Blue Diamond Lunch Turns Spooky

Most of you know that Gma Beth hostesses a luncheon every month for the ladies in our ward who are 60 or older. She has lots of fun putting on the lunches, and everyone has a great time. Today she hosted yet another lunch, this time with a halloween theme. I had been enjoying looking at everyone's clever ideas on Pinterest, and we took some ideas from there to incorporate into the lunch.
I made witches' hats (Keebler cookies with Hershey kisses stuck on with frosting).
Mom made the owl face cupcakes.
I made the mummy juice boxes.
And for the main course we had homemade pizza - three kinds: pepperoni; Hawaiian; and this one with sausage, pepperoni, bell peppers, and heirloom tomatoes. The green things you see are called Aunt Ruby's German Cherry. They are a ripe green tomato, and oh so sweet.

For entertainment, Robin Shirts showed us a poster of Edvard Munch's "The Scream" and told us about him and this particular painting. She makes every art work interesting. It seemed the perfect painting for our halloween theme. It was fun to hear the halloween related stories the sisters shared from their lives. This luncheon is one of the highlights of each month for me.
