Candy Corn Birthday Party

AS SEEN ON AMY ATLAS!!!
WHEW…I got through this week. I really wasn’t sure I would at first. I had an INTENSELY busy week and without the help of my friends (Jenny!) and family (mom and hubby) I would have never got it all done. But I did and it turned out great. Amazing, actually. My favorite party I’ve done yet and for my favorite person too, so it was even better. The party just wrapped up hours ago, but I couldn’t WAIT to share my party pictures with you!! So here’s how it went…I decided on a Candy Corn Birthday Party theme.

I used DimplePrints (who I work with) for my printables. They made me a custom made Candy Corn party package and invitation. I {heart} them SO much for all they do for me–and always so patient too. I am all about the dessert tables, so I tried to keep the food more simple and really go overboard on the desserts. I served BBQ Pulled Chicken sandwiches, cheesy potatoes, caesar pasta salad, chips, apples with carmel, cheese and crackers, veggies and dip, buffalo chicken dip, and various drinks. All my dips were served in carved out pumpkins. :)

For desserts we served candy corn iced cupcakes in vanilla and chocolate, mini-mason jar apple pies, candy corn butterfingers, candy corn cheesecake mousse, Sweeties by Kim Chocolate Covered Oreos (amazing!), candy corn sugar cookies, and for a favor I made Candy Corn Bark to go home. Want to see the pics? Check out my party!!

 Mini Mason Jar Apple Pies…a HUGE party hit. I wrapped twine around each 4 oz. mason jar

 Candy corn bark cups as a favor
 I decided that I wanted to go for an Autumn Country look for the party, so I used a lot of hay bales from JoAnn’s as well as pennant bunting and more yellows and oranges than any other colors.
 Here was the main dessert table…with a few desserts missing on it because the table was too small for everything LOL
 Candy Corn Butterfinger Pops
 Hand painted wooden spoons
 Cookies from Sweeties By Kim
I put vinyl “2’s” on all the pumpkins for added decoration
 Candy Corn Cheesecake Mousses–adorned with handmade chocolate wafers from Sweeties by Kim
 Andrew’s smash cake (not my favorite cake ever) with pennant bunting
 Happy birthday baby boy!
I love my boys :)
