Rustic Farmers Market Party Details:

This is what Louisa said about planning/styling the party- “We hosted a farmers market themed baby shower for my sister. We chose the theme because our dad is a farmer and my sister’s father-in-law has a stand at the very popular local farmers market. We used a lot of items from our father for the decorations – bushels, baskets, cans, jars, etc. I designed the invitation with hand-drawn colored pencil sketches of fruits and vegetables. A cut-out peach tag was included with the invitation card and we put a Jersey Fresh sticker on it — an ode to my future nephew’s New Jersey roots. The decorations included:
Lots of fresh produce in baskets and bushels
Antique watering cans
Wild flowers
Rustic terra cotta pots
Flannel shirt fabric strip garland
Vintage-style seed packet signs and banners
Old tin cans
Jars of canned veggies and fruit
Baby boy overalls
Chalkboard “Market is Open” sign
“Baby Barber’s Market, Est. 2015? wood sign
Potted flowers
Little child-size wheel barrow to display the favors
Wooden pig-shaped cutting boards
Muffins served in egg cartons
We used a lot of phrases that referenced babies — for example, “A-maize-ing baby boy!” and “Something wonderful is hatching!” We also displayed baby items like pacifiers, diapers and baby food jars in the classic berry produce pint baskets. And we used some baby toys for decorations, including a stuffed horse, fuzzy chicks, and toy tractor. The favors were bags of Goldfish crackers and Kix cereal, wrapped up to look like carrots and corn. I used the colored pencil artwork from the invitations for the favor tags, designed to look like vintage seed packets. It was the perfect take-home treat for the theme!

The menu included BBQ pulled pork sandwiches, pasta salad, bean salad, classic layered salad, corn muffins, fresh strawberries with ice cream, cracker toffee, and other nibbles. And of course we had veggies served along with hummus and dip in little terra cotta pots.

I took the photos and my sister Emily and I created all the decorations and made the food – a true DIY project!”
