a very Merry UN Birthday to you! I am so sorry to be late to the party, but that's how things happen in the Arizona desert...we take our time...(do you believe that?)

of course our tea is Iced Tea...when it's over 100
° outside you need that ice!

the tables are set for the tea party!






The Mad Hatter was kind enough to set up shop, take whatever hat tickles your fancy.

The Mad Hatter himself!

We have lots and lots of teacups....


....and lots and lots of sweets!

The Red Queen is upset because she wanted white chocolate
covered strawberries, oh dear.

i had a little Cupcake wine with my tea and sweets, why not?

the outdoor bed is the perfect spot for reading a book or taking a nap


we ate and drank and danced all night...

It was such a great party, my dancing shoes slept on the lawn.

  11. I did enjoy your party! Thanks for putting it on for us all. Well I have to admit...I've been eating a lot of sweets lately and so I did lay down for a wee nap on your daybed. Hope you don't mind. It was deliciously comfortable. And I had two pieces of cake. I hope that is okay too! *smiles* Norma
