It's that time of year again!
It's Pumpkin Party Time!
We seriously look forward to this party all year long.
My mom always plants a great pumpkin patch--each year it gets bigger and bigger--and all year we monitor the progress of the pumpkins, waiting for the big event.
And every year it is filled with much fall festiveness, good food, and great company.
This year for extra fun and to add to the overall atmosphere, I surprised my mom with this pumpkin sign to use as decor.
My husband helped me cut a pallet to the size I wanted, and then I just used craft paint to paint "Pumpkins for Sale" on it with some vines and a pumpkin.
I was going for rustic and simple, so I didn't plan anything out fancy--just went for it. It took much longer than I expected (maybe because I was watching shows with my husband?) but it turned out to my liking.
My mom made some seriously amazing chili--her mom's recipe--and we all talked and reconnected while eating it and warm corn bread with a good smear of honey butter.
We even had family from North Dakota and California come all the way out to Idaho and be there at our party.
After eating our chili and sampling lots of fall desserts, we headed out to the pumpkin patch where all the kids got to claim a pumpkin.
Such a great family tradition!
Thanks Mom for once again hosting a fun and festive party. :)
