Barnyard Birthday: "Pigs in Mud" Chocolate Fudge Pots Recipe

Any dessert looks cuter in pots or jars, right? I can totally understand the fascination of potting sweet treats (including cupcakes...) - It's portable, super cute and is much easier to display!

So at my kid's barnyard birthday, instead of serving my homemade chocolate fudge in cups, I used dinky little jam jars, fitted with even cuter red gingham lids! :)

Barnyard Party: DIY Toy Horse Photo Props


For my kids Barnyard Birthday Party last year, I wanted to make retro, child toy horse photo props, which doubled as party games and favors too!

Though I live in the country near lots of farms, not all of us can afford real stallions...So this wooden version using paper printables, was a quite a fun alternative - Not to mention quick to make!

CAKE IT PRETTY: DIY Apple Cake Pops + Centerpiece Display

I'm an advocate for hand-made, and don't care who knows it. BUT I also don't have a lot of time and like any working mom, budget is always at the forefront of my party planning.

And last year for my kid's joint Barnyard Birthday it was no different. I baked, crafted and handmade a lot of the details, including these Apple Cake Pops and mini "Farm Orchard" Centerpiece display for the pops...

Cake it Pretty: Farmhouse Apple and Berry Pie Recipe

Following on from yesterday's Barnyard Birthday post, this is the recipe for the "Farmhouse Apple and Berry Pie" I made instead of a birthday cake!

I always like to incorporate a lot of handmade details in my styled parties, but this time around I was also in full prep for Bird's Party Magazine Fall Issue, and hence my shortcuts - Instead of a fancy decorated cake, I opted for a farmhouse-style, rustic fruit pie for my kid's Barnyard Birthday this year. I'm no Nigella, so "rustic" is the operative word here! ;)

Farm and Barnyard Birthday Party Ideas: My Kids' Joint Barnyard Birthday Party!

Farm and Barnyard Birthday Party Desserts Table

I love thinking of fun, unique ideas and twists on popular birthday themes, and it was no different for my  children this year - We always have a joint party as they were born on the same day but two years part, and the Barnyard Farm Theme was a perfect solution for their 5th and 7th birthday celebrations!

I did snap loads of pics a usual, but below's a taster of the day...Oh, and because I made a lot of the stuff by hand, there'll be some tutorials coming all this week! :)
