Pumpkin Carving Party
Even though the official first day of Fall is not until September 22, it certainly feels like autumn here in Maryland. The air here has been quite crisp, especially in the evenings. Fall is definitely my favorite time of year, and what better way to get the season started then by hosting a pumpkin carving party.
A lot of pumpkin carving parties are geared towards kids, but I love the idea of inviting over a small group of girlfriends to share in the activity. There's nothing better than conversation and creativity.
