Party Recap

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.

FOOD:
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)

The full list of sweets included:
- Mixed Berry Pie
- Apple Cake Pops
- Chick and Egg Cake Balls
- Gingham Oreos
- Caramel Apples
- Caramel Corn
- Piggies in the Mud (Chocolate Pudding)
- Spiced Carrot Cupcakes
- Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
- "Peach" Cookies (made to look like real peaches)
- Cherry Pie Cookies
- Moo-Oreos & Milk
