PARTY DETAILS, as told by Wendy…

This weekend we celebrated my sweet Bella’s 9th birthday with a backyard bash with some country flair. The theme was Pumpkin County Fair and we tried to make it a little feminine by sticking with pinks, oranges & black. All of the decorations were a labor of love by my very talented mother and myself… and my wonderful mother-in-law helped out with the baking. My son and a friend of the family were our “carnies” and I think they were the two cuties carnies I have ever seen. They did a great job helping the younger kids with all of the games. Thank you to all who came to celebrate, I hope you had as much fun as we did!

    Beautiful Party!
    Where did you get the caramel apple boxes? Or did you make them? I have seen the clear boxes before but I like the colorful bottoms they sit on.
    I have a small Caramel Apple business and I’m always looking for different ways to wrap them!
    If you ever want to do a giveaway around the Fall Holidays on your blog, let me know! Thanks!
