I love the look of fairy gardens, but usually they are filled with moss and plants that would just wither and die in this City of Sun. But I ran across this one from Garden Answer on YouTube that features a Halloween theme and uses succulents which are perfect. I can't wait to try it out. I need to hit the Dollar tree store for some small Halloween houses.
Once we finish all that crafting we will want to enjoy a tasty pumpkin flavored treat. I've been pinning recipes like crazy on Pinterest. I've found this pumpkin cake with a cinnamon glaze that I can't wait to try. It won't look as good, I'm sure. My last bunt cake had a decided slant to it, but it still tasted good.
We can't have cake without tea my current favorite right now is this one from CamilleLaLune on Etsy I love the taste but the name makes it the perfect tea for my Gothic Tea Party, Countess Bathory's Bathwater. You can see from the picture it's a lovely shade of blood red.
Call me old fashioned but I do believe in dressing for tea including elegant headwear. Okay, honestly I'll use any excuse to wear a tiara. :) I own a couple from one of my other favorite Etsy shops, EJPcreations. Perhaps a little something like this will be just the thing.
We've been on a vampire movie kick lately so we may indulge in one of our favorites, or
We shall carry on Halloweening despite the 100-degree weather!
