A Mad Tea Party!


On a lovely overcast day, five friends gathered to enjoy breakfast, cake, pastries, tea, lemonade and sweets :) 








There was sugar and fun galore, as well as sweet favors for the guests (handmade by my mom)!








Even Alice and the Mad Hatter dropped in to make an appearance!





























And even Alice has to eat her vegetables ;)




Thank you so much for dropping by our un-birthday celebration!


As a special treat for the occasion, I will be giving away my hand-painted Alice and Mad Hatter kokeshi dolls to one guest! Simply leave a comment on this post, and I will draw a winner at random next Saturday, August 4th.

Thank you so much to the lovely Vanessa Valencia for hosting this blog party, make sure to visit her blog here and to follow the sidebar links there to other parties :)

Have a beautiful day!

  24. I have to confess. I love strawberries, and especially strawberries on cake. I may have eaten more than my share. I apologize! I'm afraid I have no control over my stomach. I did enjoy the vegetables, too, but, since I ate the cake first, I only took a few spoons full. Thank you for the wonderful time!

  25. OH dearest me. This is my kind of Soiree. I do so love all the treats and sweets. Chocolate, and icing, and strawberry cake. And even more goodies the I can believe. It all taste so scrumptious, and the company is delightful. I must confess I even ate the veggie pie. I have had such a wonderful time and that hatter and sweet alice were the cutest of pair.
    Thank you for letting me join in your Delightful party today.

    Please stop by for a Mad spoonful of tea... a little late of course, but we have opened the door now
