Little Pumpkin Party Set

Anyone have a "Little Pumpkin" in the house? Amanda's Parties To Go has an adorable printables set perfect for fall birthdays... OUR LITTLE PUMPKIN! This set includes so many great party decorations, sure to make your party planning easy. And your guests will be so impressed! Just take a look at some of the sweet decorations which can be used for both boys and girls too!

Cupcake toppers

 Sweet centerpiece picks

 Water bottle wraps

 Treat bag toppers for adorable party favors

 Full size candy bar wraps

Miniature candy bar wraps

 I love the Age (number) cut outs which can be used for cupcake toppers or food picks -- so cute!

  Bubble bottle wraps (Can also be used as napkin wraps)

 Hershey Kiss Circles

A "Guess How Many" game

 A "Happy Birthday (NAME)" banner personalized with your child's name

 Adorable pumpkin cut outs which can be used in so many ways... 

Set up a cute, fall themed table outside for party guests and let them paint pumpkins for an easy crafting activity

 Party signs include "Pumpkin Painting"

 Another party table could include drinks and pre-made lunches for the kids in farm-style wooden baskets

 How cute are these lunches? The sandwiches are even pumpkin-shaped using pumpkin cookie cutters and cheese balls were wrapped in orange tulle and tied with a green chenille stem. Include a water bottle and some apple sauce, too (I used a 3" circle punch to punch some papers from the collection to glue on top of the apple sauce to make it coordinate with the other party decor)

 Centerpieces were so easy with the printable scarecrow cut outs and other centerpiece designs from the collection

 Isn't this the sweetest party set? I hope you love it, too! You can view the full collection below:

FREE Back to School Printables Set

It's a GREAT TIME to plan those BACK TO SCHOOL ACTIVITIES! And with the Amanda's Parties To Go FREE BACK TO SCHOOL PRINTABLE SET, you'll have so much fun while you are at it. This set is huge and packed full of so many adorable printable files. Use the CUPCAKE TOPPERS to make some classroom treats for the first day of school, use the treat bag toppers to dress up your child's school lunch, and be sure to use the 1ST DAY OF SCHOOL prints for your child's 1st day of school photos. I hope you will love this photos from Cris McGrath of Crissy's Crafts who styled this adorable Back to School party using the printables.

Cris tells us more about her party styling.....

"Back to School is always an exciting time for my children. We have a "Mom and Me Day" to purchase the school supplies, special first day outfit, new shoes, new lunch bag and backpack. 

This year is extra special since my son, Joey, will start Pre-K!! I want to celebrate Joey's milestone by having a Welcome/Back to School Party. 

For this party, I tried to keep the snacks simple but creative. For the sweet table, we enjoyed some erasers (Stacker Mallows), pencils (twisters), chalk  (marshmallow confetti), ABC chocolate letters, 123 chocolate numbers, bookworm cupcakes with the cutest cupcake toppers ever from Lynlee's Petite Cakes, gum ball apples, apple cake pops and adorable apple sugar cookies from Sugar on Top

Before they hit the sweet table, the children munched on apple shaped whole wheat ham and cheese sandwiches, bookworm grapes and apple juice.  I set up the goodies on my daughter's desk and used my son's vintage school desk to display some of their treats that they took home.

For the backdrop, I used a black bulletin board paper, embellished with a polka dot trimmer and the Back to School banner from the FREE Back to School printable.  As favors, the youngest took home a metal school box from full of goodies. The older children received a lunch sack from Jill Celebrations full of school supplies. 

Thanks to Jill Celebration's chalk place mats, the kids played tic-tac-toe while munching on their snacks. What a fun and creative idea! 

I also used the FREE Back to School printable to embellish their lunch boxes, snack bags, mason jars, goodie bags, and popcorn container.

One of my favorite DIY projects for this party is the crayon cupcake stand using crayons and toilet paper roll! So easy to make and definitely made the cupcakes stand out!

The kids had a ball playing memory game and back to school bingo, too. A fun way to kick of the school year! "
