I decided this year it was all about putting on a pair of “witchy shoes” . . .
It’s really quite amazing what one pair of fun shoes can do for a gal, changing you into a whole different person for a few hours.
And for me, sparking this year’s theme for my annual witches tea party.
I decided to go kind of whimsical and fun this year . . .
Focusing my color scheme to orange, purple, green, and of course a little black.
I found the perfect material and made table runners as placemats. Which matches perfectly with my orange and purple dinner plates.
I mixed every other place setting with either orange or purple dinner plates and then layered on a white salad plate and black soup bowls.
I just played around with the table scape collecting items which kept with the color scheme or shoes. It’s amazing what you can find when you choose a theme. Although I will put in a little note . . . I always think of my theme way in advance and begin collecting for a few months and using items from previous years.
As I played with the theme I decided the big halloween colored gum balls matched perfectly and where so much fun so I filled little (matching polka dotted baggies) with gum balls and tied them up with a shoe tag which I placed in the soup bowls.
Each place setting also had a little picture frame tying in the theme of the shoes as well as a fun little message (color scheme) on the other side.
And you know me, I couldn’t just leave them alone, of course they needed a junk bow added on.
After the table was set I added little vignettes throughout the home to carry on the theme.
Even our appetizer island joined in.
(do you just adore Patti’s appetizer)
The treats all joined in as well.
Colored popcorn balls with little tags . . .
Homemade chocolate (witches shoes) pretzel sticks . . .
As each guest would be leaving with her witchy treats, a fun themed gift bag was waiting to help them out.
Thank you, ghoul friends for putting on those witchy shoes and joining the fun for the evening.
(me and my sis)
You know, it’s true what they say . . .
“Give a woman the right pair of shoes and she can conquer the world”, at least for an hour or so . . .
(I couldn’t help myself, I had to make some witchy shoe book ends)
*i bought these at a thrift store, painted them and then hot glued the rest)
*Huge thanks to Mckenna and Shelly Stoker for sending me my witches shoes . . .
