Tea Party Madness And A Giveaway

Ho hum, it is such a boring day. Don't you long for some adventure? Perhaps we can find a rabbit hole to fall down.....

Oh yes indeed, someone says it is time for a tea party!

Of the mad variety of course!

But do we dare to eat and drink?

Oh what harm could come of it really? And there is so much delicious looking food, do let us partake my friends.

And feel free to choose a tea cup, there are plenty to go around.

The March Hare has already chosen his. Could you help him out with a sip?

And there is the Dormouse....

and Alice too!

My, my, the gang's all here...but Hatter has stepped away momentarily. You can try on his hat while he is gone, but don't let him see you or he might get...MAD...teehee.

This really is a lovely party.

Would you care for another cuppa?

This tea is delightful.

Or perhaps some condiment for your scone?

There are so many sweets!

I am not sure if it is a sugar rush or just general madness, but the March Hare sure is acting funny...

Is it just me or do we seem to be growing? I am sure that teapot and bird cage were not so small before.

Curiouser and curiouser.....

Ooph are you feeling woozy too? Maybe we better have a bit of a lie down.

......yawn.....and here we are back home again. Well even if it was all a dream I certainly had a wonderfully mad time, did you? It must have been a dream, and yet as I closed my eyes I swear I saw a vision and that nearby tree winking at me.....

For more tea party madness head on over to A Fanciful Twist!

I am happy to say that I will be giving away the place markers from the tea party! There are four white place markers which you can write on with dry erase pens and so use over and over. To enter just leave a comment on this post. You do not have to be a follower, but if you are mention it in your comment and you will get a second entry.

ps. there is a good chance that a couple other goodies from the tea room where I work will find their way into the package as well, so don't be shy!

  24. So sorry I am late
    For this important date,
    But you're twenty fifth down on the list.

    With too little time
    I'm leaving this rhyme
    For I'm adamant about wanting to persist.

    All this running about
    Has left me dry in the mouth.
    Might I have a cup of tea?

    Your cakes with rose
    And scones with curd
    Are all so tempting to me.

    Oh my, the time
    It goes so fast
    I must be on my way

    But fear not friend
    I shall return
    Please……Have a beautiful day.

  36. Oh I especially enjoyed the egg sandwiches with the crust cut off. How decadent. But I know you kept the crusts especially to feed the hungry birds. One landed on my lap you see; it wanted to see what was going on and then told me about the crusts that were left by the flowerbeds out in the glen. I did enjoy your party and thank you for inviting me! *smiles* Norma

  37. My dear you are so very generous to not only invite us to share in your adventure today but to offer a prize. They are lovely and quite practical for all of us tea party hostesses.
