fancy going to a mad tea party?

if you have some time on your hands and you like an adventure...why not head to lilly cottage for a whimsical party that will have you wanting more! i was invited to take part in Linda's gorgeous and mad party and as usual the hostess with the mostest left us with a parting gift.
each of her lucky guests left with a pansy cupcake! this little gal has sprouted another pretty flower, in my favourite colour of course.
this party inspired me to have a tea party of our own to celebrate a birthday for a very special friend...the table was set with some pretty little friends.
tiny deer and bird salt shakers, not a matching set but they play so well together i just had to bring them out.
a nest of pretty birds seemed right at place on our table.. these beautiful creations cannot be eaten but they certainly make a statement for those enjoying a tea party or two. the gorgeous kylie cupcakes made these and will make some for you too :) we soon filled the rest of the stand with lemony cupcakes, mmm delish jellyfish! shouldn't that be drink me? i hear you say..well this pretty tag made by the lovely linda is actually right. this teapot is filled to the brim with individually wrapped dove chocolates %*_*% squeal!!!
and what party would be complete without a present? i made the tag myself and the present too. what a fun time we hadand these 5 guests had a ball!
do yourself a favour and head down the rabbit hole into a wonderland of tea parties hosted by the amazing vanessa of a fanciful twist.

It was an absolute pleasure to have you attend my tea party, after all what is a party without good friends?

Im not a big fan of tea, so a teapot full of Dove Chocolates sounds like my kind of party!! :-)

Your partygoers are sweet, as are your wee creatures!

Have a lovely day!

Oh I loved your cupcakes! Thanks for having me to such a lovely party.

Oh cupcakes that cannot be eaten... I am not sure if that is a good thing or not!! What a delightful spread you gave us - something to savour (if not actually eat!)

Wendy said...

Thank you for letting me drop in to your lovely tea party. I loved the cupcakes and must say I was just about to take a bite when I noticed your note about not being real... But they were definitely delicious for the eyes. Please stop by for a cup of tea and some wonderful madness.
Have a wonderfully Mad and Curious day... Wendy from Wonderland
