Host A Witches Tea Party

witches tea party

Many moons ago I conjured up an idea to host an early October gathering to help welcome the season of Halloween. I had read about a great way to sample the flavors and smells of autumn by having a witches tea party. What a great idea! It sat in the back of my mind for years but this year I decided to finally do it.

It went better than I expected and now I can’t wait to do it again next year. Keep reading to see how you too can throw a witches tea party of your own.

Disney’s Halloween Time is Back!

Went to Disneyland a few weeks ago and Disney’s HalloweenTime is Back in full swing! Main Street is a kaleidoscope of fall colors. There are pumpkins everywhere throughout the park including a 12 foot high Mickey ‘jack-o-lantern’. Candy and caramel apples are available to satisfy any sweet tooth. Toy Story’s own Woody and Jessie put on a themed show at the Big Thunder Ranch Halloween Roundup.

If you are planning a trip, might want to go during the week when the crowds are slightly less than a weekend. Continue reading
