Hello my friends,
I've mentioned before about how talented my hairdresser is.
Well, last Thursday night, Oct. 13th; the night of the Hunter's Moon; (according to the Farmers Almanac) she outdid herself!
For years it has been a dream of hers to host a "witches soiree".
She wasn't sure if friends and clients would embrace the idea.
I'm here to tell you that 98 of us did!
Yes, 98 'witchy woman' strolled into her backyard for a night we won't soon forget.
Our hostess greeted us at her arbor gate.
We arrived at dusk and the gardens had been magically transformed.
The witchy women, (friends and family that would be
seated at my table)
Jamie, Joyce, Betty, Peggy, Ann, Karrah, Jan, and Kassy
Black umbrellas and large wooden moons hung here and there.
As we entered into the backyard we were serenaded by a couple of talented witches.
Each table was assigned a name. My friend, Jan and her daughter Kassy hold our 'Midnight Embers' sign.
Our table had a view of her fabulous she shed built by her husband last year.
Handmade brooms made from branches and twigs were tied to the back of our chairs.
Once we were seated we helped ourselves to the beverage bar.
My daughter, Karrah and I
My cousin Betty, friend Jan, moi, friends Joyce, Ann, and Peggy.
Lights and small fires lighted the garden.
Our candlelit table
party favors and menus.
Dinner was prepared by her daughter, Sierra and it was so delicious! Bread and rolls, salad, soup, pasta, and carrot or chocolate cake. There was also a table full of snacks, but I never made it over to it.
Karrah, me, and Ann.
The moon was magical. A witchy moon for sure!
After dinner each table rotated through 5 witch stations. We were given a token at each one.
The witch of smell.
Iris, the witch of sight.
The 'moon' witch
The 'star' witch.
and the fortune teller. . .(palm reader)
At the end of the night we were instructed to mix up a magic potion. Joyce's daughter, Jamie was the designated witch that did the honors.
And we toasted to a memorable evening!
Oh what a hauntingly fun night!
I will be sharing with these fun parties:
