I've been taking a picture a day (roughly) of K since he was born. I decided to do something with some of the photos for the party. I had seen this online before here and really liked it.
This was my first time etching a pumpkin, and I think it turned out pretty good.
Additional party decorations......
It was supposed to rain, so we decided to decorate the garage to have more space. Not the prettiest place to take pictures, but it worked out. Lucky for us it only rained a little bit. The lanterns I made following Martha Stewart's directions.
I got so involved in the party, I forgot to take too many pictures of the food. For lunch we had some kid-friendly comfort foods. Homemade (non-spicy) chili, macaroni and cheese, chicken wings, green and fruit salads, and some huge pieces of cornbread! (The mini hot dogs were actually appetizers)
I'm a huge dessert person so I felt like we needed some varieties. Guests could take a little of everything home with them.
And last but not least, it was time for cake! K had a really good time with it.
All in all I think the party was a success!
