The Mad Hatter's Tea Party

the mad hatter's tea party
the mad hatter + alice
This weekend was truly magical – a trip down the rabbit hole to a tea party in Wonderland, hosted by the lovely birthday girl, SJ.

red queen + knave of hearts
Because after all, if the Red Queen summons you to tea, it’s best to attend if you value your head!

cheshire cat
While there, we saw the Cheshire Cat, from time to time…

white rabbit
and the White Rabbit reminded us of the time.

jen + michael
The White Queen was radiant and her knave was ready for battle.

kevin, maxwell and leanne
This pack of playing cards painted the roses,

laura + will
and we all gathered for tea and cocktails and a barbecue on a beautiful summer’s day!

We sat round a beautiful table of tea cups and flowers.

And ate magical rainbow layer cake.

Then took a little walk.

new shoes
And wandered along the beach.

all the girls
Something tells me you might see a few scrapbook pages about this, given all these ladies were in attendance! (That’s Rachel, SJ, Jen, Laura and Leanne as well!)

In other news, the past week has been a bit of a whirlwind, but I have so much lined up for you now! On Monday, get your first chance to sign up for the new class, and more every day this week. Good stuff to share!

…and for now, I shall dream of magical days with a boy who is just a little bit mad indeed.
