At work on Friday we had a pumpkin carving contest and “Autumn” is what my co-worker and I came up with.

Here are some of the reasons we decided to forego the traditionally carved pumpkin:
1. There is a lot of pressure to come up with an original carving design. This natural pumpkin idea came from google. Not hard at all.
2. Cutting a pumpkin with a knife is hard. Hot gluing acorns and gourds seemed much easier.
3. It’s messy to dig out the inside of a pumpkin. Sorry, co-workers, but I’m not willing to get messy at work for the sake of winning a contest.
4. We can label our pumpkin “made with all natural ingredients”.
5. Since the contest was on Friday and the pumpkins are hanging around till Tuesday, we know ours isn’t going to rot. Rotten pumpkins are stinky. And they attract flies too.

Here’s to hoping Autumn wins the contest!

Good food, Good people, Good job.

This is a picture of me and Kelly, my co-worker. She is a lot of fun and really helping me to learn the catering and party planning ropes. This was Friday’s event at The Ashton Depot. We hosted a luncheon for 500 and I couldn’t help but think that I really really like this job. Who can beat a job where you are surrounded by good food, fun people, and parties galore?
