The magic and enchantment at Vanessa's (of A Fanciful Twist) Mad Tea Party are well under way.
Be sure to click on the button to see all the rarefied delicacies and splendiferous outfits! ... even the Mad Hatter is there - and shares his hat! Don't miss the fun.

Now I have to go put the final touches on our tea party ... and to dig out my maddest hat!
Hope to catch up with you later in the day ...

Stepping off the edge said...

What a lovely spread! I'm afraid though i couldn't eat another bite- although I suppoose a nibble and a spot of tea would do no harm before hopping on.
Thanks so much!

Berlin Deluxxe said...

You know, I've always wanted to have an Alice in W.land themed party complete with Mad Hatter's galore! How fun!

Robin said...

I'm so sorry to be so late.....so many tea parties to attend. Along the way I fell down the rabbit hole and somehow got lost at the bend. But if I may, I would love a cup of tea. All that running around has left me so very thirsty.
Gee those cakes look tasty......is that steak over there? You don't suppose I might have one of those as well? Thank you.....

Well, it has been splendid but I must be going. I have many more tea parties to go to still.

May the day ahead be a beautiful one for you.

Paula said...

Is the Mad Hatter offering Lady Gray by any chance?

slommler said...

What a beautiful party you have had!! Everything looks so delicious! I don't know what to sample first!!
Hop by my party if you have a chance.

Bonjour Tristan! Thanks for visiting me! I want to get my thesis done so I can join you all again for all the fun things that I love. I have been naughty however; on occasion, I slip away from my computer to make altered art projects as a sort of diversion! Thanks to you and your inspiring art! Anita
