Pumpkin Carving Party

We hosted a BYOP (bring your own pumpkin) pumpkin carving party.  We sent bat shaped invitations with finger cut-out’s to double as finger puppets.  Moms & Dads were invited to bring their little ghouls and ride their broomsticks on over.

For decorations we wrapped Tootsie Pops with tissues, wrapped with a ribbon and tied to sticks I found in the yard.

Doughnut holes with fake spiders created a squeamish setting

Even super heroes like to carve pumpkins!

A bowl of fake teeth helped those who didn’t have a costume get into the spirit.

Guest were asked to ‘pick their poison.’  The bar was stocked with ‘bat juice’ (juice boxes) and ‘witches brew’ (spiked apple cider).  I wrapped juice boxes with white electrical tape and added eyes to turn them into ghosts.

A rare October snow storm moved the pumpkin carving indoors.  Drop clothes were put down to catch stray pumpkin guts.

…and then of course, to add to the spooky ambience the power went out just as the food was served.  Good timing!  Nothing spookier than a dozen hungry toddlers {shudder}.
