Best Kids Parties: Pumpkin Patch

Best Kids Parties: Pumpkin Patch

The pumpkin patch Nancy created for her daughter's party has all the color and fun of a real pumpkin patch with the addition of some sweet and feminine touches. She shares: My oldest daughter turned 6 this month. She is truly in love with fall. Every year she asks to go to the pumpkin patch. About six months ago, she asked for a pumpkin patch party. I was thrilled with the challenge to create something rustic, yet trendy and girly!

Food & Dessert: The girls enjoyed mac-n-cheese. There were fruit kabobs, corn on the cob, turkey chili with cheese and cornbread. We served a delicious pumpkin chocolate chip cake and cupcakes. There were caramel apples and caramel popcorn. I set a jar with pumpkin gummies, chocolate pretzels and custom-made marshmallows on a stick. To drink we offered individual orange juice boxes and bottled water.

Favors: Custom made personalized aprons. Guests also received pumpkin baskets with a pink bow inside and custom pumpkin personalized bracelets from 3 little birds boutique. They each got to take a small pumpkin with their name on it.

Activities: The girls got to decorate their own pumpkin cookies with frosting and sprinkles. There was a "craft" table where they could paint a wood pumpkin mask, coloring pages, and a word puzzle. They each took a cute trunk tree pencil from the Pretty Little Party Shop. They got to break a custom made girly scarecrow pinata with lots of candy inside as well.

It was a great time! We can't wait to host another over-the-top party with our little girlfriends!
