Our annual tea party is about the gathering of women and takes place during tea time, the Sunday before Halloween. Many of us are professionals or also own businesses - - so it's good to take an afternoon off to relax and laugh. The strongest potion we drink is French bubbly and the only spell we concoct is taking the time to sit a "spell" eating, sipping, and laughing - - or after listening to a recording of us naturally laughing, perhaps it's more of a cackle.
As each woman steps into the room, it is a fashion show of the finest witchery. Regal hats, flowing gowns and capes, and even decorated brooms. There are good witches, story book witches, and even kitchen witches. The imagination flows.
