Often times when friends get together conversations can turn to work. To prevent that this year I had Small Moments create gratitude cards to spur meaningful conversations and to keep the conversation flowing away from work.
To create the glitter pumpkins I picked up some small white ones at the store, painted mod podge on them and sprinkled glitter all over the areas covered in mod podge. For the glittered acorns, I collected the acorns from a local park, painted the tops in Elmer’s white glue and sprinkled glitter over the glue covered areas.
Along with fall treats we enjoyed a glass of wine. To continue the plaid trend I bought some fabric and draped it over our ottomans. I don’t have a serving tray so I used a cookie sheet that I covered with wood themed paper from the craft store.
I ordered custom sugar cookies for the party because this party was all about being casual and relaxed. Ordering cookies instead of making my own saved me time and stress so I could focus on my friends.
Although this was a casual relaxed party I can’t help myself when it comes to the details. Besides the custom sugar cookies to match the party I also had labels for the wine created. For the napkin rings I tied twine around the napkins, cut out fall leaves and acorns from paper and attached them to the twine.
