This Duck Hunting Birthday Party by Lauren Haddox Design is seriously quack-tastic, especially for all the Duck Dynasty fans out there! The cute little duck hunters chowed down on “Duck Call Donuts” and more clever named breakfast foods (including a “Duck Feed” Cereal Bar!), played “Duck, Duck BUBBLES” and even got their own color-in hunting licenses. ;)
PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:
- Duck Call Donuts, Decoy Spread and Ducktail Coconut Macarons
- Swamp Water and MARSHmallows
- Burlap, Orange & Brown Color Palette and Rustic Wood Patterns
- “Duck Feed” Cereal Bar with Rice, Oats & Grain (and “Mallard Milk!)
- “Duck, Duck Bubbles” and Hunting License Coloring Activity
PARTY DETAILS, as told by Lauren…
Here’s something to quack about!! For William’s 4th birthday, we invited a few friends to join us at the duck blind for breakfast before the hunt to celebrate his special day. I picked up hot donuts from Mary Lee’s and offered a wide selection of tasty breakfast foods for the little hunters before heading out to the water. The “duck feed” cereal bar was stocked with RICE (Rice Krispies) OATS (oatmeal squares) and GRAIN (granola). We had mallard milk, goose eggs, strawberry decoy spread, wood duck waffles, swamp water, duck call donuts and more.
We had a craft table set up for everyone to color their duck stamps and put on their hunting license. They each got to shoot their limit and the duckpond and I couldn’t have a duck hunting party without a game of duck, duck goose.
One way to save on a birthday party is serving breakfast foods. I picked up a dozen donuts the morning of the party and purchased powdered donuts, frozen waffles and biscuits, a pack of strawberries and orange juice for just about nothing.
It’s all in the details, right?! I used patterned paper to make the bunting hanging in front of the table and poster board to make the shot gun shell garland. For the shot gun shells, I rolled red poster board and silver poster board, punched a hole on either side and ran twine through the holes. Most of the decor were things I already had around the house. The camo backdrop was purchased at Party Time for $7.99.
