Everyone’s welcome to gather with the good witches of If The Broom Fits as we open to the realm of dark half of the year with a magickal afternoon of colorful costumes, food, drink, socializing, contests and prizes as well as an all-around revelry that can only be found at our Witches High Tea!
According to most practitioners of the Craft, all physical and spiritual matter—the spiritual essence, if you like—are made up of one or more elements.
Earth is the essence of fertility and solidarity; it nourishes, binds and gives form.
Air the essence of intelligence, which liberates and stimulates.
Fire is the essence of passion, strength and defense that animates and activates.
Water is the essence of emotions and fertility making things malleable and flexible.
Spirit, the celestial form sent by the Divine beings the “Goddess and God”, the 5th element is sometimes referred to as Akasha.
The qualities of any of these elements can be expressed through art, music, writing, religion, healing, magick and ritual. For 2017, this is exactly what we will do for the Witches High Tea . . . express ourselves through vibrant costumes designed around the elements for which we feel an affinity. In keeping with this theme, we will also include the moon and stars along with the sun. (You can’t have elements without the moon and sun.)
Costumes are encouraged. Be elaborate, be imaginative and be different. You don’t have to be a witch to attend. So delve deep into the genres of Fantasy, Medieval, Renaissance, Victorian, Faerie lore etc. within the many element(al) facets.
Now, SAVE THE DATE and put on your creative conical, grab your potions, crystal balls, brooms, familiars—whatever helps you—and get to work on your costume for If The Broom Fits, 2017 Witches High Tea.

At this year’s tea, If The Broom Fits will proudly serve PLUM DELUXE TEA.
Hand-blended in small batches at our studio in Portland, Oregon, Plum Deluxe’s line of signature loose leaf teas will help you to slow down for a mindful moment and enjoy the luxurious feeling of a cup of tea, perfect for a warm exchange with friends and family or a few quiet minutes of reflection in solitude. All of our tea blends are organic, non-GMO, and free of chemicals and sulfites; we support local and USA farmers wherever possible and run an active philanthropy program. Our company was founded by entrepreneur Andy Hayes as a tribute to his mother, who lost a brave 6-year battle with breast cancer but never forgot to enjoy “the little things” in life.
