a tea party under a halloween moon




Hello and welcome my pretties! I'm so glad you received my invitation. I see you followed Edgar through the Dark Woods and found the moonlit path. Oh that Edgar is such a helpful dear. I don't know how I would have made it through October without him!


Come this way. I see the moon just starting to rise above the treetops. I've been waiting for you and I'm so excited to have you over. I'm getting tingles all the way down to my witchy toes!


That's such a lovely broom you flew in on....I love the sparkles on the bristles! You can park it over here by this tree stump if you like.



Would you like to keep your cloak on? There's a delicious chill in the air this evening.


Welcome to my Autumn tea party! I worked on this brew all week long. It's an old recipe handed down to me by my great great great Aunt Imogen. Her woodland tea parties were legendary.


Go ahead. Grab a tea cup and I'll pour.


I love the smell of Autumn tea. Cinnamon, apple, caramel and spice...and just a hint of candy corn.


I got up before dawn this morning. I've been waiting all year for it and I knew with tonight's full moon I would find it. It's hidden deep in the woods. In the very darkest part so you have to summon up all your courage to get there. I did with Luna by my side and there it was, just beyond the goblins pumpkin patch....wondrous Fairy Lights! The faeries must have had their party last night and if you're a lucky witch they might leave one of their lanterns for you to find!


But alas the lovely light will only last through this night's full moon. Then just like the enchanted month of October it will be gone all too soon...


Oh but let's not think about such dreadful things. Our party is in full swing and there are sweets and treats waiting for you on my witchy table.


Did you fly by the moon on your way over here? Flying always gets my sweet tooth going. It must be the crispy Autumn air...I think it smells like baking apples and crunchy leaves!



It wouldn't be a tea party without chocolate frosted cupcakes...



....and buttery sugar cookies with pumpkin sprinkles.



These are my Charmed Tea Spoons. I found them at The Magic Broom Closet on my way to the Halloween party last week. They add just the right amount of sweetness to your tea and you never have to stir! What will those crafty witches think of next?



Goodness...I've forgotten my manners! Some of you might have already met my Lucinda. She never misses a tea party when she isn't busy keeping me inspired in my little work studio.



And Oliver came with his newest friend Blossom. She has a fascinating tale to tell...




Blossom was once part of a traveling circus. A band of woodland thieves that traveled from grove to grove putting on a rag tag show. Blossom was part of the trapeze act but she hated that life and longed to be free. She wanted to live somewhere where she could inspire others with her beauty.

 One day a most magical fairy came to see the show. She was wearing a glorious cloak covered with flowers and butterflies. When the fairy wandered around the grounds exploring the caravans Blossom jumped into her pocket and went home with her. You can imagine the fairy's surprise when she reached into her pocket for a lemon gumdrop.

Blossom lived with the magical fairy for a time. Inspiring her to create such wondrous art. One day the fairy said "Blossom you have inspired me everyday and now it's time for you inspire others. You shall go to live with a whimsical witch who will treasure you and shower you with sparkles and spells."

Blossom agreed. That fairy happened to be a dear friend of mine. And that's how Blossom came to live with me.


Oh I think more guests have arrived! Welcome, welcome!



There's lots more tea and sweets left for everyone.



I just brewed another pot.



Fresh candy corn. Grab a handful before they're all gone! Does anyone really know where candy corn comes from?


How about a licorice wand? I ordered these from Honeydukes just for our party.



Don't forget to cast your spells on this most magical night. I have a few planned for later once Luna returns from her moonlight wandering.



I felt a stronger chill in that last breeze. It made my wind chimes play a festive goblin tune. I love the sound these enchanted spoons and forks make. They make me think of a gypsy wagon rolling through the woods, overfilled with baubles and wares. I was gifted this magical object by still another lovely fairy friend!



We are being watched I believe. By a silent guest with a message that the time is near for our revelry to come to an end.



The moon is higher now and the sky grows darker still. It's time for you to make your way back through the Dark Woods and on to visit all the other amazing tea parties.



I thank you for playing with me here in the autumn woods and for joining me for my first Tea Party Under a Halloween Moon. I truly had a magical time. There's still a whole week left of enchanted October and of course the BIG day we've all been waiting for is still to come.



And now I shall have one last bite of frosting and a final sip of tea before I dust off my broom and fly away to visit you! Please make sure to leave a comment with the link to your party post. That way everyone can visit you anytime even after I have taken the guest list down.

I have a little treat to giveaway if you leave a comment and I will draw a winner on Halloween night. Along with a bag of Autumn treats the winner will also receive their choice of the latest issue of one of these Stampington magazines. They're all so inspiring I would have a hard time choosing one too!




Finally I leave you with one last poem about my very favorite month...


October's Party

October gave a party
The leaves by hundreds came
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.

~George Cooper



 
I'd also like to say thank you to two lovely faerie friends. Marfi who made Blossom, the adorable flower baby. And Theresa who gave me the beautiful wind chimes (handmade by her talented husband) which I won from her Practical Magic party giveaway. Thank you both. You are truly magical!

Mrs Yappy Dog said...

Thankyou so much - your party has been lovely. I arrived a little late but the moon was still up (I ws the silent observer, you probably sensed my presence from a distance) the wind carried my with the help of my neighbours black sun parasol! it worked like a parachute. Please try it when you visit mine on Saturday 30th (you will already know about this by telepathic invitation of course) ... I have had too much cinnamon in my tea but it has been fun and as the sun rises I will creep back to bed with dreams of your lovely party. xxx

I had such fun traveling through your post! Wonderful & bravo! Gorgeous photo's! Your blog is so truly inspiring! I'm unsure if I'll be able to post or not. I wasn't able to prepare ahead of time and last week's surgery was much harder on me than expected. I may take this opportunity to write a story if I'm able and share the link later. Of course venturing out into the chilly night to capture images of this full moon would be in order if the story flows... Thanks also for the chance to win one of the Stampington issues! (I have that Artful Blogging and Somerset Life, just fyi). Such delightful fun!

Dearest Miss Anna,
Oh my my, I am still partying at your place. Thank you for leaving the fairy lights on. You know me....Always late. I am having such a great time looking at all the lovely decor and such wonderfully magical treats. YUMMY!!!
Please stop by for a special cup of tea, and some Magical Wonderland fun.
You have inspired me to go outside and play in the gypsy caravan. It is a perfect Autumn night and the gypsy witch is having fun.
You are just amazing. I am more inspired every time I see a new post.
Spells and Wishes,
Wendy from wonderland

Sparkster said...

Anna,
I've only just popped in for a quick nibble, unable to resist the lure of those windchimes and the decadent feast you've laid out for us. I dare say it rivals that of those beyond the veil!

I brought along a little something sweet too. I've placed it beneath a willow just over the way. (http://fortheloveofcreativity.blogspot.com/2010/10/under-halloween-moon-tea-party-part-one.html) Have a nibble, and then if you like, stop by tomorrow evening to see what else appears.

hugs and heart,

Angelique

racheld said...

OH, MY DEAR!!

I've totally missed the fete, and am devastated that I did not hold up my hostessly duties!!! I plead a dreadful cold which took away all my faculties for anything save Kleenex and coughdrops.

I though of it not ten minutes ago, when I saw the "Marquette" flash on the board at Lawn Tea just now, I just KNEW I'd missed the whole thing. The most mysterious part of this is that I did not KNOW WHERE YOU ARE. Something in the enchantment of it all just told me I'd slept through as if the hedge had grown high and the courtiers languished.

Oh, I WILL go see all the preparations, and I WILL have a party next week. And anyone is SO welcome to drop in.

Your party has been splendid, and I wish I could sing for my supper, but I'm a bit hoarse. I'll just say that I've thoroughly enjoyed every scape and every scent, every vignette, every creature, every color, every glow.

Thank you, thank you for the invitation, and I will never again be so remiss a guest as to stay away from such a splendid evening. It was totally delicious.

Justina said...

Hey ANNA!!
Sorry I'm late, I have been slowly but surely making my rounds :-) ... I am speechless, yet other spellbinding post from you !! Your cupcakes were FANTABULOUS!! I think I might bust at the seams if I have one more! You are so lucky to have Edgar to help you through October ... It's a good thing I had Penelope too , what a party mouse !! Blossom's story was so great, I am off to visit your fairy friend Marfi after here ! And the silverware windchimes from Theresa seemed to come in real handy! They look , and i'm sure sound so beautiful and spine chilling, tingling against the wind !! Thank you for offering the scrumptious pumpkin soup... it felt so good on my sore chest... you must have laced it with your healing magick, because I think this yucky cough is finally breaking up in time for the festivities this weekend ! I am so glad it at least happend last week , and not this week!! I'm still scrambling to finish my costume, decorate the house to it's fullest, buy the food and stuff , then finally prepare for the big party on Saturday night! I cannot wait to share the pictures with you all!! Well sorry for writing you a book, and I apologize for calling you Miss Vanessa.. it was getting very late towards the end of my post, and I was definitely probably feeling those meds, LOL!!

Well Penelope and I couldn't thank you enough for stopping by and enjoying some Pumpkin Cream Puffs :-) Thank you for being such a lovely hostess :-) Have a Happy and Safe Halloween!!

-Justina

I am trying not to make myself wrong...
I thought the party was on the 29...:(
(long sigh)
Visiting each and everyone in here this morning was beautiful, very inspiring... and in the spirit of forgiveness (self) I promise to bring to you some Dia de los Muertos photos, we are going to view the "ofrendas" tonight.

I just happened along this wonderful tea party. Although a year late in getting here (I had broom troubles and a spell backfired.. could have been a time travel spell, oh well the fact is I am here now and I have so enjoyed my self. Hope there shall be another this fall.
