SOMETHING WICKED (COOL) THIS WAY COMES...
It won't come as much of a surprise to hear that I love planning/producing Events! From booking bands when I owned a bar, to hosting an annual Medieval party for 20 years, to Witches Teas, Psychic Soirees, and countless retreats, I can genuinely say I like putting on a 'good time'. With that in mind, I set out this year to create a Magical Halloween Ball combining two of the things I love most Magic & Glamour!
STACKING THE MAGICAL DECK...
I often talk about how magic becomes more potent when we 'stack the deck', which simply means that the steps and components we use in our magical working add up,
The more thought we put into our magic the more powerful it will be!
Magic begins the moment we start thinking about it, it is present in the seed of inspiration that pokes at our dreams and is present when we begin preparation for our work; collecting components, and planning the ceremony. In group work; such as a magical Witches Ball, this preparatory lead-up is helpful, as it gets the participants flowing in the same mindset before the formal work begins.
Think of it like Christmas...one of the best things about Christmas is preparing for the big festivities! From putting up decorations to making cookies, each step helps us to become more aligned with the anticipated moment, and sharing that anticipation with others makes it all more magical! With this in mind, I have really put effort into the other bits that will help make the night all the more enchanting!
The Magic begins when your ticket arrives!
Knowing the power of anticipation
I loaded this event with goodness and glamour; starting with the arrival of your ticket, which comes with a Glamour Spell, to help you embrace your most enchanting self the night of the Ball.
Along with your ticket & glamour spell, you will be put into an email list for updates on the event, and suggestions for making it a night of potent magic and play!

THE FAIRBANKS MANSION
THE VENUE...I personally have been preparing for this magical event since February when I rented The Fairbanks Mansion; now home to the St. Johnsbury, VT Elks Club. This building is a hidden gem, filled with ornate woodwork and a bit of spooky charm. Walking through the building, I knew this was the place...it was old enough, held secrets (I am sure), and was located just a few miles from the highway; on Interstate 91 between Boston & Quebec, making it perfect for locals and not so local Witches to fly on in...
Using the Elks Club also meant....a bar & bartenders were provided!
*Full Cash Bar
*ATM on premises
*Ample Dance Floor
*Psychic Readers, Energy Workers, and Vendors upstairs
*Upstairs Lounge for conversation and storytelling games
*Outdoor Smoking Area
MAGIC to make your experience more enchanting!
In preparation for the WITCHES BALL, I collaborated with other crafty- witches to create enchanted items to enhance the glamour and magic of the evening, and beyond...

WITCHES BALL MERCH...
T-shirts and Travel Mugs
T-shirts and coffee mugs to remember the Magic, designed by the one and only V...
Knowing that we come in a variety of shapes and sizes, I opted for personalized T-shirts over buying a whole bunch and hoping people could get what they wanted. Which means you can order yours the way you like it. Two different styles of T-shirt, two colors, many sizes, delivered to your mailbox. And...Yes! You can order a T-shirt even if you can't make it to the party.
I'VE EVEN ARRANGED A PLACE FOR YOU TO STAY
The Comfort Inn
St. Johnsbury, VT
When your ticket is secured you will be emailed a link to The Comfort Inn & Suites in St. Johnsbury, VT. I have arranged for guests of THE WITCHES BALL to get a discount on rooms. The Inn is only 5 minutes from The Fairbanks Mansion (Home of the St. Johnsbury, Elks Club). As we get closer to the Ball I will email guest a list of cafes, restaurants, and cannabis shops in the area!
SEANCE FRIDAY NIGHT
ENCHANTING THE KINGDOM SPIRIT GALLERY

Why not make it a weekend? Stay at the Comfort Inn, attend a Spirit Gallery on Friday Night, explore the town on Saturday afternoon, and put on your glamour for the Ball, on Saturday Evening. Spirit Galleries with Salicrow are intimate, detailed, and filled with Spirit!
I do hope you can join us for this magical evening...
