Kids Pumpkin Carving Party

I had some doubts once I started (along with my wonderful BCF, Jamie) gutting 22 pumpkins, but… The kids pumpkin carving party was a SUCCES! Of course it had to rain on this one day in October. But what party goes off without any problems? Hell, I had two groomsmen show up to our wedding wearing the wrong colored vest and cummerbunds. If I can handle that on one of the most important days of my life, then I can handle a rain storm during a kids party. :)

As for the food, which I’m still super bummed I didn’t get pictures of, we served: bloody worms (pulled pork), scrambled brains (macaroni salad), scary ghosts (pb&j’s), skeleton bones (veggie tray), and goblin eyes (fruit salad). For dessert there was a graveyard cake and cupcakes. And to drink we had Swamp Juice (lime and lemon concentrate w/sprite and sherbet ice cream), Blood Punch (cranberry juice and club soda w/floating orange slices), and “Holy” Water (something i need to drink more of).

Can’t wait till next year!!


  1. That looks like SO much fun! Seriously =) I'd love to host something like that... except... I have no idea how to carve pumpkins *hides*

    I can cook a four course meal in less then two hours and can't carve a pumpkin! =)

  2. Haha. That's why we used stickers to trace around! :)
