Book Club: The Devil in the White City

Have you read The Devil in the White City? My book club read it this month and I thought it was great. Very interesting, especially if you're at all interested in history.

It was my turn to host this month, so I was in charge of the treats (can't have a book club without yummy food to eat, right?). Usually we try to make the treats have something to do with the book we read, if we can at all manage it (some are harder than others). This book lended itself perfectly to a fun food theme. Since the book is all about happenings at the 1893 Chicago World's Fair, of course I had to make some Fair Food!

Here's the spread.  It was a low-key affair, so no real decorations, but I did print out a few pictures of the fair to display on the table. 
I made homemade funnel cakes:
Gotta have some cotton candy!
And, watermelon:
Plus, we had some soft pretzels (not homemade, just SuperPretzels).

I did make some homemade CrackerJack, though.  And, I used these adorable labels from Tried and True. Love them!

It was a fun night of book discussion, and a lot of fun putting together all the fun fair food!
