A Mad Hatters Tea Party!

By PaisleyJade - Wednesday, June 15, 2011

It's been a while since the party invitations were given out, but last night we finally got to have another fun family themed meal!!  Remember last time when we became "The Drake Fighters"?  So much fun!!

This time we had our very own Mad Hatters Tea Party!

The plan - come dressed up wearing something on your head (a hat, crown or tiara) and take part in cupcake decorating, family photos, our very own tea party and finishing up the night by watching Alice in Wonderland!

We didn't totally stick to the schedule... but we had heaps of fun, and once again we were reminded how important it is to take time out as a family to simply have fun and enjoy being together.

The highlights: Delicious cupcakes, the excitement that a bit of tea drinking causes amongst the kids and drinking sodas later while we watched the movie.

The low lights: Boys who don't colour coordinate their outfits (ahem... Symon), and the fact that the time of night meant we didn't get to take super clear pictures!

So much fun, and relatively cheap and easy to organise.  I love you guys!!
