Harvest Party

Here are some pictures from a mother-daugther harvest party I hosted over the weekend.

This was a little idea I had as an alternative to a candy buffet- Make your own trailmix!
These pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting were so yummy! Perfect for fall!

See those cute little treat boxes? I got those at Walmart for only a few dollars in their party section and decorated them with some fun scrapbooking papers.

The caramel apples- we planned on making these ourselves, but that ended up being a disaster...thank goodness we found some at the store a few minutes away!

I used mason jars throughout the party decor. I love the vintage feel they add- and they are inexpensive too, which is always a bonus. : )
We gathered some fun fall scrapbooking materials and made easy mother-daughter memory books out of 12x12 scrapbook sheets.
Best Rolled Sugar Cookies is the perfect name for these melt-in-your-mouth treats. I've been making these for a few years now, and people rave every time!
I found this idea for little placecards online just a day or two befor the party- I'm so glad I did. We used the tags inside to write something we were thankful for, then pinned them to a string of twine with mini clothespins from Hobby Lobby.

I always love the paper party goods at Hobby Lobby. If you have a chance, go to a Hobby Lobby near you- their Fall and Christmas products are on sale big time. That place is dangerous for me...These beautiful napkins were the perfect addition to our party decor.
