Barn Yard Bash!

If you can't go to the farm, bring the farm to you with a Barn Yard Birthday Bash!


Party Food: 

Amazing Party Cakes!

Corn on the cob cupcakes!
Place three cupcakes in green cupcake cups side by side with yellow icing on top. Use yellow and white jelly beans as the corn and place a yellow starburst on top as the butter. Put two corn on the cob holders on either side of the cupcakes for more detail.

Tractor Cupcakes!

Chex Mix can be transformed into Chicken Feed.

Pigs in a blanket is a fun snack for a Barn Yard theme.

Buy cow print plates and napkins. Mini hay bales are cute table centerpieces. Add a sign with a pig that says, "Pig Out" and glue to stick placed in hay bales for your Barn Yard snack table.

Rice crispie treats are now hay bales for your farm style party.

A cute idea for utensils is to label forks "pitchforks" and spoons "shovels."

Barn Yard Party Games: 

You can create a bean bag toss with any type of barn yard animal to stick with your theme. Pictured here is a Feed The Pig bean bag toss. 

There are so many variations of Pin the Tail on the Donkey for kid's parties, but with this theme you can use the original one!

Party Favors:

Printable barns you can fill with candy for guests.

Cow Tales candy is a cute way to says thanks for coming and show off your barn yard creativity.

Nautical Themed Baby Shower

Ships Ahoy! Create you own little sailor baby shower by throwing a nautical themed party complete with anchors, sails and down-by-the-sea entertainment. 

Get the guests in a sailing mood by creating the ultimate nautical experience. Line the party tables with fishing net and sailboats. Finish each table off with an assortment of starfish and sea shells. 

A creative way to fold silverware is by wrapping a blue napkin with brown rope and tying a life saver piece of candy to each set. Small details make your theme really come to life. 

Snack bars are a fresh twist on how to serve guests and you can really incorporate the nautical theme with a little imagination and the right snacks. Twizzlers can become nautical ropes, powdered donuts can become life preservers and chocolate chip cookies are now Ships Ahoy! Cookies. 

A life preserver wreath can easily be made for your nautical baby shower with foam and either ribbon or cloth. 

Get guests involved with party games! See how skilled each sailor is by timing a diaper changing challenge. Each person has to see how quickly they can change a diaper on a baby doll while blindfolded. 

These decorations can also be used after the shower as decor for a nautical themed nursery.  What a wonderful way to have mementos from the shower in the baby's room to remind you of the special celebration. One especially cute piece that serves this dual purpose is the subway art.  It would be great on a shelf with a group of boats or lanterns.  It could also be displayed at artwork on the wall Click here to get a free download of our two nautical subway art designs.
