It's Tea Time

Thanks to Vanessa for hosting this!  To see all the party posts, click on the badge on the right.  Now...

"Oh, I say, March Hare, good to see you here!  Have you seen Cheshire?  

"Yes, White Rabbit, he's up in the trees.  I've seen other magical folk, too."

"March, I hope the Fae Folk behave themselves.  You know how they can be sometimes."  "Oh, I don't know about that, WR.  Some of them are quite charming." 

"Well, we'd best get on.  Tea party is waiting..." 

"Hi, I'm Fay Bunn!  Follow me, the rabbit always gets lost...'cause he won't listen to me."

"Hello, I'm Alice.  What.  You didn't know I'm actually a Faery?  Well.  I'm from Storyland, I can be anything I want to be.  But as Alice, I'm 149 years old!  Trust me, I look way better as a Faery.  And, trust me on this, too: If something has a label that says 'Eat Me' or 'Drink Me' don't touch it!  The tea party is just round there...but don't tell Fay you could find it without her.  She has such fun at these parties."

"Right here, right this way!  I'm sure the human will be along shortly." 

Hey, I'm so glad you're here, welcome!  I've lots of treats for you... 

Lavender wine in Faery goblets...

Scrumptious lemon cupcakes, chocolate cupcakes with raspberry jam filling, a strawberry-mocha-chocolate cake, carrot cake (my favorite), two kinds of tea and delicious chocolates with a cream center. 

Wait a minute...this teapot had chocolates all around it.  Who...? 

Fay!!  "Well, you should have kept your eye on me, I mean them.  You know I can't, I just can't, can't, can't resist chocolates!" 

Well, I apologize.  No chocolates.  Who would like a cup of tea? 

"ME!  Fill 'er up, I wanna soak my paws.  All this directing has given me sore tootsies!"  (Don't worry, I washed the on with the party).

The roses are starting to sparkle...a sure sign that the evening faeries are around. 

And it's getting dark.  There goes little Fay, probably off to some other party.

Thank you so much for coming!  A very happy unbirthday to everyone!  Oh...I never did see the Mad Hatter, did you?  Or the White Rabbit...

"I say, where is everyone?  Oh my ears and whiskers, I'm late again!" 

"Poor White Rabbit, he's always late.  But, I'm sure Glenda the Good Witch will see that the little fellow gets his tea and cake!  I know, different story.  But hey, I'm La Luna...and perhaps other folk, too.  Look up tonight...I'm full...and I shine the same light on each and every one of you."

  6. Linda and Betty, Kerstin, Deb and Dawaioser, thank you! Dawaioser, lavender wine is ... ummm... well, I made it up. It's really a white wine with a bit of food coloring in it...didn't affect the taste at all :)

    Off to visit your parties!

  7. The pictures of your party are to die for. Only you shouldn't, because dying at parties is a real mood killer. Thank you ever so much for the invite. The tea setting was gorgeous, like something straight from the pages of Alice's adventure. Should time allow, feel free to share a cup of tea with me in my Study. Your invitation!

  8. Happy MTP day to you! ~Tricia.

  15. Narrator, Tricia, Dogs Mom, Lavender Dreamer and Ms Misantropia, thank you for your comments! Ms M, I'm not sure if there is such a thing as real lavender wine, I just added a wee bit of food coloring to white wine.

    Vanessa, thank you for your kind words about my garden. Coming from you that is high praise indeed since your garden is so magical! Mr. Murphy O'Mally is the Cheshire Cat - and if he knew what I did to his photo he'd shred me. lol.

  23. What a charming tea party! I recognize the White Rabbit from the Victorian Catalog (I have been debating whether to get all three: Alice, The Mad Hatter, and the White Rabbit). Yes! There is real Lavender wine, I have a recipe somewhere (it may be online too!). My oldest daughter's name is Lavender.
