Witches Tea Party: It’s All About the Treats!

I’m rolling out the pumpkins in welcome for Members of The Black Hat Society and joining A Fanciful Twist for the 8th Annual Witches Tea Party!


The Witch is In and we’re gathering in the Potting ShedShe’s dressed for Halloween in celebration and ready for our tricks and treats.

This witch doesn’t like things too scary, with the exception of a spider or two. . . a garden trowel, masquerading as a rusty witch hand is wearing a bejeweled spider ring for our party.


Park your broom by the door and come inside. . .


No spooky surprises inside, it’s all about the treats this Halloween!


Deadly Morsels and Twisted Treats are in Ball Jars for our potion making! Chocolate foil wrapped Jacks are yours for the taking, served with sinister skeletal hands.


A wire teapot is filled with pumpkins for our bubbling brew. . .


Grab a Pixy Stix and some candy corn to make your potion extra sweet.


Witch Hat lollipops are served in festive straws.


And a burlap banner puts the ‘Happy’ in Halloween, draped over a layer of gauzy and creepy black fabric, scared up from Dollar Tree.


The owls want to know Whooo doesn’t love Twisted Treats on Halloween?


Help yourself to an easy recipe for Twisted Treats. . .


aka Pretzel S’mores Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars. . .a deadly combination!


A bottle is filled with candy corn and a candle insert for festive and sweet illumination for our witches tea. . .


And Halloween Oreos provide an irresistible specimen in Ball Jars to satisfy this witch’s sweet tooth.


Use your potion stirring skills in the kitchen and whip up a batch of Halloween Oreo Surprise Inside Cupcakes. . .


An easy and fun Halloween treat for little ghouls and goblins!


Stir your brew with candy twist pops or decorate the turrets on a Haunted Castle Cake.


But you’ve been warned. . . Eat at your own risk.



Sweet and Deadly Morsels are always on the menu for Halloween. . .


And a supply of Peeps is ready for a batch of Ghostly Peeps Brownie S’mores

Watch them vanish before your very eyes!

    How insanely fun! So glad I discovered your blog. I am addicted- you have cast a spell!

  17. October 24, 2015 at 10:57 am

    It’s raining here, and I want to spend the day in your potting shed. Oh, I could feast to my heart’s delight on all these goodies and take in the fun of each darling detail. Love the whimsical side of Halloween. No scary, gruesome scenes for me, please.
    Mary, please tell me who makes the wonderful black and white stripe and polka dotted dishes. I think Vanessa has them too. They are black and white at its best!!!
    Wonderful party. I will be back to pin, pin, pin. So many fabulous ideas. This party is full of inspiration. Happy Halloween to you and the girls.

    • October 24, 2015 at 11:00 am

      Thanks Sarah! I think the dishes are by Gracie Teaware, I’ll confirm when I get home and let you know for sure :)

    I’m sure these tablescapes take a great deal of time for you to complete. Thank you so much for sharing them all with us!! They are a real “treat” to peruse in the morning with my coffee! Viewing = all the treats without the calories :)

  19. October 24, 2015 at 11:13 am

    OMGoodness, you knock it out of the park every single time! This is so darn cute and creative and so is your writing! You inspired me last year to do a LITTLE Halloween, so I have a new runner and some things to do another Halloween table this week. Thanks for all the inspiration and FUN you give us with each new post!

  20. October 24, 2015 at 11:33 am

    I wish you were my neighbor! Your tastes are so much like mine. I hate all of the blood, brains and snakes Halloween decor and food items. I have purchased a fair number of items you have photographed (we share a fondness for the same stores) and I say “I can do that”! I first discovered your blog when I was looking for some lunch/dinner ideas for our boat. I’ve been following you since. Keep up your inspiring photos. Love it.

  21. October 24, 2015 at 11:57 am

    Absolutely LOVE everything! Thanks Mary. Happy Halloween. :))

    Your potting shed witches decorations are amazing!! You have a wonderful talent for decorations. May you have a wonderful weekend.

  23. October 24, 2015 at 12:44 pm

    I’m like a kid in a candy store ohhhing and ahhhing if there is such words. I LOVE your cute shed and wish I had one like yours. All the decorations outside and the witches shoes accented the shed is so creative. I could go on and on the haunted house cake, the marshamallow ghosts in the jar and the settings are divine. I think I’ve got a hundred ideas from your party. Take care, Darlene

  24. October 24, 2015 at 12:45 pm

    What an amazing post!! I had to keep going back to the pictures to take everything in!! Thank you so much for creating and sharing! Hope you have an awesome weekend! Christine

  25. October 24, 2015 at 12:57 pm

    Love all of your spooky sweet treats Mary, the foil Jacks and rock candy are really cool! I’d say you’re all set for the party:@)

The garden tool used as a witch’s hand WITH A RING…very clever….the iron teapot…well, I could go on and on. Suffice it to say you have made my day. Thank you!!!

    I am over the top envious of your beautiful dishware and lovely decor, plus your camera skills, me and my camera aren’t getting along so well lately. Envious in the good, friendly, witchy way of course. My blog is empty, but I did have a witches tea this year and you are welcome to see all the fun here

    What a hauntingly great time the witches will have at your tea party. There’s not a thing you missed and needless to say, you went an extra mile in decorating. I love it!

  40. October 24, 2015 at 9:25 pm

    Fun, Fun, Fun….love everything…this is fantastic…can’t wait until next year when ‘spooky scarey’ may be allowed her, lol, Sandi

  41. October 24, 2015 at 10:03 pm

    Well, I’d much rather be a member of the Black Hat Society than a member of the Red Hat Club! You make it all so much fun, Mary! Love every detail down to the iron teapot! Yes, indeed, you are the queen of Halloween!

  42. October 24, 2015 at 11:32 pm

    For All Hallows’ Eve, I will wish for my house (specially the dining room) to be overrun by all your “scary” creatures. What a delicious Witches Tea Party–for the eyes and for the mental tummy. Yum!

    Where do I begin to count the ways this whole post delights me!!? My mouth is watering with all the fantastic baking/treats you’ve showcased in such a magnificent way. You’ve worked your magic by playing off those wonderful plates and the little themes on them. From the outside to the inside of your little potting shed, the décor is over the top. Going back to pin and look at all the details again…I’d need to look 10 x to take it all in! Happy Halloween!
