Earlier this month I kicked off the Halloween season with a fun witches tea. I had such a good time hosting my friends and neighbors and can’t wait to share our fun with you.
Halloween Witches Tea
My Halloween witches tea event started with the invite. I still love a beautiful, handmade invitations. Since most of my invitations were being hand-delivered, I had a lot of freedom to design and embellish them myself. The basic print invite, along with the instructions for embellishing the witches tea Halloween party invitation are available for free download on my site here.
I loved how the invitations turned out and planned my home decor to mirror the crisp black and white palette, with small pops of orange. My full Halloween home tour is available here.
I started outside on the porch with skeletal guardians and loads of Spanish moss. I brought in something of a witchy-vibe by including the words “something wicked” on my white pumpkins. I think the overall effect is super spooky.
You can check out all of the details I included on my Halloween porch here, including the details on how I created my spooky planters.
Once my witchy friends stepped inside the house they were greeted by a fun Halloween photo booth.
The photo booth was a lot of fun and we snagged loads of great photos. For more details on how to create a Halloween photo booth of your own, click here.
Near the photo booth my cute friend Jen, from Classy Cozmetics, set up shop and helped us all with our witchy look.
Once everyone was decked out in webs and wicked, we ducked into the kitchen to enjoy our tea…
I went back and forth as to whether I wanted to use china (eventually I am hoping to own some beautiful black china) or disposable products. In the end a busy schedule pushed my toward the paper products, which I set out in a simple black basket.
Halloween Witches Tea Menu
We had a nice big spread filled with salads, fruit and desserts.
Guests enjoyed white spider eggs (powdered sugar donuts) and crispy bat wings (black and white chips).
The “Go to Kale” salad, as well as Wicked Good Caprese Pasta Salad were both really popular. You can grab the full recipe for the pasta salad, along with a link to purchase the pretty black and white pasta here.
How about an array of “sand witches?”
Or, some MISfortune cookies?
The pumpkin donuts were delicious. If you’d like to make your own, check out this mini pumpkin donut recipe.
And the spiced apple cider was delicious!
We settled in with full plates and left with full hearts.
What a fun Halloween witches tea. I can’t wait to do it again next year!
