A Wicked Good Time

Good morning my friends. How was your weekend? Last Saturday my Witches’ Tea Party took place and we had a wicked good time.

And, of course, my house was transformed appropriately (I never pass on an opportunity to move and change things around), including a coffin where our dear friend Ezramelda (my hubbie named her, *giggle*) laid….

$2 DIY Coffin: 2 dollar tree foam boards, tape together (long ways), cut the ends to create coffin shape. Place on a coffee table and cover with a black or white sheet/tablecloth.

Poor thing donated her brains for us to snack on. =) {Melon and lime gelatin mixed with non fat condensed milk and poured into a brain mold.}

Our living room now overlooks a haunted graveyard. (Another Dollar Tree find!! Yay for Dollar Tree.)

Meghan, from the Go Girl Shoppe was so sweet to give me a pillow when I saw her last weekend at a festival.

So, the Fourth Annual Witches’ Tea Party was spooktacular!  COL (cackle out loud)

  1. Hello. This is a delightful idea! Was wondering if you could give me sample of the menu? Or what would be a good witch tea time menu?

    1. Thanks! There are so many clever ideas on Pinterest for Witches tea parties. I made potato salad sand”witches” with rye bread and arugula and then bought the “trick or treats”. I like using green and dark foods/sweets, zucchini bread, a bowl of olives or grapes. I also have a brain jello mold that I add sometimes!
