After peeking thru the magic keyhole, the fae folk at the Buttonbox could not resist joining in the fun of a mad tea party! It’s been an all-day event!
We awoke to discover a outdoor Faerie Cafe at breakfast time! So the beastie and i went out to enjoy some blueberry pancakes and tea, and soak up the magical suroundings….
Bunting and paper lanters and a few faeries hanging around enjoying some lovely tea! Enchanting!
Lovely Jasmine Blossom tea….so good! But the weather was not looking so great…Miss Lizzie insisted that she wanted to join the tea party anyway…and heaven knows i am just a wee bit afraind to annoy her, so….
“I prefer dark skies to bright sunlight,” said Miss Lizzie, as she sipped her tea.
Alas, clouds started rolling in and we just had no choice but to retreat, so we took down the pretties and hid indoors while the rain fell. I took time to whip up a few party favors and a desert to enjoy when evening came.
I have three copies of this to give away at random to whoever may be interested after the party…i’ll throw names in a pot tomorrow for a drawing.
After awhile the rain stopped and the sun returned, and the party was underway again! Time for desert and cocktails!
Made from scratch Strawberry Shortcake, made from berries the beastie and i had picked on an adventure back in the spring…i am so glad i froze some before we ate them all up! Along with the shortcake, we have “Pink Elephants” to sip…..a bottle of wonderful pomegranate Italian soda paired with a VERY Cheap bottle of “Champagne”….it’s amazing how you can transform the vilest hooch into something really tasty if you just use some imagination and creativity!
Faeries can’t resist booze here in the Buttonbox, lo and behold, a Blue Calamity Faerie appeared and demanded a drink and some sweets!
She looks like she may have already had a few, doesn’t she? And so we nibbled out shortcake and sipped our drinks as evening approaches, and the goblins begin to stir…they’d heard that there was a Masquerade party tonight, and perhaps some dancing?
I think the Goblins are definitely starting to take over the party and i hear thunder rolling in again, and this Goblin Queen here looks rather feisty and ready to dance in the storm, so it’s time for me to head inside and marvel over the lovely events of the day….. Thank you so much, Vanessa, for inviting me to your soirée and inspiring me to get out and PLAY, something i have not done in entirely too long. I’ll be along to visit all the other lovely parties across Bloglandia here very soon. Thank you for stopping by!!!! Hoping you are all having a magical day!!!
