Practical Magic 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?
