Modern Farmer’s Market Playdate with Chinet Giveaway!

One of my favorite things about summer is picking up our CSA farmshare box to see what wonderful bounty was picked for that week. I LOVE the fresh, local vegetables that we receive and feel so good feeding my family with these healthy goodies. It seems like everywhere you look there is a new Farmer’s Market stand popping up, which lead me to the theme of our next Picture Perfect Playdate. I wanted to give it a modern, sleek touch vs. the rustic images you would imagine with this farmer’s market theme. As always, Veronica Huang from Veronica Huang Photography captured everything beautifully.

I started by doing a few DIY projects such as the white stand made from $1 foam board from the Dollar Tree, as well as the berry garland using red pom yarn and shamrock felt buttons. I also decided to make “shovels” for cupcake toppers using lollipop sticks that I cut and glued to make handles and used craft paper to make the shovel part which I then stamped “dig in”. I found these great fruit gumballs at Home Goods which were perfect to add to the cupcakes as well as plastic tubes as favors for the kiddos.

For the sweet treats I used Chinet’s Cut Crystal 9oz cups to hold chocolate pudding and cookie crumbles to resemble the “dirt” to the beautiful vegetable cookies that Dolce and Biscotti made. I also made cupcakes with my shovel toppers and served apple juice using Chinet’s Cut Crystal 14 oz cups.

Activities included some “farming” for the girls. At each place setting I had material for the girls to plant some seeds of their own favorite fruit/vegetable. And the day wouldn’t be complete without a farmer’s potato sack race! The girls had a great time hopping to the finish line, which I made using Chinet’s Classic white dessert plates. I folded the plates in half and cut them on the diagonal and hot glued them to some polka dot ribbon that matched the table runner. It was a perfect way for them to enjoy these last few weeks of summer!

  1. Terrific job. I never thought of using Chinet products for the kids parties like that but after those pictures you sold me. Great, thank you.

  2. I am not creative AT ALL, so I have to get all my ideas from Pinterest and blogs. 🙂
