Sisters of the Moon...

The night of the Halloween Moon...

(click photos to enlarge)

The perfect time
for Sisters of the Moon
to gather for a soiree..

and a bit of tea...


You can park your broom here by the door...


Come sit for a spell :-)


The candles are lit...


A big pot of piping hot tea
is ready to warm your chilly bones...


The butlers have been turned to crows
to serve your every need..
Are you ready for them to pour you a cup?


We will be using my favorite Bone China...


How about a sweet for you?
My pretties...


Or perhaps with a long flight ahead of you
a nosh of fruit
will serve you better?


A little light reading,
to be shared among friends...


I have brought my Vintage Thingy...

Among such a group of witches,
surely someone will have knowledge
 of the mysterious powers it holds...


A Red Rose from my magical garden...

The Magical Tea Parties continue
Stop by for a cup!


I am also joining
 Funky Junk Interiors for Saturday Nite Special
and
Seasonal Sundays at The Tabelscaper

Thanks for Flying With Me:-)

Hi Bella!
I LOVE this! Gorgeous and magical table...I love the photo effects too!
A great moonlight shot also...I've tried to get pictures like that, but my camera doesn't seem to have the capability.

ok, I was reading along thinking 'how pretty and elegant' , then I read "I've brought my Vintage Thingy" and I nearly spewed coffee on my monitor I laughed so hard.Don't know why it struck me so funny, but I haven't giggled that hard in a while :-)
It's very interesting, and could be used as an athame; a magical "knife"associated with the elements Fire and Air for casting your circle in spells and rituals.

Holy Coolness, Bella! I am bewitched by it all! GREAT post- xxoo Diana

Tete said...

Soooo spooky! Love it. Such an enchanting table you set. Your lighting is perfect to cast shadows upon your guests and make the evening a little more creepier. The broom parking is adorable. So glad you tidied the spiders and their webs from the table. I think those are so over rated these days.
Just a simply lovely way to spend the bewtiching hour.
Hugs- Tete

Que Bella said...

Oh my... how spooky! I love the statue with the hat and your candelabra. Thank you for sharing.

Lavender Cottage said...

Hi Bella
You've created excellent staging for a hauntingly beautiful Halloween tea.
I see the vintage thingy remains without a proper name yet but someone is bound to recognize it.
That crow of yours sure gets around, maybe you'll have to cage him on Hallows Eve. :-)

Hi Bella, congratulations! Were you able to capture your visual story my attention. Every picture tells your invitation to accurately! everything looks a little intimidating, the table and its details, are very good "visual storytelling." Rose Marie greetings
