A Mad Tea Party (unplaned)

Welcome to the 9th annual Mad Tea Party 
once more lovingly hosted by Vanessa of A Fanciful Twist. 

Please do find a table to sit and enjoy your visit.

.and of course no party is complete without a party cake showstopper,
Would you like a slice?

Thank you kindly for paying me a short visit, I do hope you can call again. I hold my hands up
and admit this wasn't the party post I'd planned but my card reader choose today of all days to go kaput and plans had to change. After having a Queen of hearts style tantrum and thinking of dropping out, the magic of Pinterest came to my rescue and I found these delicious pictures to share. Once I can release my own  photos from the camera which both Sassy Alice and Mr R. White (both beautifully made by Rhissanna) posed so lovely for I'll do another Un party post or maybe just scatter them through the blog. I can vouch that the cakes I brought and made did taste lovely. Currently Sassy Alice with her arms crossed is having a slight strop and keeps shooting barbed glances my way over her photos not being used and I do believe Mr White has also scurried off to sulk. I'm going off to have another cake (did I mention they tasted lovely hehe) and over this weekend look forward to visiting you all.


  1. I read about your card not working, what a shame! But this was a very clever idea and the pictures are lovely. Oh and those cakes.. too good to eat, they're works of art wow! I'll check back for the photos of your party, you could have a Very Merry Unbirthday!

  2. You did amazingly well for pulling this together on short notice.
    I also was having technology difficulties and used the kindness of sharing strangers to party along.
    I believe Miss Sassy Alice is throwing those daggers lovingly while she continues to think of mischief to entertain you.
    Please visit - I have music

  3. Fun party for putting together quickly! love your header picture! Look forward to your visit at my party! follow this link:

  4. Oh how frustrating! I love your substitute photos...the tables look beautiful and the cakes divine! Please leave a comment on my blog and let me know when your photos are up so I can come back and visit. :)

  5. A wonderful Un-Birthday Tea Party...such did a super job...come by mine and have some cake..:)

  6. Thank you for your party and wishing you better days ahead with your camera!

    In the meanwhile, My Little Victorienne and Purple Kitty are waiting for a visit from you at my blog! We hope you enjoy your time there!

    Wishing you a wonderful Mad Tea Party Weekend!


  7. My party had to change, too. I love the cakes you found! I'll keep an eye out for a later post.

  8. That Alice in Wonderland sculpture is just precious! Is the mushroom a lamp? It looks like a lamp. Or maybe I just want it to a lamp.

  9. I too had a snafu - the start of my show vintage Alice dolly was lost for 5 days, delivered to a neighbor's doorstep but I didn't know which one. Had to scramble to get images so I could still participate.
    Pop on by for a visit, here is my entry

  10. Thanks for the cake and a sip of tea too.

  11. Isn't that just the way it goes?? But thank you for your hospitality, and I enjoyed my visit just the same, Dear! Happy Mad Tea-ing!

  12. I really don't mind a small party as long as there's cake! I don't even care if there isn't any tea as long as there's cake! I don't even mind ... Oh sorry. I'm getting carried away. That's what happens when you're perfectly mad.

  13. Hi Jane!!
    Thanks for inviting me over to taste all of your scrumptious cakes today! I'm so sad that you lost your whole party due to technology being a nuisance, but you made the best of it anyway! Thanks for visiting my party as well!


  14. Yes, technology gets us all eventually, I suffer from a random disconnecting internet. I did really enjoy looking at your post, it was a great assemblage of photos I'd never have seen otherwise. I will stop back again to get a look at your Alice and Mr. White. Thanks for the fun!

  15. Awwwww....that sucks...losing all of your party photos into the void of technology. BUMMER! I'm feeling your frustration. Hahaha. What can you do? Everything is lovely though and I like that you forged on and kept in the spirit of things. :)

    I'm a day-late to the fun and just now getting around to each party, but if you haven't already, do drop by and say hi. :)
