Barnyard Bash

Oink, Baa, Moo, Parker & Piper are 2! 

Our sweet babies, just turned 2 and we had a barnyard bash to celebrate!  I have been planning this party for a few months and couldn’t wait to celebrate but we had a few minor snags along the way.  This was going to be an outside party complete with a barn, horse coral and lots of hay, but the weather didn’t cooperate and left everything soggy and wet so we had to have the party inside. 

When I decided on the theme “Barnyard Bash” I knew I wanted it to have a country feel without being to kitschy.  I  decided on burlap, denim, red and sunflower yellow as colors.  I found a pattern and made the girls these adorable knot dresses and had TONS of fabric left over so I used it as party decor.  I made a fabric banner, used it to cover hay bales and ribbon ties for the mason jars.
Food Table

 Lemonade Served in Mason Jars

 We served Pigs in a Blanket, Garden Veggies, Buffalo Chicken Dip, Chicken Feed (Chex Mix w/M&M’s), Chicken Nuggets, Milk Duds (in cow bottles) and Cupcakes.

I loved these water bottle labels…They say “Oink, Baa, Moo Parker & Piper are 2!”  I ordered these and the cupcake toppers from Printable Parties

Our makeshift horse coral.  We built a wooden coral, but it was too big to put inside.  I got the stick ponies at the dollar store and attached a tag with each kids name, these were also the party favors.

Happy Birthday Banner I made using my beloved Cricut!

Giddy Up!

 I had LOTS of fabric left over from the dresses I made the girls and decided to make some bean bags.  The kids had fun tossing them in the baskets (and a few even wanted to see if they were tasty.)

Since we couldn’t have pony rides outside the kids took turns playing on the saddle.  They all looked so cute and it kept everyone entertained.

 Happy Birthday Parker & Piper!

 Despite the rain and change in party plans, the kids had fun and I am thrilled with the results of our Barnyard Bash.  Now I just need to figure out what I am going to do with the 10 bales of hay in my garage and the horse coral in my backyard!  :)
