Beware the March Hare!

Spring 1800

Especially if your late for Tea…

Many thanks to Sweet Vanessa of ‘A Fanciful Twist’,for cooking up this Mad Party!

mad party

Be sure to visit the other Mad Festivities happening right now at her Magical Wonderland. Click HERE to visit them all.

Now back to our Mad Tale in Wonder (What-were-they-Thinking)Land. The March Hare loves a good Tea Party but he’s very particular about promptness. So with the help of Mollymkun the Dormouse they planned a perfectly mad party.

Even brought in the Maypole, which the Mad Hatter hat-ed himself.

Spring 1523

With plenty of Lime-Aid Pishalver (shrinking potion), and Frosted Brownies Upelkuchen (growing cake) on hand for emergency use only.

Spring 1585

And Mollymkun even happened to snatch one of the Red Queen’s cakes (Cherry Chip/Red Velvet) for the festivity. Better hope she doesn’t find out or the Dormouse will lose her head.

And before you know it the crazy guests Gallymoggers arrived.

Spring 1542

Even Alice,

And the Queens Croquet Stick.

Some knew of the March Hare’s dislike for latecomers, others did not. Mallymkun could see the March Hare’s temper rising and she tried to calm him down.

Spring 1801

Maybe she should share some of her favorite beverage with him.

Spring 1796

But he wouldn’t be distracted and soon he came up with a madly, wicked idea. “Who’s to Say What is Proper?”

Spring 1813

‘You’re All Late for Tea!’

Poor Dormouse.

Spring 1857

And just like Our Mad, Mad, Mad Party Last Year, the Madness spread around the whole table. And within seconds the food was gone.

Some didn’t know what hit them.

Spring 1556

Others were prepared.

I mean if someone had to throw something at you at least it was food.

Thankfully no one lost their heads, maybe because the Red Queen wasn’t invited, but still, that’s saying something. No one really wants to lose their head.

Spring 1557

And after the food quit flying, the crazies entertained each other with a nice Futterwacken around the maypole.

Spring 1565

Many, many thanks to all who participated in our Mad Tea Food Fight Party. For it is a true friend who can still love you after you subject him to such lunacy.

Have I gone Mad? Why yes, but I’ll let you in on a little secret. All the best people are.

Spring 1833

And with that Lea Alice bid’s you farewell – until next time. Thanks for stopping by.

OMG...I just realized something! You must think I'm the dingiest person around!! I drew your name last year and COMPLETELY FORGOT!! We've moved 3 (or 4, I forget) times since then. I promise, I will get something together for you! I think all the stuff is still in a storage unit back in Florida.

Anyway, I really love your party this year! It looks like so much fun!

Thanks ever so much for stopping by earlier. I so enjoyed your visit. And thanks for inviting me to your Mad Tea Time. Quite Mad indeed. I hope you don't mind that I made a little piggy of myself and took such a large piece of your yummy cake. Just couldn't be helped. ...and besides, if I hadn't eaten so much, it might just have ended up on someone's head instead.

Brook said...

Arrow said...

We saw the video and it looked like some people really got into it! Our kids loved watching the lunacy!

Rhonda Roo said...

Its you! you are me! Youre the house we used to be, when i homeschooled and had kidlets (instead of grown Lost boys) and everyone gathered at the house, neighborhood kids and pets and peeps and put on plays or, or celebrate FAIRIES (happy belated day to you!)
AND a Maypole!!
I love that you even had the queen croquet mallet-awesome! :)
So i read on and have 1 more confession: your husband and i have the fear of throwing up thing in common...only mine comes because i have the reflex thing where i have to go get meds to make it stop once it starts (DONT tell him about that!!)
Um, too much information for our first chat???

Anyhoo loved the SPIRIT and ENERGY of this party!!

JoAnne said...

Wonderful post! I love how you truly embraced it and created a wonderful party for all. Wish I was there in person...

Sylvia Smiser said...
