Halloween: Pumpkin Carving & Talking Tables

It’s Halloween and what else is there to do but to eat sweets, carve pumpkins and watch scary movies – well there is trick or treating and going to a party, but that’s not us!

A while back when we attended the #BloggerPitP, we were kindly offered to collab with TalkingTables and from looking at their website and their products, we jumped at the chance as they had such a variety of ranges, we knew exactly which one we wanted. After a few exchanged emails, we received a massive box full of goodies, not only did we receive our original request (that is for another exciting future post) we also received these Halloween goodies and of course we had to have a plan of action to make good use of them!

To be honest, we’ve never really celebrated Halloween together in the past, so this gave us a real excuse to finally do something. We invited our friends Rochelle and Joseph over, along with my sister, Charlyn, to just have a chilled evening, carving pumpkins and watching scary movies.

Although, we didn’t end up watching any scary movies or even a Halloween movie, which worked out in Rochelle’s favour because she HATES scary movies. We did watch Harry Potter but sadly didn’t have time to finish.

Of course what is a Food & Baker gathering without food? Although we can’t say we were the ones who cooked, Rochelle kindly offered to prepare some homemade Katsu Curry, which Rochelle and I have made before, which you can find (here).

This may not be your typical Halloween dish, but it was so damn good and we were all stuffed by the end of it and not a chicken left in sight! At least the colours fit in with the theme 😉

As mentioned above, Talking Tables had kindly provided us with these amazing Halloween decor, although Halloween may be over now, you could always purchase these next year or if you’re one of those people who love to put these decorations up all year round, these are perfect! We’ll be keeping these for the following year, as the few days of use weren’t enough!

Find the links below to everything we had received. We hadn’t used some of the Party Porcelain items, but we won’t be putting them to waste, they’re just too pretty, we have more plans to come for them.

To end the night, we started on carving our pumpkins, this would be both James and Joseph’s first time carving pumpkins – you can imagine the excitement!

It was such a good evening with full stomachs, laughter and pumpkin mess!
