It's almost time for a very important date - The Mad Tea Party hosted by A Fanciful Twist!
I have been madly preparing as this year (my second year participating) will be a party with lots of guests.
To get in to the party one must have a ticket. (A digital purchase from MM Scrap Shoppe)
I'll be serving mint water along with the tea so I made some tags to tie to the carafes. I used my tag punch, hand-wrote the message (which explains a lot about how it looks, doesn't it?) and used a mini-stamp to decorate the edge.
As a fan of the Swanky Tables blog I saw these party banners recently and rummaged through my supplies.
I used white garden string, white glue and wide ribbon (and smaller ribbon to fill in) with edges cut to points.
Of course if you want one that looks REALLY good the lovely Paperklip Design has a fantastic assortment.
Next I tackled the mini top hat using Fetish Faerie's instructions. I made mine out of paper and I really recommend using fabric instead - that way you can stitch your seams together and I think it would just be way, way easier. Here in it's not-quite-complete state:
Oh drat! I didn't get a photo of my Merry Unbirthday banner. Well you can see it here at the party on the 26th - don't be late for this very important date!
