BY ORDER OF THE LOCAL WITCHES #25 , LUNCH IS SERVED!
Good day everyone, the air is thick and the scent of witches dark spells are the setting for the annual witch luncheon. Have a seat if you dare! Webs are being spun, the special witches brew is brewing and spiders are lurking along with some other creepy guests.......
I finally received my Spooky Halloween dishes from Country Door and I am so happy with them ! Today the witches will be the first to dine with them .
The crystal is waiting to be filled with a bloody glass of wine.
Spiders with fur will scan the tables before they are used for a potion!
I took an old wine bottle , painted and distressed it and tied a little raffia on it.
A pickle jar was turned into a mummy using white torn sheet material and some light brown paint. Add eyes and you have a cute recycled decoration.
For a mere 20.00 these dishes are well worth it I'm sure every witch will agree.
This table and chairs is in our lodge/ screened in Lanai. A well lived place where you can relax on the sofa and chairs and enjoy a cool drink or enjoy dinner by candlelight or even watch a movie at midnight seeing it also has TV. The water is just across the street for some boating and fishing no swimming though way too many big gators for that. The laundry room is actually off of the lanai and it has a fridge and a sink with running water so the teens here at Sweet Tea N' Salty Air take full advantage of this room. It is not uncommon to see a big stash of fishing poles leaning in the corners of the room. It's quite large and serves as extra dining on the holidays. The table seats 6 , last thanks giving the air was cool and many diners sat around this table enjoying the food and candlelight.
The witches will be sure not to miss any important calls!
These cute little string of ghosts are strung from one chair to another , that was a $ store find.
You can use some spider webbing also from the $ store to create some realistic smoking look. The spiders are also $ store.
Scary hands attached to the plate stand will creep out all the guests.
Doing a table scape for Halloween is so much fun, I have to tell you a really funny story... A few years ago when I came back to Florida my daughter and I decided we would do a spooky table out in the covered porch for Halloween so we started early in the day it looked really cool . We wanted to put some realistic tone to it so we took strawberry syrup the kind you can mix with milk and did all the rims of the glasses to look like real blood . So when we done e went in to eat lunch. When we came back out about an hour later the whole table setting was covered with bees .. we laughed so hard but we finally got rid of them before the trick or treaters came.
Welcome everyone! It's finally Christmas here at Sweet Tea N' Salty Air, a time for rejoice, and happiness to share with family and friends! Traditions are also kept such as here every Christmas morning I make homemade cinnamon buns a sweet doe recipe from my late gram. Well what are you waiting for come on in!
Welcome...hope I find everyone enjoying everything Fall has to offer...as I see it I think that it may be everyones very favorite season. Here in Florida we have no changing leaves or Acorns but we do have some magnificent pinecones and a recent discovery of The Florida paper tree. My daughter and her friends went to the woods to gather some wood for the outdoor fire pit and as I was passing the wagon of cut logs I noticed they resembled birch tree a bit so I went and checked it out better. One of the logs was peeling apart oh I thought this is very cool so I grabbed a few logs and brought them on in the house I peeled one apart.
I thought I would try a couple of things first I covered a old floor board entirely. I used wood glue.
So I crafted this lodge sign just using some stencils and paint and attached these two?, sorry they look like a type of pine cone they were interesting so I gathered some.
Then I thought I would peel off some big enough pieces to wrap around just a typica…
Hello there......looking for a wonderful inexpensive Holiday Craft?? I have just the thing to gather the whole family around the table, serve a little hot cocoa and some cookies and it's a party! This is all you will need to get this party started......
Some basic white paper, scissors, glitter and some glue. The glue you will want to paint the finished snowflakes with but we did add a little water to it. I am so a magazine saver, this is an old one "Martha Stewart Kids", If you follow the numbered steps and besure to get a good fold the results areendless.
It is true no two snowflakes are a like! Once you get a "shovel" full its time to bring them to the glitter box, just a shallow box to sprinkle glitter, before that just a couple brushes of glue which we did in a different box then the glitter.
This is just one cut but once you follow steps 1-5 you can make your own cuts !
Little miss smarty pants which is my oldest daughter decided to show off with he…
