little house on the prairie 12th birthday party

This past summer we attended a Little House on the Prairie themed birthday party.  It was so sweet.  The hostess kindly allowed me to share these photos she took.

Each little guest was greeted with a small bucket containing a sandwich, an apple, chips, and pretzels inside for lunch.  They had various vegetables to choose from to add to their buckets.  There was fresh lemonade served in mason jars (I'm a sucker for fresh lemonade in mason jars).

Little bonnets were handmade for the girls and hung from a clothesline.  Little bandannas, made for the boys, were also hung from the clothesline.

For dessert, our hosts also served homemade ice cream, a lemon cake with fresh strawberries, and whipped cream.  The children engaged in a variety of fun activities like jump roping and 3 legged races.  I was happy to see the birthday girl playing jacks with her friends.  I didn't know anybody played jacks anymore! ;D

    1. What a fun party. It's nice to see that some people are doing such great birthday parties for their kids without going overboard. I've heard of some really outrageous kid's parties where parents spend lots of money. I'm sure the kids really enjoyed this one much more that a rental clown!
