County Fair :: Kindergarten graduation party

Red, white, and blue.  

Cow, polka dots, and gingham prints.

Splashes of green + yellow.

Blue ribbons to be awarded and

tin cans to be knocked down.

The smells of kettle corn, root beer

and

horses

fill  the air…

where are you?  the County Fair?

Close…

County Fair Kindergarten graduation party!

Inspired by Trish’s original use of primary colors in the invitations

and the horse and pony she had rented for that day,

I grabbed hold of the County Fair theme and ran with it!

The dessert table consisted of old fashioned goodies,

Lemonade,  Molasses and Sugar cookies and ginger snaps,

Kettle corn, nostalgic candy like root beer and cream suckers* 

{*we got ours at Walmart}

and featured a repurposed candle holder – spray painted glossy white :

as a Ferris wheel cupcake holder!

Cupcakes included classic chocolate and country vanilla with cream cheese frosting,

and then fun “County Fair” flavors – strawberry lemonade and cotton candy

Given that Trish’s yard looks like the grounds of a county fair,

we had fun creating lots of little areas for the party goers to enjoy and relax in,

like this corner,  with hay bales for seating and an antique milk  jug for a table –

the perfect size for creating a space where little 5 + 6 year olds could relax and

enjoy some of the treats…

and separate game “booths”

{areas set up in front of shrubs and trees

decorated with simple, yet colorful paper buntings and fringe garland}
