Practical Magic Party

Practical Magic Blog Party



This kind of party is right up my autumnal whimsical alley.  A party to celebrate a sweet and magical movie.   What fun, and thanks to our hostess Anna of Frosted Petunias! 

Where to begin?  Let's start with the blue and green eyes.   Did you know that I have green eyes?





All of my sons have blue eyes.  When we are all together, that would be eight big blue eyes looking at me.






My daughter has green/hazel eyes, so we are very colorful when all together.






Sally's love interest in the movie has one of each.  Very interesting and kind of intense.  I once knew a girl with one blue and one brown eye and it was so beautiful! 






I adore roses - growing, cutting, smelling, and even giving it to my daughter as her middle name.  Kind of spooky to have a rose growing on an arbor be something evil...






If my roses would grow that quickly, I would plant Jimmy as compost. 






And speaking of Jimmy, he liked his tequila didn't he? 






Actually, I think the ladies had a very good idea with the blender of margaritas.  Who knows, I may treat myself to one tonight - after all, it is a Friday.






I also have to agree with the ladies when it comes to bee's wax candles.  Nothing can compare to the color and fragrance.






I decided to add a little






to my candle cookies so they were sprinkled with disco dust and the center of the flames was cut out and filled with melted yellow hard candy to make a stained glass flame.






The sparkle and warm glow makes them come alive.






Who needs a snickerdoodle when you can have a magical candle cookie? 






I guess I will have to get my stockings on for the festivities.






I'll also need to light some candles, and send special wishes to the other magical party goers.






I think my oven was pretty enchanted today, don't you?
