What’s a cowboy party if  you’re guests aren’t dressing the part?  A quick easy way to get everyone into the spirit is to Gear up Partner!

 1) sheriff badge, 2) gear up sign, 3) hats, 4) bandannas, 5) child image

Once your guests are lookin’ the part, they can start feeling the part while partaking in some real cowboy activities like lassoin’:

1) pony, 2) pony corral sign, 3) pony diy

 smashin’‘??

and wrappin’ things up with a smore’s cookout around the campfire!

For favors we mentioned these little smore’s party favors during camping week and they’re too cute not to mention again:

1) smore’s favor, 2) bandanna favor image

I can just picture it now, all your little buckaroos and their gunny sacks filled with cowboy treats as they’re sent along the long winding happy trail of life!??  Too much fun!

It’s all about the setting when it comes to food and drink for the cowboy party.  Somehow a regular old BBQ becomes so much more western with the addition of bandannas for napkins, metal food trays, hay bails for sitting (or a for salads/fruit/etc.) and lots of silly food tents!

1) custom food tents, 2) beanies and weenies, 3) ants on a log, 4) hot dogs, 5) corn on the cob

We talked about this idea during camping party week (and actually a lot of our camping party ideas pair great with the cowboy theme), but setting up a trail mix station is a festive addition playing on the whole “happy trails” cowboy saying.

We can customize the trail mix station sign and centerpiece wraps to match the cowboy theme and all you need is some tin cans to recreate this trail mix magic!

For sweets we found a variety of cowboy cookies and cake pops online that are way too cute to pass up.  Loving all this cow print:

 1) cake pops, 2) candy3) cookies

Finish things off at the waterin’ hole where your little buckaroos can re-hydrate and get ready for the day’s events!   Our coordinating party straws never looked so cute:

1) pop shop straws, custom food tents, 2) mason jar drinks, 3) coke image, 4) coke crate

Old fashioned soda, mason jars filled with ice cold lemonade and water bottles with coordinating water bottle labels (care of yours truly) will fashion up the fanciest waterin’ hole this side of the Mississippi!

As for tomorrow, get on back here for activity and favor ideas that will wear your little buckaroo’s out and send them on their merry little way.  Happy Trails to you… until we meet again!
