Sweet Treats: A Mad Tea Party, 2011

 Welcome to my Mad Tea Party! My party last year was so much fun, I had to host another. 


 My Valentines paper heart garland came out to visit. Along with a few old frames and shutters.

 Little lemon muffins topped with chocolate frosting, polka dot sprinkles and maraschino cherries...
my 3 year old pilfered all but two of them.


 


  Fancy that, a colorful bag of marshmallow stars, and a few clock gears
would serve as the cake's decoration.  

 Mr. Rabbit, who made his debut this year on the Easter mantel, is mighty jaunty in his WWII medal.
 
 These roses were the perfect pinky shade of coral, with such large, open blooms.
I simply couldn't resist. If no one else will buy you flowers, I dare say, buy your own.




I hope your blog visit was sweet and that you stay a while and visit often. 
If you held a tea party, please link your party in the comments. Let next year's preparations begin!

Oh I love it! The tea party was a feast for the eyes...the monitor kept on stopping me from drooling all over the cupcakes(mighty wise for the 3 yr old to leave at least 2 pcs might I say!). Love your blog and hope you dont mind I might drop by from time to time=). Hop on over to share a cup of tea? <3
