Rachel's budget party had all the essential elements of a wonderful gathering: good weather, good food and good friends. She tells us a bit about it: We chose a Fall theme for Cole's first birthday party. My hope was to host a relaxed get-together which wasn't fussy or gift-oriented. I think my budget for this party was under $40.

Decorations were made out of pipe cleaners, twine, and leaves. Food was a mix of sweet and salty, with pumpkin donut muffins (recipe from Tasty Kitchen), oatmeal cookie sandwiches, fall-colored pepper rings, pretzels and roasted chickpeas. All ages were invited to make a 'sandscape' using a glass baby food jar and fall-colored sand that I dyed with Wilton icing dye from Michaels. Red-wagon rides were a big hit. We had perfect fall weather and a wonderful, memorable time!

Thanks Rachel!
