Witches' Tea Party 2015


A Little Story : The Party of Good Fortune



Thank you so much for hosting such a wonderful and unique party! 
All the other participants can be found on her blog!



A Little Story: The Party of Good Fortune

The lilac witch teleported to the gypsy wagon in the forest with a quick tap of her wand. Once she had regained her bearings and adjusted her hat, she recalled what she was going to ask the seer. She was going to the seer to determine whether or not her party would be of good fortune before she sent out invitations. 




As the lilac witch approached the old, crackled gypsy wagon, she admired trails of sparkle that were sprinkled around the forest floor and bushes. As she was gazing about her surroundings, the small seer steeped out of her wagon through its back door. The lilac witch turned, noticing the seer, and said, " I would like a quick reading in your crystal ball please". The little seer turned to get her crystal ball, but turned back and said quietly, " I would need 50 cents first." The lilac witch sighed, took off her hat, shook out two quarters, and handed them to the seer. 







The seer scurried quickly into her wagon, pulled out two small chairs and the crystal ball, and placed them on a small table she had on her property. She gestured for the lilac witch to sit, and so she did. The seer focused intently on the crystal ball for a minute or two, sat up, and then determined, " There will be some slight obstacles, but over all, the party will be of good fortune." The lilac witch exclaimed, " How wonderful!" She thanked the seer for her reading, left a tip, and quickly teleported back to her home to address invitations to a couple friends that she wanted to invite. 







Once the lilac witch made it home, she quickly wrote the letters, and sent them to her friends with another swish of her wand. She sat thinking about what to do next. She suddenly had an idea, and bolted to her yard.






Once the lilac witch made it to her yard, she noticed the tiny pumpkin seeds that still lay in a packet by her little gardening table. She thought, maybe I could win the largest pumpkin contest. Of course she used magic, which was probably cheating, but the lilac witch didn't mean any harm. She waved her wand on the little pumpkin seeds, and she was almost trampled instantly by the huge, azure tinted pumpkin that had sprouted into the ground. She knew some individuals in the town would probably see it, so she just left it there, and decided to run off into the town square to gather supplies for her party.









She looked around the happy little town square, filled with various Halloween activities, contests, and festive decorations. The air was cold and fresh. As she skipped around, looking at fellow citizens' booths, she looked up briefly, and noticed the adorable Halloween banner that had been displayed in the town that had been handcrafted with scraps of burlap and old cloth, which was used in that year's harvest.







She glanced at the candy corn contest, and noticed that they were selling some of the winning candy corn as well. She picked up some of these, as they would be useful for her party. She dropped the money into a little jar that was located by the stand. 






The lilac witch kept walking, and suddenly saw a pumpkin patch, and realized that she would need some pumpkins for her party. She paid for two, and dashed off.







Little did she realize as she was running that at the pumpkin contest, someone had claimed her pumpkin to be their's and had won third place.







The lilac witch stopped when she made it to the apple bobbing area. She thought it would be fun to try, so she dropped 10 cents into a container next to the sign, and tried.








The witch was able to get three apples. Pleased with herself, she asked a random person nearby to take her picture of her with the apples. 






Meanwhile, while the lilac witch was getting her photo taken, one of her friends who had received her party invitation had just missed her, as she had been informed that the lilac witch had been there seconds ago. She sat, slightly annoyed, but then realized she would just wait by the lilac witch's gate until she came home. 







When the bat walked towards the front gate, she was surprised to see another guest had been invited to the party. She introduced herself, and it turned out that he had been looking for the lilac witch too. They sat and talked for a couple minutes, when they heard a voice from inside the gate. 







The lilac witch called, " Come enjoy the party, don't sit out there!" Her guests, the bat and the parrot, let themselves in through the gate and sat down at the table. The lilac witch jumped up, ran inside her home, and came out again with cupcakes and a candy skull. 







The bat and the parrot sat down, and as the evening went on, the party became very enjoyable. Everyone had a great time. Finally, when it was time for the bat and the parrot to leave, everyone hugged and promised they would have another party like this more often. After they left, the witch sat for a while, thinking about everything. " Well," she said aloud, " I suppose it was a good party."







The lilac witch picked up her wand and let it glide through the air, while she was chanting a spell. There was a poof of light as sparkle flew across the room, and her broom appeared. 







The witch stepped outside into her yard ; she looked around once more, before hopping on her broom and flying away. 







She enjoyed the darkness and the glow of the night. 



Happy Halloween!

  6. Sara,
    I love your Mom Su's blog. I've fallen in love with your whimsical style and I am a follower now. Loved your staging outside it gives a realistic setting for a Witch fantasy told with Yummy candy and sweetness. I especially enjoy the play between reality and fantasy. I loved your words "darkness and the glow of the night". Happy Halloween.
    xx,
    Vera

    1. Hi, Vera! Thank you so much! I don't have that many followers now, but I plan to continue blogging! I actually staged it right by a couple of old stumps and trees, so if you were near the ground, it would look like a forest! I kind of needed the last words to be remembered, so I had to think of something. Glad you liked it!

      Happy Halloween!
