I loved the edible flowers!

This kitchen tea was held at McMoo's Party Farmyard in Ravenswood, Boksburg.

We decorated the eats & treats table with black & white chevron tablecloths, "Eat Me" food picks, odd cups & saucers, odd serving platters, my collection of bunnies & rabbits, a vintage clock, vintage black & white Alice in Wonderland cardboard centrepieces, a wooden box, giant playing cards, playing card confetti, coloured glass bottles, topiary balls, a vintage Alice in Wonderland book, tree trunk cupcake stands, the menu in a black frame, "We're All Made Here" in a red frame, old keys, moss stones and a teapot.

We served roast beef, rocket, whole grain mustard and sweet chilli seed loaf sandwiches, roasted Italian tomato, basil pesto & mozarella open sandwiches, Queen of Hearts' BLT sandwiches, individual crudites & dip glasses, smoked salmon & cream cheese vol au vents, magic mushroom, garlic, thyme & cream cheese crostini, smoked chicken, avocado, sweet chilli, lettuce & mayonnaise wraps, beef strips, avocado, tomato, lettuce & cream cheese wraps, smoked chicken, avocado & sweet chilli open sandwiches, lemon & herb chicken kebabs, bacon & brie phyllo parcels, mini pavlova with fresh berries & lemon curd, lemon meringue tartlets, chocolate brownies and Nutella & strawberry pancakes.

Literally, a mouthful! :)

Where do I begin?

The delicious eats & treats included vanilla cupcakes with red roses, red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, croissants with ham & cheese, roasted tomato, basil pesto & mozarella open sandwiches, individual crudites in glasses with assorted dips including hummus, guacamole & creme fraiche, salami & cream cheese cones, smoked chicken, avocado, lettuce, mayonnaise & sweet chilli wraps, date & coconut truffles, lemon meringue tartlets, chilled green pea soup shooters, banana & caramel pancakes, Nutella & strawberry pancakes, a fresh fruit platter, Camembert & cranberry phyllo parcels and my favourite, magic mushroom, thyme, garlic & goat's milk cream cheese crostini. :)

I was thrilled when we were asked to do this Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter Tea Party for a kichen tea.  It was such a lovely day, we set up the tables on the veranda at the Thornhill Country Estate clubhouse.

I am sure I have mentioned this before but Alice in Wonderland is one of my all time favourite themes.  There is just so much you can do with it and I have a soft spot for bunnies & rabbits, I cannot walk past a bunny without buying it!  My favourite one at the moment is the upside down rabbit cake stand which I recently bought in Knysna.

We decorated the food table with black & white chevron, pink, turquoise & lime green tablecloths, green grass placemats, a giant "Drink Me" bottle, a whole lot of different moss, wooden, ceramic & wire bunnies & rabbits, tree trunk cupcake stands, playing cards, red heart confetti, odd cups & saucers, heart food picks, "Eat Me" food picks, "Drink Me" paper straws in a teapot, red rosed in a giant cup & saucer, "We're All Mad Here" in a red frame on a black stand, colourful paper lanterns, vintage Alice in Wonderland books, a miniature wooden table and tea set, odd cake & cupcake stands, old keys, topiary balls, black & white striped paper napkins, moss stones and mini vintage clocks.

The guests were welcomed with "Drink Me" sour apple shooters in glass vials.

The delicious food included chilled green pea soup shooters with sour cream & bacon bits, heart shaped BLT (bacon, lettuce & tomato) sandwiches, date & coconut truffles, Nutella & strawberry pancakes, seed loaf sandwiches with whole grain mustard, rocket, roast beef & tomato chilli jam, roast chicken pancakes, wraps with crumbed chicken strips, avocado, lettuce, mayonnaise & sweet chilli sauce, lemon & herb chicken kebabs, blue cheese & fig phyllow parcels, wraps with beef strips, cream cheese, avocado, tomato & lettuce and "Eat Me" cookies in wooden boxes.
