First Birthday: Jonah's Pumpkin Patch (decor)

Monday, October 29, 2012

Thanks for visiting! I love sharing party planning posts... we are definitely a family that loves to party! After you check this party out, if you would like to see how I repurposed some of the party decor for our home this Fall, I would love if you came and took a little tour of our living room! See you there ---> Fall Home Tour | Living Room

I wanted Jonah's birthday party to be a celebration of our baby boy, as well as, a fun fall activity for us and our friends and family. I wanted to create a mini pumpkin patch complete with mini pumpkins, age appropriate games, a photo booth, yummy treats, and lots handmade decor. Every part of the yard had some kind of decor. The mini pumpkin patch had enough pumpkins for each kiddo invited to pick and take home. I used fabric scraps from my collection, my MIL's collection, my mom's and my sister's, plus I bought some oranges and blues to make the pennant banners and add the colors I wanted. We borrowed tables, bought (then sold) some hay bales, used and reused decor from past events and our relative's homes. I was really pleased with how it looked, unfortunately the stress of getting it all set up left me with not so perfect photos! I hope you can get the "feel" of the party through these photos!


There was rain on the day of the party, so I was extremely nervous about having EVERYTHING outside. I set up his cake and a few warm goodies inside. Below you'll see the cake table, a custom made no. 1 (tutorial to come), a year's worth of photos of Jonah, and I chalkboard banner I found on Very Jane a couple of week's ago.
Source List: Jonah's Outfit, Pumpkin Signs were borrowed from Keep Pearl Beautiful and repainted by my sister maggie and myself (chalkboard paint), Washi Tape Cake Topper - Found at Target, Supplies for the one: Joann's, Balloon Idea : Adapted from Pinterest by my sister Maggie
Please ask if you see something you'd like to hear more about! I LOVE planning parties (even if it's super stressful). Worth Every Minute. Jonah LOVED his party!

  10. I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is required to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I'm not very internet smart so I'm not 100% sure.

    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

  11. I am new to building websites and I was wanting to know if having your website title relevant to your articles and
    other content really that critical? I notice your title, "Blogger: Behind the Camera and Dreaming " does
    appear to be spot on with what your blog is about yet, I
    prefer to keep my title less content descriptive and based more around site
    branding. Would you think this is a good idea or bad idea?
    Any kind of assistance would be greatly valued.

  12. Hi there this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG
    editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  19. Love the pumpkin patch! We're having a princess pumpkin party for my daughter this October and will be adapting your idea for her theme. Since it's a Disney Princess Palace Pets party, we'll pretend the pets have hidden Cinderella's slipper in the patch and the children will each get to find it. Thanks for your inspirational post!
