Voor de eerste keer was de sfeer in ons huis om te snijden

I don't understand the use of om te in this sentence.
It doesn't seem like the sentence is trying to convey the idea of "in order to" as one might think.

What does it mean to say that iets is om te snijden?
Is this type of construction also used with other verbs or is it just a particularity of this expression?
