My niece is getting married this summer. She wanted an Alice in Wonderland themed Bridal Shower and her mom (my SIL) ask me to help her with the party planning.
These are my crafty contributions for her Bridal Shower. I am sorry I cant share the final party set up pictures for private reasons. These are my pictures that I took after completing each craft. My SIL did a great job with the decorations. I am sharing the cake picture because my SIL agreed to share this picture publicly on the cake baker's Facebook page.

Singing Flowers Bouquet
I found a template for Alice in Wonderland singing flowers on line, perfect bouquet to welcome guests to the bridal shower.

Photo Props (They were a huge success at the party, yay!  Cheesy)
Alice in Wonderland Photo Props & Holder.

Flowers & Tea cups Headbands Photo Props. The pink headband with the teapot and teacup was for my SIL as the hostess of the bridal shower- Plastic colored headbands, tea set and flowers from the Dollar Store -

Bride to Be Top Hat I cant take credit for the hat. I bought a costume hat from eBay and embellished. The veil and bow tail was trimmed after the Bride to be tried on.

Bridal Teacup A white satin flower and pearl string decorated teacup for the Bride to Be. I took a great picture of The Bride to Be wearing her top hat and drinking from her bridal teacup, very pretty and cute.

Painting the Roses Red Bouquet (for pass the bouquet game aka- Off with Her Head) - I must confess that the original plan was to make a white roses bouquet  with brush on red paint, but I got lazy and just took the short cut approach, using red roses  and white ribbon from the Dollar Store.

Flower Ladies
Taking Alice in Wonderlands Singing Flowers as inspiration, I made these Flowers Ladies (2 of each flower) for decorations.

Warm Wishes Cards instead of a guest book.
Bridal Shower Wishes Cards with a vintage key graphic and a small dot of gold glitter - To be deposited in a big Teapot.

DIY Tiered Serving Tray From Colorful plates finding from my local Thrift Store

Food Picks Toppers 32 Eat Me Toppers & 9 hearts, 9 diamonds, 9 spades, 9 clubs (36 clubs card suit toppers)

Tea Favors
 42 Green Tea Favors Pockets Cardstock from Michaels and colored satin ribbons from Wal-Mart.

Gift Box
I wanted a cute little box for one of my gifts to the Bride to Be (a Just Married, Dont Disturb door hanging sign); this is what I come out with.

It was a very cute and fun bridal shower and we succeed in making the Bride to Be feel very happy.
