An Alice in Wonderland baby shower theme will take a little planning. Finding decorations may seem like a scavenger hunt but it’s filled with so many interesting characters that are worth every minute you spent searching for items to use as decorations. And with each and every character comes possibilities for decorating the cake, centerpieces and other ideas!
It’s not only lots of fun to scour the flea markets and thrift stores for vintage items based on this classic storybook favorite but if you have the time it takes to make your own Alice in Wonderland baby shower invitations you can save some cash PLUS build a reputation for being THE creative hostess with the best ideas that everyone wants to copy.
ALICE IN WONDERLAND BABY SHOWER INVITATIONS
You can easily make your own baby shower invitations using free clipart and card stock. There are many Alice in Wonderland silhouettes that you can use to decorate paper in the colors that will be reflected in the decorations or if you prefer an authentic look, you might want consider using some of the image files in the book. OR you can use the free template above as an example and insert your own baby shower invitation wording. The beauty of this artwork is that it’s black and white and therefore easy to adapt to any color scheme.
As of late, I’ve seen more than a few parties and showers in this theme that took the modern "Technicolor" route using images from the movie as inspiration, but I prefer the old style color scheme of red, black and antique white.
All that's needed here is a slight twist on traditional tea party baby shower ideas. To get started, recruit every china tea service within your reach to use the foundation for a centerpiece on each guest table. Then teapots, cups and old fashioned floral arrangements accompanied with playing cards depicting the Queen of Hearts. If you can find an old deck of cards buy a new deck at the $1 store and age them by tea staining them. And don’t forget to include some cards to represent the queen’s guards.
