Practical Magic Is Afoot!

Welcome my lovelies! Welcome to my party inspired by the movie Practical Magic. I adore this movie, and from how many people are participating in this party, I can see I am not alone!

But enough about that, won't you come in? It is a full moon, and you know what that means.

I have the table set up with all we will need for our witchy workings....

So put on your tiger's eye ladies (and possibly gentlemen), and prepare to mix up some magic. I have got mine right here.....

Oh wait I almost forgot, we need something to get us in the mood. So, speaking of mixing things up, it is time for midnight margaritas!!!

Eye of newt and toe of frog....well you know the deal!

Don't forget the Barbados lime.

How convenient!

Okay, now we are ready. The candles are lit, time to dim the lights.

What shall we do first? Have a spot of tea?

Write some letters? Don't forget to seal it with wax.

Familiars are invited too of course.

There is just so much magical loveliness, I don't know where to begin!

I know, let's whip up a spell!

We have everything we need right here...


Shall I tell your fortune?


Herbs of course.

Be sure blend them well...

Now, add everything to our cauldron full of spells...

And watch the magic happen!

Well thank you, you wonderful white witches, for stopping by! And do come back, you know where to find me. I will be here drinking margaritas and cooking up spells and mischief, and would welcome your company any time! Just follow the light of the hearth...

Until the next full moon....
