We have a friend with a great personality and she gives fabulously fun parties. We call her the party queen because her parties are not your average party. This September we were lucky to be included for her latest party. In part, her invitation read:
“Come roster and hen to Little Pecker Liberation Day and Chicken Dinner.Raised from babes and now ready for the “big yard”. Come watch the excitement unfold and watch the new pecking order begin”.
She and her husband have a beautiful ranch that has all the perks and it is always a pleasure to attend a party there. We wouldn’t want to miss any of her parties!
The following picture is the graphics from her invitation. The invitation was one by Diane Jacky. She does precious chicken art. She graciously allowed me to post a photo from the invitation. You can find her fun art on her website. Do visit her site for really cute art; especially if you love chickens!
Of course the party table had a chicken theme. We feasted on fried chicken, grilled sausage, potato salad, fresh green salad, fruit salad along with really delish dips. For dessert we had a cake decorated with chickens. After dinner we had a chicken fact game and won chicken related gifts.
The drinks were served in their old vintage truck. I cannot help it, but I am very jealous of that truck. I can see me driving down the highway in it, but that is another story… Don’t ya just love it?
Before we had the chicken ceremony we had the feeding of the fish. She turned her old vintage cement septic into a really pretty fish tank. Last time I was there it was empty septic and it had been transformed into a pretty pond lined with native rock. Again, JEALOUS!
The excitement built and finally it was time for her new chickens to finally join the old chickens in the chicken yard. For those of us who do not have chickens it really was interesting to watch. The older chickens were not too happy to have new friends, but by the time the evening ended I think everyone was ok with the arrangement. I hope all the new little chickens made it through the night. Chicken’s can have an attitude, you know?
They have cattle and horses too. Look at this beauty.
She has a really interesting bottle tree. I love it, but do not understand it. If we had one at our ranch I think the bottles would blow off and I would constantly be cleaning glass off the ground. I’m going to have to investigate this bottle tree thing further…
My friend also has the cutest little mini bee hive. I have never seen these little ones before. Looks like it would be a nice fun small project. Killer Bee’s have been found in my parts so I am sure if I tried this little project I would wake up one day to a genetic disaster chasing me across the pasture! Guess I will pass. Maybe I could have a little fake bee house in my yard looking so cute!
My friend and her husband have a larger than life ranch which reflects all the hard work they have put into it. I have never described a ranch as one with “glam”, but I can honestly say her ranch has major “bling”! I cannot wait to return. Fun times at her place.
“Ranchers Have More Fun” would definitely apply to her ranch parties!
I bet you thought this was going to be a naughty blog post, huh?! Got ya!
