Caroline’s birthday falls right before Halloween, so her mommy thought it would be special to design a party around a concept that would not only be fun this year, but fun for years to come. SO, we went with a modern, girly twist to the classic children’s television movie “It’s a Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown”.
The backdrop to this table was inspired by numerous scenes from the actual movie, incorporating a brighter version of the purple sky and Snoopy’s silhouette. Simple bulk snacks were served in apple baskets with fun signage. Cupcakes were sitting atop scattered hay and topped with personalized Charlie Brown inspired paper toppers. The cake was modern and simple as not to clash with the table’s backdrop. And then sweet shortbread pumpkin cookies were set in front of the cake, perfectly bite sized for the toddlers in attendance. The “Happy Birthday” banner hanging in front of the table incorporated purple from the backdrop (also one of the birthday girl’s favorite colors), black & white polka dots inspired from the “Ghost” scenes in the movie and yellow to tie together with the Woodstock printables. And finally, plush party favors were displayed on two hay bales leaning on either side of the overall display.
Purple base linens were used to pull the color from the main table throughout the party. Simple black and & white polka dot runners were selected to incorporate ghost elements from the movie. And fun hand painted Charlie Brown pumpkin centerpieces held all-white flowers for the final girly touch to these tables.
In addition to the giant bounce house in the front yard, guests played with the Snoopy bean bag toss game and had their pictures take in the Charlie Brown photo board. Sometimes simple is the best way to go!!
