Hi everyone! I know you've been anxiously awaiting photos of the Mad Tea Party. I'm sure my sly remarks have piqued your curiosity a bit - oh come now, just a little?
What IS this you ask? Just the beginning of FUN :D This is the first site our eye's rested upon after sliding down the Rabbit Hole. YES - you heard me right. I said sliding... oh, you haven't been down the Rabbit Hole in awhile?! They've installed a spiral slide. What's that? When, you ask? Hmmmmm. Let me see... I believe it was some time between Awhile Back and Awhile Forward, but my memory doesn't seem to do well by me after a visit to Wonderland. Nonetheless, I have much to share with you, so allow me to get on with it.
Any clearer yet?
I should think you'd recognize a party when you see one!
The guests were quite interesting characters. I should hope to see them again with the exception of Mr. Humpty Dumpty. It's a long story, but he had a bit too much to drink, goofed around on the wall in the backyard, and fell. It was frightening for the children. I wish I knew a good remedy for yolk removal, but I digress... on with the pix.
This is Miss Holly. She brought the friends pictured above. I'm not one to gossip, but I believe she showed up to the party just a bit tipsy.
This is the lovely Miss Cialito Lindo. She started licking her chops as soon as she saw the cupcakes.
Miss Cialito was a bit picky and was worried about the bunny milk not being fat free, but after one sip all her worries were soon forgotten.
Prepare yourself for this! This is an actual fairy ring. Some of the guests invited the fairies to join us for some tea and sweets. They were SO thrilled (and maybe just a bit high on sugar) that they actually let me snap this photo. I bet you don't see many of these on a normal day, but then this was a MAD tea party.
Oh, I almost forgot to mention, after inviting the fairies... magically fairy nectar appeared on the table. It was delicious!
Miss Cialito, Miss Holly and I were about to pose for a photo, when Mr. Funny Bunny told us the most hilarious joke ever. I giggle every time I think about it.
I found Miss Cialito to be quite the talker. Let me tell you that girl can chat up a storm. As a matter of fact, we had to go inside a little later because of THAT storm :(
A Bubble Bee got into our sugar bubbles, but after eating just one he flew off.
When Miss Cialito got tired of chatting, she took to the lawn to challenge party-goers to a game of croquet. Everyone being well aware of her reputation (expert croquet player) turned her down.
So she decided to let her frustrations out on the party poopers (as she referred to them) and express herself in her own special way :O
The festivities ended shortly after the storm began, but I must say a positively splendid time was had by all.
We'd all like to send a special thanks to Miss Vanessa for a delicious party, as well as congratulate her on making the cover of ADQ (Autumn 2008).
Please don't forget to sign my guest book. I know it says comments :( But let's make believe it is a white silk covered book with lavender ribbons and flowers on the cover. And a sweet little white bunny is offering you a feather quill pen to make your entry.
