Mad Tea Party - 2013 !!!!

Hello fellow party goers !!!
and if you have come over from Vanessa's A fanciful twist welcome to my blog!!

I hope you all received your invites in good time to join in with all the fun :)

Along with the note that came with my invite, was instructions on how to get to the party.
Firstly through the shady grove.....

Then follow the winding path between the trees.
And look !! We have arrived !!!

The table is laid, the tea is brewing and there is plenty of goodies to spare.

Do have a seat and tuck in, there is a lot of un-birthdays to celebrate today!!

Grab yourself a teacup and saucer.....

and what type of tea would you like?

English breakfast, fennel, or perhaps chocolate peppermint!!

Poppy would like to play too!! 
She can be Dinah and drink catnip tea!!

Milk? Sugar?

A perfect cup of tea.

It looks as though the white rabbit and the door mouse are having a game of chess!!
I wonder who will win?

Would you care for a biscuit? Or perhaps a slice of cherry tart?

Don't mind if I do, thank you :)

Best eat up before the knave steals them all.

Yumm.... cherry bakewell tart.

Don't forget to save a cherry for last!!

Hmmm I wonder what future hides in the bottom of my cup?
The sands of time are running out?

Oh dear it is getting very late, I'm afraid it is time for us to go !!

I hope you all enjoyed visiting my mad tea party, 
thank you so much to Vanessa over at A fanciful Twist
for hosting the 6th!! annual mad tea party,
and I hope to see you all at the other parties taking place around the bloggy world.
Also you can find my previous mad tea parties Here and Here xxx
