The past few weeks have been pretty busy with travels to Pittsburgh and getting ready for Owen’s big bash. I decided on a barn/animal theme for Owen’s party since he loves going to the zoo and seeing all of the animals. I wanted to get a petting zoo, but Tony wasn’t into that idea. So instead we got one of our friends who does children’s entertainment. She had story time, balloon animals, and a hedgehog – Erica Entertainment was great!
To decorate for the party I made animal centerpieces, got red and white gingham table cloths, 2 bales of straw, plastic barn doors, and a bunch of balloons. I also ordered some animal cupcakes for the kids as well as goodie bags and stuffed animals.
We had the party at our house, which is always a gamble with weather and all. Thank goodness it was a beautiful day and everyone could enjoy being outside. About 30 adults and a dozen little ones came out to celebrate. The little ones enjoyed story time and balloon making. They were super excited when the hedgehog came out :).
Even though Owen won’t remember his party I think he had a good time celebrating with his friends and family.
