Mad Hatter's Tea Party!


Welcome to the Mad Hatter's Tea Party!

come on in and make yourself at home!

I have an invitation for you.



Are you ready to enter a Wonderland party?



Just follow me, it's down here.





Down the rabbit hole.





div>
Are you thirsty? Would you like some tea?




Alice is already here! Would you like to come and meet her?
Don't be shy.




She is sipping on her tea while waiting for the White Rabbit to join her.
He's always running late, you know.






Aren't Alice's stockings adorable? I've asked where she got them but she says her Mother made them for her.





Can I offer you a yummy cookie?




They may make you grow!




The Mad Hatter seems to be running late today too!
Doesn't he know he has an unbirthday party to celebrate?!












Would you like another drink?

I'm afraid this beverage might make you feel kind of small.











Poor White Rabbit.

He came by earlier but when he left he forgot his pocket watch!











I believe he was already late for a very important date. He kept mumbling something about a walrus and a carpenter.










A very unusual caterpillar came by and gave us a few mushrooms to enjoy for the party!

Would you like one?





What beautiful mushrooms they are! What, you're full? Already!

Well at least finish your tea before you go!




I hope you had fun at our party! Don't fret,

I'm sure you will happen upon the White Rabbit sometime today!

Please go visit A Fanciful Twist to see the other party participants and then you will be sure to see the Rabbit!

Have a great weekend, Lindsey and Twyla
