“You are led through your lifetime by the inner learning creature, the playful spiritual being that is your real self.
Don't turn away from possible futures before you're certain you don't have anything to learn from them.”

Witches Tea Party ~ Under a Halloween Moon

Welcome to a Witch's Tea Party under a Halloween Moon here at Marigold Manor! I'd like to thank our hostess for this fabulous blog party, Anna at 'Frosted Petunias' for all the hard work she puts in to create something beautiful for us all to share!

Now please come in . . . don't hesitate . . . the tea's all brewed and waiting on you!

Ma cherie Mademoiselle, it is with deepest pride
and greatest pleasure that I welcome you tonight.
And now I invite you to relax, let me pull up a
chair as I proudly present - your tea!

Be my guest! Be my guest!
Put my service to the test!
Tie your napkin 'round your neck, cherie
And I'll provide the rest.

One lump, or two, perhaps even three!
Why, I only live to serve you,
of this you can be sure of!
Try the cake now, it's delicious!

Don't believe me? Ask the dishes
They can sing, they can dance
After all, Miss, they're enchanted
And a tea here is never second best.

Go on, unfold your napkin,
take a glance and then you'll . . .
Be my guest
Oui, my guest
Be my guest!

I'll prepare and serve with flair
A culinary cabaret!
You're alone,
and you're scared,
but the tea has been all prepared!
No one's gloomy or complaining
while the flatware's entertaining!

I'll tell jokes! I'll do tricks
with my fellow candlesticks,
and it's all in perfect taste
of that you can be sure of.
Come on and lift your glass!
You've won your own free pass
To be my guest!

Be my guest! Be my guest!
Get your worries off your chest.
How could anyone be gloomy and depressed?
I'll make you shout "encore!"
And send me out for more,
So, be my guest!

While the cups do their soft-shoein'
I'll be bubbling, I'll be brewing
I'll get warm, piping hot . . .
Heaven's sakes! Is that a spot?
Clean it up! I want the company to be impressed!

Life is so unnerving
For a Witch who is not serving
She's not whole without a soul to wait upon
Ah, those good old days when we were useful...

Be my guest! Be my guest!
My command is your request
It's been years since anybody's been here
And I'm obsessed
with your tea, with your ease,
Yes, indeed, I aim to please!

While the candlelight's still glowing,
let me help you, I'll keep going
cup by cup, one by one
'Til you shout, "Enough! I'm done!"

Then I'll sing you off to sleep as you digest.
Tonight you'll prop your feet up.
But for now, let's eat up!

Thank you so much for stopping by today . . . I do hope you enjoyed your visit!
