My daughter, granddaughter and I are joining in again this year with Vanessa at A Fanciful Twist for her Mad Tea Party. Thank you, Vanessa, for hosting such a fun event that allows three generations to all be little girls!
Here is a link to the post from last year. My daughter wrote the story again this year. I hope you will enjoy entering into our fantasy world!
Once upon a time, there was a little girl. She was a very special little girl with a head full of dreams. One night, after she had fallen fast asleep, and the house lay quiet, she began to dream of a story her mother had told her.
It was full of tea parties and Hatters, Hares and tasty cakes.
Now, when a child dreams, they sparkle and glow. And this sparkle and glow sometimes attracts fairies.
One particular fairy saw the glow of innocence and fabulous dreams, and slipped in through the window.
With a wave of her wand, she used her magic to bring an enchanting party to life.
Soon the clatter of teacups on saucers and the murmur of voices woke the little girl.
She sat up in her bed and couldn’t believe her eyes! Her dolls were having a tea party right in her room! It was so much like her dream.
She sat at the table with the dolls and laughed and smiled as they ate delicious cakes and drank magical tea that tasted of peaches and rose hips.
“You should come to the palace and play croquet”, the Red Queen invited, but the little girl knew better.
She also knew what happened to people that upset the Red Queen! So she said, “maybe” and stuffed her mouth full of tarts and cakes to avoid having to answer further.
The fairy sat atop the bookcase, watching the whole show and giggling cheerily. Until finally, the small party ran out of tea and cakes. The fairy waved her magic wand and the dolls went back to being stuffed, and that’s when the little girl noticed the fairy.
She smiled and waved, and the fairy floated down from her perch to land on the table beside the teacups.
“Thank you for the party”, the little girl said to the fairy. The fairy just smiled, curtsied and fluttered her little wings as she took off and drifted out of the window.
The little girl yawned and crawled back into bed. The next day she woke up to find her tea table a mess. Filled with crumbs and fairy dust.
She smiled at the memory and went in search of her mother so she could clean up the mess.
Thank you for joining us again this year for our little fairy tale. We hope it brought a smile to your face!
In addition to being honored to sponsor a giveaway for Vanessa’s Mad Tea Party attendees, I also have a Summer Giveaway running on my blog here, that runs through August 4th.
