There are many gals out there who dream of the Wild West; a cowgirl atop her trusty steed, lassoing wee heifers, and defending her homestead. Celebrate her birthday in western style with a Cowgirl Birthday Party.
For cute invitations, cut out boot shapes from tan cardstock and decorate with glittery black markers. Write your party details on the back. Another idea? Use fabric markers to write onto colorful bandannas! Or, of course, you can purchase your invitations along with coordinating party supplies like tableware or banners.
Your galloping cowgirls will love activities like a Lasso Contest (see what they can round up), Annie Oakley Sharp Shootin’ (with squirt guns, of course), and Pin the Tail on the Horse. If you can swing it, a visit to a local ranch or horse stable would be amazing – learn about the proper care of horses and even go on a trail ride! Decorating their own cowgirl vests (out of paper bags) with glitter, markers, and sequins makes for great entertainment, too. Don’t forget to send the kids home with their own party favors filled with western-themed goodies.
For a delicious menu that embraces the rancher’s life, serve up BBQ pulled pork or chili, corn on the cob, baked beans, fruit kabobs, and campfire roasted marshmallows. Them thare chitlins’ will be pure-t filled up, I tell ya!
A Cowgirl Birthday Party can’t be anything but absolute fun!
