Themed parties are always so much fun, whether it is a birthday, ladies night, holiday, or a seasonal party…I just love a good party. Last year, I was asked to judge a chili cook-off at my church’s ladies night event. I had so much fun and snapped a few pictures too so that you’d be inspired to have you own county fair party! I’ve got you covered with details, recipes, and links so you can easily get the look.
I actually attended the event with several girlfriends and we had so much fun playing all the games, filling up on goodies from the sweet shop, and sampling tons of great pie. In fact, I talked one of my friends in competing in the donut contest…so fun! Since this was a huge event there are tons of activities and goodies, however; doing this at home wouldn’t be as elaborate but would still be amazing and totally fun.
1. Ring Toss–Spray paint a flat box (think box from Costco that you bring home) and save glass soda bottles. Fill boxes with soda bottles. Toss rings at bottles. Win if you can catch a bottle with a ring.
4. Donut on a String Contest–Run thick string about 8 feet up between two walls or trees. Tie more strings to hang off main sting about 6 inches below face height of your guests, tie one cake donut onto each sting. Participants must keep hands behind their back and first one to finish donut wins!
4. Pies–Have guests bring their favorite pie to share.
2. Decorate with burlap pinwheels. Check out this great tutorial from my friend Laura at Pink Cake Plate.
Well, there you have it! I hope you’ve been inspired to host your own County Fair party.
