Over the Summer my little boy (5 during Summer, just turned 6) planted and cared for pumpkins, a whole plethora of pumpkins! He had amazing results, and decided to throw his first annual “Pumpkin Picking Party”. Since most of his harvest was white and blush pumpkins, we went with a “ghost pumpkin” theme for the invitations. You can find those invitation here at our Etsy shop. I will also post a photo of the layout for his “evite” below.
We would love to share the artwork with you. It is a hand drawn and painted Ghost Pumpkin set, a trio of 5 by 7s to print and frame or use as notecards. Also included are two 3.5 by 5 notecards (we do not want to waste cardstock). You can get those here:
We hope you print them out and would love it if you send us photos of them “in use”!
The First Annual pumpkin party was a HUGE hit. I need to remember to take more photos, and next event ( a friendsgiving planned next month) I will! The friends each picked two pumpkins, then I read “What Was I Scared of” by Dr Seuss, a funny book that reminds us that the things we are afraid of might be just as afraid of us as we are of them! The friends each made a mask, we had kittens, bats and sugar-skulls and we took photos in-front of a spooky backdrop. We kept the treats simple ~ Krispy treats with eyeball candies, goldfish crackers, cookies and apple juice. It was a fun gathering, and we are already making plans for next year.
Have you had a Halloween or Fall get-together yet? Are you planning one? What games and books are your favorites for fall?
Thank you for stopping by. If you have any questions about the printables or our “Pumpkin Picking Party” please ask.
More treats coming soon.
P.S. I want to show you this adorable invitation my Sister created for my niece’s birthday! It is a fun way to celebrate an October birthday, and is in the Etsy shop as well.
