On Sunday, October 14, we scratched off the final to-do on our renovation project list, bought some tasty food, created the party favors, organized the entertainment and had 150 people and over 50 groups into our home that day! It was a great time of meeting new neighbors and welcoming friends, family, and clients in to catch up with our family and celebrate the completion of our recent renovation. Even though the winds were present, the sun was out and we had a fabulous time!
As a gift from us, each family received a homemade jar of brownie mix to take home and use when needed.
We also drew names for those in attendance and gave away six prizes!
Conner Prairie 1-Year Membership: The David Family
2 sets of Ram Kids' Meal and Ben and Ari's Coupon: The Kerpsack and Blunk Families
$15 Orange Leaf Gift Card: The Hoener Family
YMCA $25 Gift Card and Guest Passes: The Murphy Family
$25 Bub's Burgers Gift Card: The Dalton Family
The tables were set and the centerpieces were arranged!
The fall decor welcomed the guests through the new front doors.
The banner was hung, the mums placed, and hay bails directed people to the front door.
The entertainment included a magician, the Kona Ice Truck, a balloon twister, and a glitter tattoo artist....the kids loved it!
The pinata was a big hit!!
Fruit, veggies, Conner Prairie dipped marshmallows, pretzels, and rice krispie treats; Paradise Cookies, sandwiches, and beverages....the food was a hit!
The kids had a make-your-own goody-bag bar. They selected from all types of treats and toys to create their own party favor bag.
We had "before" pictures put up to showcase what the home looked like in each room before the renovation.
The fire pit was in action and s'mores were ready to be made and eaten!
We also welcomed some of our trade vendors and set out sign-up sheets for our guests to get more info from them.
We thank these vendors for sponsoring a portion of the party:
Barbara Fisher with Stone Artisans
Mark Kuchik with Access National Mortgage
Phil Ennis with PJE Lawncare and Landscape
Amanda Wilson with Clay's Flooring
We totally enjoyed this event and are so thankful for all the people that took the time to stop by. The 2nd annual Irish Fall Family Fest will be in October 2013, so stay tuned for more details!
