TBT! aka Throwback Tea Party!

July 12, 2014 at 7:44 am 25 comments

Today’s Mad Tea Party is sponsored by Vanessa of A Fanciful Twist! If you haven’t already visited her site, I highly suggest that you do! You’re in for a real treat. It’s a magical place…truly.

**My sincere apologies…I had a wonderful idea for this year’s mad tea party…but it didn’t work out as I had planned, and had to scrap it. Insert *sad face* Thus the TBT aka Throwback Tea Party post. So, no….it isn’t deja vu….you may have already attended this party….I believe I posted this back in 2012.**

Welcome….I’m so glad you could make it.

You didn’t you get your invitation? I’m so sorry…it must have gotten lost in the mail. No matter…you’re here, and that’s all that really matters.

The Mad Hatter is having a tea party …and today’s the day!

He’s brought out the best china! Funny, I had a set just like that when I was a little girl!

Oh look….a garden fairy is going to show us the way. Let’s follow her lead….this way, please

What a lovely day for a Mad Tea Party, don’t you think?

Through the garden gate. Oh my…it does look a wee bit overgrown now, doesn’t it?

Through the black eyed susans, coneflowers, past the california poppies and lupines

Oh, hello…..not far now you say? What a pretty peony and the zinnias are a delightful sight

 My oh my…it looks like everyone is already here! You could say that we’re fashionably late

Hello Alice….You’re looking very pretty in your yellow sundress.


Oh dear! How did you get in there, little Dormouse?

Would you like some tea?

I’d be happy to pour some for you.

But first, let’s try on some party hats, shall we?

There you go, March Hare…have a cuppa if you please

Pink  Tea and cakes…isn’t this a wonderful party?

Tell me Mad Hatter…what is it with that pinky finger, anyway?

And such is how my Mad Tea Party went today. I hope you had a good time….I thank you for stopping by. Alice would like me to thank you for attending, and asked that I convey that message to you on her behalf….because poor wee little Alice, she’s just too pooped to pop!

If you’re late (like the White Rabbit in Alice in Wonderland), and would like to attend more Mad Tea Parties…”hop” on over to Vanessa’s . On the right side of her homepage, you’ll see links from everyone having a party today!

Thank you for stopping by my Mad Tea Party…and until next time….Peace

    Oh I feel your pain about tea party plans going awry! My laptop took a sabbatical and then the internet provider pooped out and then I lost it all –eeeeps! But hey, we’re clearly both resourceful because we’re here! YAY! So, thanks for hosting and now you’re going to have to take a picture of Alice now, because I bet much like when she ate the cake, she’s grown bigger!!! 🙂

    Have a wondrously magical day!!

    I would have loved sitting at your table being served by Alice in the yellow dress. Tea would be a delight.

  • 20. Rhissanna  |  July 15, 2014 at 1:57 am

    Even Alice went back to Wonderland, so why not a return for Tea. Alice must be a little bigger, now, right? It looks as though everyone had a lovely time and this must make a wonderful memory for everyone who took part.

  • 21. swanofdreamers  |  July 15, 2014 at 9:39 pm

    I’m really late for the Tea party. I had a grand time with all the sweet treats. Alice is perfection in her yellow.
