We called it “B.Y.O.P.” (Bring your own pumpkin)
Everyone brought a pumpkin to carve or paint.
I decided to bring a white pumpkin. I love the uniqueness about them.
They seem so charming to me.
Also, everyone brought their favorite pumpkin dish.
I brought mini cupcakes with homemade cream cheese frosting!
One of my favorite dishes was pumpkin dip.
My friend Loren was kind enough to share her recipe:
1 can of pumpkin
1 container of cool whip
1 pkg vanilla instant pudding
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
Y'all have to try it! It was sooo good!
The hostess, Jen, made a delicious taco soup for dinner.
We even had pumpkin beer y'all!
I loved the paper plates and napkins! (I think they came from Target).
After dinner we all went outside to decorate our pumpkins.
There may or may not have been a competition for best looking pumpkin...
...and I may or may not have won!
Sadly, all the pictures of me with my pumpkin turned out blurry...I didn't realize it until I got them on the computer.
Everyone did such a great job with their pumpkins.
I especially loved this one:
You cant go wrong with a classic jack-o-lantern!
For my prize winning pumpkin, I received this beautiful trophy:
Also, I got a Tyler candle (scented pumpkin of course) and the cutest pumpkin coasters!
It was such a fun evening!
What about you? Are you participating in any festive activities this fall?
