Last night I threw my second annual Halloween Dinner Party :)




Pumpkin carving table


The dinner table. This year I decided to go for a more warm autumny vibe.




Place cards were made from leaves put under clear plates.






I made caramel apple cocktails for guests to drink while pumpkin carving (ignore the ugly tray)


My guests (minus my mom and aunt)




Treat bags filled with homemade cookies and lollipops


Carving :)






Candlelit pathway to backyard


Another shot of treatbags








Cocktails!


We put a fire on to warm everyone up




Carving in twilight

Cool picture I took by mistake


Appetizer: Spinach salad with mustard vinaigrette dressing, orange and yellow peppers, cuts of bacon, and raisins




Eating


Entree: Penne pasta with pumpkin sauce and sweet Italian turkey sausage


Sitting by the fire. I love this picture.


Dessert: Boston "Scream" Pie (Courtesy of Martha Stewart)
