I thought I would share some of the pictures from our recent Annual Pumpkin Dinner!! We always have a lot fun and I start planning months in advance and start making the goodie bags for everyone.  I try to make something new and fun every year.  This year I found some cute little orange baskets at Joann’s and thought they would be prefect for this year’s dinner.  They turned out a little harder to make then I thought they would be cause I had to actually sew the faces on because I couldn’t get them to stay no matter what glue I used.
I used my Cricut to cut out the leaf and then embossed it using my Cuttlebug.  I used green pipe cleaners for the stems and wrapped them around the handle.  And everyone got a bag of their favorite candies.
Here is the table setting for the night.  Still love the pumpkin soup tureen that I got last year.  This year I bought new black and orange dishes for the night.  And added gummy eyeballs to everyone’s bowl as a trick!!!

After a fun night of pumpkin carving, we finished the night with these yummy cream puffs that I can’t take any of the credit for.  One of our “kids” made them for us – and always Jeff did a great job!!  They were as yummy as they look!
And here is the finished product from the night.
