First Birthday-Farmer's Market
For this first birthday, the mom wanted a colorful, summery, mismatched party that centered around a Farmer's Market but wasn't too "themey." Who can go wrong with bright colors, a petting zoo and lots of great food? For entertainment for a variety of ages, I created some carnival games, like a ring toss. A mini ball pit inside kept the wee ones entertained, and the petting zoo was fun for everyone! The kids' table featured boxed lunches, while I highlighted the market theme for the grown up food with wooden platters and earthen bowls. Mom got crafty for the party favors and made animal shaped crayons, tied with a balloon.
