A Halloween Fascinator

Tomorrow, at 2:00 o'clock, I'm going to a 'Haunted High Tea' at the Whitney Restaurant in Detroit's most iconic mansion.  I'll be sure to tell you all about it.

I'm not into the 'dark' side of Halloween, but I wanted to participate in the fun by making myself a spider fascinator to wear to tomorrow's tea.

I don't think my creation would pass a milliner's inspection, but it's wearable.

The postman delivered a nice surprise in today's mail that I'm also sharing in this post - a handmade Halloween card and teabag from my most loyal blog reader.  Thanks, Joy!


  1. Adorable! I made a fascinator for my granddaughter for the tea party on my post. For her little head (and to make it stay on!) I started with a headband. It was a little more work than I had hoped. Yours is gorgeous.

  2. Oh that party sounds so fun and wonderful for Us Tea Party lovers.I love historic hotels that include tea time.Your blogging friend is a sweetheart -Hugs and blessings Denise

  3. Aww, I'm so glad it got there! And I'm glad you liked it, and flattered that you showed it on your blog! I had fun making cards. I wish someplace near me would have a Halloween tea! I'll look forward to seeing pictures of the one you attend, your spider fascinator is darling.

  4. Can't wait to see photos of the tea, and your fascinator.

  5. The tea at the Whitney was spooktacular and the food looks out of this world. Thank you for sharing your tea with us. Loved the directions for the fascinator. It was darling.
