I just don't get tired of this theme!

We decorated the eats & treats table with black & white chevron tablecloths, odd black & white cups & saucers, side plates, paper napkins, milk jugs, a teapot, red roses in a woven wooden cup & saucer, old keys, moss stones, topiary balls, woven wooden balls, “We're All Mad Here” in a red frame, bunnies & rabbits in various shapes & sizes, playing cards, vintage black & white Alice in Wonderland cardboard centrepieces, a vintage Alice in Wonderland book, tree trunk cupcake stands, a miniature clock, "Eat Me" food picks, green grass placemats, coloured glass bottles, a wooden treasure chest, red heart confetti and the menu in a black frame.

On the menu was roast beef, whole grain mustard, rocket & tomato chilli jam see loaf sandwiches, bacon & brie phyllo parcels, magic mushroom, thyme & goat's milk cheese crostini, smoked salmon, cream cheese & capers vol au vents, roast chicken pancakes, red velvet cupcakes, individual crudites & dip glasses with creme fraiche, guacamole, tzatziki & humus, smoked chicken, avocado, sweet chilli, lettuce & mayonnaise wraps, baked brie & rocket crostini with balsamic beads, the Queen of Hearts' BLT sandwiches, lemon & herb chicken kebabs and a fresh fruit platter.


The host's garden was so beautiful and the ideal venue for an Alice in Wonderland themed baby shower.

The guests were welcomed with Tang Apple Sours in glass vials with "Drink Me" labels as well as refreshing homemade lemonade in Consol jars wtih red & white striped "Drink Me" straws in a teapot.

We served fresh fruit kebabs, red velvet cupcakes on tree trunk cupcake stands, crudites with hummus, guacamole & cream cheese for dipping, lemon meringue tartlets, blue cheese & fig phyllo parcels, cucumber & cream cheese sandwiches, roasted Italian tomato, basil & mozarella open sandwiches, smoked salmon, cream cheese, caper & lemon open sandwiches and date & coconut truffles as well as a cheese platter.

We decorated the table with pink, turquoise & lime green tablecloths, crocheted doilies (which my late Ouma Sue crocheted), odd cups & saucers (each with its own story), tree trunk cupcake stands, magic mushrooms, a wooden rabbit, a moss bunny, a black & white striped hat box, pate & cheese knives, wooden boards, chalk board platters, giant cups & saucers, beautiful red roses, vintage Alice in Wonderland books, miniature clocks, a green grass table runner, "Eat Me" flag picks, a teapot box, a miniature tea set and colourful tissue paper pom poms.

As favours the guests received tea bag cookies with "Thank You" tags, quite cute! Next time I would just dip the cookies in chocolate! :)
