Witches Masquerade Ball Mantel

" You are cordially invited 
to attend this years Witches Masquerade Ball 
to begin promptly at the stroke of midnight 
on October 31 at the Witches Castle on the hill 
underneath the full moon"

"Please park your broom
in the Broomstick Parking Lot
and leave your bubbling cauldron
on the coffin buffet table"

So are you ready for a witches night out?! A lot of planning goes into a Witches Masquerade Ball... what oh what to wear. Will it be the spider covered hat or the skinny little black number? Will the cauldron casserole work or finger foods?

Welcome to the Witches Masquerade Ball Mantel! BEWARE!!! Picture overload ahead!

We settled on the spider hat with a little fir trim. Fashionable and witchy enough for any good witch.

 Seems to be some lunacy going on here!

Looks like one of our witchy friends mistaken the full moon as a hat stand!

We used a vintage moon picture from The Graphics Fairy to cover the face of our mantel clock..or did we?

                                                                                                  "Thank you Full Moon"!

We invited the black crows to the Witches Masquerade Ball too!

  He took over this spot as his early on.

Even young witches like to attend a good party! Thanks go to The Graphics Fairy.

Dancing by candle light. Easy to make with vinyl Cricut cutouts, moss and flame less candles.

Masquerade masks made up for the guests. Simple embellished store bought black masks layered with such things as, cupcake papers,scrap book embellishments, feathers, glitter and foam drink coasters.

Look, but please don't touch. One of the witches may have cast a spell of protection on one!

                            "BOO" Someone is watching you!

Little creatures that fly and crawl made themselves right at home.

Some witches needed a little reminder of where they were after a midnight flight in!

Love how all the pumpkins got the same Witches Masquerade Ball memo and visited Design Sponge to get their free masks!

One witch rode in on a cinnamon scented broom! Made the broom closet smell heavenly!

       Black and white pumpkins sitting in a row.

                                                                                                        Another black crow.

     We hope our Witches Masquerade Ball has inspired you to consider having your own Masquerade party this Halloween. You just never know who is going to show up! 

The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed.
Romans 8:19

  1. Your masquerade theme is clever! Did you make the broom too?

    1. Hi Ceci! Thank you so much for your nice comment! I found the broom at the grocery store of all places.

  2. Hello I am your latest follower! I LOVE your mantel. I was going for something similar last year but I never could get the whole masquerade thing together, but I think you'll really like my mantel too. I dressed up a vintage jewelry bust mannequin for a Halloween masquerade and put her on mantel with shabby chic inspired Halloween goodies. You can see it here:
    I am looking forward to exploring your blog a bit more!
