Barns are being used more and more for purposes that have absolutely nothing to do with farming. If someone told you 30 years ago that they were building a new barn or Kentucky farm building strictly as an event venue, you probably would have told them that they were nuts!
But today, barn events are very trendy for large gatherings like reunions, birthdays, anniversaries, and graduations. Not to mention, weddings at barn event centers are becoming more popular each day it seems. Many people who live in urban areas simply love the romantic charm and setting created by a rural wedding at a farm building in Kentucky.
So if you are thinking about hosting a big event at your custom pole barn in Kentucky, you may be wondering, “where do I start?” Well, here are some tips on how to make your next barn party one that your guests will be talking about for many days to come.
Outdoor string lights help add some ambiance to a back deck or patio, and they can do the same thing for your barn party. String lights along the exterior wall and crossing over the main walking areas will add some festive lighting to your event, no matter what the occasion. Combined with the fact that many barns don’t have great lighting, to begin with; string lights will be a great way to brighten up the party at your Kentucky farm building.
If the weather is going to be favorable, you could also run strings of lights outdoors to ensure that you create a beautiful setting for guests to socialize. If you find a nice flat area outside the pole barn, it might even end up being a better spot for the dance floor than inside. Outdoors you will not be limited by space, and partying under the stars is a scene that just cannot be matched.
For any type of barn party, flowers should be a must for your décor. If you want to go with a heavy barn/farm theme, sunflowers are always a great option. However, if you are wanting to stay extremely classy, there are numerous other options that will get the job done. Be sure to speak to a local florist to find some of the best seasonal flower options that would make great additions to a party at your farm building in Kentucky.
If you want that authentic country feel, make sure you have food that goes along with that theme. Fresh veggies from the farm should be an absolute must, like potatoes, green beans, and sweet corn. Your entrees could be a combination of fried chicken, barbecued meats, steaks, whatever you feel best represents the theme of your party. Your options are truly endless when you are hosting an event at your Kentucky agricultural building.
