Kid's Party Ideas -Barnyard Party Ideas

Party Resource Guide
Presented by Event & Wedding Planners

With an oink, oink here and an oink, oink there your child can celebrate their special day with a barn yard full of friends.  Spend a day on the farm, with cute animals, a tractor, and barn. Set the tone for your party with a themed tablecloth, plates & napkins. Use RED BANDANAS as napkins & tie with rope or raffia. Place a Cake shaped like a barn, pig, sheep, cow or pony on the table as a centerpiece.

Party Slogan:

After selecting this theme for your party, choose a slogan to use in your invitations, and to use in tying in decorations and personalized favors to your barnyard theme.  Find the perfect slogan for your party by trying one of the following, or by thinking of one that suits your precious child.

  • ”Barnyard Bash!”

  • “Fun at the Farm!”

  • “Horsin’ Around Birthday Party!”

  • “Let’s make hay at Ben’s Barnyard Birthday Bash!”


Choose invitations that let your young guests know what a down-on-the-farm good time they will have at the party:

Address each envelope to “Farmer Jones (each child’s last name)”

As an alternative, purchase an inexpensive straw cowboy hat for each party guest.  Attach a computer generated sticker with all the party details to the back of the hat.  Hand deliver the invites, and ask guests to wear them to the party with farm friendly attire…denim overalls and flannel shirts.

On your invitations be sure to tell the kid's to come dressed like a farmer in an old shirt & overalls. When your guests arrive present each farmer, ranch hand or cowpoke with a red bandana and cowboy hat.


The key to pulling off a coordinated event: Evoke your theme throughout the affair. Whether that theme is as general as a season or a feeling, or as specific as a special character, it should be the subtle thread that ties everything together. Your location, invitations, flowers, menu, cake, and favors should all cleverly reflect one common concept. Then, get as creative as you can!

Outdoor Decorations:

Use helium filled balloons, and tie to a mailbox or at the entryway, make balloon bouquets to set on tables or tie balloons to a special chair for the birthday child. 

Table Decorations

Setting a table with the party ware, including the tablecloth, cups, plates, napkins, and cutlery is the fastest way to create a focal point in a room. Use a combination of themed tableware and solid colored tableware for a designer look.

What is more festive then balloons for decorations. Create your own balloon bouquet centerpieces using a bunch of helium filled balloons tied with curling ribbon. Attach them to a STRAW BALE. Use straw bales on serving tables to create different heights for placing food or cake.

Anchor balloons to a cowboy hat for a terrific centerpiece or use cowboy hats for serving dishes for dry snacks such as chips, pretzels or candy.

BANDANAS make great Napkins or Overlays for tables. You can also use the bandanas as treat containers, just open them up, place favors inside, pull up the four corners and tie off with raffia. Attach a SHERIFF BADGE to the outside of each for an added touch!

Roll a napkin, and tie with curling ribbon, raffia or jute, and place in the center of each plate at an angle. The cutlery can also be added before the napkin is tied. 

Unfold a napkins, pinch each in the center and place the center point down into the bottom of each cup or wine glass. This adds a festive touch while the cups or glasses are still empty. 

Display your birthday cake in the center of the table…the kids will love the close up view!

Indoor Decorations:

Swing open the doors for a good old-fashioned barn party!  

Add a few STRAW BALES around a split rail fence and the kids will be in the mooo-d to party!  The bales of hay can also be used as seating for the kids when they eat, or when they need to be seated for a party activity.

Spread straw on the floors or ground if outside.

Use animal piņatas as a centerpiece for a serving table or gift table and then bring your party to it's conclusion by letting the kid's take a wack at the piņata. I've never seen a kid that doesn't like a piņata. 

Tie Cowhide Balloons to mini straw bales for cute centerpieces.

Balloons can economically transform any room into a festive space in a matter of minutes. 

Use a Helium Tank to fill balloons.  Tie Curling Ribbon to balloons, and group them together. (Odd numbers look best: 3, 5, or 7) Place groupings of balloons around the party room. 

Tie a bunch of helium filled balloons to the birthday child’s chair, or to the back of each chair. 

If you choose not to use helium, tie balloons to varying lengths of curling ribbon, and hang balloons from the ceiling, or from a light fixture over the party table.

Balloon Decorating Tips



Remember that kid's eat very little at a party. Cake, Ice Cream & Moo Juice (milk) are all that is really needed. For a light meal we suggest:


Sandwiches cut into animal shapes with cookie cutters.

Spread softened butter over pieces of thinly sliced bread.

Add sandwich fillings like:

  • Peanut Butter and banana. 

  • Bologna slices

  • Ham and cheese (thinly sliced and garnished with Dijon mustard). 

  • Ham Filling: Combine 2 cans processed ham with 1/4 cup mayonnaise and 1 teaspoon mustard. Makes 1 1/2 cups.

  • Pineapple and cream cheese (whip together one package cream cheese with 1/2 cup cream. Add one cup well drained crushed pineapple).

  • Cheese Filling: Beat 2 packages (3 ounce each) softened cream cheese with 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, 2 teaspoon lemon juice and 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce to spreading consistency. Makes 2/3 cup.

    Wrap and refrigerate the sandwiches. Shortly before serving, remove from the refrigerator, trim off the crusts and cut out shapes


You will each need a biscuit from a can of biscuits and one hot dog. Take the biscuit and flatten it with your hands. Try to make it into a rectangle so that it is bigger than your hot dog. After it is big enough, wrap your hot dog in the biscuit. Place the pig in the blanket on a baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. As a variation try using little cocktail sausages instead of hot dogs.


Yield: 10 servings

2 Cups Cold milk
1 pkg. JELL-O chocolate pudding
1 pkg. COOL-WHIP topping, thawed
1 pkg. Chocolate sandwich cookies
10 7 ounce plastic cups
Gummy worms
Gummy frogs
Candy flowers
Chopped peanuts

Crush cookies until they resemble dirt and set aside. Combine pudding mix and milk until well blended. Then fold in the whipped topping. Fill plastic cups with pudding mixture alternating with the cookie crumbs. Top with cookie crumbs. Refrigerate for a couple of hours, then decorate with gummy worms and other toppings.
