My son is John Deere Tractor OBSESSED and refers to himself as a John Deere Farmer Kid. He lives for those green and yellow tractors and spots them everywhere we go. When he said he wanted a John Deere Birthday party, I knew that we had to go all in! Taking inspiration from the tractors and farm equipment toys we had around the house, I put together a simple spread of treats and snacks representing all things John Deere!
For the cake, using a flat cardboard sheet and mini cupcakes, I arranged them into a rough tractor shape. Using tinted frosting and piping gel, the tractor came to life.
Our guests were treated to sugar cookies (with green and yellow sprinkles) in a tractor loader bucket, ‘hay bale’ rice crispy treats loaded onto a semi flatbed, and corn nuts in the grain hauler wagon right from the combine! Of course we had to include a farm fresh veggie tray and being from the Midwest every good dairy farmer puts out a cheese tray!
Check out these simple cups we made ourselves. Using dollar store colored cups and stickers, we made our own themed cups for a just a few bucks! It was a fun project to keep small hands occupied and easily included him in the party prep!
With few toys and a bit of prep, my not so little anymore ‘farmer kid’ had a fun birthday party. Everyone had a great time and loved the personal touches!
