I had nothing to do with this cake (except for the consumption of it..YUM). I added a butterfly and bird from a template I (frustratingly) hand-drew. I used some Stampin' Up! and Amy Butler paper and added a little ribbon to some Wilton lollipop sticks I bought from Walmart.
Isn't she a hot mama?

My preschooler has had a great time exploring the different shapes and sizes of pumpkins, leaves, walnuts and other natural things on our pumpkin patch adventures.
On Saturday, we went to an apple/pumpkin farm called Abel's Apple Acres in Apple Hill (outside of Placerville, CA). We had an absolute blast with the pony rides, photo opportunities, apple goodies, etc. If you live anywhere in Northern California, go there and have a great time! I would highly recommend taking a trip during the week because the traffic and crowds can be unbelievable!

I decided to make the invitations with the bedding in mind because a baby bird theme is so fun and birds are so hip right now. I'm going to use feather boas as table runners and make some paper butterflies to hang around. I have a ton of milk glass vases and cups to fill with fresh flowers. Here are the invitations I put together:
