Harvest Party Fun

IMG_1080[1]The Harvest Party this year was fantastic fun and there was a huge attendance. We were very busy in the lead up to the big day, a lot of advertising was done, helpers were enlisted and organised, the lamb sausage recipe was perfected, several times!

We had great fun decorating the Market Barn, Eleanor helped me making lovely harvest decorations from purple corn which we hung everywhere.




We had a corpse, well he was a dead looking manikin, who greeted everyone at the door. He looked more alive when he was touched up by a mystery face-painter.





I, personally, was very pleased and surprised at how well the pony painting went and how much the kids enjoyed meeting the pony! 


She went from snow white to rainbow spider pony in a few hours, and looked bit a perplexed about the whole situation.




All the children seemed to have great fun in the arts corner and the pumpkin carving did get a little bit competitive! The fancy dress costumes were only brilliant, from both kids and adults and lots of prizes were handed out for that and various different things like art work and winning games. Unfortunately the weather was slightly against us so the welly boot throwing competition was cancelled, but then it turned out to be a lovely day.



The traditional Halloween games that I would have grown up with went down a storm although I’m not too sure if anybody was successful, without cheating that is!!


We received great compliments for our lamb sausages and the barbequed sweetcorn was really delicious and a nice way to round off the harvest season.


Probably the hit of the afternoon was the seven Jack Russell puppies that arrived to play with the kids and look for the forever homes! Nobody could resist their sweet faces!!

A very sincere thanks to everyone that helped and to everyone that turned up to enjoy the day. I hope we have just as much fun next year, next stop is the Christmas Market on Saturday 13th of December, see you there!!
