOWN MOVE DOWN.
Well done, friends!
P.S. If it happens to be anyone’s real birthday today, a hearty Happy (real) Birthday! We’re sorry it’s not your unbirthday, but never fear: it will be tomorrow.
