Come along on the 7th annual Mad Tea Party. Sponsored by Afancifultwist. Please check her sidebar for more madness and party fun.
Thank you Miss Vanessa.
 Welcome and come along for a great adventure.
 There is a party ahead.
 The white rabbit will show us the way.
 The Hatter is somewhere near by.
Oh look, there's the white rabbit. I wonder if we are late?
 The caterpillar should be around here somewhere.

It all looks so very festive. How fantastic!

Anytime and anywhere is tea time.
All the sweet treats that your heart would ever desire.
I would be honored if the Mad Hatter would pour my tea.
All of our friends have gathered.

Pink flamingo's and all. Anyone for croquet?
It is twilight now.

It's getting late.

I hope that you had a crazy wonderful time.

Please don't forget to lock up on your way out. Thank you for coming along on this adventure.

Oh my goodness, this is crazy wonderful. All your props and accessories set in the sun and then in twilight- it's gorgeous, Linda.

Brava! Now I need to get the cupcake and candy out of my mind, they're making me wish for some right here, right now.

You must have had so much fun creating these, thanks so much for sharing, I enjoyed my visit.

Oh what a lovely tea party. I especially loved your Mad Hatter. And I also enjoyed your next post about Michigan flowers as I am throughly enjoying the Pierce County Washington flowers this year! Was that a lovely rose I spied? I do love roses - and miss my Roseville, California roses so it's always a treat to enjoy others beauties.

Thank you for a delightful time visiting. Have a great weekend.
