Now that I am getting the hang of this blogging business, I thought it was time to do a proper post about the farm party for my son’s third birthday.
We decided to go to Bocketts farm for his third birthday, as it always makes a good day out. Also, they organise everything so all I needed was the cake and party bags.
On their website, they had a picture of a pig in a party hat and that became the focus of the invitations and cake decorations. I have started accumulating Washi tape, so used some of it on the invitations. My son loves Charlie and Lola, so I used some of his stickers on the invitations. I decided to make them a circle folded into a semi circle, just because I felt like it really (obviously if this had been for a client there would have been a very good reason!).
My son’s requirements for his cake were that is was pink and that it was a cake! I followed the animals in hats theme and added tiny hats to plastic farm animals (it did cross my mind that I may have too much spare time!).
As the cake needed to feed 20, I made it into a four layer cake and dyed two of the layers pink to make it stripy inside. Here is the final result:
I also made some cake pops, covered in white chocolate, to keep everyone going until lunchtime.
The party guests fed big animals, stroked small animals, watched pig racing, rode on a tractor trailer and went home happy, so overall a success.
Thanks for reading.
