This bridal shower is a DIY lovers dream. Inspired by the whimsical story of Alice in Wonderland, bride-to-be Anne created an ethereal DIY tea party soirée to celebrate her upcoming nuptials. Tea pots containing bright tulips and baby’s breath flowers were placed on vintage books and served as centerpieces. Guests drank tea, ate omelettes, sipped mimosas and munched on delicious desserts including fresh fruit, yummy cupcakes, chocolate covered strawberries and colorful macaroons. To complete the bridal wonderland experience, guests enjoyed a photo booth and a flower crown bar where they used flowers to create their own floral crowns. It was like a page out of a fairy tale.

I wanted Springtime in February and to have a tea party. Being a lifelong Disney fan and lover of tea parties, I asked my mom to theme my bridal shower as Alice in Wonderland! We had subtle nods to the movie and phrases all around the venue.We DIYed everything, made signs, games, butterflies, and the photo backdrop of large flowers. Our flower crown bar of fresh and faux flowers was a highlight for all our guests. We played French cafe music and jazz and French versions of my favorite Disney songs. The venue, The Madison Hotel, and a sunny February day made the conservatory feel like a spring day in February! The chandeliers, teapots filled with bright flowers, and our diy gold book stacks made you feel like you fell down the rabbit hole into a beautiful fairy tale.Bride to be: Anne Marie Amisola
