I gave some behind the scenes planning details as I was busy preparing for the ultimate farm/3 Little Pigs party. I also shared the elaborate farm theme menu. Still, there is SO MUCH more that I haven’t had a chance to reveal about how Ezie’s third birthday panned out.
My brother sent me some previews from the multitude of photos that he has (and a I have few that I took myself). I am sure I will do some tutorials and craft related posts later, but for now I can’t help but pass along the highlights that I do have. This was one of the best parties I have ever thrown. I am so grateful that the weather cooperated and that we have so many laid back creative friends that could get into such a silly theme party! It was the best.
As I already mentioned the theme was farm, which was so perfect for a fall birthday party. We had a little photo, prop, and costume area that was a lot of fun.
I also came out dressed as a cow at one point (the things we do for our kids) and told the story of The Three Little Pigs, with help from some volunteers. I’ll have more pictures of that later, but for now here is a pic of the cutest big bad wolf you’ve ever seen!
We then had a house building contest and I think the kids could have spent days messing around with those cardboard boxes. The creativity was so impressive and it was such an economical game. I highly recommend this activity whether you are having a birthday party or not.
Okay, last one. I made party favor bags for each family instead of every kid this time. I already had the brown paper bags and I printed out the barn so I didn’t even have to buy any supplies. I also made printable stick figure families to glue inside the barns that I cut to allow for open and shut doors.
Like I said I’ll post more at some point, but when I got the email with those photos I couldn’t keep all the cuteness to myself!
I love the idea of the family goodie back – yours is adorable! Thank tou for sharing more photos of the farm party! It’s amazing that you had the energy to still put together such an amazingly creative party – at this stage of your pregnancy! Well done!!!!
It was the last hurrah. After that party I was done and had sworn off any more credit endeavors for the remainder of the pregnancy. 😉
WHAT A FUN MOM you are!!!!
So fun! The treat bags are adorable. I would love to come to one of your kids parties.
I love this! And your pictures capture so much.
You are so creative. Love your photo posts they are so much fun and give a peak inside to your world. 🙂
This is such a cute party theme! I can’t wait to have another little one and use some of these ideas. The cardboard house contest is pure genius! I love it!!!! Great party!
I love all the houses they built! What a great idea! Looking forward to more party posts 🙂
Kids who are born during the time of year when you can have an outdoor party are the luckiest kids ever!
Kids are like cats: they are perfectly happy with boxes.
And the family gift bag is simply brilliant.
This looks so fun!
Everything looks so great Natalie! I so love the idea of a house building contest, I don’t know any kid that wouldn’t have a blast doing that!
Too cute!!! I love the farm theme and those goodie bags are just adorbs. I would have loved this theme party when I was a kid!
