Hi guys! It’s been so fun guest blogging over here this week! I am beyond excited for Nole and Andrew and cannot wait to meet their newest little cutie pie! For my last and final Urbanic guest post, I’ll be sharing yet another birthday party we hosted, but this time for my younger son Ian who said he wanted his party to be “like a farm.”
Since Ian has an October birthday, the weather this time of year made the perfect canvas to serve yummy farm fresh foods. We had fried chicken, mac and cheese, buttermilk biscuits and a cranberry pecan salad. We also had the popcorn machine popping and some jars of red licorice around for the adults. We sourced a few giant hay stacks at a local feed ranch and decorated the yard to compliment them with blue gingham linenes, fall flowers and little plastic farm animals. We made tiny hats for the animals and placed them around the party, amd on the food tables to accent the arrangements.
We were so blessed that a good friend of ours made the adorable ‘pin the tail on the donkey’ game just for Ian! It worked perfectly when we put it into an old frame. We had a bandanna print hair-band which made it easy for kids to slide it off and on for their turn. After the party was over, each of the little ones took home a farm animal favor bag that we crafted out of brown paper bags and construction paper. It was a perfect day on the birthday farm!
Thanks everyone, I’ll be back again soon.
