Painting the Roses Red

The Centerpieces for our Mad Hatter Tea Party were a combination of white and red roses... with a nod to the tree with white roses that the Queen's gardeners paint red with the hope of tricking her into believing that the tree is the red rose tree that she ordered. Small red paint pots were at the base of the arrangement, and several red tipped brushes were tucked in among the roses. Playing cards symbolize Seven and Five, the Queen's gardeners, busily painting the roses.

How fun! I thought about playing up the painting the roses at my tea in December, but then went a different direction. Love it.
