My two-year old grandson’s favorite song is “Old McDonald had a farm”. He also enjoys books about farm animals, and just loves riding with his dad on a tractor, while mowing their lawn.
His mom knew exactly what theme he will select for his second birthday party, so it turned out to be “McAidan’s” Farm theme.
Today I will share some pictures of decorations and creative party foods, from that happy event.
The fireplace mantel held all the “near and dear” stuffed farm animals, which my grandson loves to snuggle up with.
The 7 foot high barn door wall decoration was creatively constructed by his mom, out of red wrapping paper, and white strapping tape, accessorized with cow print balloons, as well as few oversize cow and pig balloons.
His toy barn filled with farm animals, served as a center piece on the main food table.
All his friends were offered a cowboy hat and a bandana, to wear at the party, and to keep.
His daddy’s cowboy boots came in handy, and served well as an appropriate sign holder.
In addition to the hats and bandanas, the little cowboys/farmers left the party with a personalized bag filled with all sorts of goodies.
A large vessel with a convenient spigot, was filled with delicious lemonade, representing a pond full of swimming yellow duckies. What a great idea!
Part of the snack menu were Deviled Farm Fresh Eggs, as well as a variety of berries and veggies from the McAdan’s Berry and Veggie Patches.
Other munchies included Chicken Feed (trail mix), and a bucket of Hay (pretzel sticks), as well as
Hay Bales (Rice Krispies Treats), and Tractor Tires (Oreo cookies).
The main menu had an abundance of barbecue foods, salads, other desserts and beverages.
It was a beautiful day, so the very energetic two-year-olds, and some of their older and younger siblings, enjoyed many outdoor activities, including age appropriate sports, tractor rides, and most of all, an inflated water slide with a pool.
I had so much fun creating this post, and hopefully you enjoyed reading it, as well as getting fresh party ideas for that special little one in your family.
Please share your ideas with all of us. Thank you.
