Farmyard Theme

Most kids love animals which makes a farmyard theme a common and fun theme for a birthday celebration!

You can incorporate natural elements such as wood and grass into the party scene, or make it as colourful as you like. Gingham is a popular pattern in this theme so I have included lots of gingham products in this post.

You can incorporate tin pails, toy farm animals (or real ones!!), straw hats, fresh fruit and milk and wooden crates etc to develop a true farm feel. Some hire companies have great farm props such as water barrels and hay bales. You can also pick up some lovely Country style home decor items in the stores these days which could double as something extra special on the party table.

Remember to have a look at the Party Directory page on the blog for links to lots of suppliers for invites, party decor, hire items and more!

    The cupcakes look dielcious! I love the gingham wrappers! My favorite way to celebrate is anything that’s fun. I love going out to eat with friends I sing in a chorus with about 125 other women and having them sing happy birthday is just the best thing! so Happy Birthday to you!
