Little Blue Truck Party on the Farm!

Last month, K turned 4. I can’t believe it y’all. My baby is FOUR!

To celebrate, we had a Little Blue Truck themed party at our favorite family-owned farm!

For good reason, our local family farm is K’s all time favorite place. So, it came as no surprise that he wanted to have his party here this year!

The Little Blue Truck books are a huge read in our home. The illustrations are beautiful and the story line always teaches a great lesson. To give K the ultimate farm party, we combined his love of the farm and Little Blue Truck to make a totally  awesome party!

When we decided on the theme for his party, I started collecting decor pieces as I came across them. Last Spring, Target carried these ceramic berry baskets in the Dollar Spot that I couldn’t resist storing in our party closet until the big day!

I designed all of the printables for the party myself. I couldn’t resist adding blue gingham to totally tie in our theme with the table covers I found online!

One of K’s favorite things about his party design were the jumbo animal balloons we tied to a chalk painted IKEA children’s easel that we’ve had for years! I found all of the balloons on Amazon! His favorite was the Jumbo cow but, I couldn’t choose between the horse, frog, pig, sun, pig face, and cow head!

Yes, I know what you’re thinking, we did bring them home as pets until the air fully let out, which was longer than either of us were comfortable with. Imagine waking up to a huge pig face balloon staring you in the face every morning for over a week. Yeah, That was my life.

These adorable cookies were made by the amazing Sarah of Aloha Cookies & Cakes. She designed these perfect animal cookies for our food table and created a perfect replica of Little Blue for each kid in their lunch baskets!

I’ve learned over the years, and about a million kids parties later, pre-assembled lunch packs are a life saver! It keeps fingers from smashing into snacks on your food table, and encourages your tiny guests to fill their bellies before playing and begging for cake time!

When I saw these berry baskets and linen napkins on Amazon, I knew they would be exactly what we needed to build the kids’ lunch packs! I assembled the packs with their cookie, a portion cup filled with veggies, a smaller portion cup with fruit, and a wooden fork tied in a napkin with light blue twine!

We served pulled pork in a crock pot so, I left the slider assembly to the parents!

After the littles ate, each of them were free to play! The family who owns the farm brought out their big farming toys out to take each kid on rides in their cow barrels! It was totally adorable and the hit of the party! K got out of his cow only a handful of times (for cake and presents, duh)!

They took the ride all around the farm, down to the orange groves, and back through the picking farm where everyone was able to pull up carrots to bring home in their plastic berry baskets that I found by Spritz from Target! (These baskets are only sold near Easter but, these are just as cute!)

Before we wrapped things up, each little adopted a wind-up baby chick and went home with a board book of K’s favorite in the Little Blue Truck series (Little Blue Truck + Little Blue Truck Leads The Way)!
