I’m in the Potting Shed
for the 9th Annual Mad Tea Party
at A Fanciful Twist!
Did you get your tea party invitation by post?
You must have, you’re here!
The Cheshire Cat: “We’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.”
“How do you know I’m mad?” said Alice.
“You must be,” said the Cat, “or you wouldn’t have come here.”
A butterfly teapot wreath is hanging in welcome for our party,
pouring ribbon, cards and keys in celebration. . .
We’re all aflutter in anticipation of Mad Tea Party time!
Pick your favorite teacup from the wheelbarrow. . .
After all, this Mad Tea Party is in the Potting Shed!
Oh good, you picked one of my favorite cups
and with a serving of dried rose buds and petals
for your tea, lucky you!
The Frog Footman has been waiting for your arrival,
enjoying the Limelight ;) and a little sunshine . . .
He’s serving up tarts instead of bird seed,
dressed in his floral bow tie for the occasion. . .
And excited to be standing in as a footman
instead of a bird feeder today.
Help yourself to these mini tart shells,
filled with lemon curd-cream cheese,
topped with berries and a sprig of mint!
Come inside, the party awaits
with cups, creamers, and cards
suspended by ribbon from branches. . .
Help yourself to some palmiers
served by the Cheshire Cat. . .
He’s grinning from ear to ear
with the thought of heart-shaped treats
at this Mad Tea Party!
The Queen of Hearts:
“Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
The clocks have all stopped at 6:00, forever tea-time. . .
“Yes, that’ s it,” said the Hatter with a sigh: “it’s always tea-time.”
Mad Hatter: “No wonder you’re late. Why, this watch is exactly two days slow.”
“Take some more tea,” the March Hare said to Alice, very earnestly.
“I’ve had nothing yet,” Alice replied, “so I can’t take more.”
Stir in some pink sparkling sugar crystals in your teacup. . .
Mad Tea Party time is but once a year, feast on macarons. . .
And petite frosted cakes sprinkled with confections. . .
Help yourself to some sweet and crispy Chocorooms. . .
With a crunchy, buttery stem and cap with chocolate coating!
The Mad Hatter: “Have I gone mad?”
Alice: “I’m afraid so. You’re entirely bonkers. But I’ll tell you a secret. All the best people are.”
