My good friend and fellow designer at WSU, Joey, is getting married the weekend after Halloween. And she loves all things PUMPKIN. So, we had a pumpkin-themed wedding shower for her today at work.
We had pumpkin hummus, pumpkin spice cookies, hot apple cider and all things yummy & fall-like to eat. For table decorations, I decided to carve these "Funkins." They're fake, foam pumpkins that you can carve & keep. Forever. No mess. No pumpkin guts. No slippery accidents with sharp knives. No shriveling up and rotting. THEY ARE AWESOME! (I found these at Hobby Lobby, but I'm sure they carry them at Michaels too.) Genius invention.
Best wishes to the blushing bride...I mean Mrs. Fonkert!
