This unique APPLE OF MY EYE SIXTH BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Jenny Raulli of Bloom Designs.

I love how creative this party theme is! It’s also fun to see an apple party that doesn’t relate to fall. It’s fresh, girly, and looks like it was so much fun! Some of my favorite things about this apple party are:

The pie making, paper mache, and bead necklace activity stations

The ice cream scoops served in nut cups and topped with sprinkles and a wooden spoon to resemble apples

The apple shaped cake pops

and MORE!

This is what Jenny said about planning the party- “I created this ‘apple of our eye’ party for my daughter, Charlotte’s, sixth birthday. I didn’t want the party to feel like a harvest so I incorporated crisp, modern printables and a preppy bright pink and apple green color scheme.

I wanted the focal point of the party to be an apple stand where the desserts would be displayed. I found a tutorial on how to make one on the blog, Lil Luna and decided to build it. I had the wood cut to size when I purchased it, so I basically just had to screw it together. My 10 year old daughter and her friend made the bunting for me using different hot pink and white fabrics. I had a local print shop cut a vinyl decal for the lettering. The farm stand and crates used for display were painted to match the pink on the invitation. I turned hot pink paper lanterns into apples and lined the edge of the yard with them.

When the little guests arrived for lunch, they untied their apple baskets from the backs of their chairs and dined on applewiches, harvest chips, mac ‘n cheese, apple sauce and of course a crisp green apple. They sipped on apple juice and lemonade served in glass jars. Each girl had an apple of our eye gumball tube at her place setting. To make the place mats, I simply made a document on word and then had it enlarged on thick glossy cardstock at my local printer shop.

After lunch, the girls put on ‘apple of my eye’ make up, made paper mache apples using left over fabric from the bunting and made apple necklaces. They also made their own mini apple pies in mason jars that we called, Charlie Pies- my daughter’s nickname.

The girls treated themselves at the farm stand, which was filled with apple cake pops, apple cupcakes, Apple Jacks, and candy apples. There was also ice cream scooped into candy cups and shaped to look like apples complete with a wooden ‘stem’ (spoon). They also loved the M&M ‘apples’ served in baking cups as well.

Party favors were ‘apple of my eye’ t-shirts.”

    Would love to use this theme for my daughters 1st b-day this fall. Is there a place I can find the apple paper or a printable for it?
