Practical magic Party or Witches Party!


I am Joining the Practical Magic blog party! I was inspired by the Movie with Sandra bullock and Nicole Kidman...

Practical Magic Blog Party
So i made this cake....



B IS FOR Broom Bread sticks...


Moon toasts...


Mummy sandwiches...
Witch hats cookies...


Mommy....There is a Tomb outside....
Hmmm Yeah...I know...




Why do you make this face?
Do you like the eye bowl shakes?





Hmmm...Mom...There is a guest....



Did you guys invite him?
Oh...Ok..It's your brother...


Did you bring something...Worms...Hmmm ok nice.....


Whatever! I like worms...


Ok, now...they are everywhere...Never mind! Let's eat!


Yeah....I still think it is weird...It was supposed to be a witch party...


Little sister...have you used that spell? You know the one that raises dead people?

Hmmmm...maybe.....a couple of times...


Hmmm...ok....




Never mind....let's eat!


I'll cut the cake!



Cute Halloween plates from Target...


The chandelier had a makeover...




Witches hats are great on the table to decorate...


SO
The morale of the story.....


If you thought Practical Magic was bad...enough...


What about a 3 year old and the spell...













Witch broom sticks...Coming up.


Mummy dogs...Coming up

Hope this inspires you to have a Halloween party for your family...It is ok to have parties just with your family....it doesn't have to be big....Just have fun and make great memories with your kids...
Love,
Frenchy

Wow, you did a great job! My kids will love it!

Leah said...

You are so awesome and fun! And I love that you gave the okay to have a party with just your family :) so many people save their special dishes, or only clean extra well for guests. But the people in your household are the most important and worth it more than anyone!

Lynn said...

I am totally agreeing with Leah!!

Your kids will remember these moments with their mom and dad (which by the way, I think is way up there in my books for being a totally cool dad for joining in on all the fun parties too)for the rest of their lives. You are a great mom!

Alecia said...

Oh Frenchy, this is so cute. I love it all. Your family is so adorable. I have always loved little girls as witches. They just look so sweet even if they are dressed as a witch. Your son and hubby are hilarious, as well as you. Love the goodies. You need to make a book out of your parties, really. (((((HUGS)))

Hi there! I'm still making my way around the party and I'm so glad I landed here. What a fabulous party you're having. Your little witches are adorable and all the sweet treats look sooo good. LOVE that cake! And I just adore your chandelier as I am quite partial to dressing up a chandelier on a moments notice. Thank you so much for joining our party and for adding to the magic and fun!

aliciajane said...

Practical Magic is one of my favorite movies! It seriously inspired me so much that my best friend and I are starting out own all natural apothecary of lotions, fragrances and all that good stuff just like Verbina Botanicals, (Sally's shop)!

Hope your week is going great! We got our engagement photos taken yesterday, it was so much fun!!!

Susan said...

sooo MAGICALLY FUN!!! I can't believe even your hubby joined in...now that's a catch!(hold on to him, LOL) What a great post...I so miss my children being young, I used to do all this stuff with them. Gosh i miss doing all the little fun things with them, (even though most of the time I wanted to pull my own hair out...2 of my 3 are ADHD, one of them is also ODD and they are only 14 months apart...it was because of these 2 that they tested hubby and I...cause my oldest is not and his child is not, but our 2 together are, results: he is ADD, I am ADHD--my family had pretty much already new this about my brother and I when the diagnosis finally was being talked about, it was like a light bulb went on) anyway sorry to have gone off on a tangent. I THOROUGHLY enjoyed your post, and seeing your family having so much fun together, cherish these days, before you know it, they are grown and want to be with other people, and parties and jobs and college classes, and the house becomes lonely.

I wish there was a spell to stretch it out.

Come visit me Frenchy...and please email me about your FRENCH party, since FRENCH is a HUGE part of my own heritage, you have peaked my interest :)

Mid-Atlantic Martha said...

How fun! Thanks for inviting us to the party and giving us these fun ideas.

Judie said...

"PRACICAL MAGIC" is one of my FAVORITE all-time movies!

Halloween was our favorite time of year when we were young. We would start planning our costumes when September came around, and school started. Everything was home-made! On Oct. 31, my dad would show scary movies in our carport. My kids STILL love Halloween!! Our traditional Halloween dinner is chili. I would cook it in the morning, because kids would line up outside my door in the afternoon to have their Halloween make-up done!

jasperandblue said...

great job. So nice the family were involved..... and Yum sorry I'm So late ....

Karen said...

What a Practical Magical party!! My wee girl keeps talking about wanting to be a scary witch for Halloween this year. I'm kind of in shock since she's always been a Disney Princess (of my choice as a babe, of her choice the last two years). No worries, I'll adjust. :>

The witch kisses, eyeball shakes, & mummy dogs look fun. And the costumes all had me smile!

Halloween is Hubby's fav holiday and I'd bet he'd love a Hallow's Eve party with our friends...thanks for the inspiration! :>

I hopped here from Holly's 504 Main, Tickled Pink and had great fun at your party! :>
