We’re All Mad Here: A Tea Party
June 25, 2011 § 125 Comments
Hi everyone! Well, as usual I’m behind on everything, but I thought I’d log on to….
…did you hear a rustle in the grass?
A white rabbit! He seems to be in an awful hurry, too. Let’s see where he’s going…
Well, goodness gracious. This must be Wonderland. And what’s this? A stylish party in the sunshine? And plenty of teacups to go around? And you’re all invited? Excellent! (I knew it all along)
May I introduce the honorable tea pots? They’re an essential part of the proceedings at a tea party, you know.
Miss Spink and Miss Forcible, how do you do?
Perhaps you’d like to stop and paint the roses? I see that they aren’t quite finished…
Would you like some nibbles?
These may look like fancy tarts, but they’re actually PB&(s)J–peanut butter & strawberry jam sandwiches!
As you can see, in Wonderland we like to play with our food. Chess is much harder when people keep eating parts of the board!
Perhaps a cupcake? No? Ah, I know what you really want…
- You want a slice of cake! But Wonderland is no ordinary place, you know, and this is no ordinary cake…
It’s a chessboard cake! Only appropriate on this side of the looking glass, you know.
Thank you for coming to my tea party! There will be some behind-the-scenes details and tutorials coming soon! In the meantime you can find more tea parties to attend by checking out the blogroll at A Fanciful Twist.
Special thanks to my Papa and my sister Melody, who helped fight the odds to make these pictures happen! Papa made me a custom tray for my chessboard and put the legs back on my table, and Melody helped carry everything and stepped in for the role of Young Lady in White Dress. ❤!
