{Happy Halloween} Pumpkin Party!

Happy Halloween! I hope you’re enjoying some sweet treats and pumpkin goodness today!

As with any holiday, I definitely most enjoy decorating and baking and getting friends together for a good time. And… Halloween is no different. I thought today would be fitting to post about the pumpkin party I had last week!

I invited my sweet friends over to decorate pumpkins and enjoy some pumpkin themed treats (decorating is WAY less messy than carving, and less smelly too). I went to Michael’s with mom when she was in town a few weekends ago, and we had super difficult time choosing which supplies to get- both of us in a craft store = creativity GALORE, and wanted to take the whole store home. We decided on sequins, glitter glue, ribbon, ribbon, ribbon, feathers, paints, googly eyes, ribbon and more ribbon!

Table set up for decorating

For treats, I made pumpkin shaped cut out cookies, pumpkin oatmeal spice cookies (the favorite by far), pumpkin cupcakes with pumpkin-spiced cream cheese frosting, and acorns. I also made apple cider with cinnamon sticks and snack mix with candy corn, of course! I tried to send leftover treats home with friends, but (unfortunately) was still stuck with a massive amount of sugary goodness, so have been munching on leftovers for a while…

Sweet Treats

It was such a fun way to celebrate fall and relax mid-week! The pumpkins turned out adorably…
