Mad Hatter Tea Party

I went to a tea party this week! A Mad Hatter Tea Party! This tea party was held at a most unlikely place, but I guess a Mad Hatter Tea Party should be in an unlikely place! It was held at Curves, where I go to exercise! Curves had a members competition and the last Queens standing would be treated to a tea party.

The Mad Hatter above, is one of our trainers. She made that cute outfit! Have you ever seen a cuter Mad Hatter!

Here I am with the Mad Hatter (before she completed her outfit.)

There was also a hat contest for most unusual hat, but I didn't participate in it. I just wore a hat and outfit I wore to a tea party a while ago. Here are some of the decorated hats:

She won for most unusual! She had different tea bags hanging from the hat!

This hat was decorated with a deck of cards!

This hat won for most colorful!

Birds nest on the hat!

And the pretty face under the hat!

Cloche hats!

This hat had a tea pot shaped tea cozy on it! Cute!

Another bird on a hat, this bird is white:

I'm glad I wasn't one of the judges!!! I would never decide, too many great hats!!

The table decorations:

Different bright colored tablecloths and napkins, cute square plates, and large paper flower centerpieces.

The food:

The desserts:

That trifle in the large bowl in the center was my big downfall!! Yuuuummm!!

The Tea table:

The Mad Hatter doing the awards, etc:

Look at those cute shoes and stockings!

Everybody playing a trivia game:

(More of the winning hat is shown on the left above)

The decorations:

Our talented Mad Hatter (Krista) did all of the decorations on a shoestring budget!

Our trainers are both in their early twenties, and do a wonderful job! Stefanie avoided my camera some way! I'll get her later!!

Thirty-three members attended the tea party and a good time was had by all!! Now we have to exercise double time to work off all those wonderful calories!!

I didn't realize I had my hat on backwards until I saw these pictures! Oh, well, it is a "Mad Hatter's" Tea Party!

I love creating hats similar to this, I'm a Red Hatter and we have some very elaborate ones that we decorate. Such a big group--looks like you all had such a good time.
I would need extra excercise too.,


You look gorgeous in yellow sweet lady! What fun you girls had, I mean awesome fun!! I love hats, when I was a young wife and when I was single too, I wore them in NY so much, I still love them, I don't know why I don't wear them, you remind me I should! All that yummy food, wow! Thank you for dropping by and I can see why you would like my yellow-orange table, lol.. Have a wonderful week.

I totally want to go to or (even better) throw a hat themed tea party now. I think it looks so fun!

I thought I was going to be able to choose a favorite hat, but I liked too many of them. That gorgeous chick in the yellow top and black hat was the show stealer, even if she didn't compete.

That party looks like fun, but I'd eat too many of those goodies! Thanks for sharing.
