Welcome to our 2011 Halloween Celebration!!
Won't you come in?
Do follow the path...
Through the arbor, and into our garden...
I see some of you are sneaking in through the flower path, how wonderful!
The evening is filled with a buzz of excitement and wonderment. The scent of kettle corn and caramel apples fills the air. It is a scent reminiscent of childhood days. The magic of Halloween, lives in the ability to delve into childlike frolic and abandon, year after year.
And so, under the giant trees, we gift to you, a perpetual Halloween party!
Just look at your exquisite frock! You look magnificent!
What fun, what merriment!!
Oh, let's jump in, and enjoy!
Treats and tricks, spells and incantations, dance about!
Choose your favorite sweet, and let's think about dancing!
So many characters tucked away, insisted that this Halloween would be their time to come out and play. They are so excited to meet you!
There is pumpkin love galore...
Why, I can hardly believe it is this time of year. Must play and soak it all in. It's these very parties that help bring the spirit of the season to life in our home.
And so, I thank you so much, for joining in!
Whether peeking in as a guest, or hosting your own party, I am so very glad you are joining us.
So is bobble head witch, I hear ;)
Oh and, beware of poison, and evil witches conjuring!
The magic is beginning its dance in the air. Drifting from here to there...
So much mystery, oooooooo!
Anything can happen on Halloween!! (or so they say)
Munch away, twirl and sway!!
Choose your favorite dance partner, such as they...
Tip-toe around, in your pointy shoes, filling your striped bloomers with all manner of treats! (I see you! Haha!)
But, beware of the hand that beckons you...
Before you know it, a spell could be cast on you. Yes, it could. Trust me ;)
Ask Mister Frog who he used to be, and when you hear his voice, you will know, no lies come from me...
Captured pumpkins wait to become pie, yummmms!
Whilst elfin babes hang out in their punkin cottage! How cozy, how quaint!
Are you up for having your fortune told?
I know your fortune....
Tonight, you will eat beyond many treats!!!
And they will be, oh so worth it, and oh so tasty!
The witches that have gone before us, teach us new spells...
Like, how to grow your hair to your knees over night. And, how to win the lottery... (watch out for the bodyless hand below, literally, eeeeeks!)
I for one need some broom trick lessons. What about you?
Oh oh, and, no proper Halloween fête could be without caramel apples, as far as I am concerned. They are my faves! Miam miam!
Did you see that? A black candle was blown out by the wind. A sign that, more magic is to come, indeed!!!
The sun is setting, and with that arrive more witches and warlocks, and ghosties, and you and you and you!!
Darkness falls quickly, on this gloriously wonderful night...
I see more guests making their way, following the golden light...
It is an absolutely delicious evening!!
Purple and orange twinkling lights, work to illuminate the sky...
Darkness brings cackles a plenty!
Antique lace up boots dance about! (I know that's you)
What a sublime time!
Are you having fun??
I can hardly contain myself!
Oh and look, the boys have lined up...
They are bobbing for apples!
Elves stay warm, in their cozy abode...
As the evening goes on and on, and on!
I never want it to end...
I love these autumn evenings, with star-light a plenty, and bewitching nights with friends!
Let's bottle it up! Halloween merriment in a jar. You know the spell, I am certain!
I hope you are enjoying our Halloween party, because we threw it just for you. Filled it with all the Halloween goodness we could muster, and then, sprinkled it with fairy dust. For good measure, of course.
So, let's keep dancing and singing, and having the time of our lives!
Thank you so much, for being a part of this year's festivities!!!
The magic of Halloween continues!!

psss: Saturday update (noon): I am finally removing the cobwebs from my exhausted witchy self friends! Helooooooo! I am getting my broom ready to party! I was up until 4 a.m. Something quite challenging for a girl that goes to bed at 7:30 and wakes at 5 to tend her garden. And to think, there was once a time when I begged to stay out and dance until 4 a.m. ;) OKay, I will be visiting today and tomorrow, and as long as it takes me to make all my visits!! See you sooooooon! Sunday is a full fledged party day too!! Love, V
