LO turned one today! We just had a mini vacation with MIL and stepFIL (they live out of province) on the weekend, and they did a cake, so we figured it was done. But I didn't like that idea by this morning, so I just texted/fbed invites to our close friends for a small party on Saturday. Last minute, but I couldn't just skip her birthday!! Tonight is the only chance I have to do errands until Sat morning (party at 2:30), so I need to plan it in the next 2h. Spam me with your easy ideas for a casual fall party please!
So far I'm thinking caramel apple cake pops, sugar cookies in shape of 1, mini pumpkin pies, apple tarts, short mason jars of candy corn to decorate the table, lemonade or apple cider to drink... maybe easy snacks like spinach dip with pumpernickel (could grab that on Sat) or cheese, crackers and veggie platter? I can make the baked goods on Friday with my daycare kids, they love pastry! I'll have to do decorations mostly at night though because the bigger kids would want to 'help', so any fast diy ideas would help lots!
