Western Theme Party Ideas
By Dee Schrock
Howdy! Here are a few ideas for rowdy, rootin-tootin western theme party.
Western theme parties are one of the most popular theme parties- sure to go over well with all your guests.
This popular theme party can be prepared in less than a day, or in only a few hours for those high energy hosts!
Welcome each guest with a bandana and sheriff's badge.
Think rustic and hearty! Here are some great ideas:
* Old lanterns, jugs, and bales of hay
* Kerosene lamps
* Inflatable cactus
* Saloon sign made out of paper bag or wood-burned
* Red gingham tablecloths
* Luminaries or fiesta lights
A western theme party wouldn't be complete without the standard cowboy hats, vests, and bandanas. A star badge, lasso, and large belt buckles are great accessories.
* Game of horseshoes
* Roping & lasso competitions
* "Pan for gold" in a sandbox (gold spray-painted rocks)
Glue a thin piece of rope around the edges of your invitations to create a lasso-type look. A nice touch is to personalize the guests name in cowboy lingo, such as Packin' Pete and Pistol Penny. It's fun for the guest and they tend to get a kick out of it.
Food & Drink
Serve snacks in miniature cowboy hats and serve hearty western cuisine.
Rootin' tootin' country music can be played in the background for square dancing or line dancing.
Have a wild western theme party!
