Pumpkin Carving Party

It was such a fun morning hosting our first pumpkin carving party! We had Joel's 10U Avalanche softball team over. We chose morning so the girls would be bright eyed and ready to get creative and so the families could still enjoy their afternoon together!)  

We woke up late but I think our decorations were still pretty cute. 
Paper lanterns make everything a little cuter and more festive!
We made a fall mix using candy corn, pretzels, Reese pieces, and some orange and purple marshmallow popcorn and pumpkin shaped potato puffs... All from Target. We put them in clear treat bags and tied them with green tulle to make it look like pumpkin and leaves!
Colorful pirate eye patches and vampire fangs were a hit!
Ghost pops = easy adorable treat for cheap! It's a PEEP!!! Simply push a ghost peep on a sucker stick and voila!
Disposable table cloths are a must! This makes for easy, quick clean up!
Spider Cider was a smash! So delicious! We mixed 2 gallons of apple cider, 1 large can of pineapple juice and 5 cinnamon sticks. Warm on stove and and serve in a spider punch bowl... What else?!
Get your coach to scoop out all your gunk. That's an obvious. 
And the finished products with their creative artists! I loved seeing all the girls get to know each other a little bit better. They already have the sweetest friendships... We can't wait to keep them growing those relationships. 
Happy Pumpkin Carving Party!!!
