This party was so much fun to do! OK, OK, enough with all the rhyming.
We partnered up with Marci from Entwined Design for another awesome event. If you haven't guessed it yet the theme was Barnyard Farm Animals for a 1st Birthday. This special little one has already had 2 designer events and he doesn't even know it yet. JP was the the lucky guy to have this sweet blue and yellow elephant themed baby shower.
We were thrilled to be making some super fun, crafty and creative products for this event. The ED team worked hard in constructing the A.MAZ.ING barn scene setter. We just knew a pennant style Yee-Haw banner would be perfect to hang from it to serve as the back ground to the sweets table.
The sweets table was so yummy it was hard to keep our sticky fingers away while decorating it with wood crates to hold up the barn animal cake pops and rice crispy and twizzler hay bales. Wood planks were used to display the cupcakes with our adorable little animal toppers (there were 5 of them: horse, cow, pig, chick & sheep). Old fashioned milk bottles were on display with cow spot paper straws. Vases of daisy pom poms flanked the two tiered farm themed cake. This cake has to be one of the cutest I have seen. The sides had trees and sheep and cows and clouds but I have to say the cake topper was my favorite and cute little oink oink piggy was ridding in the back of a blue pick-up truck.
Guest tables consisted of multiple 8 foot long tables covered in red and white gingham, we took away the normal chairs and added in bales of hay covered with bandanas for comfort. Each guest was given their own straw hat at their place setting which also had cow spotted plates and cups with utensils wrapped with bandana napkins tied with strings of hay. Two extremely large urns were filled to the brim with over 300 Teddy Bear Sunflowers and mixed with Seeded Eucalyptus and Smilax. Also, lining the center of the tables were wooden boxes filled with Daisy Pom Poms and Crespedia (Billy Balls).
The birthday boy had a special seat just for him that was designated with a birthday cowboy sign hung with hay. Another pennant banner labeled the food and drink area as "Glup-n-Grub". A birthday invitation and menu were also created to finish out the Barnyard Extravaganza.
