Mad Tea Party

Come, follow the sign, tea is awaiting!
Guests are beginning to arrive.
In the garden you will find the tea.
A visitor has taken up residence in my cup.
Oh Seth, you silly little mouse.
The rabbit says it is time for the Mad Tea Party.

There is good food to eat.
Doggies full of egg salad, celery caterpillar, butterflies with sprinkles,
and peanut butter, jelly, banana toad stools.
Don't forget the cookies.  Yummm!  I will have the ladybug, please!
Where is the tea please?
This hat is too big!
This hat is just right.
More tea please!
Every tea party must have a tutu and a little boy in a hat and ruffle shirt.
Welcome to our Mad Tea Party.
Won't you join us for a cup of tea.
In our cup was Blueberry Rooibos tea, oh yummmm!

Happy Weekend, dear friends!
Have yourself a very merry little Mad Tea Party too!
