By  | Last Updated:  

With an oink and a moo and a cock-a-doodle-doo, these boy’s barnyard 2nd birthday party ideas may just bring a big smile to your face that you won’t soon want to wipe away. Creative mom, Rachel, planned this barnyard themed bash for her two-year-old son Isaac. She was inspired by his love of farm animals–and making their noises–and tractors!  The decorations, sweet cake and refreshments are delightful!

Guests were invited for some barnyard fun for Farmer Isaac’s 2nd birthday party. I love how Rachel incorporated the guest of honor’s picture on the invitation.  How could anyone stand to miss celebrating such a darling little boy?  My favorite invitation detail was the request for guests to RSVP “yay” or “neigh” for barnyard fun. So clever!

Rachel styled a darling farm table for feeding time.  A bright lime green table cover and cow print runner provided a fun canvas for adding colorful place settings.  Red and lime green plates were layered and topped off with a festive cow print napkin.  Milk bottles filled with water had cute cow print paper straws.  Barnyard themed toys made perfect child-friendly centerpieces.

A festive gingham and cow print birthday banner was hung on the mirror above the table to bring in more party flair and paired well with cow print balloons on each side.

Activities for this two-year-old’s party were kept appropriately simple.  Rachel took advantage of a beautiful, sunny spring day and let the little farm hands run free outside, playing in their son’s awesome outdoor play area.
