A barnyard theme only seemed fitting for this 2 year old boy who had just mastered his farm and animals and their sounds. The main indoor room hosting the party brought a bit of the farm indoors with faux grass lining the floors, rustic farm tables, and hay bales. The kids table was a self made farm table with covered hay bales for the kids to use at seats. Each child received a "Gene's Farm" basket with sandwiches, a chip mix and apple juice packaged and label in mini milk bottles. The sandwiches were wrapped in cloth which then doubled as their napkins. To add to the seating area, we used a traditional blue and white check overly and created small bunches of flowers in cans with various vintage produce labels- all were different and unique. The adults had a farm fresh meal with pulled pork sliders, honey ham, potato salad, coleslaw, and watermelon. We also created a ice tea lemonade bar with two varieties of sweet teas and lemonade with the option for enhancement by adults. This was created using re purposed wine barrels and distressed wood pieces. Simply Perfect Events also stylized a sweet table using antique kitchen items collected from family members of the host. It was all set to a red farm fence backdrop complete with a windmill, tin rooster, custom birthday banner and signage. The sweet table showcased comfort, homemade style sweets such as- pies, banana chocolate chip bread, turtle brownies, chocolate cake, chocolate chip
cookies, and strawberry shortcake. After lunch, the kids dressed the farmer part with cowboy hats and bandannas and were set loose to play with farm animals brought on site- pot belly pig, lambs, ducks, a goose, bunnies, chicks, and pony rides. The guests took home with them a pre measured self bake cookie mix "Gene's Feed" in large Ball jars to bake a sweet treat on their own.
Touches that excited us most about this
fun party include the sweet table (which was bare at the end), the ice
tea/lemonade bar, the kids' table and centerpieces for the other
tables, as well as the food baskets for the kids. The animals, were of
course, a huge hit with the guests as well.
