Real Party: Peaches and Cream Birthday

I am very excited about today’s real party!  It comes to us from the talented mom, sewer, crafter, and designer, Jessica Levitt. You may remember Jessica from the Construction Birthday Party we featured back in December, which was amazingly cute. Well today I’m thrilled to share the fantastic party she threw for her daughter’s 5th birthday.  Put together the charming peach farm location and her daughter’s love of ice cream… you’ve got yourself some peach picking and ice cream licking fun.  Let’s take a look at this Peaches and Cream Birthday Party!

I LOVE these super cute peach cupcakes and peach ice cream cone cake pops.  Very Bakerella-esk.

Here is a little of what Jessica of had to say about this event:

“I’m happy to report that we were blessed with gorgeous, sunny (if somewhat windy) weather. That’s the totally stressful part of planning an outdoor party away from home. I had all of 1 1/2 hours to decorate the tent. Not pretty. Thankfully I had some helpful family around. The tent had giant peach paper lanterns strung up with felt leaves. I also made some fabric garlands that ran across the support bars with mini peach lanterns hanging down. Totally didn’t anticipate the amount of wind so it was hard to get a decent picture, by my friend Christianne did it again.

When the guests first arrive the could feed the animals carrots or do some coloring of farm pictures.  Guess how much coloring was done?  Next it was time to go peach-picking.  While waiting for the hay ride, there was much silliness and some rousing games of ring-around-the-rosy.  Then we loaded onto the hay wagon and enjoyed a scenic ride around the farm.  There was a little instruction on which peaches were ripe and we were dropped off in the peach groves and got to roam about filling our little baskets.  With a little help from the moms and dads, the kids had a great time.  We had a little wait until the hayride came back to get us, so the kids did a little tree climbing… Then we headed back to the tent for food and treats.”

Once again, Jessica amazes me with her attention to detail and design skills!  The mix of peach fabrics creates a charming patchwork-y feel, perfect for down on the farm. A special thanks to Christianne Ebel for the stunning photography and Jessica Levitt for the charming party inspiration.   Get the full scoop on all of the adorable peachy details on Jessica’s blog.

    I love the peach baskets. And the cupcakes and cake pops. It’s all so peachy! (Sorry for the bad pun, I couldn’t resist!)
