Mad Tea Party 2011

Welcome to my Party!! Feel free to grab a cup and a chair. 

The table is set and waiting. 

Pretty veggies...

All kinds of berries...

The tea service awaiting the first guests...

Zoe looks frightened...she doesn't trust mad people (how does she live with me? lol)

I am all dressed up and ready to party. 

With my cupcake socks. 

And my tiny top hat (received in an Alice swap) 

Cupcakes, Berries and are those cucumber sandwiches. 

Pouring the tea for my party guests. 

Berries, Candy and a full cup o tea. 


Having a chat with my very mad Mother. 

My Mothers amazing tea hat. 

4 pots of tea consumed
hundreds of laughs 
good friends
lots of food
What a fabulous party!! 

Thank you for stopping by, have a fabulous tea day. 
Clean cup, move down.

So sorry I am late
For this most 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?

Everything looks delicious
and Zoe is sweet
I hope you will visit
and spend some time with 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.
Oh Betsy! What a wonderful party! You made me laugh so much about Zoe not trusting mad people! lol but we all are mad here! :D Thank you so much for having me over!

Hi Betsy - Just remember - Michaels is your friend! Go there to check things out when you're looking to buy things for wedding decor before buying online. So much of their stuff can be "spiced up" Good luck and congratulations - I hope to see pictures from your wedding someday also!

Off to more tea~
