When the hostess of this baby shower contacted us, she said that the guest of honor was in love with the traditional Alice in Wonderland movie. She loved the tea party, rabbit and of course Alice’s blue dress. We used this as inspiration in designing and planning this beautiful baby shower. The Alice inspired invitations were designed with hints of lace and a blue frame to represent the blue from Alice’s dress. The dessert table is very simple and it sits on top of a blue dresser!
When shopping for this shower, we went to all types of thrift stores looking for mix matched china pieces. I wanted to bring a vintage feel to the shower and use real crystal I found some amazing pieces for pennies! In addition, I found this wonderful dresser. It was pretty banged up but I new immediately how to give it a little love and care. I bought it for an AMAZING $15 dollars and spent another $20 to refinish. So I refinished it and painted it an aqua blue color. I placed some beautiful Chantilly lace purchased from JoAnn’s fabric over top to give a vintage feel. The desserts topped the dresser included a topsy-turvy cake, strawberry whoppie pies and chocolate dipped pretzels on top and place a wall of paper pom poms behind it. We wanted to keep it simple and stunning. It turned out amazing.
The welcome table consisted of a large K made out of crepe paper rosettes, the frame invitation, pregnant wire dress form, and baby wishes signs for guest to sign. Another thrift store find was this beautiful baby carriage. I found it for $4 at the thrift store and knew it would be the perfect prop for our favors. A bottle of white spray paint spruced it right up! The favors were cupcakes baked by Carpe Cupcake, topped with beautiful fondant toppers from Cakes and Kids! We made the pink cupcake wrappers, with the pink doilies and Alice silhouette to complete the look. Throughout the room we created these little vignettes with stacked tea cups and beautiful pink gerber daisies
