Apple Picking Party (38 photos)
Fall is easily my favorite time of year. School is back in season, routine is in order, college football has commenced and Mother Nature couldn't be more generous. Our family has a variety of fun fall traditions and one of them is an annual trip to a local apple orchard. There's nothing quite like seeing children's faces as they take bites from an apple they picked themselves. ...and what better way to welcome fall than an apple picking party?
To me, a Midwest girl, fall means HOME. It means FAMILY. It means COMFORT. I wanted the design of this party to reflect that feeling. I chose warm colors and classic prints. Our guests were treated to a variety of apple inspired desserts, including sweet mini pies, the cutest little cupcakes, darling apple cake pops and super sweet boutique cookies. Our cake has a simple, clean finish and is given dimension with beauitufl ribbon and fabric.
While the brisk air means Winter is coming, how nice to know that we can savor the beauty of fall and all it's abundance for now.
