A Tractor Birthday Party!

This 2 year old boy's Tractor Birthday party was like no other! Right down to the unique details of custom made paper die-cuts of tractors to the clever party favors. I used wheat grass as decor and for the centerpieces on top of adorable custom blue and white table cloths. Straw farmer hats were the party hats of choice for this party! I served pulled chicken BBQ sandwiches, potato salad, fruit skewers and PB & J sandwiches in the shape of tractors for the kids. The dessert table showcased a royal blue tractor holding up the birthday boy's "2" topper on his cupcake. Dark chocolate cupcakes with vanilla buttercream were topped with crushed cookies for the "dirt" element. They were delish! The party favors were chocolate chips and gummy worms in adorable cellophane bags that read "Life's short...EAT DIRT!". The party favors were secured at the front door with clothes pins so each child could grab a bag as they left the party. This creative party wouldn't have been possible without Angelyn Harris who created and made all the paper banners, signs, die-cuts, etc. and Pam Schutte who made the cute table cloths. Thank you ladies! Also, some of the photos were provided by the very talented photographer, Dennis Dow.

How Sweet It Is
