My only source of guidance (besides Jen's fabulous Fall Fests in the past) for this party has been Pinterest. It pretty much fulfills all my party needs. Decor, food, drinks etc. If you're not aware of Pinterest I highly recommend it and if you get an invite or get accepted to the club be warned it will be too much fun to click away from. That place is awesome!
I've made a Fall Fest 2011 board here and it pretty much sums up what I want out of hosting this party. Check out these screen shots for the overall yumminess.
|weird how that photo on the middle right looks like chili mac and cheese...|
it's not. It's spiced pumpkin seeds (dramatically).
I'm thinking about making a crock pot of chili for the really hungry eaters. With homemade cornbread! What about having soup in a carved out pumpkin? Or put ice and chill drinks in a pumpkin? Oh the possibilities!
ps. If you need an invite just email me!
