Harvest Party

This is Manoah and his mom. This was his first birthday party. We rented a greenhouse at the Plumper Pumpkin patch in Aloah OR.  His mom wanted a harvest theme. The colors she selected were orange, yellow, white, brown and gold. Very fall color scheme.

I painted several chevrron pumpkins and spray painted metallic pumpkins. This is the  reception and gift table.

When guests arrived they were greeted by a chalk board that announced the event.

The flower arrangements were made from pumpkins and dried flowers. Hydrangea, lavender and poppy pods.

Party favors were home made hot chocolate on a stick.
And these really cute lamb cookies.

For the decorations in the rest I the space I made party flags from heavy duty  scrapbook paper. I cut triangles out of solid papers in orange, brown and white. I accented with yellow and white chevrron, stripes and polka dot printed paper. I then glued them to twine. We strung them in a swag stay le throughout the space. They were very festive.

We also ordered chineese lanterns in the party colors several weeks in advance. They provided some colorful pops through out the greenhouse. I hung them with white zip-ties.

The mom wanted a photo booth so that she. Could have a scrap book of the party. I purchased this great  damask printed burlap fabilric. And stacked hay bales in front of it for seating. The accents were this really cute owl and some pumpkins I painted. We also provided props for the guests to use in their photos. A pitchfork a shovel and a cowboy hat.
The farm had a pumpkin patch complete with lots if activities ranging from hay rides and a petting zoo to a maze and  a live band.

We also provided several activities for out guests. Including my favorite part of the party make your own candy apples. Yummm!

The food was a smorgus board of cookies and pies and cakes it was very cute. We also served chili and chicken wings.

Other activities for kids included a pumpkin painting and decorating station, a scrap booking station where guests could write a birthday message for Manoah and decorate a page for the crapbook using their photo from the booth. 

We provided lots if iutdoor seating as well. It was such a nice day.
