Whoever said a farm birthday party couldn’t be stylish too? These farm themed birthday party ideas prove that a farm party can be both fun and filled with adorable and humorous party decorations.
When the Circus decided she wanted a farm theme party for her 6th birthday this year, I was totally on board, but I didn’t want it to be your typical farm theme party with everything black and white to reflect milk cows and hay all about. I wanted it to be colorful too – like her! I’m happy to say we successfully pulled off one full of personality, colorful farm themed birthday party!

Decoration Ideas for a Farm Party
These ideas are great for any gathering that is held on a farm or farm related in some way!
Set the mood.
Create an entrance to your party and set the mood with a “Welcome to the Farm!” sign. Use hay bales to hold it up if needed and embellish with balloons, bandannas and more!
Keep the tables simple.
There aren’t a whole lot of frills on a farm. Keep the table decorating simple by using red and white checkered tablecloths – a pattern that’s often seen on farms. Find the tablecloths here. This will also make for easy cleanup – these are just plastic, so after the party, just toss the soiled tablecloths in the trash!
Mason jars are a staple around farms. Fill them with grocery store flower bouquets that you mix and match yourself. For these arrangements, I bought three different bouquets at the grocery store, then just mixed flowers from each bouquet into each mason jar.
Have a few barnyard games around for folks to play. This bean bag toss is fun for both kids and adults. It’s simply made from one sheet of plywood and a little spray paint.
Another easy play activity to create for kids at farm themed parties are these “horses” made from square hay bales and stick horses. Just place the stick horse in the hay bale and let the kids ride!
Other barnyard games could include horseshoes, and pin the tail on the donkey.
Ideas for a Farm Birthday Party
These ideas are specifically for farm theme birthday parties! Personalize the party with the birthday kiddo’s age, name, and more!
Mini Party Hats for Animals
You probably noticed these cute little fellers in one of the photos above. I borrowed some of my daughter’s plastic farm animals, then adorned each with a mini party hat made from a cupcake liner. See how to make the hats here! I scattered these all around the party on the eating tables, food tables, etc. If you don’t have any farm animals on hand, you could use these.
Farm Birthday Party Banner
Create a birthday banner that reflects your farm theme by simply attaching letters to pieces of burlap using clothespins. Add more color to the banner by tying strips of colorful, patterned fabric to the ends.
Farm Birthday Art
Another simple farm party decoration I made were these pieces of art which I scattered all around the party. To make the one above with the farm animals, I used this stencil and just painted it on a small canvas, then just added the party themed stickers after the paint was dry.
I made this horseshoe art decoration for the party using this stencil. I personalized it a little more by adding “six” using stickers to the bottom of the horseshoe.
The great thing about these party decorations is that after the party we hung them up in the kiddo’s room – nice little mementos to have!
To add some decorative height as needed around the party, I made these animal cutouts. First, I bought these animal silhouettes, then loaded them into my Silhouette cutting machine and cut them out on colorful pieces of card stock. I glued them onto small wood dowels, then added touches of glitter here and there. Personalize these with your child’s age and initials. Stick them in bottles or vases as desired – we opted for old Coca Cola glass bottles. We also hung onto these as little decor pieces after the party.
Custom T-Shirt for the Birthday Boy or Girl
For the birthday party, the Circus wore a cute little shirt a friend of ours made that said “Farm Fresh.”
Don’t forget the party favors!
Don’t just give them any ol’ party favor – give them a farm birthday party favor that they’ll enjoy for longer than just one day! We gave each of our party guests a packet of seeds and a small planting pot.
