Invitations were so fun to make..layer, layer layer!
|Kraft paper for the cards.|
Piggies-from Create a Critter cartridge.
Barn-from Country Life cartridge
The party food table was filled with pigs in a blanket, corn on the cob,
|I found some cute muddy images on google images |
which I printed and put in some old wooden frames
for easy and cheap table decorations. My scrapbook stash
came in handy for a barn scene on one of the buckets.
|We rounded up any metal buckets we could find, and added rafia for a vintage farm look.|
The piggy cupcakes were so fun and easy! I ordered piggy squirters from Amazon for party favors. We added them to the top of the cupcakes and then drizzled chocolate fudge icing (while it was warm) over the top for the mud. A wooden tray was the perfect piggy corral.
Chocolate fudge icing recipe:
1 stick of butter
4 Tbsp cocoa
6 Tbsp milk
Heat to boiling
Add 2 cups of powdered sugar
Mix with a mixer until smooth
We filled up a plastic pool with bags of dirt we bought from the garden center.
We wanted to make mud but it was too cool for the kiddos to be wet.
Michael cut out a barn using a projector which we painted barn red of course!
We added a bale of hay, an old washtub and viola...
A cute photo back drop for pictures of all the party guests.
That is how to do a muddy piggy party which makes a really happy two year old...
And we all know that having a HAPPY two year old is PRICELESS!
