tea party under a halloween moon

To go to my party post and to leave your party link please go here.

So what does one do after the unbelievably huge Practical Magic Blog Party? As you know I love all things Autumn and Halloween. I couldn't let my first Halloween in Blogland go by with only 1 blog party!

You see Lucinda (my crafty studio witch) and I have a secret wish. One we've been holding onto for a long, long, looong time. And this year we think our wish might actually come true. We have always wanted to have a witches tea party under a Halloween moon. With vintage lace and tarnished teapots set aglow by candlelight. Wicked sweets and other tattered bits.

And so that is what I decided to do...
Join me on the night of the October full moon.
It's on a Saturday this year.

Follow me along a moonlit path.
Into the deepest heart of the autumn woods.

Where burnished moonflowers
and twinkling lanterns light our way.

Underneath a full Halloween moon we'll set our table and have a wicked tea party. You're welcome to bring anything you like. Bewitched teacups, singing pumpkins, candy corn stripped cats, cackling ravens and of course wandering witches. There might even be a ghost or two.

Have your tea party for one or for ninety one!

You can have a real tea with real people. Or one with your favorite magical friends. Come and show off your Halloween art, crafts, decorations, collections, stories, costumes and edible delights.

For a few ideas you can go here, and here.

Here is a button for you to add to your bloggy. You can save it from here or grab the code from my sidebar. On the day of the party please leave a comment on my party post and include the link to your actual post. This will ensure that everyone can find your party even after I take the names from the sidebar down.
If you would like to join me, Lucinda, Fiona, Luna and all my other witchy kin simply leave a comment and let me know.

 Let's make the most of our favorite season before it goes away!

Anonymous said...

Wow sounds so fun!!!! I'm in!!!


RachelD said...

What a lovely idea!

I've been craving a Lawn Tea all Summer, and I think it will be just as lovely with leaves rustling underfoot as on the silky lawn of September.

Dragonfly lights and a Teacup Tree await, with at least one sprite in green draperies.

We'll serve Moonbeam Tea and Fairy Cake, with runcible spoons, plates of electrum, cups of horn.

A cauldron of mead steamed warm and sweet, to toast the pale and golden moon, and fruit from Goblin Market---the spell uncast on this one night of the year.
