It’s that time of year again when we start stirring things up and getting ready for what will be the 2019 Witches High Tea! And the first to be held in our new, bigger, better, brighter location! We’re very excited to announce that Amy Blackthorn will be my cohost and presenter this year, and just in time as her new book, Sacred Smoke, is released on October 1st! We’re all ready familiar with her prior publication Blackthorn’s Botanical Magic. 

This years event will feature two classes and the High Tea. There will be a class featured on a topic from each book. One on Saturday evening, and then the High Tea on Sunday afternoon followed by the second class. See below for specific dates and times.

The High Tea is a full out spread of delicious food and fantastic teas presented upon vintage china and real silver, with vintage embroidered napkins...because I’m a Libra and well, you've all seen my shop...I like things to be useful AND pretty! Everyone comes dressed in their Witchy best (full regalia) and wonderful prizes are awarded for Best Witch Hat and Best Broom! Each guest also receives a special Door Prize from me just for attending! You’ll meet new friends, connect with old ones and have plenty of time to mix and mingle all within the setting of The Holy Rose! 

Now here’s the hard part...only 40 tickets will be sold. That’s ten more than last year due to our larger space, but we sell out quickly every year. So don’t wait! We try to keep it a small and intimate event to make it more personal and special. We have cut it back to a two day event this year to simplify things and are only offering one package that includes the entire event. 

This year is going to be extra special as I said it’s the first event in our new space! So I’m pulling out all the stops. This is going to be so good! We look forward to seeing you there!!!
