Pumpkin Party: Part 1 November 14, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — Christine @ 6:33 pm

In what has become typical for our family we had two birthday celebrations for Miles, one on his actual birthday and one on a Saturday so that friends and family could attend. His theme went a little something like this; ‘Our little pumpkin is turning one!’ It was busy putting the party together but I loved the planning, prep and of course actual celebration with sweet Miles! I was lucky to have a team of helpers to get everything set up, thank you Mottram family!

Invites: I ordered the file from Dimple Prints and got them printed at a shop. I love this site!

Tables and Food: I got the kids tablecloth off of ebay and bought cheap fabric and trim for Grammy Chris to make the other tablecloths (thank you!!). The wall decor are paper rosettes which I learned how to make here. Auntie Heather made the pumpkin smash cake which Miles enjoyed, you’ll see how much in the next post. The cake pops and mini pies were inspired by Bakerella and the main dish was the simple and beloved hot dog along with some easy sides. All the pumpkin printables are from a site on Etsy.

Some Other Decorations:

Favors: A sweet friend found these awesome books and got them for me to hand out at the party, yep the book stars Miles! The kids also got some pumpkin candy, a pumpkin craft and a mini pumpkin to take home. Since there was pumpkin stuff everywhere this time of year it was easy to find goodies!

Keepsake: I put out a piece of scrapbook paper and wrote ‘Hopes & Dreams’ at the top for people to write a little message to Miles. I’ll be able to slide it right into his baby book which I made through I highly recommend the site, the digital scrapbook pages are beautiful!

The next post will show some actual people having fun at the party!
