1st Birthday Barnyard Farm Party

Old McDonald had a farm, E, I, E, I ,O!!  And on that farm he had and incredible first birthday party!

If you are looking for a fun and super cute birthday party for your little one, than you are going to love our farm inspired barnyard 1st Birthday, that we put together for little Francesco!  I just love how this party all came together with all the little details to make for a truly fun party!

The theme of the party was set with our Farm 1st Birthday invitation and Printable Party Set shown below.

The party took place at Orono Park, which was a great location for all the little monkeys who came, because there was a large outdoor splash pad, park and pool.  The outdoor scene added to the feel of being on a farm even though we were just a hop and a skip away from the city.

For the treats we decided to do farm animal inspired cupcakes with a small barn cake, “hay bails”, aka, rice krispie squares, apple pie pops (recipe below), apples, tarts, and candies.  The loot bags were these adorable animal cookies that came in a box that look like a barn.  It couldn’t have been more perfect.

I’ll let the pictures of this amazing party speak for themselves.
