An Autumn Apple Harvest Party!

Thank goodness it's finally Friday! I hope everyone had a great week and is ready for the weekend with some fun plans. I know that this is much later than we normally post, but we've both been busy working, so it took a little longer than normal to finish today's project. Mostly because there are a few different parts to it. Today's project(s) go along with Tuesday's apple favors.
So, this is a pretty long post. There are quite a few pictures to it, too. We decided that we were going to do a "party pack", which, if you look on Etsy, is usually a whole bunch of printable images, and you put everything together to make a cohesive, matching party. We thought that instead of having to print everything out, it's not so bad if someone else does all of the work. I have never actually seen one of these "parties" in person, but I don't know, I just think this would add more *flair* to a party. If that makes sense.
To begin with, we created some invitations and thank you notes for our party. How cute are these?! They are multi-layered, which adds a nice touch. I love how the thank you note's tree is bare. All the apples were picked and ready to be made into a pie!!
So, the next few pictures aren't great, but I think they get the point across.
So, here's what else we included. We threw together a banner, which reads ""Happy Birthday", and the space is a bushel of apples. I actually love this color combination together, and it totally reminds me of fall and apples, and all that "good stuff"! We also designed some straw tags, bottle wrappers, and cupcake wrappers. We also made some cupcake picks and table tents.Here is they are all based on the same design, with four different apple images:
How cute are these designs?! I must say, one of the best feelings when we're crafting is having an idea and seeing it work out, and loving the final product. That's what happened here with these apples. They're all actually based off of the same apple, just with a few changes here and there, and voila- three different images!
And the last image we'll share with you:
These are the place card holders we created. You need to know where your guests will sit at the party, right? These place card holders will do just the trick. I cut out 15 apple shapes for each one and cut off the stems and leaves from them. Then, I folded them in half and glued them (on the outside of the fold) to each other. The card sits nicely on the apples and they add a cut little touch to the table. They could also be made bigger and used as decorations around the house.
Phew! Now time to start the next packs! We have a whole ton more planned, especially with the holidays coming up! Can't wait to start those! Anyway, thanks so much for looking! Come back tomorrow for another Cupcake Saturday!
