Annika celebrated her 2nd birthday this weekend, and her mom, Melissa, knew that baby farm animals and bright colors were essential for their outdoor BBQ party.
Invitations were bright red farmhouses (with sweet Annika peeking out of the top window) with pop-open doors to reveal party details inside.
Melissa found a great checkered tablecloth, and we helped to tie the theme together with some colorful accents, including a name banner with colorful gingham print.
Mason jars with red gingham ribbon were perfect for storing silverware (brilliantly cute idea from Simply Suz)
We topped off some of Melissa’s amazing cupcakes with cute farm animal cupcake picks.
And probably the most fun Little Sprout creation to make ever, farm animal tissue poufs. A cute piggy, bunny, chick and cat, in Annika’s favorite colors, ready to decorate the table in terracotta pots with red gingham ribbon.
We designed a special shirt for Annika, and some (awfully witty if i say so myself) thank “ewe” cards.
To thank their guests, Melissa decided on an amazing giving favor, donating a flock of chicks in each child’s name through Heifer International. We attached a small tag to colorful bandanas to let them know how they’d be helping kids across the world. Way, way cool.
