Colorful & Rustic Farm Birthday Party

Colorful & Rustic Farm Birthday Party | happy together Michaels Makers Celebration Challenge | happy together
My year of being a Michaels Maker has come to an end. As a farewell to the last post of the season, all of us Michaels Makers created gifts, baked treats, and threw parties for each of the six holidays this summer. I chose to do a birthday party celebration for my challenge. I used my two daughter’s love for all things farm to create this colorful and rustic farm birthday celebration. (Everything I used is from Michaels unless stated otherwise.)

I had originally planned on doing a whole table setting, but with some weather issues and not being able to find certain supplies at my local store I went with a dessert/favors set up.

I found this box full of letters that you can arrange and put together in whatever saying you want. I did a happy birthday phrase, but the possibilities are endless. The best part is it can be reused and rephrased as much as you like. I added an old hat that I had found at a flea market above it.

I put the yummy desserts on top of a faux fireplace that my husband had made me back in December. We don’t have a real fireplace, so I enjoy using this one to decorate. And since it’s faux, I can move it around to where ever I might need it.

I used these moss covered foam blocks to place the cupcakes and cake on. The cupcake flower pots are actually made from a silicone that you can bake in. I just added store bought cupcakes, but these are great to be another reusable item. I also added some paper yellow doilies underneath the cupcakes (I found them in the scrapbook section).

I added some color pops by taping large scrapbook paper behind the food. It helps the food stand out more too. The popcorn is in cute little boxes. They are the perfect size for little hands. Plastic animals grace the front of the cupcakes as another little gift for guests. These were the nicer ones but Michaels is great at having a lot of plastic animal options in the dollar section for a more budget friendly option.

The cake is actually on a cheese plate. I tried finding a cake plate that would work, but this fit the look I was going for the best.

The bottom of the faux fireplace is filled with old books that I have purchased from a local thrift store. I took apart a hay wreath to add the hay around this area. It was a last minute idea and I was glad I had that wreath sitting around. I also added hay into the bottom of these awesome berry baskets.

The berry baskets are offered in a few colors and are the perfect little touch to place gifts in. I filled them with candy buttons, seeds, and an egg shaped chalk.

I stamped on guest names to the tags and then tied those onto paper straws. One was placed in each basket.

Then as a final last touch I added some paper streamers to fill in the blank space at the top of the fireplace.

You can head on over to Micheals for more project ideas and inspiration for Mother’s Day , Father’s Day, graduation, birthday and even summer. Let’s celebrate!
