I’m finally getting around to posting about Sam and Tucker’s birthday party which was about a month and a half ago.
We did a joint party at our house. I went with a farm theme because both kids love tractors.
I had most of the food catered from the Market District which was great! I ordered a ton of mini sandwiches, fried chicken and a caprese salad. I ended up ordering way too much because I was worried about not having enough. I think we ended up having about 45 people to the party.
I made a fruit salad to go with the catered food. In a pig 🙂 Pinterest.
My mother-in-law made a lovely cheese plate:
We had the party in the backyard. The weather ended up being nice but windy. That gazebo came down about 4 times prior to the party… Aaron ended up nailing and zip tying it directly to the deck.
I set up a piggy bank painting table for an activity and the favor. I ordered the piggy banks from Oriental Trading.
We set up a kiddy pool in the yard and the water table. I made that plaid fabric banner for the party and it’s still hanging outside. They’re sewn together on a strip of bias tape which made it pretty easy.
Here’s a closer picture of the pig table:
I found these pinwheel straws at Target in the dollar section. Unfortunately I don’t think most people realized they were straws. I loved them though. Target gets me.
Aaron built this barn for a photo back drop in the yard.
Singing happy birthday:
I tried three different chocolate cupcake recipes to find one I liked. I ended up using my favorite chocolate cake recipe for the cupcakes. I also made rice crispy treats (bales of hay) and brownies.
It was a really fun party! And the gazebo made it until the very end when the wind picked up and it went down 😮
