When you have an October baby that LOVES pumpkins and all things “Fall” what better birthday party theme than a Fall Festival! We had a small backyard Fall Festival birthday party for my baby girl’s 3rd birthday, that was just perfect for her.
Our main activity was Pumpkin Painting. What fun!
I Set up a “Pumpkin Patch” in the yard, which served as a decoration, and then each child chose their Pumpkin to paint. The pumpkin then went home with them as their party favor.
I purchased a large bale of hay from a local feed store for $9.99 to serve as the backdrop, and added small round pumpkins that I purchased at the local grocery store. For the sign I used scrapbook paper from and wood stake.
Our food selection was all part of the theme as well. Pumpkins and Apples abound!
For a fruit plate we served a “Pumpkin Patch” or oranges, using clementines with a small stick of celery for the stem.
Instead of a cake we did “Pumpkin” Cupcakes. These cuties are basic cupcakes with orange frosting and sugar topped with a pretzel stick stem.
And if those treats weren’t enough, I HAD to have a Caramel Apple Station and Apple Cider!
Our final party game was the old favorite: Doughnut on a string!
(It was Classic!)
