I am at a very exciting time in my life, getting ready to move into a wonderful new house. I can’t wait to start decorating and sharing it all with all of you, my wonderful readers, but in the meantime, I am so busy packing, I have not a spare moment to blog. This Baby Shower with an Alice in Wonderland theme is by far the most popular, most pinned and most viewed of all my posts, so I am bringing it to you again today, perhaps you weren’t following Celebrate and Decorate back when I hosted this party. I know my photography skills have improved a lot since then, but if theme parties are to your liking, this one should be a theme you host once in your lifetime! Everyone had a wonderful time at the Alice in Wonderland – themed Baby Shower I hosted for my niece. I incorporated lots of fun and bright colors throughout the party space. To cover large pictures on the walls, and add fun and color to the decor, I created crepe paper backdrops, or hung lace fabric panels. No one even knew there were large pictures behind the party backdrops!
Guests were welcomed to the Shower by the White Rabbit and all of his pocket watches and clocks. The tiered plates offered up favors of small bottles of candies with tags which read “take me”.
The party was full of color with lots of paper lanterns and a wide variety of colorful fabrics. I used different tablecloths and fabrics on the dining tables and the console tables.
Silver chargers recycled by being painted pastel colors and then had circles of Alice – themed papers Mod Podged onto them. Teapots of colorful flowers were displayed on raised cake plates, while the table was scattered with pages from an Alice in Wonderland book, keys, ceramic mushrooms and tiny glass bottles.
The Dormouse from Alice in Wonderland popped out of a floral teapot to make an appearance at the shower. In the background you can see the keyhole pattern on one of the customized chargers.
A quote from Alice in Wonderland appeared on this cleverly painted framed bulletin board which suggest the Cheshire Cat was nearby.
Colorful flowers were arranged in teapots set upon footed cake plates all down the table.
“Jabberwocky Juice” was offered as an appetizer, this was a chilled sweet watermelon soup.
Individual casseroles of “Mad Hatter’s Bow ties and Cheese were offered along with a salad of baby greens, strawberries, mandarin oranges and an assortment of finger sandwiches.
Individual beverage bottles adorned with washi tape, colorful paper straws and “Drink Me” tags from Anders Ruff, begged guests to fill them up.
Fun and colorful hats were on display throughout the party space. You can learn how to create the crepe paper backdrops here.
The Cheshire Cat sits nearby keeping an eye on the dessert cupcakes which were served in pretty china tea cups.
Pink Lemonade cupcakes were decorated in pastel colors and topped with candy flowers and butterflies.
An assortment of cookies were offered, notice the teacup cookies say “drink me” and the hearts say “eat me” to incorporate the Alice in Wonderland theme.
Cookies were displayed on a table with colorful hats, a painted mushroom, Alice in Wonderland quotes printed and placed in brightly painted frames, along with a hedgehog hoping the Queen of Hearts doesn’t pick him for a game of croquet.
I had a delightful time throwing this Baby Shower, I hope you enjoyed the pictures! I would love to see pictures of your Alice in Wonderland – themed event!
