Mad Tea Party 2011 by The Weekend Artist

The blue lights are on...the blossoms are scattered around...

Pillows are placed here and there, and pearls glitter everywhere...

Oh the teapots and sweets! and homemade treats!

The doilies, velvet plush seats, lace curtains and tables are all set!

A deck of cards of all the guests!
The Mad host himself laid out the rest!
"Oh where, oh where are my guests?"

A bit lost?!... but on her way is Alice!

Painting roses along the way is the Queen of Hearts!

...and hopping on the way saying
 "I'm late, I'm late for the Mad Tea Party!" says the bunny.

All the guests arrived and oh what a sight!

Guests + Tea + Sweets = Oh what a treat!

So head on over to afancifultwist.typepad.com for more Mad Tea Party extravaganza and continue on over the hop to all our friend blogs on the list.
Kindly leave your comments for some possible treats!

Thanks and Have a great Weekend!

Robin said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

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 velvet seats
and homemade treats
are so very tempting to 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.
