Western Cowgirl Birthday Party Feature

Today’s party feature goes to Jess of Craftiness is Not Optional (you may remember her from this Mermaid Party). She created this amazing Cowgirl/Western Birthday Party for her daughter and went all out! She really is the DIY queen. From the fabric garland to the felt horse shoe game, Jess thought of everything. Here is Jess describing the party prep,

When the guests came into the backyard, they were greeted by some funny cowpoke advice. Then the little ones were invited to gear up in some straw cowboy/girl hats and bandanas. I made the centerpieces for the tables out of salt containers wrapped in fabric with flowers inserted into holes poked into the top. Ingenious, right? ? I cut the galloping horses out on my Silhouette. We had hot dogs (turkey and regular), and lots of toppings for them! I bought some of those squirty bottles and put in BBQ sauce, ketchup, mayo, mustard, relish, and a knock off of J Dawg’s sauce. (haven’t ever tried their hot dogs so I don’t know if it was close but it was sure tasty!) Then I had chopped onions, tomatoes, and cheese to go on top.We also had watermelon, homemade mac n’ cheese, homemade baked beans, and a “tumbleweed” salad. For the favors (also each kiddo got a hat and bandana) I bought some gingham bags, then folded over the top, a tan cupcake liner, then clothes-pinned a card stock horse silhouette on the front. Inside the bags were some Cow Tales candy, horse lolly, horse stickers, mini horse toy, mint candies, and bubbles wrapped in washi tape.

    While being fashionable, several brides prefer a full skirt
    dress with a more exclusive style, and there are a lot of those you can purchase.
    However one should try knowing certain things before they actually start purchasing clothes from online shopping, because everyone must know what they are actually looking for.
