Completed in May 2014, Blue Bell Barn provides a wide, airy space perfect for events, parties and celebrations.
The barn was constructed with a honey – hued oak timber frame and finished with whitewashed, pine interior walls. Throughout the structure are barn doors and wood paneling created with wood salvaged from our old barn and a barn from Kansas City.
A spacious patio and lawn area, on the west side of the barn, overlook acres of our rolling hills with distant views of roaming cows. For larger events, the lawn is the perfect place for your tent rental, additional tables or dance floor. Left of the barn is our organically grown vegetable field where produce for your event’s meal may originate.
The foyer of the barn was designed to be a cozy space that allows for intimate conversation away from the main hall. Large barn doors allow separation from the rest of the main hall providing an opportunity for a grand entrance into your main event.
Within the barn foyer, right of the main hall entrance, is a stairway leading to the barn’s loft area: an open area accented and illuminated by two rope pendant lights and black, iron sconces framing a beautiful antique mirror.
The loft can provide additional seating as well as an exceptional view of the activities and goings on below.
Large Main Hall
Walking into the barn, through the foyer and through the double barn doors is the main hall. Spacious and airy, the main hall is like a breath of fresh air. The space accommodates approximately 150 guests seated at round tables.
Beautiful, rustic rope chandeliers and circular, wooden pendant lights hang from the ceiling, while iron sconces illuminate the walls.
Dark, walnut stained concrete floors and burlap window treatments contrast the neutral, white walls to create the perfect blank canvas for your event decorations to shine.View Image Gallery
Off to the right of the barn, through French doors, is the large, covered patio. Illuminated by rustic blue mason jar chandeliers, the patio serves as an excellent space for extra seating or mingling. Weathered teak lounge furniture with cream colored cushions are available for your use or can also be moved to another location by the barn. If more room is needed, the lush grassy area next to the patio creates the perfect spot for a large tent.View Image Gallery
Barn Wood Bar
Off the left side of the entrance and main hall, through large barn doors, is the cozy barn wood bar. The bar doors, walls and fireplace mantel were all hand crafted from reclaimed wood from both our old barn and another Missouri barn.
The wide, wooden bar, created from a feed trough from our old barn, is well lit by three large antique brass, birdcage pendants and surrounded by leather-cushioned barstools.
Comfortable leather armchairs frame the wood-burning fireplace and rustic café tables and chairs provide a cozy, intimate setting for your guests to relax and visit.
Burlap curtains drape the windows next to graphite portraits of possible ancestors. Antique mirrors and roe deer antlers over the fireplace complete the room.
The bride’s room is designed to start the day with the same romance and style as it will finish. Designed specifically for the bride-to-be, the room is comfortably equipped with upholstered seating, ample mirrors, natural light and space for the whole bridal party to relax and prepare for the festivities.
Calming views set the mood; windows frame rolling hills, a pond and the lush garden full of colorful flowers, herbs and vegetables.View Image Gallery
