fall tea party

Menu:
peanut butter sandwiches on pumpkin shaped bread

popcorn

orange jello jigglers

apples with caramel

home-made pumpkin peeps

mini pumpkin pies

hot apple cider

orange kool-aid

tea

We had another homeschool family over the other day and enjoyed some fallish treats, stories, and games together. I found some new desserts to try....

The mini pumpkin pies turned out so cute and very yummy- Two thumbs up!!! Thanks Bakerella- you have done it again! See recipe and how-to here. (easy to make and also very good with whip cream on top)
Next festive treat- pumpkin peeps. This is what my 6 year old was making in the sneak peek. So easy and fun to make:
*wet large marshmallows
*shake them in a bag with sugar that you have foodcolored orange
*stick in a pretzel stick
*use icing or candy coating to make a little leaf
I saw this idea here.


Cutting the bread with a pumpkin cookie cutter


PB&J sandwiches

Kid-made name tags for each plate


The moms' spot at the counter



the kids' table



ready to party!


I cannot tell you how many pies I have eaten!!!! Too many! But let me tell you they are gooooood. (made with cream cheese)

Storytime- the pumpkin patch book again
