Some Old-fashioned Fun in the Sun!

The sun came out and so did the smiles for a “Country Fair and Picnic” we put on for one of our clients last week. The fair was set to take place in the East Bay at Ardenwood Historic Farm The farm's picnic area, Deer Park, was transformed and ready for guests to arrive, complete with picnic tables topped with sunflowers and arrangements of corn on the cob and lemons, red and white striped tents filled with classic carnival games, and a photo station with props of anything and everything “country fair.”

As fair-goers entered the park, they were met by staff adorned in cowboy hats greeting them with a "howdy." Bandanas were supplied so attendees could dress the part for a day at the Fair. Here’s a shot of our team ready to welcome guests to the fair!

We're showing off some of the many props that were a part of the photo station provided by Associated Entertainment ( They also provided the bluegrass band that played tunes throughout the fair. Event photos were taken by Doorstep Photography (

First stop: Picnic Loot. A canvas tote bag was provided for every employee in attendance.

There were so many activities to choose from and plenty for all to keep busy the entire afternoon. Fair-goers filled up their plates with delicious country-style bbq and grabbed a cold beverage from the watering hole.

Then it was off to explore the happenings on the farm…
"Step right up"...Fair-goers spent the afternoon playing tic tac toe, ring toss, and milk can. These great carnival games were provided by Plan-It Interactive
Roars of laughter and screams attracted most of the fair-goers to the dunk tank to watch their bosses get soaked. A fun time was had by all...even those who got soaked!

A pie bake-off was held, and those who entered went all out!
All of the pies entered were beautifully crafted and just as tasty as they looked.

The farm was filled with laughter, smiles, and screams of excitement the entire afternoon.
True signs of a successful event!
