{drumroll} After weeks of anticipation, the lil’ piggy is proud to feature the second party in…

If you missed Monday’s blog post, The Piggy Bank Parties Crew is facing off in a Head-to-Head Team Challenge. Read all of the details here. Yesterday we saw the Sassy Spring Chickens’ challenge entry which was adorable! You can see their party here. Both teams did an amazing job on their parties and I’m thrilled to share our second entry from the other half of our Crew, The Barnyard Babes.

Without further ado, introducing…

The Barnyard Babes are excited to share the BARNYARD BUDDIES BRUNCH, our interpretation of the adorable Piggy Bank Parties’ Barnyard Buddies Collection.

We decided to celebrate friends with these fun barnyard animals at our Barnyard Buddies Brunch and planned a barnyard play date. Where would you host such a fun play date? A farm with a cute little red barn, of course! Our play date friends were invited to join us for brunch and fun at Nash Farm, a historic working farmstead.

Brunch was set up next to the little red barn and the table was anchored with a custom table cloth complete with denim pockets, made by the talented Aimee Broussard. The pockets held napkins, paper straws and the utensils for the party. Aimee also made a beautiful barnyard inspired Aproness for the party hostess.

 Brunch included Baaa-nana Bread Pops, Piglets in a Blanket, Morning Moo Pies, Chicken Feed, Piggie Mud Pudding, Fresh Fruit and Mooo-licious Chocolate Milk.

Store bought marshmallow pies were transformed into Morning Moo Pies with cow print fondant toppers made by Mariah from Giggles Galore.

Little piggies love to wallow in the mud and these fondant piggies from Lynlee’s Petite Cakes loved their chocolate pudding mud bath!

Fresh banana bread was given a trendy new look and made adorable Baaa-nana Bread Pops, which were displayed in a small bale of hay.

Even the store bought treats looked tastier when displayed in farm fresh containers like the strawberry baskets from Bake It Pretty and the chicken wire basket from Giggles Galore’s personal collection. The little party tags were tied to the chicken feed scoop, push-up pop containers and display pieces for a little extra pizzazz.

A small table was set for our play date guests to enjoy their treats. We used denim scrapbook paper as a table runner and added a small bale of hay, little cowboy boots, milk bottle with sunflowers and a welcome sign attached to a chicken wire frame made by Cineca from Dreamin’ N Details.

Each place setting was customized with a name tag and adorable custom cow print milk bottles made by Mariah from Giggles Galore. The Barnyard Buddies found a straw cowboy hat hanging from their chair which also doubled as a party favor. Custom barn favor boxes were also placed at each seat and filled with M&M’s and little chocolate sheep made by Mayra from In Flight.

Yee-haw for party games! An old wooden wheelbarrow held burlap sacks and bean bags at the activity station. A fun Yee-haw banner was strung on twine and hung from the front of the wheelbarrow. We had an old-fashioned sack race and a bean bag toss competition to keep the kids entertained.

 

There was so much to explore on the farm and the kids enjoyed driving tractors, looking in the chicken coup and talking to the cows! Our sweet little barnyard friends took home their little barn favor boxes and a “thank moo” cow print bottle with M&M’s.

 

Thanks Ya’ll for letting us share our Barnyard Buddies Brunch collaboration!

A big thanks to the Barnyard Babes team for all their hard work and contributions as well as our fantastic sponsors!
