We were ambitious this year and decided to host a pumpkin-carving party. For those of you who don’t know us very well, you should know that the most we ever do to welcome a guest is provide them with a solo cup of wine. But this year, we decided to go big, Martha Stewart big! Here are a couple of photos from our festivities.
We found a few creeps climbing up our wall.
Googly-eyed sangria cups – told you we went big.
‘Blood’ Sangria made with severed hands (aka frozen plastic gloves)
Don’t worry, we made treats too. These bacon-wrapped dates were crowd pleasers!
They went so fast we almost didn’t have time to take a picture of the final product!
The beginning of s’mores brownies. We definitively ate a significant amount of the toppings before they even went in the oven.
Apple pies…. in apples.
First prize went to the winking pumpkin.
Here all the recipes from our party:
