Old Fashioned County Fair Party

April 30, 2014 in News

My sister, Lexi, is so creative, I just had to share the first birthday party she threw for my lil nephew! (Thanks, Lex, for letting me share)! She and her husband threw him an Old Fashioned County Fair party. She did a lot of research online to get the ideas flowing and then, added her own personal touch! She also had me sew a few things for the party! Enjoy the pics!

Here is the delicious spread Lexi and her husband prepared…I love how the corn dogs were presented! And, there were pulled pork sandwiches, mac-n-cheese (can never go wrong there), baked beans, veggies, and fruit.

Ice cream maker used…found at Bed Bath and Beyond. Nice touch…it’s even “old fashioned.” 🙂

I observed the ice cream being made and it didn’t seem too difficult!

Bite size carmel apples! Mmmm! Here’s how to make them!

My sis had me sew these little cardigan onesies (using this sewing tutorial) for a possible party outfit, but, also for one year pictures! It was so fun and easy and so adorable with his homemade bow tie that my sister made using this video tutorial. For the cardigan onesie, you just start with a bought onesie, cut it, and add some bias tape and buttons…this tutorial walks you through it!

Carter’s awesome one year old photos were taken by Stephanie Doll Photography!
