Dream kissed skies illuminate the path through the woods...
Wind your way around the trees, and there you shall be...
What is that you see...?
Tea cups stacked up high, for you and me?
Why yes, but of course!!
It's the 5th annual Mad Tea Party!!!
Come on over, right this way...
There is a place setting for every one of you, yes, yes indeed!
Under the big tree, where dreams have a voice, said, two and three...
Choose a seat, and stay for a while, won't you please?
As the sun sets to the west, in summer towns, made up of pure imagination...
Magic floats about!
With a tune for you, and you, and you, and we!
A proper tea party set for us all...
Proper indeed, now pour, fill the cup, won't you please?
It's been a kookie and rough sort of summer, said the mouseling to the hatter.
Yes yes, I do agree, said he, right at 4 thirty.
We deserve a maaad tea parteeee!
Both nodded, and agreed.
And so it was...
An exquisitely mad and decadent party - with treats!!
Let your hair down, twirl about!
His tune again...
What could it be?
Oh my, oh me!
Here come more guests...
Have you chosen your seat?
Oh, goood gooood goooodie.
Now, dig in...
Don't be shy!
Lips on cloud soft frosting...
And let's not forget...
Fill me up buttercup...
Queen cake dear???
Custard and pastry and whipped cream, ohhhhh meeeee!
What else, let's seeeee?
Don't choose today to be shy, no, no way!
There are more treats where those came from...
Sip, munch, sway!
I am so glad you are here.
As glad as glad can be!!
Isn't it exciting?
To be at a summer soiree?
Especially since we have been waiting all year to see you again!
Cupcakes made of summer sunset swirls, pink and blue and lavender too.
And a little warmth to wash it down.
Oopsie, let's not forget flower cakes, filled with sheer merriment!
Dance, sing, play!!!
What is that you say?
Where is Alice on this very fine day?
Wait wait, what is that I hear?
Through fairytale skies and rabbit whispers so near.........?
There you are!
Through the rabbit hole, and into wonderland she fell.
Caught by a tree, to save the day!!
The Hatter will help her down.
Why helloooo Alice!
Through the trees and right on time...
Your Mad Hatter Prince, on bended kneeeeeee!
What a madman!!
We love him, don't we?
After-all, what would the party be without he???
As the sun sets, lights flicker, and parties continue with glee...
Never ending magic for you and me, and all of us who can see ~
Enchantments and daydreams, under canopying trees...
Trees that speak the very truth, you see...
That the Mad Tea Party, in all of its Wonderland, lives inside of everyone of us who truly believes!!
The Mad Hatter curls up for a tiny rest, before making visits to all!
