Farm Birthday Party: The Best Ideas, Foods and Games
I’m so excited about writing about farm birthday party ideas, foods, and games. My baby girl loves farm animals very much. I think I will base her coming second birthday party on farm birthday party theme. She loves the sounds made by farm animals like cows, chickens, and sheep and always wants to read her books about farm animal living.
She was born in the winter time and this theme reminds me of the warm summer breeze. So I will have to focus on adding extra colorful decorations when I will be preparing her birthday party, to give extra pop of energy when outside will be very cold weather . Since I came across lots of sites and blogs about adding color and vigor to a farm themed party, I have no worries that the party won’t live to its expectations. Here are the farm birthday party ideas that will really make your animal loving baby enjoy his/her birthday.
Farm Themed Party – Moments on the Blog
This is one great blog by Aylah’s mom. Aylah turned two this last November and her mom decided to share with us how the farm themed party looked like. The entire party was farm themed ranging from the invitations envelopes to the fence. Aylah’s mom used her DIY skills to craft the animals using sheets of paper and polka dot wrapping paper which she used to make envelopes. She printed green fences on sheets of label paper and peeled them off and used them as stickers. To give the party a farm theme, she cut the horses into two and stuck them onto the front and back of the envelopes.
Then she went on to craft several home animals, ranging from cows to horses onto sheets of paper and stuck them onto walls and tables. With traditional party hats kept aside, Aylah’s mom opted for the cowboy hats to complement the farm theme. With lots of other crafted farm animals and cupcake toppings, Aylah’s farm themed party was a real hit.

Have you come across a cow cake? Well, it sounds funny and hard to make but trust me, it doesn’t seem that hard after reading the recipe at Blahnik baker blog. After the author, Zainab Mansaray saw one on Pinterest, she set upon to make one. After making the cake as directed, it’s your imagination which limits you as you play with fondant to fix the body parts; mouth, black spots, nose, and eyes.

No farm party can be complete without spending quality time outside and getting a little dirt with farm birthday party games. Here are a few games I plan to have with my two-year-old-to-be baby girl.
Here are some farm inspired party games to try out with the kids.
- Bean bag toss- play in the backyard;

- Duck matching game- pick two duck and have fun matching the number at the bottom;
- Bobbing for apples;
- Pigs are loose- draw faces of pig on balloons and set them loose. Let the kids run after them;
- Gather the eggs game- scatter eggs all around the yard and let kids have fun gathering them.
With all these farm birthday party ideas, foods and games, my baby girl is really going to enjoy the big day. You can make your kid’s big day a hit by trying out farm themed birthday party. Do it at home like I do mine, but make an effort of inviting a petting zoo to keep the kids ribs vibrating. Alternatively hold the party in a zoo and let the kid have fun seeing all the animals. Either way, it will be an amazing farm birthday party.
