When our Assistant Jennifer’s son was about to turn 1, she told us in a
meeting that she wanted it to be special. We immediately sat down and
started throwing out concepts of all different kinds of party themes. To
our surprise, Jennifer decided Barnyard Extravaganza was the overall
concept and asked us to fill in the details.

Décor: We live about 5 miles south of the beach and as much as we would
like, there are no barns to be found out by the water. Hurdle number one
was that if you can’t find a barn, build one of course. The Entwined
Design crew headed to Lowes and purchased MDF and 1x4 to build the façade
of the structure. No need to buy gallons of paint. Simple paint samples
will cover about a 10ft structure and serve well at coating MDF. A shadow
box was created at the back of the structure to give dimension to the
barns window frame. We then headed to our local Pet and Feed store to
purchase Straw Bales for seating and covered them with bandanas for
comfort. Being that Jennifer does work for a florist, she wanted just as
many flowers as we did. Two large urns will filled to the brim with over
300 Teddy Bear Sunflowers and mixed with Seeded Eucalyptus and Smilax.
Lining the center of the tables were wooden boxes filled with Daisy Pom
Poms and Crespedia (Billy Balls). The Banners constructed above the cake
table “Yee Haw” and the “Gulp N Grub” were made by April of
www.eventsinspiredbylove.com . April also hand made the custom cupcake
toppers which consisted of Ducks, Horses, Sheep and Pigs. What party would
be complete with an adorable open barn invite and rope menu for your
guests.

Food: Jennifer’s amazing mother Laurie Hocker created all the fixins for a
delightful grub fest, including Cupcakes, handmade Piggy Pops, Cow Pops,
Ducky Pops and the beyond fun fondant cake. They also had amazing cookies,
handmade Apple Butter and Rice Krispie treats wrapped with red licorice.
Nothing better than eating hot dogs, baked beans, veggies and potato salad
while dining in front of a barn.
Jennifer’s guests wrapped up the day with a game of water balloon piggy
toss and pin the tail on the cow of course.  We hope that Jennifer and her
family had an amazing day celebrating the first year of life with her
amazing son Joseph. To all the guests that enjoyed the day, I think the
surprise shirt her son wore that read “Only child, expires Feb 2013” was
the icing on the cake of an awesome day! Happy Birthday Joseph Paul and
Congrats on the baby!  Can’ t wait to plan and execute another party.
