Our first brilliant bash!
Toronto-based Annie Tu designed a fun and gorgeous Alice in Wonderland inspired baby shower for her sister last month, right at home in the mom-to-be’s backyard.
Annie purchased silk flowers to pair with potted plants from Michelangelo Florist, and created a whimsical and girly backyard retreat.
Tea time offered a variety of Alice in Wonderland specialty teas, homemade tea sandwiches, custom cupcakes by Joanna Lo, and an eye-popping “cake” tower of diapers, washcloths and baby booties.
And no baby shower would be complete without games. Annie created prize baskets that carried on the tea party theme, compete with beautiful tea pots for the guests.
Annie’s Bash Tip: When sourcing unique event items, think outside of the box. Places like Chinatown and Dollarama have great finds at a fraction of the cost. Mix with a few staple “wow” pieces and no one will be the wiser.
Wonderful job, Annie!
