We had The Pumpkin’s birthday party yesterday, it was, well, disastrous, but very, very fun! We had the party at home, outside on an empty, flat spot. The perfect spot…or so we thought, the place was covered in fire ants, we didn’t notice the giant ant hill the day before when we started setting up the pumpkin patch. The Bundle, a little boy and I all got bit by the ants! Despite the “inconvenience”, we managed to have fun.
Here it is: The Pumpkin Patch Party.
I found lots of ideas and inspiration for the party on Pinterest, if you’ve never checked it out, do it! You’ll be obsessed in no time. The little tissue paper pumpkins were the little candy favors, just the right size for a handful of candy.
Another “disaster” happened with the cake, I was planning on making a really cute shape of a pumpkin but I tried (and changed) a recipe that I had never tried before. Oh well, you live and learn. Oh, I
accidentally purposely forgot to take a picture of it. But I did get one of the cute little one for the Pumpkin. The yummy homemade coconut milk frosting was made by Auntie Sissy!
And then, we lit the candle. Right in front of everyone, in the blink of an eye, The Pumpkin reached and grabbed the fire! Poor little Pumpkin, she had been so excited for her cake and didn’t want to eat it after that.
She got a brand new caaar! Thanks, Mawni and Papa 😉 She loves it, and so does The Bundle. While sitting in the car yesterday evening, she said, “I love getting new presents.” She didn’t specify whose 😉
