Come sit with me for awhile and see what I’m bringing to the table…

Oh my. Did you all really believe Griszelda, aka “The Feisty Witch of the East,”was planning on playing nicely along side of Witch Happy aka “The Contented Witch of theWest?”

Ooooo . . . before you all get toooo comfy with that assumption, let me introduce you to Matilda, “The Wickedest Witch of the North” as seen in the first photo. 

No you didn’t misread her title. Matilda is a force to be reckoned with, before the party gets started, during and even after the guest have safely made it through Halloween night unscathed. Trust me when I tell you that Wicked Witch Matilda makes Griszelda look like an angel, Do you see that list in her hand? That’s her scary list of witches’ tricks that she brings with her all the way from the North.

To keep her under control I let her greet guests with a trick or two, followed by that crazy laugh of hers. That’s when I move my guests over to Griszelda’s witch’s brew station. One of her special brews takes the scary right out of them. What can I say?

Here, there, and everywhere tasty treats abound. Now I cannot close without a warm mention of “The Witch of Sweetness,” seen in the second photo, stationed at one of the many places set to grab a plate and enjoy some of my special edible morsels. Yes, yes — I only use black plates with a pop of lime green napkins, set on black linens and netting. I think the only question left is will it be trick or treat or Happy Halloween at my house?
