Petting Zoo Party

Chelsea PellegrinoContributor

Horses, goats and guinea pigs, oh my! If your little one likes animals, they'll love this petting zoo party idea. Birthday boy Jordan celebrated his 2nd birthday surrounded by furry friends. With farm themed treats to accompany the entertainment and handmade decorations, this party was a hit! Thanks to Jordan's mom (and photographer) Blair, for sending over these fun pictures!

Not only was Blair the photographer, she was also in charge of all the awesome decor! With the help of some online inspiration, Blair brought a few DIY ideas to life. The "milk jar" drinking glasses were recycled from coffee drinks, and accompanied by these cute paper straws. And those yummy-looking pie pops? Mini pie crusts stuffed with peanut butter and jelly, then finished with a lollipop stick! These ideas are super simple, and add a lovely personal touch to the party theme.


With some mason jars and fun plastic animals, Blair created tasty trail mix thank-you gifts that the kids loved! (Don't worry, we won't tell them it's healthy.) Also a huge hit was the fantastic farm cake from Dolled-Up Cakes by Lisette.


The stars of the show were, of course, the animals! The children loved getting a chance to pet and feed these friendly creatures. Everyone was encouraged to wear their best farm attire. From plaid and overalls to denim and bandanas, guests fit right into the theme.


Food, friends and furry animals made this farm party a success! Jordan and crew may have paid a visit to the animals, but you can "bring the zoo to you" by booking a mobile petting zoo here on GigMasters!
