Join Me for Tea...

Welcome, please won’t you join me for some tea? As this is my first ever Witches Tea Party please forgive me if I forget something! Thank you Anna at Frosted Petunias for hosting this magical affair.
If you will step into my parlor the party can begin…


The tea is brewed



The candles are lit...


The table is set...

Shall we sit a spell and chat or shall we sit and chat about spells? Either works for me, it is so nice to share this evening with you.

I painted this picture especially for tonight. I love a good, festive party hat, don’t you?
This week has been one of amazing experiences and memories. Thursday, as I was thinking about the Halloween celebrations we had when I was a child I got a whiff of my grandmother’s perfume. It was such an amazing gift!


Tucked in amongst the candles and treats is a picture of my grandmother (She is on the right). She would have loved this party. She was an amazing woman and helped raise me after my parents divorced. This party is a tribute to her.  As you sip your tea, think fondly of the amazing people in your life, those who have passed on and those who are still with you! This is my favorite time of year, I feel so much closer to those who have already passed on as the veil thins.

We have several types of tea tonight: peppermint, green, Chai and then a few more magical brews that I am sure you’ll enjoy. As you can see we also have some “finger” foods as well as some more traditional snacks. I do love good finger food.




Prince Fang decided to join us tonight and it looks like he brought a friend. This is quite a treat as he doesn’t venture out too much if there are people around.  He won’t bite… I promise!


I hope you’ve enjoyed your time with me.  Have fun at your next stop. Maybe I’ll see you there!


Be sure to visit Frosted Petunias for directions to more of this weekend's festivities.

  8. Salutations, your Tea Party & Creations are Enchanting. Your pretty grandmother would be proud that her lovely granddaughter has accomplished so much. I too, love knowing that the veil between the living & spiritual world is lifted. AND on All Hallows' Eve at the stroke of midnight you can hear whispering in the wind...

    This is my favorite time of year when magic is in the air & beautiful black cats are every where. Please fly by my Halloween Party when you can...

    Hauntingly Yours,
    Lyndy & All My Black Cat Familiars

  27. What a nice Tea Party! The teas were excellent. I started with the Green and then moved on to your more magickal brews. Prince Fang was quite charming especially when he spoke in rhyme. And those eggs were delicious!

    Although I’m not part of the Tea party, I would love it if you visit my blog and read the little bit of Flash Fiction I wrote in time for Halloween.
