    Oh wonderful! And another "un-Birthday" tomorrow as well! So cute Susan, I have not seen the new movie, but I understand it's wonderful — Loved the books — let's see…..I think I'll pick the white rabbit- I always feel like I'm running late — in fact…I'd best hurry or I'll be late to choir practice — A most Happy Un-Birthday to you! and me too!

  2. sharonavinger says:

    Susan, that is the cutest tablescape I've seen in along while! Love the china and the napkins rings! Alice in Wonderland has always been a favorite with me!

  3. Allie and Pattie says:

    Susan, this one has Allie grinning ear to ear- "Mom, we HAVE to get those dishes!" LOL Great table and would make for great conversation. Thanks so much for hosting the fun!
    xoxo pattie and allie

  4. "Get the jam! Get the jam!" Your tea party would be perfect for my sisters and me – we can all quote the Disney Alice in Wonderland verbatim. (Sad admission…) What an amazing "present" cake dome!

  5. Damaris says:

    WWOOWW!! This was the best Un-Birthday EVER!! Thank YOU!! It is just DARLING!! And that cake is just to die for!! What fun things you have set out on your table!! XXOO

  6. Sally Hamilton says:

    Your tablescapes are so beautiful. I'm new to your blog but have enjoyed so much going back and viewing all the lovely tablescapes. I do have a question, though – where in the world do you store all theses lovely things? My hat's off to you! I'm trying desperately to add storage to my kitchen just because I somehow seem to always be buying dishes. My blog is sallysburrow.blogspot.com and my posting this weekend will be about my little kitchen addition. I'm so excited about it. Whodda thunk that we'd get so excited about kitchen storage and work space …

  7. Penny @ The Comforts of Home/Lavender Hill Studio says:

    Susan, this is just the BEST tablescape! And so timely too with the new Alice coming into theaters. I love your china!

  9. How cute! Those dishes are hot items. I went to our Marshall's and they only had a tray. I like that, "your invited to your unbirthday, it's mine too!" Very cute!!

  10. How fun to find the Alice in Wonderland dishes! Love this idea for a tablescape, and it sets off your gorgeous covered cakestand splendidly!

  16. The Shiny Pebble says:

    The candy napkin holder idea is too cute to pass up. Ingenuous!

    Hi Susan, what a whimsical funny table with that pretty china. I am not so familar with Alice in Wonderland but I feel the fun at it. And if I had to choose my plate, it had to be the one with the rabbit. because I am always little late. Time goes over so quickly. Was a big fun to discover your table with all the neat details.
    Greetings, Johanna

  44. What a fun table! I love the dishes!

    Donna

  45. Thanks a bunch Susan — you're a sweetheart!

    Your tablescape, as always, is perfect, and I love those dishes — they care so neat!

  46. I come by once in awhile to check out your tablescapes they are all beautiful. But I was wondering how you store so many things. Do you keep everything you use? Sell it or donate it?

  47. Cynthia@ITLLDO says:

    Your dish suppy has no end!!! How amazing to be able to set such a unique table. I love it! Thank you so much for hosting this wonderful blog party. If you have a chance, stop over and check out my very first blue hour photo. It just took me by surprise!

  48. Sharon Haynie says:

    Susan-thanks so much for all you do to host this wonderful site. I have a hard time waiting for Thursday! Your setting is gorgeous -as usual- and as usual I'm inspired!

  49. willoughbywhimsy says:

    This is so whimsical! Not only does it bring a smile, but it puts me in a celebrating mood! You inspire me to want to host parties, maybe too many parties.:)

  50. This is my most favorite ever! LOVE it. And if I could drive I would be in a car heading straight for the stores to scoop up whatever ones of these lovelies I could. Of course, I'm stuck in bed. grrrrrrr.
    A very merry un-birthday to YOU!

  51. What a cute idea – for an 'un-Birthday' Party. I never really got into Alice in Wonderland all that much. I don't even think I saw the movie as a young girl. However, this table makes me want to be 'all' about it. Great job. Also, thanks for the give-a-way opportunity. I enjoy your blog and all the tips and ideas that you give us. It always makes me want to throw a dinner party. thanks,

  52. Just the most fun table setting I have ever seen!
    It is time for an Unbirthday!
    Loving it!
    Kathy

    After being away for several days doing things that were sad and difficult, wouldn't you know I would pick today to try to get back to blogging. Just in time to see that china I knew I'd be jealous of. I'm so glad I didn't miss it…how cute is this? You certainly made me smile. The salt and pepper shakers…oh my gosh, love them. This was really fun…thank you.

    Susan, I loved the tablescape, and I also wanted to tell you that I just bought the appetizer fork and spoon from the same set as yours. What I was impressed with is how heavy they are and they look great with that set now to drive back 200 miles to pick up the other sets! LOVED it!!!

  81. Susan (Between Naps on the Porch) says:

    Stacy…be sure to check on eBay, too. You may want to call around to the Tuesday Mornings. That's what I did so I'd save myself a little driving time. Hope you find some more!
