I ended up carving a kitty, and Matt carved a headless horseman. Here are all the pumpkins lined up after carving. Pretty amazing, huh?
while carving the pumpkins was super awesome, the hostess definitely out did herself with a sumptuous Oktoberfest themed menu! Look at how delicious everything looks.
Because I am a glutton for punishment and you just HAVE to see some close-ups, look at how detailed this party food is! There were chocolate mice (with licorice tails and almond eyes).
There were “Devil” eggs, with red bell pepper horns and scallion beards. (mmmm deviled eggs. I could eat this whole platter.)
There were black widow spider cupcakes, with cute little licorice legs:
My personal favorite, cat poop cookies:
And last but not least, a “bleeding heart” red velvet cheesecake dip. This was SO yummy but I had the good sense to try two little graham crackers of it and then stay far away, lest the hostess find me under the table at the end of the night with smears of dip around my face and unbuttoned jeans.
I actually did just fine with all of this delicious food, and allowed myself a little bit of everything, but kept in moderation. I’m determined to come back tomorrow with a rockin’ Thailand 20 result for you – and as yummy as everything was, I can’t go off-plan every time I see something delicious because that would be all the time. Have you gone to any Halloween parties yet? Were they as amazingly decorated and full of awesome treats like this one? Share!
