Birthday Preparations

Tomorrow it is my Birthday (Just quietly it's the big 40!)

I am hosting a Wonderland Tea Party on Sunday, for family and friends, as we have the Ballerina's dance concerts on Saturday. There shall be scones and jam tarts and fancy sandwiches to eat. There will be games, weather pending!

Just now I have baked 2 dozen cupcakes in pretty red ginham patty cases. I have been making garlands out of playing cards and tea pots cut from an old book I found at my kindergarten that was destined for the bin.
The shape has been inspired by a teapot necklace that the very talented Mel made for me. Mel also made the Alice brooch pictured above, which I think has been claimed by the Ballerina to wear with her tea party dress! The teen is funking up the White rabbit, with frilly socks, high heels and a fob watch necklace! As for Mr M, well????? My Mum is in charge of the table decorations and the cake, so I am excited to see those. There will be lots of lollies and cups of tea.
I am hoping for a fun and frivolous afternoon to remember! So bring on the sun, Melbourne!
