Apple party

Travis turned five,
he's always been the
apple of my eye!
Having boys doesn't mean you need to tread down the pirate, cowboy and superhero party theme path. Think about theming his party around what your child enjoys- what makes him smile...in my case, it was apple pie!
Using an imprintables stamp, I used the green party bags to place hot popcorn.


Tablesetting of apple inspired flavours.

Toffee apples - yum!


Owner of "Sweet Pops" made this delicious sponge cake.



Wooden airplanes kept the boys entertained for hours.



Imprintables "Apple" invitation

Apple lemonade recipe:
1 bottle of apple juice
1 bottle of pear juice
1 2L bottle of lemonade
Combine; watch the children and mums alike devour this tasty concoction



Purchasing small child sized apples from my local green grocer, green toffee apples, serving apple lemonade and of course apple pie with ice-cream could not have been easier. Adding a bit of eco-chic with bamboo cutlery and plates from IKKO and putting an Imprintables stamp on it made it even more ENJOYable!




We played traditional party games such as bobbing for apples, flying wooden airplanes, sack race and tug-of-war. It kept all of the boys entertained.

Hot apple pie and vanilla ice-cream was a favourite.

One valuable lesson I learned was to have an alternate plan for wet weather. With only one hour before the party commenced, the rain was horrendous. The initial concept of having a 'picnic in the park' was not viable and the venue had to change at home...which unfortunately was not in a state to be hosting a party.
Thankfully it all worked out in the end and Travis could not have been happier!

I am in the U.S., any idea how the apple/pear/lemonade amounts equal out? Our juice often comes in 64 ounce bottles, but we do have 2 liter lemonade. Go figure, metrics and ounces. Thanks.
Really cute party ideas!

I love these ideas! I'm looking to do an apple harvest theme party for my son's 3rd birthday. Thanks for sharing these adorable ideas. I have a question, though.. where did you find that vintage apple sign? It's so perfect! Because, not only are we apple farmers but our family makes apple cider. :o)
