Well, by now, if you’ve been following along at least, you know we had a Chili Bar for this year’s Pumpkin Party. And I’m sure you are SO over hearing about our PP, but a chili bar comes in handy for the both the Autumn and Winter seasons, I swear! So I’m showing you the how-to, just in case you want to do a Fall Cook-Out, Chili Contest, Football Party or any other get-together that might benefit from a super fun Chili Bar! And I promise, I won’t mention the P-word again until next year, OK? 😉
SO, for our Chili Bar, we started with a sign highlighting the fixins’. We had hot dogs, buns, corn bread, tortilla chips, shredded cheese, sour cream, chopped onion, crackers, jalapenos, chopped tomatoes, Fritos, mustard and ketchup. Of course we had a giant roaster of the famous Weaver Chili (thanks, Mom and Dad!), and a crock pot full of vegetarian chili courtesy of Joe’s sister. We put the hot dogs in a warming tray with water and let them heat up a few hours before the party.
my sister helped me make this awesome sign with a board I picked up from H4H, scrapbooking paper and stickers, a paint pen, stencil, and mini clothespins attached with hot glue
before we added and opened the food (and removed the treat table candies-don’t mind those!)

It figures that I don’t have a picture of the Chili Bar before it was mauled by hungry party guests. But you get the idea, right?
