A Bewitching Halloween Party

Beware the little black bunny in the witchy hat. She may look sweet and innocent, but don’t be fooled by that twitching nose and cutesy little tail, for the Countess…



and her fearsome sidekick, would happily have you for breakfast…



Together they rule with an iron paw from the lofty heights of their velvety castle, and every Halloween throw a spooktacularly creepy party where nothing is quite what it seems. Two human servants cater to their every whim, not least the Countess’s gruesome habit of bathing daily in carrot juice to keep her fur so beautifully soft and silky. Rumour has it she’s a rather distant cousin of Erzsébet Báthory.

Her lady-in-waiting has been working fiendishly hard this week preparing for the party and ‘tis feared she may have muddled her wheatgrass shots with absinthe. It’s not the first time this has happened and would certainly explain a thing or two!


And so without further ado, you are most welcome at this darkly enchanted Halloween party! Come and meet the other guests and help yourself to an array of magical nibbles – all unbaked for the undead…




The eye of newt pâté is really quite delicious washed down with a glass of the finest vintage venom…




Or maybe a cup of witches’ brew and a Green Goblin Cupcake will enchant your tastebuds?




The Brain Splatter Cupcakes are to die for…




Fancy a slice of the Rest in Torment Pie? It’s truly out of this world…




Thanks for stopping by our macabre Halloween Party! Please excuse the unruly behaviour of some of the guests…




They’re only allowed out once a year and like to live it up a little…

I had a nibble of a goblin cake - it was surprisingly tasty, I must encourage your other visitors to try some too. The goblins weren't happy though so I'd best dash....

I managed to stear clear of the countess and her temper whilst nibbling on a delicious goblin cupcake and sipping my glass of vintage venom. Thank you so much for the delightfully creepy party.

Perhaps when you've recovered from your revelry, you'd like to stop by and visit with me?
