~throw a pumpkin carving party~

What fun!
Cody had 7 of his best friends over last week after school
and they all carved pumpkins.
It was a blast, we will definitely be doing it again
next year!
While they were at school I transformed a area in our back
yard into a spooky Halloween area.

The invitations went out a couple weeks before:

I put together little Halloween buckets for each of the kids, using mostly items from the dollar
spot at Target.

And here is way too many pictures of the decor:

The striped straws, orange, white, and black tissue paper balls, and felt banner all came from Target.
The glitter skull candle holders, the large crow, and the pumpkin garland came from Pottery Barn and Pottery barn kids.
The bone pieces and rats came from the Dollar Tree, as well as the labels on the orange pop.
The candy corn cake tutorial can be found here.

Ready to see all the kids in action?

That last photo is what happens when you ask the kids to all line up with their
pumpkins for a photo. Ha!

Besides the candy corn cake, I served peach and apple cobbler, hot apple cider, cinnamon applesauce and plenty of orange soda.

And, for the adults.....

With all of those seeds left over, I made these.

I hope this inspires you to throw your own pumpkin carving party!
This would be a really fun "adults only" costume party too!
Tweaked a bit of course!
