Alice in Wonderland Themed Baby Shower

Another Baby shower? For some reason Kellie and I have been giving quite a few baby showers this year. Both our kids are older so it's been a while since we have done one. It started with my friend Candice having her first baby. Candice is a lot younger then I am. Let me put it this way, when I was in middle school she had just been born. It's funny how as you get older age doesn't matter. Anyhoo...I gave Candice this penguin Baby Shower a few years ago. This time around she was having a girl so it was time for some girly stuff.
She named her daughter Alice so we decided on an Alice in Wonderland Theme!
I had a great time collecting fun Alice in Wonderland Themed Objects.
In the foyer of my house we had an advice book. Guests wrote their best advice on having a GIRL. If you have boys and girls, you know that girl advice is very helpful!
I made pinwheels out of black and white diamond scrapbook paper and printed a clock I found on-line.
Next we had the Hair Bow station. I had seen this on a website a while back and I thought it was a great idea. How fun for the mommy-to-be to leave the shower with a whole bunch of new hair bows made by her friends.

I used the homework caddy  that I had made a few months earlier and put all the items needed to make the bows. That way it was less messy and easy to see what was available. I also printed out some instructions in case some of the guests weren't sure how to make them.
The shower guests had a great time making the bows.
 Here are some of the finished hair bows:
The Dining Room was the place for all the food and goodies.
Because I was in a time crunch I purchased the Banner & food and drink tags from this and this ETSY store and just printed them at home. Esty is a great resource for that kind of thing. It was pretty inexpensive too. I usually make my own at home but in some circumstances it's easier to just buy them and print.  
The food for this party was really fun. I had lots of friends helping also which helped out SOOOO much. We had:
Cookie Dough Truffles
Mini Fruit Pizza's
 Veggies & Dip, Cucumber Sandwiches & Russian Creme (recipe here)
Pasta Salad - here is the recipe - it was amazing!
 For drinks we used my cute jars with these fun Drink Me tags.

The take home gift were these cute sour cream containers filled with candy
Congrats Candice and little Alice!
