Welcome to the simply mad about Alice tea party!!!

Update! Update! It's late, it's late, but:

He's finally here, the mad hatter joined our party yay!

He showed us some tricks like the one with the pending cane:

And finally got some cake and tea, he came last minute so had to be satisfied with what was left.

Don't forget to click on the pictures to enlarge them and see all the details!

Everyone is waiting for today's mad tea party to start!

It's time, it's time! But ~ oh no ~ someone is late! Who is it then?
Well it's not the hare, he has his pocket watch and was on time!

The mad hatters accessories are there, see there is his top hat, the white gloves and his cane, but where is the hatter?

The birds already used his hat to build their nest upon it!

Alice is waiting, she's very hungry and wants to eat from the mushrooms again!

The hare is hungry too he want's some cherry tart!

Well if the hatter's not on time it's not our fault, let's not wait any longer and start the party now!

Alice totally agrees with the hare.

They will just have to start the party and will sure have as much fun without him!

Alice is going to eat a white mouse first. EEK!

It's not so easy to decide what to eat, there is yummy striped peppermint candy and a strawberry tarte as well as sweet toad stools and chocolate and green eggs and much more dainty stuff, it's mouth watering! Everything seems to say Eat me and Drink me!

So they are eating and drinking until it's time to finish the party and go back into the rabbit whole.

If you want to continue the simply  about Alice tea party just hop over to the French cupboards party post here Simply Mad about Alice who is having a fabulous mad tea party today .

Have a fantastic party everyone, and please let me know that you were here by leaving me a little comment!

Until next time at Boxwood Cottage!

xoxo~ Carola
