The backyard was transformed into a REDNECK Fall Fest
for a good ol’ boy’s birthday!
Larry was used to greet the guests.
Larry was clip art that I had enlarged and then I painted him.
Our red truck was used as a bar. Old wash bins and tubs were used to hold the pop and beer. (Thanks Dawn!) Punch was served in a big soup pot. Lights at the “bar” were lights poked inside Jack Daniels bottles.
Fall punch and lemonade was served at the Moonshine stand.
Drinks were poured into mason jars and each straw was tagged with something redneck.
Snacks were served off a white truck tailgate.
The menu of everything on the truck was written on the shutter.
Burlap, old wooden crates and mums made the “snack shak” old the rustic.
I baked 50 apple pies (birthday boy’s favorite!) for dessert plus filled up huge cookie jars with ding dongs, ho hos and twinkies.
Signs on the cookie jars were secured with duct tape, redneck style.
Banners were made with duct tape to decorate the deck and hunting lodge.
Flannel was used as tablecloths and weeds in bottles and cans were decorations.
Hay couch, hay bar table and hay benches:
More decorations: Bubba the scarecrow and a wheel barrow full of pumpkins, mums and apples.
Funny REDNECK stuff:
For a cold fall day, extra flannel shirts were available for any chilly hillbilly.
Git R Done!
Thanks for all the help setting up and cleaning up!
