I always keep the guest count small. It's easier to carve pumpkins when you have a small group of people. I only invite 4-5 friends. We watch a Halloween movie, eat lunch, enjoy some treats and carve up some pumpkins. This years movie choice took us back to our Jr high school days, Children of the Corn. We always pick a movie that we've all seen so we're watching but not WAtching, if you know what I mean.

Pumpkin Oreo's, Trader Joe's Jo-Jo's and Caramel Apple Oreo's. The pumpkin spice Oreo's are good. Nice mild flavor. I bought the Jo-Jo's on a recommendation from a friend. However I didn't care for them. I'm not a chocolate cookie fan. The caramel apple Oreo's were a hit with my friends.
I displayed the Mingle magazine issue my party was featured in and then forgot to brag ;) to my friends about it. What was I thinking! Cake pops in the photo by 4 Kids Cakes.
Low key again, no baking here. Trader Joe's pumpkin macarons. I drew the faces on with edible ink. Note-when drawing faces on these macarons you want a light touch or they crack. As you can see.
Party favors! Recognize those coffins and pumpkins? Pumpkins by Danielle's Sweet Side , coffin box's from Michaels
Wilton coffin baking box's, added the Wilton zombie hand and crushed up Trader Joe's Jo-Jo's to make the dirt.
Where's the pictures of the pumpkins we carved you ask? well, we had so much fun laughing, talking, eating good food and watching cheesy old Halloween movies, I forgot to take pictures of the carved pumpkins. Now that's a sign of a good party.
