Come To Our Party!

Come to our party, come along please.
We won’t even eat you, just give you a squeeze.


We don’t want to get you, or scare you or worse.
We only want you to help us rehearse


The lines we should use when asking for treats,
And how we should speak through our masks and our sheets.

You can bob for an apple, or run from a wolf, help a witch cast her spell, or stroke a giant moth.


But whatever you do, don’t turn your back, on the ghosties and ghoulies who follow your track, and don’t leave the path, or go down the dark stairs, as these are the things that catch fools unaware. Just stay in the light and hurry home soon, quick before wolf realises it’s a full moon!




I hope you enjoyed our party and didn't get too scared. If you would like a scary halloween book to read click here (a children's book I hasten to add!-which partly inspired my party)
We are all off to visit Vanessa here for her party at A Fanciful Twist. Please come along with us-we promise you will come to no harm!

I'm not sure why, but your party made me thing of Neil Gaiman's THE GRAVEYARD BOOK.

How sweet and clever!

When you get back on your broomstick swing by my blog - I'm serving brain tonic and three witches brew. Mildred the spider will give you a ride to the river where you can pick up a boat that will take you on one magical adventure.

Have fun visiting all of the parties today.

Laume said...

It's come down to this, bumping into each other during holiday parties - LOL. I'm so bad about keeping up the blog these days. It's that Facebook, instant gratification. And lots of busyness in real life. But so nice to say hi - HI! Your doll cutouts are incredibly clever!!! I didn't get added to the sidebar of participants in time, but please stop by to see the post I managed to put up last night. :) http://beachtreasure.blogspot.com/2011/10/halloween-party-post-harvest-tea-party.html
