A Great Tea Party

We had a lot of fun at our Mad Hatter Tea Party, and as promised, here's some pictures!
Putting on an event is a huge amount of work, all the behind the scenes work takes many helping hands. Here, my mom-in-law and my friend Sandy diligently frost our Wonderland cookies. Bless their hearts, they worked on them for HOURS!

And these weren't even the finished product..we added minute hands to the Rabbit's pocketwatch. We had Queen Ruby's crown cookies, the Chesire Cat's grin cookies, the Mad Hatter's Hat get the picture... 
We transformed the front doors into our excited customers wait for us to open. Lots of great party hats! 
Great hat, very CRAZY! 
My beautiful friend Julie and her adorable boys, helping fill the place with bubbles.
Cutie Sylvia above and below, our dear friend Karen from Old Quincy Schoolhouse (I get to see her maybe once a year, and she made a special trip to see us!) 
Love her hat, it had a crown in it too, kind of hard to tell in the picture.
I wish I could have gotten pictures of everbody, it's hard to get lots of pictures when you're busy!  
Karen didn't actually have balloons on her hat like it appears here, they were hanging in the background, that would have been a good idea for a party hat too! (Thanks for blowing up all those balloons Maryann ;-)
Sandy cracks me up..although it doesn't qualify as a hat, she gets an A for creativity, right??? She had a rough day in her kitchen apparently.
Lovely ladies having fun!  Above, Rebecca, Lori, Julie and Elizabeth. Below, Jennifer ;-).
 My beautiful mom and our sweet Florence. (yes Mom, I know you're going to hit me for putting this picture on) ;-)
 Nina and Michelle (My Shabby Passion)
 Here's a glimpse of our cookies, what was left of them!

  ..and you musn't forget the tea!

We played games all night, giving away prizes. 
 Denise, Arts and Scraps, was hosting a great make and take.
 Very cute and spring-y, I wish I'd had time to make one! 
 White Chocolate White Rabbits, compliments of Linda.
Mary Jo (Faded Rosie), Sue (Birdsong), Linda  
Our Mad Hatter's Hat 
 Doesn't Sue look FABULOUS?? 
 Ha, ha, this is how people feel when they see me coming with my camera ;-)..

Gotcha Annette (Andy's Attic)! Aren't they so cute??
Having fun together..Annette and Michelle!
Sue, Linda and Maryann (Prune Hill) 
Beautiful smile. Maryann is our special guest vendor this month. If you missed my intro post of her, go check out Prune Hill.
 Annette, Sue, Maryann, Jennifer, Mom, Mom-in law (Linda) 
We hung cards from the ceiling.
Denise's fun hat..she is so creative, isn't she??  
Becky and Heidi (Fritzie's Finds), such generous hearts.
Awww, love this picture of us. Mad Hatter, White Rabbit, Alice and Queen Ruby.
Thanks to everyone who came out and had fun with us. It's good to dress up and be silly! Think I should go blonde? Nahhh.
Sally and I also want to say a BIG thank you to all these wonderful people who helped make this event a success:
Mary Jo
We tip our hats (and wigs) to you all for a crazy fun party!

Mad Hatter Tea Party & Sale!

Here at Uncovered Ruby, we Love to have parties, and I must say that this might just be the funnest one yet! is funnest a word?


Begin at the beginning and go on till you come to the end: then stop.
 ~ the King

Several of us are dressing up as characters from Lewis Caroll's, Alice in Wonderland.

Read the directions and directly you will be directed in the right direction.
~the Doorknob

 (no, not a real one, refer to my picture on the sidebar.)

We're all mad here.
~the Chesire Cat

The Mad Hatter and the White Rabbit will be 'dealing' every customer their discount, using playing cards.  get it?

You're nothing but a pack of cards!
~ Alice


We'll be giving away prizes throughout the night, compliments of our friend Debi from Rustic Cottage.


What is the use of repeating all that stuff, if you don't explain it as you go on? It's by far the most confusing thing I ever heard!
~the Mock Turtle

Denise, owner of Arts and Scraps, is showing us how to make our own adorable spring-y picture frame complete with paper flowers, that night only. No reservations required, first come, first serve. Cost is $8.


It takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that.
~the Red Queen

Don't be late for this very important date...Grab your friends, and follow the rabbit tracks to us this Friday..sure to be a GRAND TIME!

No wonder you're late. Why, this watch is exactly two days slow.
~ the Mad Hatter
