John Deere Party Invitations
Usually it's best to begin the planning two weeks before the party in order to have time to organize your ideas and buy the necessary items without being rushed. This, of course, will depend on the size of your party. If you are planning to invite a large group of children, you may need to start this stage even earlier.
Once you've chosen the guests, you'll need to send out the invites. You can make your own invitations at home.
A cute idea is to purchase some firm, green paper. Fold the paper the size of the tractor you will use. Trace the tractor a little lower than the fold. Cut around the sides and bottom of the tractor, being careful not to cut across the top. Write the information on the front and inside. You might also want to ask the guests to come dressed as farmers. For decoration, you can add some John Deere stickers to the cards or envelopes.

John Deere Party Decorations
Before choosing your decorations, determine what colors to use. Green and yellow are good ones to use with the John Deere birthday party theme. Since John Deere tractors and machinery are used on a farm, you can use a farm setting for the party. Set bales of straw around the party area for the children to sit or play on. If you have any stuffed farm animals or farm tools you can place them in convenient spots. Anything you can do to make the area look like a farm will work.
Balloons, streamers and a personalized John Deere birthday banner make great decorations. Use green and yellow balloons or streamers. If your little boy wants decorations that are more theme-specific, you can find these as well. Tractor whirls can hang from the ceiling or from the light fixtures. You can place removable John Deere wall decorations up in the party room, as well as John Deere Mylar balloons and tractor-decorated balloons.
It is rather hard to have a John Deere birthday party without a John Deere tractor. If you happen to live in a farm area, you might be able to ask a farmer nearby to loan you one just to park in your yard. If that isn't possible you can get some large boxes at a furniture or appliance store and some smaller ones from the grocery store. Buy some green, yellow and black washable paint and allow the children to make their own tractor and then play in it.
You might also want to bring in a John Deere photo prop so you can take pictures of all of the guests riding a "tractor" if you live in a city and don't want to keep your home too messy, even with washable paint.

John Deere Party Costumes
Embrace your inner farmer and get down John Deere style! If you are looking for homemade costume ideas for kids that are farm themed for this type of party, then fortunately it's relatively easy to do. You can simply put them in a flannel shirt or something more casual and a pair of jeans¯overalls are even better if you have them and make the look more authentic. Then throw on a straw hat and of course some boots. You can throw in a stuffed animal as the perfect accessory to show the farmer is hard at work. Your kids will have fun getting in touch with their inner farmer and you won't have to put too much effort into creating the perfect costume.
John Deere Party Icebreaker Activities
If you have a child who is all about the John Deere birthday party, then they are likely interested in anything that has to do with a farm. If that's the case then it opens up a whole lot of doors for you to plan out some fun games and a great John Deere party icebreaker. In this particular activity, you create a fun farm right in your backyard. You can hire a few animals from the local petting zoo or just go for more of an imaginary type of theme. Just be sure that you have a wide array of farm animals that they can all take turns petting and caring for. The farm is what this theme is all about and if you can recreate it, even in an imaginary sense they will just love it to pieces!
What Sound Do I Make?
This is such a fun game for the farm animal theme and it works tremendously well for a John Deere party icebreaker. This works well for young kids in particular but can be fun for all ages. You set up a bunch of different stuffed animals and then have recordings of the various sounds that the animals make. It's so much fun to watch the kids try and create the animal sounds themselves because they will be laughing so hard that they practically fall over. Is it basic and classic? Sure, but it works and it is something that fits within the theme, keeps them entertained, is actually educational, and of course makes for some great fun at this type of party.
Farmer Education Fun
Being a farmer is an awful lot of fun, though it is of course hard work. When you throw a John Deere birthday party, you want it to be fun but the nice part is that it can also be quite educational as well. The best way to create this John Deere party icebreaker is to hire a local farmer to come in and talk to the kids. This way you are teaching them to support and learn from their local farmers and you are accomplishing a fun and educational type of party activity. Have the farmer come in, maybe even bring some of his animals, and teach the kids about what it is to run a farm. Let the kids ask questions, see the animals, and taste some of his local crops. This is such a fun way to get the kids involved and actually teach them something without making it too difficult. They'll never even realize that they are learning because they will be too interested in what the farmer has to say.
Musical Cow Chairs
Anything can be fun when you attach a farm theme to it, and this is no exception. In this John Deere party icebreaker, you create musical chairs for the kids to play but in a farm theme. You can decorate each chair to be a different farm animal and play farm songs like "Old Macdonald" while they race to their positions. This is such a classical game that has been around for years, but yet with a farm theme attached to it this makes it so much more fun and entertaining. This is not your typical musical chairs and the kids can laugh, run, and keep entertained for hours on end playing this.
John Deere Birthday Party Foods
You can simply serve cake and ice cream or you can serve a larger meal depending on the time the party is scheduled. You can look for John Deere plates, napkins, cups, placemats, and centerpieces to help decorate the table or serving area.
Cake – Make a sheet cake and frost it with green icing for the grass. Use pretzel sticks for a fence. Purchase a John Deere cake topper decoration and place it on top.
- Sandwiches – You can make normal sandwiches and cut them in animal shapes with large cookie cutters.
- Veggie Garden – Prepare fresh vegetables and lay them in rows on a serving tray. Place a toothpick with the name of the veggie in the first veggie on every row.
- Cow Juice – Serve cold chocolate milk in the summer and hot chocolate in the winter.
John Deere Party Favors
For many children, the best part of the party is going to be the favors they bring home afterward. Thankfully, you can find a wide range of options. Tractor-themed coloring books can be entertaining for guests and inexpensive.
John Deere blowouts and hats are standard party fare whether you give them as favors or use them as place settings. For a truly unique favor, the tire-shaped John Deere cups are a popular hit with kids, too.
If you're looking for an easier option for the favors, purchase a pre-made John Deere party favor box. You'll find it full of things your guests are going to love. Your imagination is the limit when it comes to planning and celebrating your son's John Deere Birthday Party. Just don't forget to send out the John Deere thank you cards within two weeks of the party.
