Pumpkin Crazy!

With fall in the air, it's the perfect time to add some pumpkins to your tailgate! Place some pumpkin crafts on your table, and serve some yummy pumpkin spiced treats!

Here's one of the dryer vent pumpkins I made. A Diamond in the Stuff has a great post on how to make these super easy pumpkins. They only cost about $4.00 to make!
Another easy trick is using a pumpkin as a flower pot. Just carve the inside of the pumpkin out, and place the flowers in the pumpkin. You can even leave your flowers in the plastic pot so you can reuse them after you're done with the pumpkin.
 Unfortunately the Grove does not have an open container policy, but you could always use this cute pumpkin ice bucket idea for your Watch Party at home!
 Add some mini pumpkins to your flower arrangement! This would be really cute with cotton stalks.
Paint some pumpkins! These Ole Miss pumpkins are adorable and perfect for the Grove.
I love these scarecrow/snowmen pumpkins! Be creative and turn one into Colonel Reb! 
 Carve out a pumpkin and use it as a serving dish. Perfect for chips or dip!
This fall Chex-Mix is a great snack for the Grove. Serve it in a cute cupcake liner!
These White Chocolate Pumpkin Blondies are amazing! I made them last year and fell in love. A little hint... and some more pumpkin spice to the recipe.
 Turn cinnamon or orange rolls into Jack-O-Lanterns for a morning game!
 Chocolate Dipped Pretzels decorated like pumpkins are another great treat to add to your tailgate. Here's a tutorial on how to make them.
 If you haven't tried these pumpkin spice kisses yet, you are missing out!! DO NOT MAKE THESE COOKIES WITH SUGAR COOKIE DOUGH! Trust me, after attempting multiple methods it was a disaster. Definitely something for
Follow this recipe from Picky Palate to ensure you're cookies turn out better than mine.
Have fun adding some pumpkin to your tailgate! Hotty Toddy!
