Mad Hatter's Tea Party? Or Just a Light Lunch with Friends?

Mad Hatter: Would you like a little more tea? 
Alice: Well, I haven't had any yet, so I can't very well take more.
March Hare: Ah, you mean you can't very well take less. 
Mad Hatter: Yes. You can always take more than nothing!

Hosting a tea party? You don't have to be bonkers (but sometimes it helps!). Simply having your closest friends  round for a long afternoon lunch can escalate into something resembling a Lewis Carroll classic. What starts off chatty and light soon becomes memorable & fun. Simply popping on some wipe clean fabric floral cloth, stacking the cake stand high with treat & sandwiches, pretty napkins to hand & making sure the tea pot stays full (with gin!) and away you go. Memories will be made, laughs will be had and diet's (usually having been discussed for a good first hour) will be well and truly out the window (until tomorrow that is!)
