Mad Tea Party 2014: White Rabbit and the Wicked Alice. And a GIVEAWAY!

(I'm worked my way through the
Mad Tea Parties.
If I didn't get to yours
please let me know in the comments.)

Giveaway Draw will be on
Saturday 19th July.


 Welcome to the Mad Tea Party 2014

Please come in, take up a seat.


There's plenty of room,
lots of tea
and if you're lucky, 
you'll find a clean cup.

Did you remember to bring your Alice mask?

Do you have a selection of cakes
ready to throw?


If every guest could please
put on their
Alice mask, 
then we can begin...


Today we are going to tell the tale of 

White Rabbit
and the Wicked Alice!

It's a very frightening tale...


Keep those masks on!


Good.

Once upon a time, the White Rabbit
was coming home from a busy day
at the Duchess's.


He was late, of course and in a hurry, 
so he didn't notice a 
huge human child following him.


She'd followed him right down
the rabbit hole.

Poor White Rabbit!
He took to his heels
and ran as fast as he could.


The White Rabbit 
ran through the Great Hall
past the glass table
and through the little door.

He thought he was quite safe, 
as the little door was too small 
for the big, scary human.

But the wicked Alice found 
a bottle of Drink Me!
And a bottle of Wonderland Drink Me
can do very strange things.




It made the wicked Alice very small.
and now she could get through the little door
and chase after poor White Rabbit.


Now do you see why you have to
hide behind the mask?
It's a very scary story!


White Rabbit had pretty pink rabbit eyes,
but he couldn't see very well with them.

He saw the wicked Alice shrunk small 
and though she was his housemaid,
Mary Ann!

He sent her to his home,
to  get the Duchess's gloves and fan.

Instead, she stole another bottle of Drink Me!
She drank it all! No please or thank you!

It made her grow.

And Grow

AND GROW


 The wicked Alice was now a HUGE monster,
breaking poor White Rabbit's house.

And when he bravely went in, 
to rescue the Duchess's fan and gloves
Alice made a grab for him!


Poor White Rabbit was terrified!

The monster had to be chased out of the house,
but she was too big for any of the doors.

And she'd drunk all the Drink Me 
and that just made her even bigger.



So the White Rabbit
and his friends
threw little cakes through the windows.
The greedy Alice ate them all up.

The cakes make the monster shrink in size!

When she tried to sneak out,
the brave rabbit and his friends
chased Alice 
far, far away!

THE END


Hooray for the 
Brave White Rabbit!



And that is the story of the 
Wicked Alice Monster
and that is why, on
Mad Tea Party Day
we wear Alice masks,
and throw cakes at each other.



Thank you, everyone
for joining Miss White Rabbit 
and myself
for this year's
Mad Tea Party.


and her Alice party mask
is now on Etsy.

I'm offering a giveaway 
of a little cloth Alice doll,
made specially for
the Mad Tea Party.

She's a work-in-progress and
I will be posting photos of her
throughout the day,
so come along and join in the fun.

  2. That ginormous Wicked Alice had it coming. If you ask me, she planned everything just so that she could have the best Mad Masquerade Tea Party ever!

    I hope she'll stop by Drusilla's Haunting Mad Tea Party. There might be a plate waiting for her. ;-D

    1. She needed to keep running or Bill the Lizard was going to hit her with a fan. If you see her passing Drusilla's, offer her a cup of tea?

  3. I love a good tea cake tossing party!

    As always, your Alices are the most magical and lovely.
    Very scary story! I do not recall seeing the Alice hand photo terrorizing the rabbit before. I covered my eyes!

    1. I think there's some kind of waiver on the back of the mask that states 'The masks are not cake-proof and the manufacturers have no liability for damage sustained from icing or crumbs...'

      But thank you for attending! Next year we may hand out cake rackets, and play tea tennis...

    1. Thank you so much, Mardi! I'm sure an Alice would have a lot of fun at your place! I'm trying to get the doll pattern scanned, so people can make their own.

  58. Gah! I just commented, and then had to log in to publish it, but now my comment seems to have disappeared, so I'll try again...

    I know I'm too late for the giveaway, but I caught Narrator's status update on Facebook and wanted a peek at your tea party. I don't know how I missed this post, I think Blogger is playing tricks on me!

    Alice is absolutely gorgeous and the little Alice mask is perfectly creepy!

    Your story ending made me chuckle :D

    Amber and I will don our masks and throw cakes at one another in your honour :)

    1. Blogger can be a real pain and Facebook doesn't help. As you're a victim of evil technology, I'm including your name, too! I'd love to come to the cake throwing party!

    1. Thank you so much, Patti and I'm glad you like my little Alice. She turned out very determined, I thought. A handful, too!

  61. LOVE your Alices! The first doll I ever made as an adult was a conjoined twin. I am just digging this entire post. I am about to fall back down your rabbit hole for a second look...
