Mad Hatter Tea Party

I'm joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday. Make sure you jump over there to check out the other inspiring tables.

In honor of the new Alice in Wonderland movie by Tim Burton, starring Johnny Depp, I chose to do a Mad Hatter Tea Table.

All quotes are from Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll.

The table was a large one, but the three were all crowded together at one corner or it.

"It's always tea-time," said the Hatter with a sigh: "it's always tea-time, and we've no time to the the things between whiles."
"Then you keep moving round, I suppose?" said Alice.

The teacups and all the china were bought at garage sales or second hand stores. The print table cloths are fabric from my stash.

The large "March Hare" is from Pier 1.

The teapots were all gifts over the years from my mother.

The bunny salt and pepper are also from Pier 1.

I hope you enjoyed the tea party. This week we are having a dessert buffet open house so I will post the adjusted tea party next week. Hope you'll come back to check that out.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi, Jeannine!

Just dropping by to visit your pretty tea party table! Your dishes are so pretty, and how nice that they were gifts from your mother! :-)

Love the bunnies, and I want one of those deliciuos looking desserts. YUM! Actually, I'd like to sample several. LOL!

I can't wait to see the movie. I heard Johnny Depp is awesome, but he's my favorite actor which means I would love to hear him read the phone book. ;-)

Happy Tablescape Thursday...


Sheila :-)
