To our 5th annual Halloween party!!
This is such an exciting time of year.
Autumn is in the air, and for those of us who love Halloween...
It doesn't get any better than the magical feeling it brings.
We are having a garden Halloween party at the cottage, do come in!
Scarecrows, pumpkins and orange lights galore...
Ribbons and treats, and oh, so much more!
This party is for you, jump in 1 2 3...
If you really believe, you could actually dream yourself here, yes indeed!
Oh, I see you now!
Welcome welcome, to our tiny town.
Boys arrive in furry costumes...
So realistic, they almost had me fooled!
There are oodles of treats.
Enough for seconds and thirds for sure!
Don't miss the warty caramel apples on apricot tree branches.
Pumpkins of all shapes and sizes are great guests.
As the spooky Queen Cake hand shows up to taste test!
Not to mention, bugs in frosting are just the thing...
To make your worldly palate sing!
Green witch cake gruel!
(just put food coloring in your cake batter - I used lots of green and a little blue)
And a vampire clown or two, too.
Spells and potions as you wish...
And the orange flame candle, lit for a year of bliss!
Locked up nice and safe, are...
The witch fingers themselves.
Folks travel near and far, for a taste so sweet, it's hard to beat...
Unexplainable power bestowed when nibbled, they say.
So take a bite, eat it whole, go ahead, pave the way!
(I made these fingers, and dusted them -using a paintbrush- with powdered cocoa before putting them in the oven. Recipe links and tips at my other blog, here)
Don't be shy, I say.
Now plunge for sure, okay?
Sparkle and magic and imaginations running wild!
Fantastical treats and moments in time we await, year after year...
The end of October, a time of year so vastly dear.
Our childhood comes by for a visit.
And in some miraculous way, we feel free to unleash our true selves.
Although, Witchy says we should always carry it with us.
No matter the age.
No matter the time.
No matter what anyone says.
The magic is always within us...
Waiting to take a skipping stroll, a twist a tumble.
Let hair loose, and off we go!!
Dancing in circles under candle and moon light...
Cheers, cheers, cheeeers to the ghoulish world!!
Mayhem and merriment, clink to that, yes sireeee!
As night embraces us, and stars twinkle way up in the sky...
Anything is possible.
You don't even have to try.
It's there for the taking, a hearty dose of what you need.
Dreams, wishes, miracles, magic indeed!!!
