Here’s what Stephanie told us about the party:
For this birthday party we chose to do a Cowgirl theme in Pink and Brown. Wanted poster Invitations set the mood and read, “WANTED Katelyn “Wild West” for crimes including shoot-outs, bank robbery, and turning 5!!” A handmade burlap wreath greeted guests as they arrived at the house. The birthday girl was decked out in a handmade tutu in pink and brown. Each guest chose a cowgirl (or cowboy!) hat, a bandanna, sheriffs badge, and a mustache!
The “Watering Hole” consisted of “Cactus Juice” (Strawberry Lemonade) served in mason jars with pink striped straws, and pink polka dotted wrapped water bottles. The main food table was set up with an old wooden box from a local tulip farm that went out of business, small hay bales, and serving ware from Home Goods. I decided that pies were more western than cake, so we served Razzleberry, Strawberry-Cherry, and blueberry pies! We had “Fools Gold” (goldfish crackers), Mini boxes of Raisins, “Cow Pies” (brownie bites), Oatmeal Raisin cookies, “Gold Nuggets” (Hershey’s gold nuggets), and caramel corn served in bandanna patterned cupcake liners. We had our fire pit going out in the yard for our little cowpokes to make S’mores in.
The kids played 4 games; including “Kate’s Rootin’ Tootin’ Shoot-Out” where they had to shoot targets I made using my cricut machine on tin cans with a little play gun. They had pony rides around the yard, and played “Snake in my Boot” (cowboy boot shaped Pinata), and the favorite game of the day was when they “Panned for Gold” in sand and were able to take their loot home with them in small fabric bags that I sewed using pink and brown fabrics.
After all the gifts were opened and food was eaten guests went home with pink favor boxes filled with cherry M&M’s that wished them all “Happy Trails” from “Wild West Katelyn”
