a witches tea party!


Come this way dear witches!



The Lady LaLou is here to make sure I don't forget anything.

My tea party cauldron is filled with my favorite goodies....
mini pumpkins, a spell book and even a lovely little witch from
a sweet faerie friend.


I know the perfect place to go for a witches tea.


Tucked away in a corner under a creaky old sign.


Did you see the brand new moon up there?

I caught a glimpse of it when I flew by on my sparkly broom.


Come and join me in my favorite tea shoppe!


This is where I love to relax with a few of my favorite things.


Here are my treasured teacups and art from a magical friend.


A tiny witch in a bag from a super talented witchy friend
and a fun spooky tin from my lovely swap partner.



Here of course is my dear Lucinda...


the lovely Fiona...


...good witch Celestina Vervaine


and fresh from her overnight broom flight is the enchanting Tallulah Bleu...


who also brought us the perfect tea party hat...


Maybe she heard Celestina brought a hat to the party too.


What would a witches tea party be without a magical tea pot?

Should I use this one?

Picked it up in Diagon Alley a while back.


Or perhaps this vintage pumpkin might be the one.


There's even a wee little one tucked away down here under the tea cart.

Maybe the faeries might like this one.


I think I'll choose one of these dainty cups...

There's one for you too.


A ghost butter cookie for me and maybe a pumpkin one for you?

Or would you rather have a bat?


Deliciously bewitching.


Go ahead...you can sneak another one and save it for later.


Don't forget to try the Mystifying Mints before you go.


Someone else decided to join us for tea...


That's my Luna...she can never resist a new witchy broom!


I hope you enjoyed your visit to my tea shoppe...

I loved having you over for tea.

Please leave a comment and let me know you stopped by then join me here again Sunday for the second day of our Witches Tea Party weekend (and a little giveaway too).


Thank you for coming by.

Happy Halloween and
a Blessed Samhain to all my dear witchy friends.

Hi Anna,

What a lovely party post -- true eye candy. :)

I bet you have been very busy in the last few weeks. Organizing all those great events surely takes a lot of time and effort. Well, maybe later you have time to check out at least my Practical Magic post. Or maybe you have already been there?

Greetings from Germany,
Birgit

What a wonderful witches tea!
All of the lovely handmade witches looked like they were having the time of their lives, and me too!
Thank you for such a lovely party!
You are soooo creative, and your muse is vibrant, you always inspire me when I come to your blog.
hugs and may you have lots of pumpkin juice to drink on Halloween!
I think that would be equivalent to: May your beard grow long and the sun always be at your back...for a wizard that is!
I miss Harry Potter! (but I still read the books and watch the movies!)
