Fall Birthday Party Ideas for Kids

Way, WAY back in the day, I was a fall baby… and so was my younger brother.  Through the years, my mother planned quite a few fall birthday parties.  Searching for inspiration for today’s post brought it all flooding back!

First up… the PUMPKIN cake!

Here is a quick recipe for a pumpkin shaped cake:

But, maybe that isn’t quite pumpkin-y enough?  How about this one, from Stonewall Kitchen?

AND… look what I found!  A pumpkin shaped  cake pan set from amazon:

So… fall party pumpkin cake, check.

On to goodie bags and favors!  An adorable owl goodie bag, from babble.com:

How about some OWL S’mores… OH yea!  (from The Savvy Moms Guide, who, by the way, has quite a few fun ideas for a Thanksgiving theme party):

For tons of inspiration, I recently found (and fell in love with) Hostess with the Mostess.  One of the features that I can’t get enough of is the photo album section – party planners (and moms) can upload their party photos into albums for all to see!  When searching, I found this ADORABLE Rustic Fall party album.  Check out the fun (and funny!) “rotten pumpkin teeth” goodie bags:

And you simply MUST LOOK at all the photos from this elegant Halloween or Thanksgiving party album (again, from Hostess with the Mostess) including the stunning autumn cake below:

I’m so inspired to have a fall party… it’s just too bad my kids’ birthdays are in March and April!
