Farm birthday party decorations.

The key to a fabulous farm fête lies in the ambiance. We suggest starting with a barn door backdrop and a few farm-inspired banners. Hay bales also make wonderful farm party decorations that can double as seating. 

Depending on your particular party theme, there are many different accents you can add to play up your decor. For example, this foil sheep balloon is perfect for a farm animal themed birthday party.

For a farmer party idea with a little more flair, consider adding a market to the mix. House Party Collective created this adorable backdrop, but you can easily make a little farmer’s market of your own. 

Decorate some shelving units with simple signage and a display of fresh flowers and honey. Layer a colorful balloon garland on top and you’ll have the most charming DIY farm party decoration. You can even add some bumble bee balloons and daisy decorations to make it pop! 

And if you really want to party ‘til the cows come home, this backdrop turns into a fun activity! Simply hand out some baskets, and let your farm party animals “shop” at the market. This is also a great way to teach your kiddos about healthy eating and farm-to-table concepts. 

Come In Costume

On-theme costumes and accessories will make any hoedown a hoot! We recommend asking your guests to embrace their inner farmers and come dressed in their best farm fits. You can encourage them to wear plaid shirts, denim overalls, and straw hats. Or you can explore an even cuter route and have everyone come dressed as their favorite barnyard animal! 

Be sure to add some fun props to the mix, like a plaid bandana and a bag of feed. And if you really want to get creative, you can even offer some face painting for your guests. They'll love transforming into their favorite animals!

Get Grazing

When it comes to the best farm party food ideas, the more on-theme the better! We recommend making a grazing table with a variety of healthy snacks and tasty treats. Start by arranging fresh fruits and vegetables in baskets or on a charcuterie board. Then, let your good ol’ country creativity run wild! 

Farm theme parties offer a range of fun farm theme party food options. These include "piggy popcorn", which is bacon-flavored popcorn, and "chicken feed cubes" which are rice krispie treats. And be sure to save room for a slice of barnyard birthday cake or an animal-shaped cake pop or two!

For tableware, you can never go wrong with a classic barn party plate and coordinating cup and napkin. And, if you’re celebrating a tractor fanatic, we recommend adding this adorable red tractor napkin to your setting.

You can also play with cowboy theme party supplies and create a table setting with cow prints and neutral tones. These bamboo eco-friendly plates are reusable and work for a variety of party themes. We love how they look paired with these cowhide print cups and cute carrot napkins!

Keep The Party Buzzing

The best part about barnyard birthday parties is all of the exciting games and activities. “Pin the Tail on the Pig”, haystack treasure hunts, or classic sack races are always a hit! You could also create a "Duck Pond Fishing" game where kids try to catch rubber ducks with fishing rods. Don't forget to award small party favors like mini farm animal figurines or temporary tattoos for extra excitement!

Farm birthday party activity ideas.

Mini petting zoos are guaranteed to delight and excite guests of all ages. You can hire a local farmer to bring in some real animals for the kids to interact with. Or you can set up some party printables and stuffed animals for a pretend petting zoo that’s just as cute! 

No matter what you decide, make sure to capture all the fun with photos! You can even create a selfie station with a cute farm-themed backdrop and props. This would be a great way to get some adorable pictures of your little farmer and their friends.
