I had the honour of helping my mother and sisters host a shower for my beautiful sister Anne, who will be married in a few weeks!
We came up with a combination theme of Tea Party in and Alice in Wonderland, (mad hatter tea party anyone?) It worked perfectly because I kept using “haphazard” as one of the keywords so then the crooked decorations and mismatched tea sets became PART of the theme! Perfect. It’s like it was meant to be.
My sister took lovely pictures with her wonderful real fancy camera… but all I have is a few iphone pics, mostly from set up. But if this post has and chance of being posted today, or even this week, we will stick with the phone pictures.
Big hit. Apparently if you want people to eat the food you make, dipping it in chocolate is a surefire way to get that done! (The tags say “eat me” like the little cookies that caused Alice to shrink, or was it grow?)
Raspberry NY cheesecake that was delicious but cracked horribly, and the heart swirl pattern didn’t turn out as well as I would have liked, but the taste
Gorgeous spread that my sisters put together. I have some very talented sisters!
Roses painted red that another sister made.
A lose tea smelling game that I came up with. And I am loving these small “silver” trays from the dollar store. I think it will be fun for Clara to play with for her tea parties.
And the beautiful bride opening her gifts. One card had that cute little bride headdress in it which was perfect.
Well I don’t know if this blog post will get me the 10 billion pinterest hits that you promised Anne, but it was a very fun shower for a wonderful girl! Can’t wait for the wedding.
