"I'm late....I'm late....for a very important date.....



THE MAD TEA PARTY OF THE YEAR....

It's the 9th ANNUAL MAD TEA PARTY....
hosted by
a fancifulTwist.com 

Her site is so much fun and I just had to join in this magical MAD TEA PARTY..
I think this is my 3rd year...


come along, girls...
there's a MADHATTER TEA PARTY about to happen...


I'm playing like this huge tree is really the entrance to


THE TEA PARTY


  A MAGICAL GARDEN holds

intrigue.....

fairies....

clocks...

rabbits...

tea....

and loads and loads of  SWEETS.......





"LOOK.....over there.....behind the big red HEART...

isn't that a......RABBIT...???




It IS....
 jumping up and down...clapping...getting another tea cup for THE RABBIT......


 Of  COURSE they do....
 

"Where....O....where is the 
QUEEN OF HEARTS....???





We're waiting for her....
WAITING.......WAITING....WAITING...... 

=
SHE'S  LATE....














...ahhhh....she's arrived...

The RABBIT is here...the MAD HATTER is here....

WAIT.....

WHAAAAT......??.....Where IS the MAD HATTER....??
Well....now HE'S late...


Is THAT him....??
the Mad Hatter...???

noooooo....that our grandson, Brooks...all dressed up to come to the party...


(anyone out there think the MadHatter looks a bit like J. Depp ???...heh heh heh)


A GOLDEN TRAY of magic nectar
has been prepared for all of us that must get SMALLER
to attend this wonderful TEA....

"drink me"
"drink me"
"drink me" 





"CARDS....and.....DRINKS....and KEYS..."


KEYS..???
KEYHOLE....????

Where o where are THEY...??? 

 

                              YES!
                                     the key !

  are we small enuf yet...???
Bottoms up....drink drink drink........




"Be sure to set xtra cups and tea...and plenty of sweets...

we are hoping lots and lots of blogger friends will come by for 
a magical visit...



"smaller...smaller....drink more so you can get down the rabbit hole..." 
♥ ♥



"WHO is THAT ??


A tiny little, beautiful FAIRY GIRL....???

Oh, how I love the little fairy girl,
DEIDRA...


I know for a fact there's FAIRIES in the area....
I've seen them with my own eyes....




Fairies love tea parties, too...
 ...all the little lights above....
FAIRIES....looking for a TEA PARTY.




LOOK.......

there's one now....
"Sugar Plum Fairy"







How adorable that he came to attend this
UN-BIRTHDAY TEA,

riding on the back of a beautiful
WHITE DEER.....  

"COME RIGHT IN...there's room for ALL" 
  AND take a look at his adorable,
RED VELVET FAIRY  SHOE...






"It's TIME......."

LET'S GET THIS PARTY GOING....


SO SO SO many treats for this MAGICAL TEA...





I'm so glad you came to our party...
SUCH A LOVELY PARTY...

SOMEDAY,  I would loooove going to a TEA like this...
BUT....
IT MIGHT BE ....


NOTE !!

I am here to be WITNESS TO THE FACT that it is
GOOD FOR THE SOUL
to be GROWNUP and act SILLY sometimes
and to 
fall into fantasy 
every now and then  !!!  
THANKS so much for letting me "act out" such fun fantasies ....I had a blast playing in photo editing
with all my photos....
I did all this over a 2 week period....i loved every minute of it.....
and PLEASE, if I got this classical story wrong....
like....OH, I don't know....maybe we need to get smaller to go thru the DOOR
instead of the RABBIT HOLE...
bear with me...it's been a long, LONG time since I was with
ALICE IN WONDERLAND.

  7. BJ, it's obvious you had a grand time creating this party, and I had a grand time scrolling down with each new goodie. Darling post full of fun, fun, fun. Glad you decided to play this year. I always enjoy the parties, but haven't created one myself in many years. Wish I had!

  10. You can never get any "facts" wrong in your own magical imaginings.
    Your hatter does bear a resemblance to a certain Jack attending my party...

  38. What a fun tea party! My girl Noelle has a Mad Hatter tea party hat. She won first place in a contest at a friends bridal shower a few years ago! LOL! Come back to Colorado, I know a terrific Tea Shop you would love to visit near Colorado Springs and a mountain hideaway tea parlor! I hosted a little tea party last summer. Hotter thna a pack of jalepeno chili peppers outside but my sweet girl Noelle has a covered patio and we had a blast. My three girls and my friend Bonnie B.who is mama to Markus, Hannah's ex (sniff sniff boo hoo) Sigh! I go hog wild with giving when I do a tea party. LOL! But boy do we have fun! I need to get moving and exchange tea cups with sweet Francie at scented Cottage. She is my tea crazed blogging buddy! HeeHee! I love anything to do with tea. Hugs to you and all these sweet photos you shared.
