Cowboy Birthday Party


Cowboy Party Ideas & Decorations

  1. Use red and white checkered tablecloths, use cowboy hats and balloon bouquets as centerpieces and red bandanas as napkins and tray liners.
  2. Decorate the tables with rubber snakes and plastic spiders.
  3. Decorate with Wanted Posters around the party. For a fun touch use pictures of the birthday boy. The birthday boy will also get a kick out of seeing mom and dad on their own Wanted Posters!
  4. Use toy horses as balloon weights.
  5. If your party is outside use bales of hay around the party area to add authenticity to the party décor.
  6. In keeping with your cowboy party theme use cowboy rope the same way you would use streamers.
  7. A fun party prop and a great way to take photos is to use the wanted poster prop. This is a great take home for the kids
