A Mad Birthday Tea Party

We can't have a party without music.
So follow the white rabbits
to my favorite
tea time

The painting in the middle is on Scarling's newest record,
which I love and purchased here

Merry Christmas in July to all of you
and Happy Birthday to meeeee!

I found the perfect cake, made by The Cake Monger:

The inside is red velvet ♥

Why is it perfect?
Cause it's The Doll Days of Summer here in Horrorland
and Courtney Love's birthday was just on Wednesday.

It's based on my favorite song by Hole, 
Doll Parts,
which I'm going to end this post with.

Visit the other partiers and our hostess here


  1. A Mad Tea Party without music would be like a slaughter without guts--totally dull and unrealistic. Thanks for adding some danceable guts to the party, Holly Luv!

    Stop by Drusilla's, and we shall dance A Haunting Mad Tea Party!

    1. Actually laughing out loud! " like a slaughter without guts! ". Perfect!
      Excellent music Holly! and I would love are ending any of your " slaughters! ".

  2. I could stay here all day if I did not have other parties to attend.
    So I bookmarked this party entry to return later.

    Thank you for all the wonderful Alice references.

  3. Please visit me

  4. Fantastic collection of tunes! Don't have time to listen to all of them right now so will be popping in and out throughout the party :D XXX

  5. This was so fun! Loved the videos...what a neat idea for a tea party. And Happy Birthday To Me! Gods I love that movie! Horrifyingly fabulous!

  6. The soundtrack to your party was second only to the cake! And that first image is gonna follow me 'round today - very clever. :)

    Have a magical day filled with music and fun!

  7. What a wonderful collection of Alice themed songs and videos. Thank you!

  8. I don't have time at the moment to listen, but will attend and listen to some of them when I'm not so rushed.

  9. What a musical feast you provided for both our ears and eyes to enjoy. A wonderful way to enjoy a tea party.

  10. I LOVE Stevie Nicks!! You're welcome to come by and visit me or a spot of tea, too. @

  11. Oh how original...wonderful and very unique....thank you. Please visit me:

  13. A very happy Birthday to you dear Lady Holly.....

  14. Happy Unbirthdaqy Horrorland your tea Party(s)
    Cobblestone Prims

  15. Great songs and that first video gives me an incredible rush of inspiration for an upcoming Dark Alice (Malice in Wonderland) party. Plus any video that features PERISH - who is famous for his costumes at the Labyrinth of Jareth that's a *WIN-WIN* in my book. Yowza. >;)

    If you have time, drop by my tea party. I always love to share tea, nibblies and great ideas with new friends. :)

  16. We posted a Birthday "shout-out" at the "Crypt" for you dear Lady Holly.....

  17. Interesting twist on a tea party. thanks for the invite.

  18. I'm here for the duration....going to visit the other parties with your shared music playing in the backgrounds! The magic of opening new tabs :)

  19. I'm going to have to work my way through the vids in stages, but I ADORE 'Welcome to the Tea Party' by Kerli! I had never heard it before. I loved both the song and the video! PERFECT for this blog hop! I must join up next year! I already love 'White Rabbit' by Jefferson Airplane, so that was an extra treat! :D

    Happy Birthday, my lovely! ❤

  20. Hi Holly,and happy birthday! Sorry to be late like the Mad Hatter,but this is one Mad Tea Party I wouldn't have missed for the world! Thanks so much for inviting me. The songs are all wonderful. A grand party indeed,spectacular and divine,just like you!!!! : )

  21. Awesome!!!! Loved your sonic journey through wonderland!!!

    Thank you so much for joining in the Mad Tea magic!
    A very merry unbirthday to you!

    <3 Vanessa {A Fanciful Twist}

  22. What a fabulous collection of videos Holly! Vanessa said it perfectly - I loved your sonic journey through Wonderland too! Jefferson Airplane's White Rabbit is one of my all-time favourite songs :D

  23. Omnia and Stevie Nicks are literally my two favourite musical acts. You have excellent taste my friend! Hope you're having a lovely tea party season ;)

  24. Fabulous!! Your celebration is delightful, my Dear...I'm so glad I stopped by!

  25. I love the song White Rabbit! I shall check out some of the other music!

  26. party game - guess my age. when music was my life, my friends and i would go 'clubbing' every weekend. we wore our hair big and our waists small. we wore tight jeans and spent most of the time on the dance floor. Depeche Mode comes to mind. lol. thanks for sharing! ps. i still love grunge (Pearl Jam rocks)! cheers luvvy, erin ; D

  27. pss. i really appreciated the musical tribute because honestly i don't know how many more dainty tea cups and fatty treats i could take!

  28. It is a bit of a scary tea party, so I will hold my breath and sip quickly.
    Thanks for the tea and the delight/fright!

  29. Oh, Holly, what a fabulous playlist of Alice songs! And yes, Doll Parts is a song just for us doll lovers, right? ('Doll lovers' sounds wrong. Sounds like some exotic Japanese paraphilia) Thank you so much for including White Rabbit! I love that song! Starts off quiet and rises into tuneful, but demented, yelling. In fact, I'm going to play it again. Thank you for inviting me to tea!

  30. Thank you all for joining the rabbits and me for tunes and tea!
