THEME & DECOR
This Barnyard 2nd Birthday Party was created and styled for the daughter of a very close friend. The party took place on a family farm in Ohio. The “vision” for the dessert table was based around a pie cooling in a farmhouse window (this is what I envision when I think visiting my grandparent’s farm as a child). The white barn and fences created the perfect backdrop for the dessert table and there was plenty of room for the children to run and play in a very relaxed/fun atmosphere.
We decided on a color palette of red and yellow – using gingham, stripes & lots of burlap. The old barn window was salvaged from a local hardware store and the many of the baskets, barrels and hay were all available right on location. To make the party a little more feminine we decorated the table with a rosette banner and added handmade burlap/fabric rosettes to the baskets.
For the dessert table we decided to tackle a few items on our own, including the mixed berry pie, chick & egg cake balls, apple cake pops, cupcakes and cherry pie cookies. The beautiful gingham & cow pattern oreos were from Sweeties by Kim and the Peach Cookies were made by a local bakery (so many people thought these were real peaches until they got up close, they even had a rum/nut pit inside)
