Apple Party!!

It's officially FALL!! And that means it was time for an Apple Party to celebrate! Throughout September, the boys and I have been decorating the house for fall (see our crafts here: Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3). We also spent the morning of the party getting some fantastic apple food ready! This included Grandma Melba's Apple Nothin', hot apple cider, a caramel apple slice dipping bar (with homemade salted caramel!), caramel marshmallow popcorn, and apple butter spice cake!!

The table was set with my cute new fall tablecloth and new fall plates and bowls! As well as the returning scarecrows in jars of beans (they were new last year :-)).

Caramel apple slice dipping bar - caramel candy corn, chocolate chips, M&M's, marshmallows, and sprinkles (which weren't on the table yet when I took this picture...silly)

The apple butter cake was delicious and moist, and sooo very fall-ish!

Nu-nuh brought her apple punch, stamps and fall construction paper to make fun cards - Ethan had to push very hard to make it work!!

Emy enjoyed the apple cider!

This was my sweet card from Ethan...he designed it himself!

And I was told I could have one apple - Andrew got the other one!

All in all, it was a fun time! Lots of delicious food, the smell of fall all throughout my house, a little rain and hailstorm outside, and "Holiday Inn" as our movie of choice for the afternoon.

Can't wait for next month's Halloween party together!
