As a little girl, going to visit a farm at camp was my favorite summer activity! I loved seeing all the cows, pigs, and barnyard activity. I think hosting a BARNYARD Birthday Bash is a fabulous kids’ party theme!
Abracadabra! You’re in for a treat with this MAGIC BIRTHDAY PARTY full of vanishing tricks, wizard wands, and all sorts of magic fun! Lydia Menzies of The Party Wagon celebrated her son’s 6th birthday to the max! Guests were greeted by magic carpets, fitted with a magician’s cape, and enjoyed an array of wizardy treats…
There are 2 more chances to become a finalist in the Sterling Ultimate Host Challenge! That’s 2 more chances to become one step closer to a HUGE cash prize + trip to Napa’s Sterling Vineyards for 4! Finalists will join me (and the other judges + Sterling crew + Padma Lakshmi) in NYC THIS DECEMBER for the final challenge!
Meredith Santucci, co-owner of MJ Paperie, sent in the most adorable pumpkin-themed 1st birthday! I love pulling in seasonal themes for birthdays. It makes the event festive and fun for everyone. Guests at little Avery’s 1st birthday enjoyed pumpkin painting and sweet fall treats. I especially love the invitations featuring a photo envelope liner (see above) – clever + cute!
Caramel apples are one of my favorite treats for fall parties, Halloween gatherings, + more! The only problem is that gnawing down on a huge sticky apple on a stick doesn’t make for a very flattering look for anyone. So when I spotted these cute caramel apple bites on Burwell General Store, I knew they would be the perfect solution for getting your caramel apple fix without the mess!
