My next party feature goes to this fun CARAMEL APPLE PARTY submitted by Michelle Wamboldt of Favor Box Bakery. Such a perfect fall party theme…so clever! Everything looks delicious. The display and set up is so visually stunning. Great job, Michelle! Thanks for your submission! Congratulations on being chosen as a feature!
Here is what Michelle said about the party- “Having been in the baking industry for awhile now, we knew it was the official month for National Cookie Day, National Dessert Day, National Apple Day, and National Caramel Day…so we decided to celebrate them all with- A Caramel Apple Affaire…
This was such a fun day! A day of making your own caramel apples, drinking apple cider, eating caramel apple pie, and playing in piles of leaves on a sunny Autumn Day with family and friends!
Guests made their own caramel apples and topped them with chocolate, sprinkles, nuts, and candies! Every guest had a favor tag with their name printed on it. When they finished making their caramel apple, we put them in Caramel Apple Favor Boxes for them to take home. Everyone also took home a Caramel Apple Mini Pie in a favor box, and a Caramel Apple Cupcake kit.”Vendors:
My next party feature goes to this beautiful “I AM THANKFUL FOR” THANKSGIVING DESSERT TABLE submitted by Paula Morrill ofParty Like Paula. Such a lovely dessert bar! I love the brown & white with a touch of orange. The patterns are all so fun, too! This whole printable Thanksgiving collection can be purchased FOR ONLY $6 in Paula’s shop here! Even though Thanksgiving is just a few days away there is still time to purchase this collection. All you do is print & cut..and you have it all! A simple way to spice up your Thanksgiving!
Here is what Paula said about the dessert table- “I handmade everything myself from the sweet treats to the decadent decor! I even made the brown curtains out of a $15 bed sheet from WalMart. Cut down the middle, hem the sides, and VIOLA instant chic drapes! Caramel Apples are a staple for this time of year. I filled a basket with these yummy treats on top of some patterned paper from the new THANKSGIVING COLLECTION. Sticks take the place of popsicle sticks and a small accent of tied twine on top. How about some caramel corn? Sweet, sticky, crunchy and oh so easy to make. A sweet drink is always a nice choice for a dessert table. Apple cider is not only yummy in your tummy, but makes your house smell super UHmazing while you are making it! Molasses cookies are soft and flavorful. Right out of the oven with some cider screams THANKSGIVING! If you are watching your waistline this season then you have to try Pumpkin Pie Frozen Yogurt. Served in hollowed out mini pumpkins with a dessert flag makes you feel like you are eating something more decadent than you are!
The patterned paper in mynew collection can be wrapped around candles and made into a table runner. Napkin rings and place cards bring unity to the table through the same brown and white pattern. Add drink flags to your glasses or party circles for a festive touch. Remember to lay out the “I Am Thankful For…” cards and have your guests reflect on what they are thankful for this year. Hang the cards up with the “Give Thanks” banner and you are all set! Don’t forget about the kids this Thanksgiving!

My next party feature is this lovely HALLOWEEN AND THANKSGIVING PARTY submitted by Kori Clark of Paper & Pigtails! What a perfect concept…a fall party that would work for both thanksgiving & halloween! Genius! All the party printables for the party are just darling. The best part…Kori is offering the halloween circles, fall circles, halloween sign & fall sign to my readers for FREE. Download them here! Thank you, Kori!! The rest of the adorable party printables can be purchased in her shop here.Kori said- “This shoot comes from the most practical and honest side of me. At the risk of being tarred and feathered by party loving friends, I haven’t really ever decorated for Halloween….I decorate for fall and tweak little bits to change things up from Halloween through Thanksgiving. This is how I came up with the concept of a party that could be easily put together for a Halloween Party, and all of the items and details could be used again for a family Thanksgiving dinner, or even just fall entertaining!
The design for the shoot was based on the printable designs used, and I wanted to focus on white pumpkins with a silhouette feel. I wanted to get away from typical Halloween colors with a crisp white and deep chocolate browns.
The dessert table is always a favorite of mine, as I think it provides a beautiful backdrop to a get together! I covered the table in chocolate colored linens, and then created my own “table runners” but placing a strip of double sided tape down each side and adhering doilies and white pumpkin cut outs across the top of the table and down the front. To give a little height and definition, I hung strips of burlap made like large tassles in the trees to hang down on either side. The table featured darling fondant pumpkins from , a holiday framed sign (one for Halloween and another one for Thanksgiving), pecan pie bits, cupcakes, and a beautiful cake and cake pops made by a friend who will be launching her cakerie in 2012!! I also made chocolate covered marshmallows to look like white pumpkins!
The kids table had the same doilies and pumpkin cut outs along with a container of crayons for the little ones to color them with! At each place setting there was a stick of rock candy for a little take home treat.
Sweet Things Kids created an outfit to coordinate with the printables and I just adore it! The tutu was so fluffy and she used the same material from the pumpkin to make a tie for the little guy!”
