Mad Tea Party

Shhh!  Come closer.
We are getting ready for a fantastical party!
The final touches are put into place
and the gates are about to be thrown open!

The table is set with special treats and 
magic sprinkles.

Alice sent out so many invitations the
place will be buzzing soon! 

As always, the White Rabbit will oversee the festivities.

He has his eye on Alice and the Cheshire Cat.

He never will trust that cat!

Ever since Alice fell down that hole,
life has never been the same in Wonderland.

It not only changed Alice's life, it was the best thing
that ever happened to Wonderland!

Is it any wonder that they celebrate the occasion every
year?!  It is party time in Wonderland!
Come dance with the Mad Hatter.
He cuts quite a rug!

Enjoy yourself and have a cake and some tea.
It was so good of you to come.

We hope that you had a grand time and if you
leave a comment to tell us so
you will have a chance to win this
lovely Alice in Wonderland journal
handmade by Lindsey herself!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day and don't forget to stop by
Vanessa's Mad Tea Party and thank her for
the greatest party of the year!

Twyla and Lindsey

What a lovely scene when I visited you today! A tea party, no less!

Just last night I watched the Johnny Depp Alice in Wonderland (I don't think anyone says the Tim Burton version! lol) I was quite entertained!
Did you know the voice of the Cheshire Cat and the Caterpillar Absilom are both Alan Rickman (the actor who plays Snape in Harry Potter?)

I hope you have a fabulous day in Wonderland, girls. Thank you so much for the invitation. A little "wonder" in a persons day is always good.

Robin said...

So sorry I am late
For this important date.
I'm still making my way down 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 table, Miss Alice,
White Rabbit and cat,
they all were a pleasue to see.

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.

Sandy said...

What a beautiful table setting! Your attention to detail is wonderful!!
Thanks for having the party.

Sorry for such a late reply to your tea party, it's taking me a while to get round everybodies.

It was such a fun and lovely tea part though. I loved all your Wonderland bits and pieces. :-)

What a beautiful party! I love how many details you included--all of them perfect! I'm so glad I could join in (even though I am terribly late! One always seems to be late in Wonderland...I had terrible trouble with a certain tiny door).
