the mad hatters teaparty and a giveaway!

Welcome to the madhatters teaparty!

I've baked a cake specially for today.. I'm sure you'll find lots of cakes out there in blogland today.. besure to click on the invitation above and hop over to Vanessas site to check out the very extensive list of others who have prepared a little something for the occasion as well!

What would a madhatter be with out a cheshire cat?



And of course we needed some pretty "china" for our party!


And the mad hatter... needs a mad hatters hat!

remember me??


And, we had to have a pocket watch of somesort, so that silly rabbit wouldnt be late!


Theres tea and cake for everyone!







This party takes place in a garden doesnt it??


underneath a giant mushroom!





And little Alice did show up too....


poor alice, she had never been to such a strange land or tea party before!

In my cast of charactors, I had to convince my cheshire cat to play along.. He is actually a halloween friend, who prefers to spend his days sitting on a pumpkin.. but I told him to GRIN and BEAR it! (hahahahhahhahhaa.. I kill me sometimes!)


Well my party was short and sweet.. I dont think I could have fit another thing on this little madhatters teaparty pinkeep!
I hope you enjoyed .. and have fun visiting all the rest!!

BE SURE TO LEAVE A COMMENT, BECAUSE IN HONOR OF MY 2 YEAR BLOGVERSARY WHICH WAS ON THE 16TH, AND IN HONOR OF THE MAD HATTERS TEA, I'M DOING A LITTLE GIVEAWAY! I WILL DRAW A WINNER ON MONDAY !
mad hatter hugs to you all!

It is so curious that these Mad Tea Parties are still going strong! I've yet to clean mine up, so please feel free to follow me back down the rabbit hole to Haute Whimsy before life goes back to simply mundane!
