I just love this. Why play regular croquet when you can have mallets with pink flamingos on them? That’s close to the way they played croquet in Alice in Wonderland!
These flamingo mallets would be fun for anytime, but absolutely perfect for an Alice in Wonderland themed party. I posted some ideas for that party theme before, including wacky foods, drinks, costumes, and decor. Just click on the label “Alice in Wonderland” below this post to see. Lots of fun with that kind of party whether it’s for kids, adults, or both.
These flamingos can be found for very little money at garage sales or GoodWill, etc. to attach to your croquet mallets. Brand new croquet sets are not cheap, so look for a used set if you don’t already have one. If you come across a whole flock of cheap pink flamingos you could buy extra to set around the croquet course for fun. Two of them could hold a sign between them that says “Royal Croquet Court” to welcome guests.
