John Deere Tractor Party

Today's winning party feature goes to this fun JOHN DEERE TRACTOR BIRTHDAY PARTY submitted by Chickabug! Abbie {Carter & Copeland's mama} did all the party styling...and did a superb job! Everything is so cute.

Abbie started with metal John Deere buckets filled with florist's foam, then added bunches of faux sunflowers from Hobby Lobby, green and yellow bandannas, and balloons. She used small pieces of dowels to poke the hankies down in the foam.
Lunch included Chick-fil-A nuggets, fruit salad, chips, pretzels, and of course candy! Abbie served Sour Patch Kids, sixlets, gumballs, sour straws, Reese's cups, Mike & Ike's, and Jolly Ranchers, all in yellow and green. She also had custom M&M's made with the boys' photos and names on them.
Party favors-
Favor bags included John Deere plastic cups, John Deere popcorn bags, and small plastic farm animals. The bags were wrapped up with green and yellow raffia from Michael's and a printable favor tag.

Water bottle labels, DIY printable cupcake set, favor tags and signs: Chickabug

Custom t-shirts on the birthday kids: Fly Duds
"Hay!" banner: Birthday Express

John Deere plates: Birthday Express 
John Deere logo fabric: Local fabric shops (Abbie sewed it into basket liners, etc.)
John Deere logo balloons, toys, signs, and other items shown:
