Mad Hatter Garden Party

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.

That party sounds fabulous! I hope you have it so I can see your pics! I have seen pics of a party before where they had a long stretch of wheat grass in the middle of the table and sticks with butterflies was so colorful. They of course had tea cups everywhere of different colors. I love all of the pics you posted! Happy Holidays. Terri

Thanks for your message, and seriously, having, wanting and craving to have this party myself... it's on top of my New Years wish list !! Fingers crossed. Happy Holidays and thanks for stopping by.
