Mad Tea Party
hosted by Vanessa at

It seems like we have been walking for hours, where is the Hatter's House, we only have ten minutes left before we are late for Tea. As we walked to the top of Rabbitwood Lane, we came upon a large green victorian home, surrounded by a stone fence and climbing roses. At the front gate was a sign that read, please ring the bell to enter, we did.

As we followed the tiny tea cup signs around the house we came upon yet another pathway right under a stone archway filled with more climbing roses, flowers and bright green moss, with another sign that read: "This Way To The Made Tea Party"

At the end of this enchanting path we came upon The Mad Tea Party, and everyone was there: The Queen, The Rabbit, Cheshire Cat, Alice and of Course Mr. Hatter. They were waiting for us to arrive, and believe it or not, the Rabbit was on time, but of course he didn't think he was.

I enjoyed the cherry vanilla tea in my extra large pink tea cup, the sour cherry cheese sandwiches and the lavender vanilla cakes, my friend munched on the pistacio scones and the white chocolate crepes and enjoyed her Caramel Tea.

Our table was decorated so beautifully with miniature glass scenes and edible flower centerpieces, we each received special wands donated by the Queen of Hearts, which were images of herself, embellished with glitter and sparkly trimmings, wands fit well for a "Queen"

A menu card was decorated with a picture of The Mad Hatter himself, a special tribute and another take home novelty to make our event even more special.
Thank You for visiting me at The Mad Tea Party! Lisa!
P.S. I always take my camera and photograph tons of things!
