Apple of Our Eye Party

Finally, it's time to share my daughter, Charlotte's Apple of My Eye Party on my blog!  I was going to wait until the party planning series is over but I have a lot more to say and I can't wait any longer to share these photos with you.  

I created this Apple of Our Eye party for my daughter, Charlotte’s, sixth birthday. I did not want the party to feel like a harvest so I incorporated crisp, modern printables and a preppy bright pink and apple green color scheme.

When the little guests arrived for lunch, they untied their apple baskets from the backs of their chairs and dined on applewiches, harvest chips, mac ‘n cheese, apple sauce and of course a crisp green apple. They sipped on apple juice and lemonade served in glass jars. Each girl had an apple of our eye gumball tube at her place setting. To make the placemats, I simply made a document on word and then had it enlarged on thick glossy cardstock at my local printers
After lunch the girls did apple of my eye make up, made paper mache apples using left over fabric from the bunting and made apple necklaces. They also made their own mini apple pies in mason jars that we called, Charlie Pies- my daughter’s nickname.
The girls treated themselves at the farm stand, which was filled with apple cake pops, apple cupcakes, applejacks, and candy apples. There was also ice cream scooped in candy cup and shaped to look like apples complete with wooden stem or spoon. They also loved the M&M apples done in baking cups as well.
Party favors were apple of my eye t-shirts.

I made this placement on my compute,r then had the copy store enlarge it on glossy cardstock

The complete line of printables, the chevron sandwich bags, baking cups and straws are available in my etsy store.  HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!
