Cowgirl Party on a Farm!

Last weekend we celebrated my daughter's 6th Birthday on a Farm! She had made it perfectly clear that all she wanted for her birthday was an awesome Cowgirl Party with real animals. I figured the Pierce College Farm Center would be the best venue to make her wish come true.


I spent a lot of time on the little details of this party. Everything had to be pink and I wanted to give her a really cute "Sweets" table. I made lips and mustache props and put them in wrapped mason jars to use as centerpieces on the kid's tables. I assembled pink bandana print favor boxes and filled them with cotton candy. I put together two dozen bags of popped kettle corn. I had a bunch of little bubbles topped with white ponies and I filled a small silver pail with cowgirl themed mini swirly pops. I also made favor tags for snack size bags of Pretzel Crisps that our guests could grab on their way out. DIY parties are a lot of work, but the end result is always worth it!

 
After all that prepping, I couldn't wait to see the party completely set up and ready for guests! It took two cars to load up all of our party supplies and head over to the Farm. Once we arrived I went into full blown crazy party Mom mode! I had 15 minutes to get everything unpacked and set up before our guests started arriving. I think the "Sweets" table turned out perfect! It was everything that my little cowgirl wanted and the look on her face when she saw the finished product was worth all the paper cuts and hand cramps!
 

The Farm turned out to be an amazing venue to host our Cowgirl Party! It was even better than I had expected it to be! Our party package included all of the following activities:
  • Feeding the animals in the Petting Zoo
  • Mining for Gemstones (the kids were allowed to keep all the gems they mined!)
  • Climb the Straw Pyramid
  • A private viewing of Spookley The Square Pumpkin Show in the outdoor Farm Theater
  • VIP Tractor Drawn Wagon Tour of the entire Farm
  • Souvenir Pumpkins from the Pumpkin Patch
The kids and parents had a blast running from one activity to another!


After all of those amazing activities, we had all worked up quite an appetite so it was time to get some chow and cake! The kids had fun playing with the silly props while they ate. We took a bunch of silly pictures and had the best time!

 
It was the BEST BIRTHDAY PARTY EVER!!!
