Mad Tea Party

OMG, I had no idea such parties existed! You just have to go visit Vanessa Valencia, A Fanciful Twist. Her blog is the most magical place I have ever visited!! This is her second year to host her Mad Tea Party, a party of parties!!!
While you are there take time to visit all the other enchanted parties being hosted by fellow bloggers.
There was a small party held in my garden which was hosted by.......a very distinguished fellow, some of you might know him, The Mad Hatter Sunflower Santa!

He is a fellow of few words but loves a party. He invited his favorite sweet heart, Jessica to join him, who has arrived on her scooter!

Jessica loves to drink tea and pours herself a cup.
