PARTY DETAILS, as told by Nichole

This was a fun party to celebrate all things fall.  My 2 year old thinks Halloween is “scary” so this was more about fun and crafts.


  • Make your own bird feeder (pinecones, peanut butter, birdseed, and string)
  • Apple Stamps (I cut apples in half and let them dip in paint and stamp the paper)
  • Put the Leaves on the Tree.  (we had a bare tree print out and lots of paints.  The kids used q-tips to put the leaves on the branches)\


  • Eat the donuts (off the trees)
  • Potato sock racing
  • Don’t fall on the spiders. (a low balance beem that the kids would walk across.  Large spiders and webs were underneath)
  • Ball Toss (into a jack-o-lanterns mouth)
  • Bounce house with slide


  • Brats, chili, & Local Beer for the adults
  • Boxed lunches for the kids (PB&J, juice, pirate booty)

DIY Crafts:

  • Buntings
  • Spider lollipops
  • Mummy chocolate bars
  • Signage for games
