This Alice in Wonderland-inspired baby shower was all about the details: a card box shaped like the Mad Hatter's hat, red roses arranged in paint-dripped paint cans ("you can always paint the roses red"), pink flamingos (no croquet though!), a 'smell-the-tea' guessing game (sure beats the 'smell-the-diaper' game!), teacup gifts for guests, framed quotes from the book/movie, custom nametags, and 'Eat Me'/ 'Drink Me' tags, playing cards and teacups everywhere! Guests enjoyed a three-course meal plus theme-related desserts, in between playing baby shower games with tea-inspired prizes. Our guest of honour- adorned in her custom 'Queen of Hearts' headband- went home with a smile as big as the Cheshire cat's!
