Last night was our 2nd annual pumpkin carving party.  Here are a few pictures I snapped while I prepared everything. 


Since we’ve had a house guest for the last week and a half, the day of the party was a busy one.  I completed all of the preparations that day, from the cooking to the cleaning.  (I don’t recommend trying it!)  The kitchen was overflowing with supplies.
But, they were all used by the end of the day. 

Each family gets a carving kit, including a bowl for the seeds, carving tools, wipes, a sharpie, and a candle. 


This year we set up one table for the food and another table for appetizers, which we placed near the grill so the chef could mingle, too.  The remaining tables were used for both eating and carving. 

Casual Appetizers: Cayenne Cheese Spread and Crackers, Stuffed Jalapenos, Sausage Mummies, Cheese, Vegetables/Dip. 


The pumpkin station included sticky notes so guests could select their pumpkins as they arrived.  The kids loved picking out the pumpkins!

See you next year!
