The theme was easy. I had been throwing around cow/farm ideas ever since his first birthday, because he has always had a love for cows. So I started browsing Pinterest and saving all the ideas on a secret board. (it’s not secret anymore if you want to take a peek). I started saving pictures that I loved and then made lists. Lots and lots of lists. My biggest tip for planning a party like this is start early! Not only was it essential to getting everything done, but I was able to scour the internet and grab some great deals from sites and not worry about getting them here on time. Gotta love eBay and shipping from China. :)
I knew that with 42 adults and 28 kids, that this party was going to take some major organization on my part. So I approached it like I would have a classroom party with time frames for everything, and stations where I could break up the large number of kids and keep them busy. So I planned 3 fun stations and made little agendas to hand out when people arrived.
