Fall Fest Caramel Apple Bar & Treat Gifts

I forgot to share pictures of our Caramel Apple Bar for our Fall Fest dessert.  


Fall Fest, Caramel Apple Bar


Katie wrote this adorable chalkboard sign.
We continued the fun fall theme with plate, napkins and gold forks.

I shared a picture of all the treat gifts they received throughout the day but I wanted to show each of them up close so you can see just how cute each item was.
We all love to get little surprise and delights don’t we.

Fall Fest, Paper Mug Treat Holder

This adorable paper mug is filled with a caramel popcorn mix with fall M & M’s and Rolos.  I love how “fancy” the mug it — it’s even sitting on a doily all fancy.  This was sitting with their Project Bag to greet everyone when they arrived at their seat.  These were pretty simple to make with some scoring and a few snips and strong adhesive to keep them together.  We used Garden Green cardstock and Painted Autumn designer paper (remember this designer paper is part of the Buy 3 Get 1 FREE Sale through end of this month).  We used Hug in a Mug stamp set for the adorable steaming mug and phrase.

We had 14 brand new Fall Fest attendees this year.  They each received this adorable post it note holder.
Now they can remember the fun they had for a long time.

Mid morning it was time for a little treat.  We cased the fall rectangle box from fellow
demonstrator, Erica Cerwin.

Fall Fest, Painted Harvest Stamp Set, Treat Box, Painted Autumn designer paper
A fun fall box with Pirouette Cookie Sticks inside — great with a cup of coffee or tea.
Cajun Craze is the base of the box.  We used another piece of the Painted Autumn designer paper.  The box and tag are stamped with the Painted Harvest stamp set.  The box is tied shut with the Jute Twine and we added little wooden leaves from the Touches of Nature Elements.

While everyone was eating we put these cute box holder cards at everyone’s work station.

Thick Very Vanilla cardstock is the base of the card.  We added Painted Autumn designer paper — acorns and yellow stripe, even the pumpkins are cut from the designer paper.  We filled the Clear Treat Box with Fall M & M’s and slipped that into the opening cut in the card base.


Fall Fest Preparations

Fall Fest was lots of fun — a lot of work went into preparing for the once a year event.  I thought I would share a few of the getting ready pictures and a little sneak peek at a couple of the treats they received.


Fall Fest, Loading Bags


Katie is helping get the project bags loaded.

Here is their place setting with the project bag and a little mug filled with popcorn treats


Fall Fest, Lots of Project Bags


The tables are all set up ready for everyone to show up.

Fall Fest, Lunch


We decorated the lunch tables with a fall theme too — clear lights down the center of the table, mini pumpkins, flower bunches — even the water bottles were decorated pretty.

Each place setting was so pretty and festive


Fall Fest, Project Bags & Gifts, Treat Holders


One last picture today — this is the project bag they received.  It had all kits for each project they did during the day along with a sheet of dimensionals (I’ll share the projects over the next few days).
I am sharing the little treats every received through out the day — the mug with popcorn mix inside, newbies received the post it note holder, the long box hold little pirouette cookies and the treat box card with
yummy M & M’s inside.

Come back tomorrow and see what projects they did.

Fall Fest Was Amazing!!

Sorry, I’ve been absent from posting.  Yesterday was my Fall Fest Mini Day Retreat hosted with my daughter, Katie.  We had an amazing group of ladies that we spent the full day with making fabulous projects.  We made 12 cards, 2 of them were fun fold cards, 1 framed art piece and 3 treat holders.  Everyone also received a take home project of 9 cards to assemble at home using the Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Card Pack.

Katie does the displays and treats for the day.  Here is the wonderful display she did this year — I just love it (though it created some allergy issues for a few – sorry).

Fall Fest Display

At every stamping event, Katie has to take a selfie of the two of us.  It’s fun to see from event to event — I am a proud mama and I’m so glad she can join me with this.

Fall Fest, SelfieOver the next few days I will share a few of the fun goodies we gave out throughout the day,  I hope you come back to visit.
