A Mad Hatter Tea Party





Play the music and enjoy the party.



The time is always right for High Tea!!


When the table is set and and scrumptious morsels abound, a tea party is ready that all you guests will be MAD about!

Alice's tea party etiquette.


A tea party is a great way to lift your spirits if you are feeling small and insignificant!


What is a tea party without gorgeous goodies. I love this pretty pink and white tea pot filled with china inspired cake pops.

Nothing can beat biscuits and jam! 




I love to set a table with mismatched tea cups and saucers. As long as they are well coordinated it works wonderfully and makes the table a bit more interesting.

Well, she is off to paint the roses red !


And he is always forgetting his hat!!!


One lump or two my dear.


What a great setting for a tea party.

Oh the burden of hosting the perfect tea party!!


Tea tastes so much better served in beautiful cups and saucers.

This reminds me of a scene from a Jean-Honor'e Fragonard painting






Who doesn't enjoy a sip of tea?

Another lovely spot for tea!

And maybe a little innocent gossip...nothing malicious of course!!




Perennial favorite...the silver tea pot!

Wouldn't you  love to have been a guest for High Tea at this table?


I do wish all my new friends could join me for tea. For now I hope you enjoy the post and please visit again!

    1. Anita you are the best. Your remarks are very encouraging and mean a great deal to me because I can see how very talented and creative you are. I bet you and the rest of the Nowhere populace have a good time with your adventures. Looks like fun. Do you really have a pet hedgehog?? Thanks for visiting and have a great week!!

  4. HI THERE DEAREST! No, that hedgehog is the passion of JACKIE, who is one of the contributors to Nowhere.

    Here is how it goes:

    I draw and write for Tea Rat and Rattus
    Penny draws and writes for Bebe and her Adventures
    The Dutchess draws and writes for Miss Moussie and Mozes
    Christel occasionally writes for Hazel and my husband Ruben also writes for Tea Rat and Rattus!!!!!

    WE HAVE A BLAST but this school year both my husband and I did not participate much. But now that summer has begun, we have started up the silliness, which quite frankly, we enjoy so much.

    I JUST HAD TO COME BACK TO VISIT and I see your kind reply. See my Etsy shop creations to see what I am up to. I am excited about my paper art that will soon be available as well on cards and tags.

    BE WELL! Anita

    1. Hi Anita, Sounds like you people know how to have fun!! All that creativity has to come out and I am sure Nowhere is just one of many avenues!! I love your ESTY items, the shoes are exquisite! How did you ever get started? Just that creative genius spinning around in your head I'm sure. You are so talented and I just love creative people and all their interests and endeavors. Have a great day!!

  5. Oh, Lisa! What a beautiful post and you have hit on a weakness of mine (one of many!), and that is teapots and cups/saucers. My French tutor and I always have hot tea during my lessons no matter the temperature outside. She has the most beautiful pink floral pattern with mismatched cups and it just puts me in the mood to learn. Although it is too hot here at the moment to enjoy a tea party on the lawn or in the woods, I can dream of a cool fall to come with quilts and tea!

    All of the images are fabulous, but I am in LOVE with that turquoise cup/saucer!!

    Bises,
    Genie

    1. Thank you for visiting my tea party Genie. The turquoise cup and saucer is pretty isn't it. The temperature here today is 102 degrees so ICE tea is the drink de jour.

      Do you actually live in France or just spend much of you time there? I love that you are working with a tutor to perfect your French. I adore the language and would enjoy that too since there is no one I know to speak with and use the little French I remember.

      Best wishes for a wonderful weekend! Lisa

  8. Hi Lisa
    Thank you so much for visiting again.. I do enjoy my needle felting.. Well, just as long as I do not poke myself! The needles have barbs at the tip, so when you poke away it mends the wool together.. Very time consuming but very relaxing..
    Yes, Bebe lives at Angelsdoor, but she spends time in Nowhere with everyone... I am so happy you are visiting there. I see the Dutchess and Anita here... Wonderful!!! I see Anita has explained how Nowhere works above.
    Wishing you a beautiful weekend.
    I just love your blog posts... Beautiful!!!
    fondly,
    Penny
