At times, my two worlds collide. The fantasy world that exists in my mind and the reality that surrounds me. So when I decided to throw an Alice in Wonderland Party my imagination took over. I close my eyes and my head fills with swirls of vivid colors – I take a deep breath and I can smell the spring air and candy confections. I open my eyes and I am there.
Down the Rabbit Hole… to a place of pure imagination.
What’s this? A key. What secret doors will it unlock? Will they lead down paths that twist and turn? What adventures lie ahead? Who will I meet on the journey?
It leads to a world filled with silly little things and delightful surprises.
Oh, what a land filled with enchantments. You never know what you will see next. It’s as if they were waiting for me.
This adventure has heft me thirsty. I take a drink of tea and suddenly I begin feeling quite dizzy – things are beginning to spin.
Riddles and Ravens…
Flamingos in party hats.
The Queen of Hearts surrounded by giant marshmallows. Or are they? I feel so strange.
I’m shrinking – getting smaller and smaller.
This can’t be.
I am as small as a mouse.
What a frightening place this can be when you are only a few inches tall.
I hear someone coming. Yes, voices from far away.
I must climb down, the voices are getting louder. They must be coming this way.
Giggling and laughing – I need a place to hide.
I see them now – aren’t they lovely?
Time for a party.
Am I dreaming – Cheshire Cat?
Alice and the March Hare. My old friends.
The table has been set – I’ve been waiting for you.
Let the party begin.
laughter fills the air – how silly!
What strange beings inhabit this wonderland.
She won’t find me in here.
Or in here.
There’s nowhere to hide. I think they may be on to me. Peek closer, can you spot me?
Those cookies look delicious. Perhaps they won’t notice me.
Vanilla Macaroons? My favorite.
A crown fit for a princess in Wonderland.
She HAS spotted me . That hat must posses some special kind of magic.
They can all see me now…
and they have invited me to join in their fun.
Time flies – when your mad!
Back through the door already.
Wait for me……
I don’t want to go back. I like it here among the “Mad People”
The treats are sweet.
And the inhabitants so friendly.
Wait, I want to come with you. I trail behind. Down the meandering path that leads back to world from where we came.
My eyes open and I am back from my dream. The colors not quite so vivid, the air not as sweet, but the handsome Mad Hatter is waiting for me.
I hope you enjoyed your trip to Wonderland. I know I did. Thanks to my daughter Sarah and all her lovely girlfriends for allowing the Mad Hatter and I to snap pictures of them while on their adventure.
