{Real Soiree} An Enchanted Wonderland Fairytale Baby Shower

Thursday, September 15, 2011



In August, SED had the wonderful pleasure of designing and planning this beautiful "Alice in Wonderland" inspired baby shower.  We showcased the invitations a few months back and today we are excited to share pictures of the event.  The hostess of the shower told us that the mommy-to-be 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 for her.  The dessert table is very simple and stunning.   It sits on top of a blue dresser!





{Welcome Station} Let's begin with the welcome table.  Here we made this over sized K with crepe paper rosettes.  We framed the beautiful invitation and also placed one of our thrift store finds, a baby carriage ($4), that a little spray paint spruced up on the table.  It was the perfect prop for our favors!  Let's take a closer look. 

The favors were these delicious cupcakes made by Carpe Cupcake, with fondant toppers from Cakes and Kids.  We made the cupcake wrappers and package them with a pink doily and Alice silhouette. 
{The Decor}  Even though this shower was tea party inspired, we wanted to create an environment for relaxed conversation and openness.  We stayed away from the formal traditional placesetting that you typically find at a tea party and created little vignettes throughout the room.  We stacked tea cups and plates that I found in a vintage store for .25 a piece!  What a steal.... ;) 
{The Desserts}  When coming up with the design for this shower, instantly the idea of a blue dresser covered with lace came to mind.  We love using props in our events and the concept of a blue dresser had been on the list (check), so we were thrilled when we were finally able to execute it.  The antique dresser was found at a local thrift store for $15 dollars! It was pretty banged up but for another $20 dollars, we gave it new life!  It is amazing what you can do when you with a little TLC.   So we refinished it and painted it an aqua blue color. I placed some beautiful Chantilly lace fabric over top to give a vintage feel.  The desserts topped the dresser included a topsy-turvy cake, strawberry whoppie pies served on mirrors, chocolate dipped pretzels all placed in front of a beautiful wall of paper pom poms.  We wanted to keep it simple and stunning.  It turned out amazing.  



One happy mommy to be!
