So many awesome ideas here! Some of my favorite elements of this Dukes of Hazzard party are:
The pie tin cake stand
The vintage wooden soda crates
The vintage car cake
This is what Mariah said about planning this party- “This ‘Dukes of Hazzard’ Birthday party was an instant hit amongst the little kids as well as the adults. Reminiscent of the hit television show from the 80’s, the theme brought a nostalgic feel to this little boy’s birthday party. His dad’s favorite show growing up was the ‘Dukes of Hazzard’, so what better way to bring the old into the new! It was important to include all things ‘Dukes of Hazzard’ from the hay bales to the vintage wood barn door. It was a classic part of the show where cousins Luke and Bo would jump the car over hay bales and through barn doors. We also included old tires, vintage gas tanks, a custom vintage lunch menu and we cannot forget daisies honoring the infamous Daisy Duke.”

Here’s what Benny had to say about photographing the party- “Kids grow up so quickly, especially when it comes to this little fellow. A year ago, I was asked by Ruth to photograph her newborn son, Edrei. So, when I was asked to be the photographer at his 1st Birthday party, I couldn’t believe a year had flown by! It was a very fun and exciting party, even as an adult, I must admit I had fun myself! The details and decorations for this party were amazing! Everything was so colorful and vivid! The farm theme for this party was perfect, especially since the party was located… well, at an actual barn. Everything tied so perfectly together and I’m sure this party is one the children will never forget. Ruth is an amazing party planner who most definitely will not disappoint!”

This cute LITTLE FARM SECOND BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Susan Macieira from Brazil! All the little barnyard themed treats are so darling!
Susan said this about planning the party- “I prepared this party to celebrate my son’s second birthday. I tried to mix traditional Brazilian farms and common things on my table, such as compote sweets and cheese making. I had the help of incredible vendors with particular techniques such as the modeling sweets like the bird in the cage. Totally edible.”

This super cute CLASSIC COWBOY BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Mariah Leeson of Giggles Galore. I just love the charming farm party theme…this one in particular is full of ideas & inspiration!
This is what Mariah said about planning the party- “Yee Haw! Saddle up partners because it’s time to celebrate a special buckaroo with this Classic Cowboy Birthday Party!
I recently had the pleasure of styling this cowboy themed party featuring printable designs from Lauren Haddox Designs. This classic cowboy party package included rustic details and a cheerful color combination of blue and red. I used neutral tones with the hay, burlap and wood to highlight the design and create decorations for the party. I rounded up a collection of cowboy themed props and borrowed a few items like the saddle and rope to create a party fit for a cowboy. Guest could fill their pie tins with classic cowboy grub including pork sliders, cornbread muffins, baked beans, wagon wheel pasta. At the Waterin’ Hole guest could wash it all down with water, old fashioned root beer or fill their glass jars with lemonade. Even cowboys have a sweet tooth and the little buckaroo’s could enjoy S’mores Marshmallow Pops, Popcorn Balls, cupcakes and chocolate candy. Before they saddled up and rode home each little buckaroo received a burlap sack filled with sa lt water taffy, a red bandanna a toy horse and a cowboy hat. The bigger cowboys and cowgirls took home a cornbread muffin mix in Mason jars (one of my favorite elements from this party package.)”
