harvest party

We hosted a Harvest Party this weekend where we organized a trip to Stoney Ridge Farm (our local pumpkin patch, apple orchard and overall fall fun place) and then invited everyone back to our house for pumpkin carving, a chili feed and games. We had a great time with old and new friends. Thanks for coming everyone!

Here are a few decor pics:

Tasty treats and LOTS of candy. When was the last time you had a caramel apple sucker?!

Dress up your drink...We had egg nog and packets of cider and hot chocolate for drinking. They could be spiced up with the addition of Baileys, Peppermint Schnapps, Rum or Goldschlagger along with caramels, cinnamon or coffee flavoring.

The tub and apples for bobbing...

Supplies for bobbing for apples. BJ was in charge of games.

Pumpkin carving stations.

Some photos of the afternoon’s festivities.

Nate and Gina with their Caramel Apple Ciders.

The goat tightrope. The goat walks along this little bridge and people hoist a can of food to the top of the bridge for the goat. It's weird and hilarious.

We thought it would be fun to bring our baby back next year for a photo in front of the "How Tall This Fall" board.

Gina and I in front of the Stoney Ridge Farm wall of pots.

Gina and Steph making their drinks.

Hardcore pumpkin carvers.

Action shots of bobbing for apples...BJ...

Caleb, bobbing for apples. The boys were the only participants. Go figure!

Boys playing Wii. Nora watching along.

Some of the finished pumpkins.

I have to say that Stoney Ridge Farms is the cutest fall fun farm that I have ever been to. They have everything you ever could have wanted including delicious donuts and Jonagold apples all in a super cute rustic setting. If you live in the Pacific Northwest you should definitely make your way up to Stoney Ridge.
