It’s a Cowboy Boy Baby Shower

By  | Last Updated:  

Giddy on over and check out these cowboy baby shower party ideas submitted by Sheryl, of Sheryl Bjorn Photography. Through her use of western prints and rustic textures, Sheryl designed a perfectly decorated hoedown to welcome the newest little cowboy-to-be in town. A down home meal of favorite comfort food, paired with delicious cupcakes and beverages from the local “watering hole”, made this cowboy baby shower something not to be missed.

Sheryl incorporated all of these elements throughout her cowboy baby shower space and many additional theme-specific and custom details. In fact, Sheryl mentioned that she made all of the amazing party signs herself using her Silhouette Cameo machine.

The dining area was decked out with red and blue hanging lanterns. Eating tables were kept simple with a rustic chic design. Burlap and paisley fabrics really popped against white tablecloths. Gorgeous fresh flower centerpieces were attractively displayed in blue mason jars wrapped in burlap and coordinating ribbon; fresh flowers always add a touch of sophistication. Licorice and jelly beans served in color coordinating bowls provided a sweet treat for snacking while waiting for the grub!

Speaking of the grub, the meal was centered on a mouth-watering menu of comfort food favorites like fried chicken and potato salad, served up western-style in pie tins instead of dinner plates. These were a budget friendly score from a dollar store online!

The food was creatively displayed in tin serving pieces and on hay bales. I love that bandanas were used as napkins and were wrapped up in burlap bags with the utensils. Isn’t the “It’s a cowboy” banner adorable and so clever with the play on words? Little details make such a fun statement.

Dessert consisted of red velvet cupcakes decorated with monogram “A’s” for baby Austin—such a sweet touch of personalization!

Parched guests could quench their thirst at the adorable “water’n hole” which served up ice tea and lemonade in large beverage dispensers, accented with ribbons and printed labels. I love how Sheryl added height to her table by using hay bales and wooden crates to display the beverage dispensers. Mason jars are a huge party trend and are such a cute alternative for regular drinking glasses. Sheryl added sweet detailing to each Mason jar and topped them off with an adorable striped paper straw. The pennant bunting hanging against the weathered fence backdrop added a fun pop of color to this space.

For take-home favors, guests were spoiled with homemade blackberry jam, packaged in small mason jars, prepared by the guest of honor’s sister.

Sheryl and some friends have a great idea worth sharing. When anyone has a party, non-consumable items left from the party are boxed up. Everything theme related is party ready in one spot for the next user. The group has several party ready boxes floating around their community at any given time—a terrific green way to save.
