Apple of My Eye

Party Recap

I created this “apple of our eye” party for my daughter, Charlotte’s, sixth birthday. I didn’t want the party to feel like a harvest so I incorporated crisp, modern printables and a preppy bright pink and apple green color scheme.

I wanted the focal point of the party to be an apple stand where the desserts would be displayed. I found a tutorial on how to make one on the blog, Lil Luna and decided to build it. I had the wood cut to size when I purchased it, so I basically just had to screw it together. My 10 year old daughter and her friend made the bunting for me using different hot pink and white fabrics. I had a local print shop cut a vinyl decal for the lettering. The farm stand and crates used for display were painted to match the pink on the invitation. I turned hot pink paper lanterns into apples and lined the edge of the yard with them.

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.

Thanks for viewing my party!

    This party is soooo cute but a friendly suggestion (please dont take the wrong way) you may want to delete the photo of the invitation since it has a guest's name and address on it just for safety reasons. Great job on the party!

    This has been a favorite party of mine for a while (maybe because my daughter's name is Charlotte too). I just saw you on the Today show and I was like, "Hey, I know that party!!!" Congratulations!!!
