PARTY DETAILS, as told by Paula

“Having a fall birthday is a perfect reason to celebrate pumpkin style! The fall has it’s own spectrum of wonderful decorations that make a seasonal ‘Little Pumpkin’ party so much more fun. Ellen of Ellen Bessette Events styled this fabulous homage to the pumpkin patch for our little Maddy. There were lots of treats, cider, s’mores, apple bobbing, and of course pumpkins.

I have to say, it’s a hard thing to turn a Florida back yard in August to a beautiful fall scene, but Ellen did it with flair. Straw bales, autumn leaves, mums and scarecrows dotted the yard with a punches of color. I especially love the wreath she hand crafted to hang over the dessert table. The pretty arbor the table was set in was swathed in leaf garlands and the table covered in another handmade creation, a pom-pom trimmed tablecloth.

Sweet treats from Lynlee’s Petite Cakes (fondant toppers) and The Cookie Jar (sugar cookies) starred on the table along with cinnamon flavored popcorn, lollipops and rock candy treats.

The kid-sized table used a pumpkin filled with flowers as the centerpiece. Ellen made the party hats from scrapbook paper, maribou and ribbon for the little ones to wear. To decorate the backs of the chairs, she used oversized felt pumpkins and tulle to create a chair swag that really popped!

A sweet little smash cakes with a pumpkin top from Something Sweet Cake Studio sat on top of the straw bales that lined the party area along with some cinnamon sticks and cider to wash it all down!

Our little Maddy made an appearance to eat some birthday cake in a little pumpkin tutu and matching hairband by Titi’s Tutus .

Ellen’s fun and colorful fall party stylings were truly enjoyed by the children as they ate, drank and played games!”

    I LOVE this theme! I am having my daughter’s party at a local pumpkin patch and stumbled upon this website while searching for plates. I NEED these adorable plates! Where can I get them???

    I love this site–I use many ideas. The best part is that this site is encouraging people to entertain. Most people “entertain” by always inviting people to eat out with them. I entertain in my home quite often, and people really love being in a home…not a outside establishment. Thanks for all the great ideas

    Maddie is going to be 2. I’m going to be 43! Halloween is my bday too. But, I can still have her cute and adorable party for my gal pals, right? I love this–soooo sweet! I haven’t bobbed for apples since I turned Maddie’s age. I think it’s time for a return to childhood.
