Vanessa is hosting her Second Annual Mad Tea Party today. Last year I started the party off with roses for Miss Vanessa, our wonderful hostess, so I thought I would do the same this year.
I had so many ideas for this tea party, but finally decided to go with a modern day Mad Tea Party.
The hostess is the Queen of Hearts.
This image I used is Cate Blanchett taken for a Vogue photo shoot. The photographer is the amazing Irving Penn. The incredible dress was designed by Nicolas Ghesquiere.
Cupcakes are being served.
I must add an enormous thank you to my mom and sister who helped me with the preparations. My sister ended up decorating all of these cupcakes while I was working on my collages.
The two pictures below have a different top cupcake than the photos above. My sister didn't think they were worthy of the top spot, but I love them, so I thought I'd share them with you.
You can tell that's a crown, right?
And the Mad Hatter is joining us.
Alice is on her way, but she's not quite ready yet.
Have a little tea, and be sure to visit all of the other tea parties.
Links to all of the other participants can be found on Vanessa's blog.
Once again, thank you Vanessa for hosting such an incredible event.
