At this Bewitching Boho Tea Party guests were invited to pull up a pillow, select their brew of choice and indulge in some spooktacular tea treats! Tea parties are perfect for anytime of day, for guests of all ages and can be customized to fit any seasonal party theme, even Halloween! Decorations included boho wooden accents, dried florals, pumpkins and printables by Pixels And Pop in a palette of neutrals with black and purple accents.

What People Drank
Tea was served in cauldron mugs with DIY rock candy broom stir sticks. Elegant purple geode menu cards, gold cloth napkins, white moroccan plates and natural palm leaf chargers were placed at each seat on top of a black mesh tablecloth. A white teapot of hot water sat upon a decorative wooden charger in the middle of the table next to a spell book box containing an array of different teas for guests to choose from. A cauldron vase filled with dried florals, some of which I spray painted, made for an enchanting centerpiece.
The sweet treats included coconut macaroons, maple cookies, vanilla bean scones and french macaroons, some of which I served peeking out of more spell book boxes. Ghost-berry Jam was served in a small cauldron as an optional addition to the scones. I used an edible marker to decorate the french macaroons and added candy eyes onto the scones with frosting for another fun and spooky touch!
A spooktacular time was had by all against a fireplace backdrop of magical apothecary containers and candles. Each guest took some hocus pocus home with them in the form of a string of decorative witchy beads gifted in a cauldron
