Witchy Night

Last Wednesday, October 13, was Bunco night at my house and the Bunco witches were revving up their broomsticks to descend upon my spooked up home.

 There were cauldrons full of treats awaiting them and a table dressed in black, white and orange.
 A place was set for each of them to enjoy a feast before playing. The house would soon be filled with the raucous cackles of the twelve.
 Night fell and the broomsticks were parked one by one at the door. The candles were lit as the evening festivities began.
 It is always a wild time when the coven convenes to play together. This night was no exception.
I would show more but then I would have to kill you because the unwritten rule is what happens at Bunco stays at Bunco.

Have a Terrifyingly Terrific Thursday, P.

P.S. No, they won't be angry at being called Bunco witches, we usually go by another name... I am sure you can figure that one out!

Pam, I'd love for you to link up this post with Vintage Inspiration Friday next week, because this table setting is just what I'm featuring with my theme of a Fall/Halloween table. Hope to see you there!

Love all your Halloween decor. Especially the tea lights in the milk glass...who would think that would look so ghostly. I bet your bunco friends thought it was super spooky and pretty.

Love your Halloween playlist on your blog too. I usually turn the sound off when viewing other's blogs because I either have the tv going or my own music when I am browsing but had the sound on and your music came up and Loved it. Especially "This is Halloween" because I love that movie and song soooo much. Love that version of it too.

Kathy said...

I love your whole post from the music to the photos -What a good time everyone must have :')
