When designing this table, I started with a concept for the backdrop. We made a barn silhouette shape out of foam core & felt (see the tutorial here), then added a pair of DIY Painted Barn Doors to the front. Felt/burlap garlands on either side of the barn added a celebratory feel, and artificial grass was used in lieu of a linen.
We made a few of the farm-themed treats at home (in other words, the easier ones!), which included the pig pie pops, hay bale cakes, chocolate-covered strawberry “carrots”, and “animal feed” trail mix.
For the more difficult treats, I turned to a couple of incredibly talented local vendors. The insanely cute cake pops were crafted by The Mad Cake Pop Shop, and the tier cake, which had such a fabulous, modern-meets-adorable vibe, is the work of Stevi from Hey there, Cupcake!. I love how she wrapped both tiers in patterns from the farm party paper collection too. :)
I really loved how these homemade pig pie pops turned out! Aren’t they fun? ;) We followed the general idea from this post, but modified the design slightly to make it easier. My friend Jacque also tied teensy little bandanas onto the sticks for the finishing touch!
I was totally smitten with these chicken cake pops! We displayed them in wood berry baskets filled with floral foam, and used toasted coconut “hay” to cover the foam.
