Autumn Nature Birthday Party

So what do you do for a November Birthday Party?  It's too chilly for an outdoor picnic, but there is still a lot of inspiration in the changing nature of autumn.  

Nature collection from our autumn walks ready for kid crafting.

Party hats! Bamboo and recycled paper from Smock

Goodie Bags with acorn, squirrel, owl and tree stamps with lots of glitter.

Leaf, owl, acorn, pumpkin and butterfly cookies with lots of frosting.

Japanese bound coloring book.

Woodland animal coloring pages from First School

Nature and air dry clay sculpture made by the kiddos. A variation of the Montessori flower arranging activity we did here

Gathering around the table for autumn-colored chocolate cake.

Blowing out the candles; thanks for holding up the hat Willie!

Smiling faces; Cute as cake!

Autumn woodlands scene.  Holztiger toys from Moolka.

I love the party hats, the coloring books, and the fact that you placed Nature's collections on fine dining ware. Au naturel and classy at the same time :)

Sorry I missed the fun!

How inspirational! How beautiful! The memories you give this child! I am in awe of your creativity. Side note: update your Scorpio's age. Tee hee. She is now four, you know.
