A Western CowBOY’S Birthday Party

Never Think About What to Make for Dinner for the Next Two Months with My
Lazy Cooking Bundle

Yeehaw! I reckon this western cowBOY’S birthday party may be the cutest cowboy party you’ve ever seen.

When party planning mom, Michelle, of Michelle’s Party Plan-It, bought her son a cowboy costume after Halloween, he became obsessed with cowboys and requested a cowboy party for his 4th birthday.

Michelle went crazy (I love it!) over all of the details, recreating a replica Wild West town from cardboard and western themed decorations. A printable invitation and party décor were made to match.

The most delicious looking cake, cupcakes and cowboy confections were on hand for hungry guests.

So grab your hat and giddy-up on over to view the creative details of Liams 4th Round-Up!

She decorated chairs with bandanas and cowboy hats. Atop a rustic burlap runner, Michelle added activity placemats, pie tin “plates”, cookie-filled treat bags and a clever paper cutlery and napkin pocket she made.

I love the twine detailing! I also spy really cute milk bottles accessorized with custom wraps, raffia and cow print paper straws from Pretty My Party. Did you notice the personalized “WANTED” posters? So fun!
