A Mad Tea Party


Pin It

The Mad Hatter and the March Hare were sitting at the table, fighting over the marshmallows. "Why don't you just eat them?" asked Alice. "This is what I would do, in any circumstances." The March Hare answered in a pedantic voice: "There is science and method in eating these marshmallows: we must choose the toppers carefully in order to always leave on the plate an even number from each design". Alice looked closely and she saw three types of Mad Hatter's hat cupcake toppers.























"Why is the cat smiling like that, from one ear to the other?" she asked. "Because she was drawn by the talented Charles Santoso, that's why and she is famous now all over the net. Celebrity will do that to you." Alice thought the cat must be crazy, because she drank her milk first and spilled the tea on the ground.







"What are those flowers in the teapot?" wondered the little girl, because she had never seen them before. They looked like a combination of a hedgehog and a purple cloud. "Oh, those are immortal flowers, they transform into a flower mummy and stay like this forever", replied the Mad Hatter. "They are perfect for us, since The Queen beheaded Time and there is no time to grow new flowers of any kind."









"Beware of the Mushroom, it bites!" they both cried, as Alice approached the red mushroom with her hand held in the air. "There is no Mushroom here", she replied. "All I see is a lamp in drag. I bet that she can swirl and dance like no other. Let's play a cotillion!" So they all quickly gathered around, ready for the dance, but the March Hare kept glancing at the minty mints from the jar.
