For this year's Mad Tea Party, I thought I'd display my Alice in Wonderland tea pot. The tea pot is covered in lovely illustrations based on the book by Lewis Carroll.
The White Rabbit proudly stands on the tea pot's lid, holding his timepiece and umbrella. No need to fret about being late, Mr. Rabbit. We won't start without you!
Look, there's the Mad Hatter!
I'm so glad he could make it. After all, what kind of Mad Tea Party could one have without the Mad Hatter?
I so hope you brought your appetite as there are lots of goodies to eat!
Little tea sandwiches rest on a Shelley China plate.
Delicious strawberries plucked from the garden.
Ooey, gooey brownies aching to melt in one's mouth.
Yummy blueberry scones fresh from the oven.
The Chesire Cat couldn't make it today as he had other plans. So Mr. Froggy said he'd be delighted to sit in for him. He even tied his own bow tie with no help at all!
Lemon muffins are a delight with tea.
Sugary candy for your sweet tooth!
Peanuts covered with caramel and chocolate share the plate with some lemon muffins. Oh my! Someone has taken a mini-bite out of one of the muffins.
Yellow flowers, sunshine caught on stems, always make me happy.
I'm having a giveaway! I'm giving away 12x12 sheets of scrapbook paper, featuring dear Alice. There are five double-sided sheets, all different. To enter, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post. The winner will be drawn next Saturday afternoon.
This giveaway is now closed.
And, though the shadow of a sigh
May tremble through the story,
For "happy summer days" gone by,
And vanish'd summer glory--
It shall not touch with breath of bale,
The pleasance of our fairy-tale. --Lewis Carroll
