A Mad Tea Party 2012

Hi everyone, welcome to my 2012 Mad Tea Party !
Pull up a cushion, pour some tea and enjoy a fairy cake, whilst I tell my tale :)
 At the bottom of the garden where the fairy folk dwell, if you look carefully you may find magic happening.
What is this, something through the trees, something which isn't usually here....
 Look closer..... what is this bundle of twigs and cloth....
 A fairy gypsy tent perhaps......?
 Oh but what's this beside it? fizzy pop maybe? Elderberry wine perhaps?
 Drink me?
Oh I'm not so sure....Alice drank from a bottle marked "drink me" and looked what happened to her !
Hmm it doesn't smell like poison...Ok lets see what happens....
 Oh goodness I've shrunk !!  Ah but now I can see into the fairy tent !!
 And it looks like company is expected....
A tea party set out just for me and you :)
 Pull up a cushion and make yourself comfortable.
 Ooooh lavender and honey fairy cakes, don't mind if I do.
 Yummm, thank you very much.
 Help yourself to a cup of tea, you simply must have tea :)
 Oh! Tea leaves! do you suppose we could tell our future in them?
 Now lets see.... hhmmmm.....yes.... the red queen approaches
 I don't think she will be happy to see we have stole her fairy picnic !
 Perhaps if we eat one of these biscuits we will grow tall again?
 Here we go......
 Back to normal...I think.
 Hey Poppy! Did you see where the fairy tent and the red queen went?
 "What you talking about now, what tent,silly girl",  thought Poppy.
 I hope you enjoyed my Mad tea party, be sure to visit the other participants along with Vanessa at

  14. You have a tea party picnic! That is a freakin' awesome idea. I only have Sponge Bob themed bedsheets (for my 3y/o son, not me ^_^) so I am completely jealous of your fairy tent.
    You did a wonderful job!

  37. There's nothing better than partying in a fairy tent! I have a feeling, though, that the cat may have snitched some of the cake. At least he saved me a bite.

  53. Dearest Mad Madam Mel,
    What a delightful tea party. I am so glad Poppy decided not to eat me in miniature form. The REd Queens tent was delightful and those honey cakes were devine.
    Thank you for inviting me in for a wonderfully Mad time, but let me go before the Red Queen finds me as well

    Your party is so creative and imaginative. I enjoyed every bit, from the effects of the Elderberry wine providing a peek into that magical fairy gypsy tent to those scrumptious lavender and honey fairy cakes. And Poppy, tee-hee, too cute.
