Party Recap

I threw a small Thanksgiving get together for my children and 4 of their friends. My inspiration was my native country of Brazil where corn is a big part of our fall celebrations. We have a celebration called Festa Junina where corn is part of many of the sweets and decorations. I used corn husks to dress up the water bottles and to display and serve the food. Sweet treats included caramel and kernel popcorn, corn bread, cookies, jello treats and candy corn. To complete the look of the party, I used the free Fall kit from Paper Glitter. The kids each had a place mat for coloring and made Gooble Gooble paintings using their thumbs and finger tips.
I also want to have a “green” party using recycled items to serve and display the food. I was able to use tin cans to serve the popcorn, glass jars for the jello treats and TP roll for favors.
For the back drop, I used a simple curtain panel{clearance for $2.50} tied with some raffia and sunflowers. The decorations were very simple; I picked some brunches and lightly sprayed with orange spray paint to make our Thanksgiving tree. I added some baskets from Brazil made out of corn husk, small scarecrows, and silk leaves and pretend corn around the tables to complete our Fall theme.http://crissyscrafts.blogspot.com/2011/11/fall-feast.html
