Mom has carved approximately 125 pumpkins over the last seven years. I did a post on her pumpkins from 2009, explaining that Mom uses the "carvable" foam pumpkins and Pumpkin Masters patterns.
The trick or treaters and neighbors look forward to the display each year. Our local TV station also features them. This year, she set them up in her three stall garage so the kiddos can visit and stay warm and dry! Halloween weather is very unpredictable in our area.
I was so distracted with all the fun happenings that I didn't take many photos of the food. Our menu consisted of:
Chicken Riggies with Joe's famous garlic bread
Pulled Pork with Dinosaur BBQ Sauce
Hummus, Stuffed grape leaves, and Greek olive platter
Orange and black torilla chips with warm cheese dip
Nutella cheesecake stuffed brownies
Frosted pumpkin cookies
Bourbon Slushies for the adults
Mom's buffet decorated for Halloween.
Mom carved all the pumpkins that are on display. Have you picked a favorite pumpkin yet? Mine is the owl, of course.
To those that know me well, you knew that my mom would carve an OWL pumpkin for me didn't you.
Thank you for stopping by! I am joining Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.
