So if you haven’t figured it out by now, I’m Abbey and with me in this pic is my son, Andrew.
I blog for Carli, while she does all the great design work for DimplePrints–she’s so super busy…so that’s where I come in. My son is going to be two years old in October and I’m getting geared up to plan his birthday party. We’re not going crazy or anything, but I am going to make it very nice and fun for the occasion. Last year we used the DimplePrints baseball theme and it was a HUGE hit with the family, that’s how I got hooked on DimplePrints.
This year, we wanted to do something fun and different. My son’s birthday is October 28th and my husband’s birthday is November 1st. My husband is a HUGE lover of Halloween and really wanted my son’s party to be something Halloween related. I thought the Fall theme might work, but I thought it may be a little too “adult” for a second birthday. Then I liked the D.P. Halloween package, but thought it may be a little too scary for a toddler’s party. Then after some Pinterest searching, I discovered a theme I adored last year, but discovered too late. A CANDY CORN theme!! There are SO many fabulous things you can do with candy corn in the fall and I intend to use them for my son’s birthday. I created a Pinterest board with over a hundred pins on it for things you can do for a Halloween Candy Corn themed birthday. I’m going to share a few with you today.
