This year was no exception! We served pumpkin pie croissants and pumpkin cupcakes...and we gave out pumpkin cookie party favors. Everything was orange and yummy! I got all the paper goods and cookie packaging supplies from the dollar bins at Target when I went with my friend Kara a few weeks ago. I love a good deal and they always have such cute things in those bins!
The boys and their friends had a blast decorating their pumpkins with paint, glitter, buttons and stickers!
They also enjoyed games of pumpkin ring toss and pumpkin bowling!
And of course a game of baseball broke out! You can't tell from the picture because Big A had just mowed, but we actually have a baseball field mowed into the grass in our front yard...we play lots of baseball around here!
I wanted to get a picture of all the kiddos with their decorated pumpkins, but I thought that might be pushing my luck! :) I did get a picture of Little A and Little E's finished pumpkins!
Pretty creative! I think I have a couple of little artist's on my hands! ;)
All in all it was a great party!
What about you? Do you have any fun fall party ideas?
