CHOOSE YOUR COLOUR PALETTE
Rustic Red & White
Colour Palette: Red, White, and Natural Wood Tones
This classic farm colour scheme is perfect for a timeless and rustic feel. Red barns and white picket fences are iconic symbols of farm life, and you can incorporate these colours in various ways through checkered tablecloths, a custom DIY Balloon Garland Kit and incorporating natural wood tones for a warm and authentic touch.
Vibrant Barnyard Colours
Colour Palette: Bold Primary Colours
For a more vibrant and energetic farm-themed party, go all out with bold primary colors. This palette is perfect for a lively, kid-centered celebration. Think bright red, sunny yellow and a sky blue for a cheerful tone incorporated through balloons and tableware.
Pastel Farm Delight
Colour Palette: Soft Pastels with Hints of Barn Red and Green
For a more modern and whimsical take on a farm theme, consider a pastel palette with subtle nods to traditional farm colors. This combination adds a playful and airy touch to your party:
Soft pastel hues like mint green, pale blue, soft pink, and buttery yellow create a fresh and fun atmosphere. Our pastel gingham tableware are perfect for this charming palette.
Add hints of barn red for a pop of farm authenticity. Red gingham tableware, napkins, and accents work well.
Use greenery and floral arrangements to bring in the natural, garden-like aspect of a farm.

A farm-themed party wouldn't be complete without some good old-fashioned fun and games. Here are a few ideas to keep your young farmhands entertained:
Pin the Tail on the Donkey: A classic that never gets old. Blindfolded kids try to pin a tail on a donkey poster while being spun around. You can get creative and create your own Pin the Tail animal, using a cow, horse or pig instead.
Egg-and-Spoon Race: Kids balance an egg on a spoon and race to the finish line. Be ready for giggles and maybe a few cracked eggs. Tip: Use boiled eggs if you don't want to clean up any messes.
Farm Animal Scavenger Hunt: Hide little farm animal figurines around your party space, and give kids a list to check them off.
Barnyard Bingo: Create your own bingo cards with farm-themed pictures like cows, chickens, and tractors. Hand out small prizes for winners.
Sack Races: Get the burlap sacks out for some classic sack races. The kids will love hopping around like bunnies!
- Potato Digging: Bury some potatoes or root vegetables in a pile of soil and let the kids dig as many out as possible to place in baskets before the time is up.
As the party winds down, send your little farmhands home with some adorable party favours. Here are some suggestions:
Mini Farm Animal Figurines: Plastic farm animals make great keepsakes for your little guests.
Cowboy Hats: Provide each child with a mini cowboy or cowgirl hat to keep the farm spirit alive.
Farm-Themed Colouring Books: Keep the fun going with farm-themed colouring books and crayons.
And there you have it, a hoedown of a good time right in your own backyard! Planning a DIY farm-themed party can be a blast, and the memories you'll create with your little ones are worth every bit of effort. So giddy up, partner, and get ready for a good time at your very own farm-themed party.
