Red Tractor Themed Picnic Party

Crate a Party

Take a moment to check out this 'Red Tractor Picnic' party we helped organise for a 3 year old boys birthday.


The small playground in Kensington Gardens  was chosen as the party venue, which I was really excited about. It being the first 'red tractor' themed party I'd been asked to organise, I was very surprised at how hard it was to find decorations to fit such a specific theme. It was time to get my thinking cap on...! 


Here are some ideas I ended up with ... 


-  A lovely big red and white gingham picnic mat made a perfect seating area for the children

- I turned a few of our Crate a Party crates upside down to make little tables to display the food. Fake grass runner cut offs and hessian material made cute looking tablecloths for them. 

- Small bunches of sunflowers in glass jars. 

-Farmyard themed napkins, cups and paper plates. 

- Red plastic cutlery were displayed in stainless steel pots labelled 'Pitch Forks and Shovels' (in keeping with the tractor theme)

- Mini haybales scattered around the table.

- Cake Create on Westbourne Grove provided us with a delicious red tractor cake which went down a treat.

-  A big bunch of dark green and red balloons, with, of course a red tractor foil balloon. 

- I managed to source a small children's picnic table which came in handy towards the end of the party for tired parents to sit down at. 

-Red and white stripey paper straws

- Bespoke tractor decorations to put in the cups and the flower pots.

- Handmade red tractor themed bunting with the birthday boys name on. 

-To top it off, our catering company did a lovely job with the food providing us with jam + peanut butter sandwiches, tomato + mascarpone pasta salad, pesto + spinach pasta salad, fruit kebabs, carrot + cucumber sticks and large bowls of popcorn!



Luckily the weather turned out lovely! Plan B was to have a picnic at home, which wouldn't have been nearly as fun! 


Until next time,
