The second annual Harvest Party was so much fun ~ a day of dear friends, crazy good food, adorable kids crafting, and yes, even adult pumpkin relay races. For the relay race we teamed women against men, the men winning by a landslide - darn those well-balanced men. I had a craft table set up on the porch for all the kids, lots of stickers and harvest-coloring projects. The food, oh the food: potatoes gratin, baked mac 'n cheese with prosciutto, lasagna w/ bechemel sauce, blue cheese stuffed dates, spinach salad, frosted pumpkin cookies, caramel apples - the list goes on and on. I am still full two days later. The decor: I made branches hanging with leaves to hang over the burlap covered tables, vases of sunflowers and wheat placed around the house, and pretty harvest corn draped around the front door. I'm thrilled to have this Fall tradition, it really doesn't get any better.
