A Mad Tea Party

Oh!  Hello, there!  Welcome!  Welcome to my first Mad Tea Party!  I am soooo happy that you could join me.  I do hope that you will have a fantabulous time!

Shall we go in and find the party?  Well, look at that!  I think that is a rabbit on that table.  Let's go and see, hmm?


It is so bright in there!  I wonder what that is...

There must be something going on in that room.  Let's head on in.  Hmm, the door seems to be locked.  I guess we need a key.

What magical looking keys!  Let's try one of these and see if it will work...

I think it is turning!  Yes!  Yes, it is! 

It worked!  The door is opening!  Look at that!

I can feel the magic flowing out of that room. Can you feel it?
We've found the party!  Let's go in!

We aren't the first to arrive, it looks like there are some guests already.  One very important guest!
The Queen of Hearts is here.  Apparently her croquet mallet ran off and as she was chasing it down she stumbled upon the party.  She's never one to pass up treats, you know.  She looks lovely, if a bit...err...shorter than the last time I saw her. 
She must have found a special treat!  Ha Ha Ha!  Oh, I'm feeling funny!  Wait...is the room shrinking?  Oh no!  I must have partaken of some of the bigger potion by mistake!  Oh dear!

 Well, it is a nice view... 

 I say, that hat looks familiar!  The Mad Hatter must have already been here and he brought a furry friend!  I wonder why he left his hat behind.

Oh look at those lovely chocolates.  Chocolate is one of my favorites, don't you know.  Can I pass you one... or two?
We mustn't forget to put on our party hats.  And let's get a cup of tea?

 So many wonderful treats to try.  Oh, I'm feeling funny again! 
 Hmm... look at that, is that punch?  I think I might have some of that.  It is rather hot outside.

 Look at the grin on this cat!  He must be the Cheshire Cat's cousin.  I'd say hello, but he appears to be sleeping.  Oh dear... I think I'm shrinking!  Don't drink the punch!

 Does this rabbit look hungry to you?  I promise, Mr. Rabbit, I would not make a good meal!  I'll just take this little cake with me and run, before Mr. Rabbit gets a good look. Lovely seeing you!

I hope you have had a fun time here at my little version of The Mad Tea Party.  I'm so pleased you could visit.  I hope that you will come visit me again soon.  Please don't forget to visit the Hostess with the Most-est, Miss Vanessa over at A Fanciful Twist.
 Take a treat for later!  Just be careful of the punch!  :-)

love & blessings

Dearest Laura
Thank you so much for such a delightful party. I loved the punch. But I too drank a little too much and had to take extra large steps to get to my next destination.
Please stop by for a Mad spoonful of tea

DogsMom said...

I wish you had warned us about the punch a bit sooner! My head is spinning but I feel so very small!

Bobbypin Bandit said...

Oh my goodness! How delicious and how beautiful everything is here! Your seating options are just fantastic, that I would like to sit for a moment in each place. I must say, all that shrinking and enlarging works up my appetite!

This is such a lovely party... I hope the queen's temper doesn't cause any trouble! Hee hee!

Whew! I'm so glad the rabbit didn't eat us! Funny how the hatter left behind his hat. I really enjoyed meeting the cousin of the Chesire Cat. :)

LOVELY party Laura, thanks for inviting me! You had a wonderful party (for a first one especially...pat yourself on the back :) )
That black cat may have been playing opossom, it is a good thing we didn't disturb him. That punch was lovely even if it did shrink us!
Please come visit my party (my third time, I usually give something away, but sadly not this year)
Love n light,
