Time for a Tea Party













































































Oh hello and welcome! Before we sit down to tea, I have some flowers for the lovely Miss Vanessa of http://afancifultwist.typepad.com/ who so graciously decided to host such a splendiferous affair!






























Since deciding to participate in the Mad Tea Party, Pip and I have been perusing cookbooks, so we could serve you a most delicious feast...

















So, won't you take my hand and come with me on a Carousel adventure...I'm sure the tea party can't be too far away...just down this little path....














































Ooh! It must be nearby...










































What have we here? Ooh, Pip, how did you get through the looking glass? Wait for me!


















Aha! This looks like the place!

















Which cup would you like to choose? I've been collecting them for quite a while now...






















This one is my favourite!

















Little Pip, you do look adorable in your party clothes!









































































Miss Abby! I'm so glad you could make it! You look simply gorgeous!
And the Fairy Queen is here too! She is sure to sprinkle her magic about!























These fairies are ready to party!

















































The table is set...won't you sit down?














































Would you care for some Honey Joys?
























White Chocolate Cupcake perhaps?


















How about some chocolate brownies?

























Miss Abby, how's your tea? Would you like a ginger biscuit?


















Simply delightful...should do it more often, really....





















Ooh, these look delicious! And a little carousel horse on top! How sweet...



















Every Christmas morning, I would find coloured popcorn in my stocking...always a treat! Go on...have a taste!
























Perhaps a biscuit is more to your liking?

















I've just popped the sausage rolls in the oven...would you like a little zucchini muffin while you wait?

















It's been such a lovely afternoon...the sun is beginning to set. Please don't leave yet...I can light some candles, and you can stay a bit longer can't you? We've got so much to talk about!











































I'm so full! Everything looks twice as lovely by candlelight.
It's been such a pleasure to have you all here today. I do hope you enjoyed yourself...please come back to visit again...it's always a treat to meet new friends and share a cup of tea.


















































































































































Goodbye! I'm off to visit everyone else's tea party - what fun!

  38. Hey Beautiful Tina,

    OOOOOOHHHHHHH. It was so much fun at your party. I finally made it. I feel as if I have been up for days straight tea partying. I am so glad you were able to stop by. I hope you got to see the Futterwacken and fireworks. Your party was absolutely wonderfully mad. All the fairies looked enchanting and Pip is a sight to behold in all her tea party attire. I love your outfit as well. Soooo cute. I had such a blast, and oh my goodness the treats were Scrumdiliumptious. What a wonderfully mad time. I tried to download the Google follow button. It is called the member button when using on typepad. But I finally got it. I hope that makes it easier for people to follow. Those button things drive me bonkers, ( oh wait I was already that way, wasn't I)
    Have a wonderfully Mad and Curious Day..... Luvs, Wendy from Wonderland
