  • Sweet & Girly Barnyard Birthday Party Inspiration

    Here's a little barnyard bash party inspiration for anyone looking to throw a traditional farm party with a sweet, girly twist. I had a lot of fun searching for a perfect mix of colorful, youthful and fun, but still dainty, mostly pastels & pink and totally girly farm party accents! I have quite a while before my daughter's birthday rolls around again, but after creating this board I'm secretly hoping she tells me she wants a farm party so I can create a party like this! Pink is a primary color for this style of party, but I love how you can mix it with so many accent colors like aqua, light blue, greens and oranges.  You can also go crazy with patterns for this - bandanna prints, polka dots, stripes, and of course - cow prints and lots of gingham check!

    OK, so here's what I found in my search that I loved the most:

    Our Barnyard Bash invitation is a perfectly adorable way to set the tone for your pretty in pink farm party. With lots of accent colors and cute farm animal illustrations, it really leaves for a lot of room in your color and decorating theme for your party. A photo of your little one outside, with green grass or a blue sky in the background makes for the perfect photo for the invite! 

    I always look for a cute, coordinating outfit although it's not a must have for a great party, it can be fun to have the birthday girl dressed for the occasion! The perfect party dress I found for this is by My Sweet Emma who has an Etsy shop with tons of cute dresses for little ones. You can find the dress I featured here

    The chocolate chip cookie mix favors inspired by Bakerella's would be such a cute favor to the kids or adults. I love any type of baking mix favors since they are cute and fun to make, and these are at the top of my list for some of the cutest I have seen! I also love all of the old fashioned milk bottle party themes and displays lately, and thought that these strawberry milk bottles in wood crates are so cute for this theme! As for the sweets, I adore the pink pig cookies I found at TSCookies on Etsy, plus the AMAZING farm cupcakes from Whipped Bakeshop! They were the cutest farm cupcakes I found using sweet pastel colors! So very cute! For something a little more involved but super adorable, the mini apple pies are a must have for the dessert or favor table! 

    For decor, I have always loved Martha Stewart's Bandanna Party and I thought it would be perfect for a girly farm party. The party blower wreath I came across on Silly Pearl's blog was so unique and the mix of patterns also fits well for this. At the end of the party, the little ones can take a blower with them - how easy is that? 

    Last but not least, the crafts and activities... I always love a cute party hat, and the adorable farm hats on Better Homes & Gardens' website were perfect! Pinwheels are always adorable and are very popular party accents right now, so they would be perfect as a craft for older children, or to make yourself to give out as favors. I loved the ones I found in Scrapafrass' Etsy shop. And I cannot explain how much I love the post on Oh Happy Day's blog for the Confetti Filled Eggs! This is such a cute idea and tons of fun for everyone! You must view the post on Oh Happy Day to see the amazing photos of how to make the confetti filled eggs, and the action shots of the game! Absolutely stunning photos and an adorable craft & game for everyone! 

    Hope you enjoy this post and inspiration board as much as I enjoyed creating it!  Happy party planning!
