Mad Tea Party










Adjust your crown!  It's a tea party






with a Mad Hatter.






.
A Fanciful Twist






It's that time.







Roses are painted red, and







we are brewing orange blossom and youth berry tea.








Teacups are stacked, and pinkies are pointed.






The tables are set.















"Take some more tea."







"Why this watch is exactly two days slow!"







Sugared peaches and Cream...
Cherries...
Vanilla Bean Cupcakes...
"Eat me."







"Oh my ears and whiskers."







The white rabbit has arrived.








"Come and dine with the Red Queen, the White Queen, and me."

















"No, no the adventures first."























"The Garden of Live Flowers"








(Daughter's photo)
"In another moment  Alice was through the glass,
 and had jumped lightly down into the Looking-glass room."

It's a Madhatter Tea Party

  15. I love your dresser with the blackboard paint instead of a mirror. Very creative. A lovely table and I do recognize the Paul Cardew pieces as I sell those in my shop. You did a great job on this!

  16. Delightful, indeed! Your creative spirit shines through and though. Your daughter's photo with the mirror is genius! Thanks for sharing the fun and the joy of this Mad Party!

    Loving the rabbit plate. Will you share the source?

  17. It's all so pretty and the "Sugared Peaches & Cream" dessert looks divine. Mmmmmm...it made my mouth water. I've never seen such a thing and it's incredibly feminine and beautiful. If you have a recipe (or a link to one) that you can share, I'd love to have it.

    Thanks for letting me be a part of your special day. If you have time, drop by my tea party. I always love to share tea and nibblies with new friends. :)

  24. Such professional photos! Like walking through a shop filled with things I want and probably can't afford! I love the "cried so much" tea cups. And the aged feel of some of the items. A fine party and well worth the click over. Should time allow, consider yourself invited to my Study. My card!

  54. I am late to the party (just finishing the blogs that start with the letter B). Your Mad Tea was lovely. The crown is such a statement piece. Such a lovely tea table…sigh. (I feel relaxed now.)

    I didn't get around to making my Mad Tea a reality this year. I guess I'll have to be scheming for next year. I always love visiting your blog.
