Mad Tea Party of The Costume Variety.

I have been elated ever since I found out about the tea party yesterday! This afternoon, I set out everything I'd need for the party. Namely--

The Tea Set.

I also had to get ready. My favorite part is putting on a clean white dress. It's not complete until I'm twirled until I'm dizzy. That's half the fun of wearing a dress. The other half is feeling the air on a ground air conditioner. You know.

This dress is so fancy. I love the raw edge.

Lip gloss! The finishing touch.

Where are you? I am ready to get this party started!

Fine, I'll make with some flower arangements while I wait.

No really, I cannot wait! TOO EXCITED. Using all caps.

Finally! The Guest of Honor has arrived. Everyone, I'm sure you know Mary-Kate, but Mary-Kate, here's the world.

Oh, geez, Mary-Kate. You guys. I almost forgot to show you these mammoth sunflowers. Flowers are probably one of my favorite things in the world. What do you think of these big blooms in the middle of summer? We have some sunflower tea. Want some?

It's pretty tasty. It's like sunshine.

Like MAD sunshine, I'm telling you! Get your hands on this whackness.

Yep, thats good stuff.

Thanks for coming to the tea party! And congrats to A Fanciful Twist on her 200th post. Yay!

Oh, hi to Mary Kate! I didn't put it out for my party, but I have some catnip tea for you if you like. Oh, too young?

Fun party!

hello Aurore,

thanks for getting the teacups out ! I would like a cup of tea and a talk with you in your beautiful white dress.
Show me your sunflowers in your garden and introduce me to Mary Kate please ( I have 8 cats... 6 big ones and two small kittens, just one week old...)

Welcome to the party! I'm a little late to the party but since the festivities are stretching out all weekend long I don't feel too bad. Your dress is simple and elegant, the perfect attire for the Arizona heat at Vanessa's place and Miss Mary Kate is so sweet..don't let "King Dante" see her. I've sent him to the party as well:)Off to mingle with the other guests!
