Tea Party Under A Halloween Moon! Hosted by Frosted Petunias

Hey lovelies!!

I almost thought I wouldn't make this one, with all of my real life Halloween Party/Costume prep, since I am making my WHOLE costume from scratch this year! It is so much work, but will look so amazing once I am actually able to wear all of it !?!? AAHH! I am so excited, I cannot contain it , at all !!

It does kinda suck though , because I am sick at the moment. I think I have come down with an Upper Respiratory Infection, I am so prone to these , I hate it !! So I had to really pull every last bit of myself together, to get these pics done... At least once that part was done, I got to lay in bed on my laptop as I edited :-) ... I did not want to let Miss Anna down!!

If you have not already, please visit Miss Anna's blog, she is so creative and talented, and it seems like she is such an awesome multitasker!

Frosted Petunias Tea Party Under A Halloween Moon

And now , without further adieu, I bring you La Boheme Magique's Tea Party Under a Halloween Moon!!

There once was a little mouse named Penelope Mouskewitch, and Oh! How she LOVED Halloween! This year she decided to have a tea party and have all of her friend's over to celebrate! But wait! She needed a costume! What was a mouse to wear? So she scratched her little noggin, and scratched it some more, and decided to sit down at her antique sewing machine, and make the first thing that popped into her mind !


Once she started sewing, she couldn't stop! And time ticked away! The party was only in an hour! And she still had to do her witching hour spell, and take her Pumpkin Cream Puffs out of the oven before they burned!!


She headed over to her pantry, where she collected ingredients to whip up a special concoction!


She also sought to her Voodoo magick alter, adorned with idols and statues of magic wizards, china dolls, potion bottles, and a voodoo worry doll!


Alas! She had found the perfect spell!!

When the white dog is out
And trots all about
Under the clouds
That are over the Moon,
And the hag with her broom
Rides high on the wind,
And the cat on the fence
Spits even at friends,
Then it is right
To conjure a light
Against every Spirit
That shadows the night.
Thus Say:

Let the pumpkin's
Candle glare
Into darkness
Burn all evil
From the air!

When it is dark
And the black trees roar,
Set Jack'o'Lantern
To watch by the door...

She poured her contents into her magickal black cast iron cauldron, and this amazing light had emerged from it! You could feel the electricity running through the room, charging the evening with the magic spirits!


She then smelled something! OH NO!! THE PUMPKIN CREAM PUFFS! She ran to the kitchen and thew open the oven door...


Phew ! Just in time! As the oven door swung open , the Pumpkin Cream Puffs filled the room with such a magical aroma !! Just then the doorbell rang! She had gotten everything done , just in time ! She quickly changed into her homemade costume, and raced to the door!

Her first guest was her dear friend Marvin...
He was a martian, and always hated that everyone got him confused with the character from Looney Toons!! He went to the party as himself, because everyone is always scared of him anyway !


The next guest was Penelope's dear friend Fiona. Fiona had come dressed as a house maid!


The doorbell rang again, and to Penelope's surprise, it was her fun friends Heckyll, Jekyll and Bob! Heckyll decided to be a Clown, Jeckyll decided to be count Dracula, and Bob was dressed as a scary monster dragon!


The doorbell rang once more! It was the trolls from down the mushroom patch ! Higgle, Hoggle, and Gorny!


So all of the guests have arrived!! They all crowded around the dining room table, amongst the Halloween Decor that magically put itself up during Penelope's Magic Spell!

They dined on Pumpkin Creampuffs, cheese and crackers, pumpkin spiced tea, apple cider, and caramel apples! They had delcious conversation , and everyone enjoyed themselves so much! The clock struck 12, and everyone was so pooped from all the ghoulish delightful fun! So they decided to call it a night...


Once everyone had shuffled out, Penelope swept the floor and thought to herself "My , I have such wonderful friends!"


She then went to bed and had dreams of the full Halloween moon...

What a fantastic Halloween it was !


I hope you enjoyed my post... Thank you Anna for hosting such a magical fun filled party !!
