My BFF is obsessed with all things Alice in Wonderland so what would be a more fitting theme then a mad hatter tea party for her shower?!

I made all the food myself and unfortunately didn't get any pictures of the culinary delights. The shower was held early September (a little late on the posting) so I served both minestrone and cheddar bacon soups along with various finger sandwiches and a mean chicken curry salad. I was SO busy I didn't get a lot of pictures of the decor period, but thought I would share what I had.

On to the best part!

The invitations


I used photoshop to put her face in place of Alice's and used this for the front of the invitation. She registered at two places on-line as well as Target so I made custom registry cards by taking old playing cards and gluing a small piece of card stock with the web addresses to each card. They came out really cool so I'll have to see if I can get a picture of one.



As is our custom we MUST come in costume to everything. I was the white rabbit leading everyone down the rabbit hole.  Grin



The tables were dressed with mismatched tea cups and saucers (these also served as favors since each guest got to take one home), tea pots, and white roses painted red. One of the tea pots even has the dormouse sticking out of it.  Wink



I found these awesome fake roses in pots at Goodwill for about $4 dollars each. I took them home painted they partially red with fabric paint and ta-da!



A lot of the drinks and food were tagged with eat me and drink me labels. Tea, wine and kool aid squeezeits were served for beverages.



The party mostly took place outdoors, but inside was decorated with garlands of cards, home made mushrooms and flamingos and anything else I could find that fit the theme.

Showers tend to bore me, honestly, but that's a wonderful shower.  An Alice theme seems really appropriate for a ladies' get together, and it's playful and fun.  Brilliant.
