Graham's County Fair Birthday


I've been beyond excited to show off this County Fair party from Michele of Cakewalk Baking, and the moment has finally arrived! This one brings me special joy because I designed the invitations and CD favors, and was on hand for the big day to help out and take pictures alongside Michele and photographer Sherry Heck.

I can't say enough good things about this party. Believe it or not, it was pouring down rain outside, but in the end that only served to enhance the rustic moodiness of the day. Michele is a professional baker, so she created all of the gorgeous (and oh so yummy) cakes and treats on the dessert table herself... not to mention hand crafting the tags, prize ribbons, onsies for the babies and even sewing the bunting above the table from a vintage tablecloth. She also made sure everyone was well entertained playing carnival games, eating popcorn & corndogs and decorating cookies. Frankly, she's a party planning genius... I can't wait to collaborate with her on some future projects!

I just love how laid back the photos feels, makes me want to pull up a chair and watch the fun. Very nicely done!! (November 5, 2010 at 7:09 AM)  

This is such a great idea for a party, but the details are also very well thought out. However, it still looks like you made it fun for the kids, you didn't just throw a party all about you and your vision. (I just watched Beverly Hills housewives where the mom threw a $50,000 Alice in Wonderland Tea party for her 4 year old daughter who hated it). May I post some of these pictures on my blog...linking to this posting of course. My blog is all about fun ideas for parties and Christmas cards, so you are right up my alley.
