Farm cake and party

We had a surprise birthday party for my friend Chrystal.  We had a country theme.  She likes horses, so I made a horse.  Her kitchen is in cows, so I made a cow.  They will be moving to MO and are going to raise sheep, so I made a sheep.  I had that cute mold for the lady that I put next to a haystack.  And of course the number 30 for her age.  I made a buttermilk layer cake, you can find that recipe here.
She was very surprised!
 I used quilts for part of the decoration.  I covered an ugly white bench here for her to sit and open presents. Julia made the birthday sign.
 I put out some board games and covered two of the back tables with quilts to sit and play games at.
I made her a table runner for her birthday and used it as part of the directions.

Making the cake, the table runner and planning the party has kept me pretty busy this week!
Have a wonderful Sunday tomorrow, I'll be spending the day in church!

What adorable little farm animals! Where in MO are they moving? The same place you all have been visiting?
