Spook-tober Potluck

Here at LILL HQ we host a monthly themed potluck to celebrate all the team member's birthdays that fall in that month. It also provides a fun way to gather and chat with each other and catch up with each other's lives. The birthday kids get to pick the theme and the rest of us bring the grub.

It was no surprise that our October babies chose a spooky Halloween theme for October's potluck. The spread consisted of delicious sweet bread that took on the shape of brains, mummy hot dogs, and pumpkin shaped PB&J sandwiches. There was also a nice sprinkle of fall foods such as spicy pumpkin bread, apple cider and an amazing apple pie.

Activities included guess how many candy corns are in the jar and a costume contest where team members brought in photos of costumes they wore in past Halloweens.

The candy corn guessing game was won by Bob H., LILL's photographer and brother to owner Jennifer Velarde (I think the "fix" was in).
The costume picture contest was won by Imelda F., LILL's Cutting Manager and Design Associate won with her picture of a her and her husband dressed in a horrific, gory costume.

Jack also made a special appearance as he also celebrates his birthday in October. He enjoyed a delicious cupcake while all the LILL folks sang Happy Birthday to him.

It was a great potluck and we all continued our day with full bellies and happy thoughts of what next month's potluck will bring.
