If your child was born in the time of autumn leaves and pumpkin spice lattes, then you’ll be thrilled to learn How To Throw A Pumpkin Patch Themed Party where all things are orange and warm. It’s simple, it’s fun and it can be done yourself or by a pro. Sometimes it’s super stressful to plan a kids party, so you’re going to love the ease of this theme.
You can host this party at home, of course, but you can also try out your local park or pumpkin patch. A barn is also a pretty cool idea and perhaps the farm also has some animals the children can pet. If the weather is chilly, the barn with hay creates a cozy atmosphere. Some fairy lights can make it even more magical. You can also take the pumpkin theme into the warmer months with a cool kids picnic, courtesy of Picnic And Chill. They organize luxurious picnic set-ups in the California and Bay Areas, and also help with wedding coordination, table settings and balloons. Check out the Insta!
2) Pumpkin Decorating Kits
A great pumpkin decorating kit is a simple no-fuss pumpkin decorating activity, or, if your little ones love to paint, a simple pumpkin painting kit will do the trick! Check out how you can make your own DIY pumpkin painting kit. Yombu also comes to the party with child minders and entertainers who can guide the children through these and other activities, so that you don’t have to
3) The Food
Not everybody likes pumpkin, but you don’t have to serve pumpkin cookies and pumpkin pies if this doesn’t go down well with the guests. Orange foods like clementines, carrots with dip, and cheese and crackers can accompany favorites like brownies and cupcakes. However, you can sweeten things up with a DIY pumpkin spice cake or have an adorable pumpkin patch themed cake made by The Cake Mom & Co.
4) Have A Coffee Station
Make a healthier version of a pumpkin spice latte that doesn’t have too much sugar in it with this homemade recipe. If you aren’t keen on getting the children hooked on coffee too early – though you can serve decaf – add other cozy options like warm cocoa, or chai lattes. Put out some whipped cream, cinnamon sticks and extra cocoa powder for the kids to sprinkle on top. For more warm drink inspo, our favorite vegan blog Pick Up Limes, has some healthy, hearty drinks to keep you toasty. They are delish! Be sure to get the parents to rotate shifts at the coffee station so that you don’t get stuck playing barista all party long.
