Virtual Baby Shower

Welcome to those of you joining me from Disney on Wheels and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the Final stop on our Special Edition Magical Blogorail.

As bloggers, we find ourselves connecting with friends all over the country - the world, even.  And, while we can't be there to share major lifetime events, it's fun to host virtual events - like this Alice in Wonderland themed baby shower for our very own, PT Disneyland!

As a mom of 2 boys, it's always fun to visualize outside the boy world of cars and even my beloved Mickey Mouse - and with this shower, we're contemplating the world of Alice in Wonderland.  And, while I wouldn't consider Alice a princess/girl movie, having the lead be a girl, by nature, makes it slightly more feminine.

Searching for Alice in Wonderland nursery ideas was fun - and easy! I took to my favorite idea spot: Pinterest (follow me!!) and found all sorts of wonderful Alice inspired ideas!

Now, I'm more of a simplistic designer, so I would choose a neutral, probably a light yellow, for the walls.  But, those neutrals are a great base for phenomenal decor, like this teapot chandelier found on Etsy:
It's adorable, isn't it?
Then, I would find some functional, yet creative furniture.  Like this bookshelf:



I couldn't find designer names on the first, but I believe the second is from a series of whimsical furnishings by Vincent Thomas Lemon.

And, then for some decorations, I would do a print or a series of these flowers - because I LOVE them!

To top the whole thing off, I would have to find this doorknob - which I've only seen on ebay and it cost well over $100, but still - how could I not have this?

  10. Considering you are the mama of boys, (we are in the same sorority), you created the perfect neutral room that would bring a smile to everyone's face; that doorknob is the crowning element!
