Tips for a Fall Harvest Scarecrow Party

Happy September! It's getting to be that time of year.. nights are getting chillier, sunflowers are in full bloom,  and stores are filled with all things fall and Halloween.   

One thing that I always associate with fall is scarecrows.  I am not really a fan of the scary type of the scarecrow, but I love a cute one.    Over the years some of my favorite fall crafts have actually been cute scarecrows.  

Pictured above are my scarecrow and crow pumpkins which are part of my Dollar Tree Pumpkin Gang

A few years back on my blog I share a post Scarecrow Party Ideas. It was definitely a fun post to write, but since some time has passed, I wanted to give it an update. 

One thing you definitely need to have at a party is food.  A fun way to serve the food, is by allowing the kids to make it themselves.   When a child makes their own food, they actually enjoy it more.   One thing nice about making scarecrow snacks, you can make them with whatever your want.  Every scarecrow is a put together with pieces of things, so why not your snack.  We made this scarecrow snack from an English muffin, a cream cheese and mayo mix (like on a veggie pizza), veggies and a cheese hat.   You don't have to use only English muffins, instead you could use tortillas, biscuits, or even  bread cut in a circle, which ever your guests prefer.

Here are some other food items you could serve 

This Scarecrow Party mix is the perfect mix of sweet and salty.  You can see the full list of ingredients we used here.

These Scarecrow Cookie Pops are not that difficult to make and definitely have the cuteness factor. The full recipe on how to make these can be seen here.  

Some other items you might like to serve can be found on these websites. 

Scarecrow Veggie Pizza from Taste of Home
Scarecrow Taco Dip from Betty Crocker
Scarecrow Cookies from Betty Crocker
Easy Scarecrow Cake from Betty Crocker

You also need some decor for you Scarecrow Party.  I love using all the usual fall colors of yellow, orange, red and brown.  

Another favorite fall craft of mine is my Pringles Can Scarecrow. I like to set it out every year.  It is really cute and can be used as both as a treat box and decor. The post will the full instructions can be found here.

Oriental Trading had some Scarecrow craft kits perfect for a party. 

When hosting a party I like to have something that can made at the party, and then taken home as a party favor. These Scarecrow wreath kits come in a set of 12 and would make a great party favor. You can find out more about them here.

If you prefer cute crows to scarecrows, the crow magnet kit may be more your style.  You can see more about them here.

Of course there is always my favorite standby for party items, the Dollar Tree, which has many types of scarecrows and supplies at both the regular and plus stores, in store and online.

 How cute is this Scarecrow Inflatable from Amazon?!  It would definitely get lots of attention and your Scarecrow party and into the Halloween Season. 


I hope this post has given you some fun ideas for your Fall Harvest Pary!
