Pumpkin Carving Party

Can you believe we are just 9 days away from Halloween?! Matt and I picked up our costumes over the weekend and I am so excited about them. So in the spirit of Halloween, I have some pictures from the pumpkin carving party we attended last week!

L-R: 1. My go-to fall party appetizer – Pumpkin Dip! 2. Cute banner 3. Carving tools 4. Pumpkin carving in process 5. Our pumpkin!

{The Finalists!}

The WINNER! Is this not the cutest pumpkin ever?!

What are you doing for Halloween this year? And what are you dressing up as?!

    Wow, I still can't get over how amazing some people carve pumpkins. I wish I had a costume or that I was dressing up this year. I don't think I will be. :(Maybe next year.
