This year my church did a big Fall Festival. It was awesome! There was a bounce house, hay rides, a bake sale & contest, food, games, & trunk or treat.
Along with contributing to the bake sale, we decorated our car for trunk or treat.
We dressed Cupcake as a cow for her first Halloween! I bought her pants online, her daddy made the onesie with some iron-on paper, & I made her headband from a dog costume. Semi-homemade Halloween costumes for the win!
Naturally, we had to be a cowgirl & cowboy to accompany Cupcake.
The trunk decoration was fairly simple.
A big toy horse, cardboard ‘fence’, some rope, & a blue sheet as the backdrop.
Cupcake was really the star of the show. Everyone got a kick out of the baby cow in the (play)pen! We had other toy farm animals in there, too.
For a little bit she was even in the trunk, too! It was a windy day, but there was not a cloud in sight & the sun was beating down. How crazy is it that Tropical Storm Felipe had passed really close to us just the night before?
I hand painted this ring toss game to go along with our trunk, but it was too windy to play. Also, I think my pegs were too short, which made the game super hard. Lesson learned!
We all had fun passing out candy & checking out everyone’s costumes. Cupcake loved all of the attention she was getting. Once the trunk or treat portion of the festival was over, we checked out the rest. It was an amazing production! Over 1,000 people attended throughout the day.
I’m very proud to say that the pumpkin chocolate swirl cake with pumpkin spice buttercream I entered into the baking contest won 3rd place!
It was a great day!
