down the rabbit hole and to the mad tea party......

As I wake up to a buzzing noise, I remember that today is the day I throw a whimsical party in honor of A Fanciful Twist's Mad Tea Party..... let's get ready to enjoy the soiree!
I have been preparing my "home" in order for you visit... picking flowers, baking scrumptious treats, and displaying tea cups around my lovely "wonderland" of a home... I can't wait for you all to see!
But first I must get dressed and be fancy for this special occasion! Red shoes will be appropriate for today's festivities...
And of course, I need to adorn myself with feathers.... a perfect mask for a "carnivale" escape today..
My chandeliers are dripping with embellishments... butterflies, crystals, twinkle lights....
....even a few teacups hanging on the chandelier will set the mood for a perfect "mad tea party"!

I need to set out the crowns for my guests... please take one and wear it! You will feel a bit like a queen, which is always lovely! And of course the glitter is essential!
My favorite sparkly birdies would like to join in on the fun today... "Pinkie" is sitting in a teacup ready for the day!
"Petal" has been waiting for weeks to don her new bright blue flower pin.. doesn't she looks stunning?! :)
"Queen Bee" just can't go anywhere without some sort of proper crown atop her head...
And of course there is silly little "Sugar Beak," who has decided to sit in a few frilly cupcake liners today.. she found them lying around while I was baking for you all and hasn't budged since!

I am setting out my fanciest tea sets, so please our yourself a cup of tea and "drink" up!
Or perhaps you would like a yummy cupcake in your teacup instead?? :) And the beautiful flowers were picked fresh from my garden this morning... it all just looks so beautiful!
On your way out, don't hesitate- grab another rosey cupcake for the stroll home! They are so delicious, and they are a token of my gratitude for spending a dazzling party here with me.....
I was "led down the rabbit hole" today to immerse myself in a sparkling imaginary world, and I thank you very much for coming to enjoy a "party" here with me... And Mr. Rabbit thanks you too!
Enjoy your stroll back home..... and don't forget to visit Vanessa, who is the true host for this fancy and fabulous tea party! Thank you for throwing such a grand and lovely day for us all! I hope to come visit all of your parties today, so please say hello and I will be sure to visit you as soon as I can! xoxox!
