With my limited pumpkin carving knowledge I took to Pinterest for hosting ideas. Thank goodness for Pinterest. How did I ever function without it? After hours of pin-surfing, I decided to keep our party simple. Originally I wanted to make a group trip to a pumpkin patch so we could all pick out our own perfect pumpkins - but we were unable to coordinate schedules. So I opted to visit our local flower market and turn our tiny apartment into a pumpkin patch.
Steve and I obviously got first dibs on the pumpkins and let our guests pick theirs on their way in. I did buy one extra pumpkin - just in case. And of course picked up some flowers - because a party isn't a party without gerbera daises. Aren't they the prettiest? Definitely a personal favourite.
Once the pumpkins were selected the pumpkin carving festivities began. To be honest this was probably the best party I had ever been to. Seriously - why had I put off carving pumpkins all those years? Seriously, look how much fun everyone was having.
|Even Basil was having a blast.|
|Steve was super impressed that I made everyone do this - but they will be thankful I did.|
|If you haven't noticed Steve hates getting his picture taken so we usually end up with this.|
