Weston’s Backyard Barnyard Bash

Even in the sweet Georgia south, when you schedule a birthday party for mid-February, you do not expect a spot-on perfect 70-degree day brimming with the first sunshine of the year. It was incredible.

But let’s start with the important stuff: the food table. Because Weston looooves animals and animal sounds, we decided to work the farm theme. Can I say how much I resisted going with this theme? It’s just been done a hundred times way better than I can do – but what can I say. The kid loves it, and he wins.Andy and I stayed up late one wild and crazy Friday night to make this farm banner out of butcher paper.

I love how the little farm boy looks exactly like my little farm boy.

We topped the food table off with red gingham table cloth and lots of goodies, like veggies and hummus:

And these fantastic little chickie brownie bites. My sis-in-law was sweet enough to make these using this plan. They were SO cute, all with different faces and “emotions.”

If you’re noticing a trend here, it’s that I had lots and LOTS of help. I would recommend that no one ever throw a child’s birthday party without my family on hand. I will ask them their going rates and get back to you. Seriously – life savers.

Ashley helped make this bunting with scrapbook paper and twine, which we strung up around the house.

Because the weather was GORG, we had to find an outdoor seating solution for our guests. Enter: haybales, covered with tablecloth. I thought it worked perfectly.
