Luke's Barnyard Birthday Bash

 Luke's first birthday party was SO much fun and he was the cutest little farmer! Here are a few of the little details!
This was the outside of the invitation - I wanted it to look like barn doors! 
Inside of the invitation - it's hard to see from this picture, but there were little farm animals in between the letters of the EIEIO....

Our friends let us borrow their awesome John Deere Gator Truck for our porch! I made the wreath by painting flat wooden farm animals and gluing them onto the yarn-wrapped wreath (Martha Stewart would not be impressed, but Luke loved the animals!)

What Farm Party would be complete without cow balloons on the mailbox?

The breakfast area was all decked out with Luke's "Happy Birthday" banner, balloons, and gingham table runner!
The fireplace banner said, "I Am One!" - note that we are good little football fans - SportsCenter was on and games were watched! 

For the dining room, I ordered vinyl wall decals for the little farm scene. The banner says, "Welcome to Luke's Farm!" I also had a horse, a sheep, and a pig/piglets that I had in other rooms. Luke loved pointing to all of the animals and "petting" them. I made a drum shade to cover the chandelier so the room would look a bit more farm-y.
Soooo much food! The cupcakes had little farm animal sprinkles on them.

We made cow-shaped brown-butter-white-chocolate-rice-krispy-treats. 

And what farm party would be complete without EIH2O? 

The birthday boy! 
 Luke wasn't quite sure what to think about his cupcake - he was so tired by this point, that I don't think he was into anything but a nap! He was a good sport and ate a little bit of the icing!

He LOVED the balloons - he kept saying "Bah!" (ball) every time he saw one! 

My very precious and sweet friend, Bea, dressed up for his party - isn't she awesome?
Daddy and Luke on the tractor! 

 It was such a fun and special day! It was so nice of so many of our sweet friends, family, and neighbors to stop by and wish our precious boy a Happy First Birthday! Happy First Birthday, sweet Luke!
