Mad Hatter Madness!

Where do I start?? I have never planned an event in 16 days before this baby shower, but now I can say that it's possible!!!! I have to give credit where credit is due so THANK YOU so much to all my amazing vendors for pulling together last minute and helping create my insane ideas! This party was a couples baby shower so it was NOT suppose to be too girly. We tried to cover the main aspects of the movie, but still stay in budget! As you entered the party you walked thru 2 spiral tall topiary trees decked out in black, white, and red for the Queen of Hearts!! There were the Heart Soldiers, marshmallow pops dipped in clover, spades, aces, & heart sprinkles, and tissue paper balls. Then as soon as you walked in you saw where dinner was going to take place--which was like they were literally going to sit down in the movie with the whimsical grass centerpieces (from Buckeye Faith and Flowers) with mismatched tea cups, and playing cards all over then overhead lanterns were hung above the tables which added a touch of whimsy! Then when your eyes hit the dessert table madness struck again--Modern Cupcakes each adorned with mad hatter hats or crazy pinwheel fondant toppers from Two Sugar Babies, Cake Pops like I have NEVER seen before from Mind Over Batter all in the shapes of different characters from the movie, individual french bottles with signs on each one that read "drink me", the cutest cookies I have ever seen from Fun Favors all individually wrapped with little tags that read "There is no great genius without some touch of madness", and last but not least purple marshmallow pops hidden in grass in a tea cup to represent the disappearing Cheshire Cat.
