Glam Barnyard Birthday Bash
This is what Krista shared about the party- “Living in a small town in the country, farms are literally all around us! Our family loves to visit our local farms to see the animals and pick whatever fruits or veggies are in-season. With how often we visit, it was easy to come up with this farm animal theme for my kids joint birthday party. I love planning parties for my kids, and I couldnt wait to celebrate their 3rd and 5th birthdays with this barnyard bash on our local farm!
[Decor] So, Im a monochrome type of gal, and color generally scares me a bit. But for this barnyard bash, I knew I wanted to go BIG with color and incorporate lots of bold and bright hues to make it something the kids would instantly love the moment they walked in to the barn. The dessert table served as the focal point of the party, and my favorite party find was the gold balloon lettering, which we used to spell out E I E I O. Confession: I love balloons! They are fun, they are playful, and I think its an unwritten rule that a partys not a party without some balloons! So for kids parties especially, I always try to incorporate them into the decor somehow.
[The Party Favours] We contained goodies in jars, and the lids were adorned with colourful farm animals which we spray painted in our garage a few days before the party. I love adding DIY touches! I wanted something pretty to contain the party favours, and I also happened to have a ton of mason jars left over from past events which I needed to get rid of one way or another. Win win.
[Games] So, I have to brag about my talented hubby John here for a second. With heavy rain and thunder showers in the original forecast, we knew wed need to get creative for some indoor party games! John decided to build a simple wooden horse for a farm-themed ring toss. Seriously! Cost about $6 total for all materials and it took him about an hour to build. The lasso was made from a hula hoop, and we glued some yarn around it for a rope-like effect. Easy peasy. We also made a huge, open-mouthed pig for a Feed the Pig bean bag toss.
[Flowers] A dear friend did the floral arrangements, and I adore how they turned out! We requested big, fun flowers and bright, happy hues. She used a mix of orange and yellow ranunculus, bright pink peonies and green hydrangeas, giving off total Spring vibes! The flower-filled jars also doubled as a party favor for the grown-ups ;)
[Lunch] The cute pig nose cups are another easy DIY! All you need are pink cups and a black sharpie! It was a fun (albeit silly) surprise for the kids at meal time! We also had crayon-filled jars, and butchers paper lining every table. Because who doesnt love to colour during lunch?
Despite the intense heat and humidity, it was a pretty fun day! I really enjoy planning parties for the people I love, and I look forward to coming up with something new each year.”
