Fall Party

Here are some shots of the set up for my fall/pre-Halloween party. I made mini apple pies, pumpkin pie balls, chocolate covered cookie skulls, an orange and black cheese platter, pumpkin-cream cheese dip with gingersnaps, and chocolate caramel spider sandwiches. I tried to carve a pumpkin using that shading technique too. It was my first attempt at shading. The pumpkin doesn't exactly look like the picture, but I'm still happy with the results!

PS: Thanks again to Christine for snapping some shots of the actual party (whereas I got distracted by the food and decorations)!!

Aw we got your card and loved it! I am so jealous of your party- the cheese platter looks soooooooooo good. Chris and I carved pumpkins too (although yours is much fancier), but them our patio squirell kept eating them and we had to get rid of them last week.

Cara -
Your party looks amazing! I love that you had fall colored leaves :).
Everything looked soooo delicious. Wish I was there - you know how much I love pumpkin flavored things.
I think the spiders were the cutest food! Nice work!

ps - Thanks so much for the card! It made my day!
