The Farm Party: Details

We took a lot of time making and prepping for the party.  The joke was it was about 20 hours of prep and about 1.5 hours of party… isn’t that always the case?! 🙂  It was so fun to see the little party details come together and there were definitely “hits” of the party.  Especially the cow marshmallow fruit pops and the animal cupcakes.

While I am not on Pinterest (we all know I would be addicted if I was), we got inspiration for lots of the party ideas online just by googling “farm birthday party” and looking at the images that popped up.  Also, Heidi’s friend owns a company Quite the Occasion (in Charlotte), who helped provide the food tags, welcome sign, directional sign (which was so cute and I didnt get a picture of it) and the “photobooth/station” farm background. I’d definitely recommend them if you want help with your next party!

It was a spectacular way to celebrate two special boys first birthday!

P.S. I know this is long with tons of pics. Sorry!! (if you want more detail, I believe if you click on a picture, you can navigate through the larger format)

These were animal cracker sacks for the hayride.  We forgot to bring them out and instead turned out to be more takeaways!

The giveaways were stencils, a sticker page (rolled up) and a farm lollipop.  We also gave away bandanas to each kid.
