Getting Ready for the Pumpkin Carving PartyAll day Friday we worked hard to decorate, setup, and get costumed for the big event. We had people dressed up as wrestlers, Minnie Mouse, someone ‘running late’, Holly Golightly, Spiderman, and more.
Everyone was definitely in the Halloween spirit and excited to get the party started.
The Pumpkin Carving Designs Were Boo-tifulWe had a range of pumpkin carving skills at the party – from beginners to advanced. And while we did provide stencils, some got really creative with their free hand carving.
Later in the evening we had a pumpkin carving contest, where we awarded the Scariest, Most Original, and Funniest pumpkin designs (winners in order below) with an award and goody bag.
Costumes Galore!One of the best things about the evening was all the costumes! Kids and parents both were dressed up in fun and interesting costumes. We saw Sherlock Holmes, the Incredibles Family, mermaids, Wednesday Adams, superheroes, unicorns, Peter Pan’s shadow, and so many more. Even some pets got in on the costume action!
We also held a costume contest for kids, pets, and adults, where we awarded the Scariest, Funniest, and Most Original costumes (for all three groups) with an award and goody bag. Peanut Butter and Jelly won the Funniest kids costume!
Photobooth Fun All Night LongIn addition to all the games, pumpkin carving, and contests, we also had a fantastic Halloween-themed photobooth. Guests had a great time posing for the camera with fun props in their costumes.
Good Food from The Wandering Moose and The Crazy WaffleLocal food trucks, The Wandering Moose and The Crazy Waffle, came out to celebrate Halloween with our team and guests. They cooked ups some delicious barbeque and dessert waffles.
Party go-ers loved the food 🙂
