Jesen’s John Deere 2nd Birthday

 john deere inspired

I just love how this John Deere Inspired Birthday turned out from Traci Tudor, She had did her son’s birthday last year using our Sock Monkey Printables, so when she contacted me again about doing a John Deere Inspired package I was so happy because I had been wanting to design one but just never got around to it. This gave me the push I needed and with some of Traci’s Ideas and mine we created the cutest John Deere Inspired Package. Traci took our printables and crafted them into such an adorable birthday party for her son’s 2nd birthday. I love all the details and DIY projects she made for the party.

Here’s what Traci had to say about her Son’s Birthday Party:

Living in the lettuce capital of the world, there was no better way to celebrate our son’s 2nd birthday than by throwing a John Deere Tractor celebration. My mom and I planned all year long and couldn’t have made it near the success it was without Cupcake Express’ Printable Party Package!

One of my favorite ways to create excitement before the big day arrives is through creative and unique invitations. We gathered denim pants from our local Goodwill’s on half price Saturdays and stored them in trash bags until we had collected enough to make these adorable denim pocket invitations. Inside each pocket was a Cupcake Express Printable 3×5 Invitation with all of the party details.

Once the invitations were mailed out, decoration planning was kicked in to high gear. We started with making the adorable Tractor Crossing Signs and ordered a grand total of 16 dozen yellow and green bandanas which we used on the back of chairs and tops of tables as runners. Along the way I found Elizabeth with Posh Paper Creations who created tractor crayons which we placed on the tables as well as baggies of sunflower seeds for snacking.

And what party isn’t complete without a fabulous desert table! Ours included cream sodas with Cupcake Express’ Custom Bottle Labels, dirt pudding with fresh gummy worms, and of course rice crispy treat hay bales and chocolate donut tractor tires. To tie it all together we had dozens of cupcakes and Ashley with Bubba Sweet’s made us the adorable tractor chocolates.

To top it off we had two adorable cakes from Jaime with Yuma Couture Cakes. The stunning three teired cake had butter cream layers with mixed fruit fillings. It was just as great to eat as it was to look at. For my son, she also created a tractor tire personal cake just for smashing. Sadly, my propperly manored two year old wouldn’t go near it. We also had a very large, almost life size, tractor pinata that was gifted to our son by his Nana Blanca (babysitter). As you can imagine, it was a huge hit with the kiddos.

As for favors, each child took home a planter pot with seeds, gardening gloves, and a shovel inside. We tied them together with Cupcake Express’ matching Thank You Tags. For the adults, I created a recipe card that we attached to tractor shaped cookie cutters. Each recipe said:

Recipe for birthday boys:

1 bucket of dirt

2 cups of worms

1 tsp. of sweat

A pinch of germs

Mix together with plenty of Mommy’s love,

add a dash of bumps and bruises and

garnish with Daddy’s pride and joy.

Heat with sunshine and spread over a

lifetime of Birthday memories.
