The witching hour is said to be the time of night when supernatural  beings — witches, ghosts and the like — are most active. I’m planning to celebrate the year’s most powerful witching hour — Halloween night — by setting the table with these diminutive brooms.

Witch's Broom Place Cards

The best part? I can, ahem, conjure up these mini flying machines from things I already have on hand: raffia, twigs and brown paper bags.  To make, just cut and affix raffia to the twigs, cut the paper name tags and write in your best spooky script (preferably in blood-red ink.)

Raffia and Twigs

Use them with a  fall-themed table setting, or play up the creepy factor with a witch-themed tablescape, complete with potion-ready apothecary jars and “poison” apples.

Send the brooms home with guests as a favor, or reuse the leftovers for a Hogwarts-themed bash.

      Yes, I'm dying to have a Harry Potter party. If you do, I'd love to snag an invite to the post-feast quidditch match. ;-)
