Remember I made this little collage for this post? And you are still welcome by the way to use it for your desktop wallpaper if you like. Just click on it for the bigger image and save to your computer. It was this post that inspired me to come up with my Halloween tea party. Long before I even dreamt of starting my own blog I would search for witchy tea parties and dream about having one.
I thought of having a real one but most of my creative friends that would appreciate something like this live too far away. Then I discovered blog parties. And wonderful amazing bloggers like you who don't think I'm odd (or maybe you're just happily odd like me too) because I obsess about an old movie about witches or that I put ravens in my chandelier before October.
I snuck my tea party post in with the PM party and I didn't get to officially invite everyone. I know some of you already signed up and I'm just so wonderfully excited about it. With so many Halloween blog parties going around next month you would think I'm a bit mental to add to the fray. But I just love Halloween and I couldn't pass up celebrating my first All Hallows in blogland without a proper tea.
So this is my official invitation to you to join me for a Tea Party Under A Halloween Moon. And yes it is an actual full moon on that date which is why I chose it. Now October is absolutely mad at my house. It starts with a trip to our fall Ren faire (hopefully this weekend if the weather cools down), then my son's birthday and I've filled all the other weekends with as much Halloween as I can. Most of the events involve some kind of dress up which is normal for me. To again quote my nearly 14 year old son... "You always look like you're going to Diagon Alley anyway."
So I am actually planning both my tea party post and my post for the Fanciful Twist Halloween Party now and I'm hoping to have both done at the same time. Although they will be completely different from each other.
Utter madness? Yes.Sheer lunacy? Of course! But this is my season. I live for autumn and I'd rather fill it to the brim with all the pumpkins, leaves, teapots and pointy hats I can grab and then take a break the rest of the year. Yule and Christmas are for family.....although I can't resist a frosty winter wonderland...
Anywhoo. I hope you can join me for tea and even if you can't this time I hope you still feel like you might have stepped into that Glade commercial when you come here to see me. I truly love meeting all of you amazing, enchanted and kindred souls.
You make my life magic.
