It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown | Halloween Party IdeasOctober 01, 2015
Are you anticipating The Great Pumpkin's arrival?! It has long been a tradition in our house, to watch It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown on Halloween night! I watched it as a child, and I happily introduced my children to the fun and excitement of The Great Pumpkin!
These darling cake pops were made by Bella's Bakery & Bowtique. Seriously cute! She captured the characters & darling pumpkins, perfectly!
Do you recall the scene where Charlie Brown & Snoopy are raking up a big pile of leaves? And then Linus, while holding his sucker, runs full speed and jumps into the big pile of leaves! I covered large suckers with some artificial leaves, to represent that very scene.
Our Charlie Brown goblin was placed near The Great Pumpkin patch, overlooking our party table. We set out Great Pumpkin Cookies for our guests, and awaited The Great Pumpkin's arrival.
A small welcome sign let the Great Pumpkin know that we were anxiously waiting for him to rise out of the pumpkin patch!
Here I set out a tub of water, and added several red apples. The guests had a great time taking turns as they bobbed for the apples, and tried to pull them out with their teeth; just as Lucy did when her lips accidently touched "dog lips" - Yuck!
I found these darling pumpkin cookies at my local Starbucks. I spotted them in their dessert case and knew they would be perfect for our party. If you take a look towards the pumpkin patch, you can even spot Linus' blue blanket.
Will you be waiting to see if The Great Pumpkin rises out of the pumpkin patch this year? I know we will... just like I did when I was a kid.
