Seasonal Themes: Decorate according to the four seasons in Stardew Valley—spring blossoms, summer sunflowers, fall leaves and pumpkins, winter snowflakes and icicles.

Stardew Valley Party Favors: Give out small plant pots with seed packets (I think these are super cute giveaway ideas!) or small colorful containers with gummy worms, colorful flower suckers, or garden-themed snacks.

Forageable Snacks: Bowls of berries, nuts, and trail mix that look like the foraged items from the game.

Fishing Tackle Tray: Create a seafood platter with items like shrimp cocktail, crab legs, fish sticks, and sushi to represent the fishing aspect of the game.

Or, make individual grab-and-go “Snackle Boxes” like these filled charcuterie board of snacks for each guest.

Miner’s Delight: Offer up rock candy, chocolate ore chunks (aka: brownie bites), and dirt pudding cups with mini shovel spoons to represent the mining.

Pierre’s General Store Pastries: Have a selection of pastries and sweets that you might find in Pierre’s store, such as croissants, cookies shaped like farm animals or animal crackers, and cinnamon rolls.

Gus’s Stardrop Saloon Soup and Salad Bar: Set up a soup and salad bar where guests can mix their own ingredients, reminiscent of the meals served at the saloon.

Joja Cola and Popcorn Bar: As a nod to Joja Mart, serve cola and popcorn, but perhaps with a twist—like homemade chocolate popcorn or a popcorn bar with different popcorn flavorings and different soda flavors.

Foraged Salad: Make a salad with ingredients that look like they could be foraged from the valley, such as mixed greens, edible flowers, and nuts.

Stardew Valley Party Games And Activities

PRO PARTY TIP: You can also give away the Official Stardew Valley Cookbook, Stardew Valley stickers, Stardew Valley plushies like this or this, and this Stardew Valley map puzzle as a party prizes!

Scavenger Hunt: Create a scavenger hunt around your party area where guests can find hidden items that are common in the game, like “crops”, “ores”, or “artifacts”. Assign point values to each item and let guests spend their points value at a prize table.


Mining For Points: Transform a dimly lit corner or dark room with fun gems and stones like this that can mimic the mines. Provide battery-operated little lanterns like this for a party scavenger hunt. Great for a team game where guest work together to be the first to find specific things from the mine on the list.

Fishing Game: Set up a corner with a small blue baby pool and fishing sets like this to let your party guests fish and simulate Stardew Valley gameplay. Write prices on the different fish (or things they catch) and they can “sell” them for things on a prize table.

Garden Competition: Have a garden competition where guests get to “harvest” things grown in the garden.

To play, put potting soil and/or sand in a small baby pool. Then, bury garden themed items in the soil/sand.

Each person (or team) gets names of what they have to find. The trick is the player is blindfolded and must feel in the dirt to try to “harvest” what is on the list.

PRO PARTY TIP: Play fruits and vegetables like this are perfect for it.

Crafting Workshop: Provide materials for guests to create their own flower crowns, paint flower pots, or paint rocks to look like gemstones.

Stardew Valley Trivia: Prepare trivia questions based on the game for a fun team quiz game.

Gold Pan Panning: Set up a small sandbox with water and hidden colored gems, rocks and pay dirt. Guests can use sieves like this to pan for their gold, referencing the panning that can be done in the game’s rivers, and keep whatever fun things they find!

Gifting Game: Similar to how players give gifts to townspeople in the game, have each guest bring a small, wrapped item. (Put a limit on the gift, like $10.)

You can then do a gift exchange (like a white elephant gift exchange) where people get to choose to open a new gift or “steal” one that is already open.

Geode Cracking: Get bulk geodes like this and guest can crack them open (and keep them!) like break rocks in the game.
