We celebrated at what is now my new favorite B'day spot...the pumpkin patch! It was just perfect for a party and I couldn't resist all of the fall goodness going on there. I'd like to say that I've been planning this for months, but that would be a lie. The idea hit me last Sunday night, so I quickly had invites printed and got on the horn with the best pumpkin patch in town. They were gracious enough to give up a table on their porch to celebrate on Saturday morning.
This was all fairly easy to whip together, and inexpensive. I had the burlap table cloth from a previous party and the napkins were leftovers from Jude's Home Depot party. I strung jute around the top of my appetizer platter and used it as a cupcake stand (cupcakes from Sams club). I used some card stock I had to make place cards and strung them to the munchkin pumpkins (bought at the patch) with jute. I grabbed a pumpkin off of my front porch and stentiled it...it's now back on the porch:). Oh, and I used felt and yarn to make the leaf garland that I found on pinterest here. Each child was given a pony or a camel ride and a bag of feed for the animal petting area. There was lots to do, and Rhett loved every minute of it!
I may need to go back for some mums. They were gorgeous!

Rhett is in stuffed animal heaven!!! He loves them, snugs them and carries them around by their necks.

What a fun celebration! We will likely be back for more pumpkin patch fun in years to come. Two years ago today I went into labor with my little pumpkin just hours after spending the afternoon at the pumpkin patch. It was the perfect end to a wonderful day.
