I was thinking today how I rarely see or hear about engagement parties anymore. Is it because of the global financial crisis, and so people can't afford to hold an engagement party plus the wedding? or is it just that all my friends are already married and I am the only one who is still single and able to even consider having an engagement party?

Well, it got me thinking about what I would do if I was lucky enough to have an engagement party? I came up with the idea of a Mad Hatters Garden Party (a no brainer really, because my Frog Princes' family are fabulously colourful and completely mad). I'm beginning to dream now about the invitations with Tiffany-esque keys attached, the secret entrance to the garden party, the Queen's court croque, giant lawn checkers and all the whimsical 'eat me, drink me' goodies.
Don't be late ..."No time to say hello, good-bye, I'm late, I'm late, I'm late".
Cheshire Cat: If I were looking for a white rabbit, I'd ask the Mad Hatter.
Alice: The Mad Hatter? Oh no no no...
Cheshire Cat: Or, you could ask the March Hare, in that direction.
Alice: Oh, thank you. I think I'll see him...
Cheshire Cat: Of course, he's mad, too.
Alice: But I don't want to go among mad people.
Cheshire Cat: Oh, you can't help that. Most everyone's mad here (laughs maniacally; starts to disappear).
Cheshire Cat: You may have noticed that I'm not all there myself.
