Pierce's first "punkin bash"....


Last Friday (the 30th) we had our first "punkin bash" for Pierce at our condo... I am sure this is the first of many... but I do have to say my sweet friend Ashley Edens is the one that brought this on... a couple of weeks ago I received a huge care package with tons of Halloween treats, plates, napkins, decor, crafts, etc... I immediately thought if Ashley had these she would have a party so in her honor... we had a party with our friends here in Singapore...Thank you Edens family.
We had been talking about the party with Pierce for about a week and he could hardly stand it... I had to decorate and cook and get ready for the party when he was asleep.... if he saw anything that had a punkin (I know I am spelling it wrong but this is how Pierce says it) on it... he would go crazy.... so the picture below is minutes before the party started... he was so excited he was rolling around on the ground with joy.

Getting ready for the party I knew there would be alot of sweets so I wanted to make this party not only sugar rush happy but a little crafty... and thanks to Ashley and my mom we got some crafts to do....

Here is the baby table with crayon coloring and books.
Here is the cupcake and cookie station... kids got to decorate their own cookie and cupcake to eat...



The painting station was outside... all the kids got to paint their own punkin...

The foam sticker station was on the coffee table... kids got to make cards to send to friends or make door hanging signs or foam cards.

Goodie bags... and the veggie tray is in the face of a monster... a friendly monster that is.

Here is coloring stations for all... thanks to my mom she sent Pierce these cute little place mats that you can color and there were so many that we got to share them with friends...

Pierce is ready and cute but he is not sure how long this costume is going to stay on... so they better hurry.

Maybe one more pose mom... say cheese.

Friends start to arrive and boy were they all cute...
The kids partaking in the activities... oh what fun.





Some of the moms dressed up... wow they are good moms.
This is Jamie... nice hair sweet friend... only you could look this good in buns.
Can you believe this momma just had a baby 6 weeks ago... her little one is the background propped up on the coach... so cute and one hot mama.
This is Jessica... this is not her baby but the caterpillar belongs to her.
Mommies at work
Towards the end of the party... we found these two on the porch painting each other... poor violet had all in her mouth.

Pierce did not make it in the group picture at the top bc he was in timeout... by the time he got out we had lost some of the kids but this is the best I could get (and some of the kids had already left before we were able to take the photo... next time I will take the photo at the beginning).

When most of the friends had left I found Pierce in the back bedroom watching a movie with sleeping baby Marek.
Here is Pierce putting on a show for his friends... I had a mom come and get me and say "you have got to see this"... so cute..

Wow... what a great Friday.... we just love friends and fellowship... and a good excuse to get all dressed up and eat lots of candy.... until next year.

I think you outdid yourself with that party! It looks so fun I wish I had been invited! You have to help me throw a party for Lydia and her friends...I'm just not that creative (or thoughtful). You're one gifted momma!

Lisa said...

Those photos are going to make an awesome scrapbook page! Looks like a lot of fun...you're the hostess with the mostess!

Let me get this straight -- not only did you willingly have a bunch of little bitty kids in your house, but you also let them paint AND decorate cupcakes??? You're awesome. And insane. But mostly awesome.

Everything looks so cute! Was it a huge mess afterwards? That's what keeps me from doing something fun like that -- the thought of the mess afterwards... Ugh.

So wish I could've been at your party! I had a little party myself this year, but we both know you are a MUCH better party thrower than I. Looks like fun. Pierce is quite the entertainer! What is he saying? Sounds like he is chanting something like, "You wanna play this game with me!" To funny. That kid can draw a crowd!

Amazing party, Camille. You are definitely a hostess with the most-ess! Glad to see you still managed to have a little bit of traditional Fall, on your side of the world!
