Plan you next hoedown, square dance, barn raising, country/western dance, or fiesta with us. A western theme can be used for a big shindig or a small gathering. It works great for birthdays, anniversaries, and even weddings. We’ll take you through some easy-to-do ideas and give you great suggestions on what to choose for your western party decorations. Just remember, you don’t have to live out west to feel like you’re there. We’ll help you plan a western themed party that’s sure to be a hit with your guests. And a western party doesn't always have to be about cowboys and cattle. You can use western party elements to plan a horse themed party or even a fiesta themed party.
Wild West Party
Welcome your guests to the Wild Wild West with an almost genuine
western party sign. Each sign is made from a thin vinyl material with low-tack adhesive on the back. That means it won’t become a permanent decoration for your party entrance. It can be re-positioned and removed when the party is over. It has a realistic weathered appearance and a blank space to personalize with the guest of honor’s name in a permanent marker.
If you need a great idea for showing your guests around your party, try some
old western sign cutouts. A set of four includes printing on both sides and real places you would come across in the old west. You can put a Hot Bath sign above the bathroom, a Hitching Post sign where guests can park their cars, or a Telegraph Office sign above your telephone or computer. Transform your kitchen or an entire section of your party into a saloon with a saloon sign above the doorway that features a western saloon fringed door curtain.
Guests will feel like they’ve just pushed their way into a real saloon when you take a
paneling room setter and a set of western saloon props and hang them on the walls of your saloon. Set up some card tables that can double as eating and card playing areas. Use a roll of brown plastic table covering to make for easy clean-up when the party ends.
A cowboy party can be for adults or kids, but if your child has a hankerin’ to be a cowboy we have lots of great western decorations and party supplies that can help make it easy on you. Invite all the kids using a western style round up invitation to give them all the party details. Fill up the envelope with some
confetti cactus' and seal it with some of our bullet hole stickers. When the little buckaroos show up for the party, hand each of them a cowboy sheriff’s hat and a metal sheriff’s badge personalized with their name.
Use an assortment of our western decorations to create a realistic western party area. If your party is outside, hang up some
western red bandanna pennant banners and wrap or staple rusty barbed wire garland around everything. It looks so real but it’s actually made from fabric coated in a rubberized material to give it that rusty appearance. Inflate a couple cactus decorations and hang up a cowboy boot pinata filled with western munchies, like mini beef sticks, foil wrapped chocolate coins, money buttercream mints, western buttercream mints, or licorice coils. Your little cowpokes will have a fun time taking turns at trying to bust open the boot and get to all the goodies inside.
Planning an indoor western party? Our western decorating kit is an easy way to start off your cowboy party plan. It contains dangling decorations,
western sign and picture cutouts, horseshoe cutouts, metallic garlands, and a jointed cowboy cutout that stands 3 feet tall. If you want to create an outdoor western scene indoors, the Wild West Insta-Theme is the answer. Simply browse our scene setter category and choose the Wild West Insta-Theme. You’ll see a sample of what your backdrop will look like and a list of all the components that make up this large wall decoration. Pick and choose the pieces to make the scene you want for your western party.
Do you like the western party idea but not interested in ten-gallon hats and gun-slinging cowboys? Well, than grab a sombrero and get ready to shake your maracas. Add a little Mexican flavor to your party and create your very own backyard fiesta. This type of party can be colorful, fun, and informal. Use
cactus decorations, chili pepper decorations, and anything in the colors red, white, and green to adorn your party.
chili pepper garland, and chili pepper whirls to hang from the ceiling or your porch, mini poly-stone chili pepper photo/balloon holders that can hold down balloons or double as a picture holder, and even chili pepper sunglasses to wear while greeting your guests. Set up a buffet table with Fiesta Chili Pepper plates and napkins. Load up plastic chili pepper trays with spicy salsa and chips or hand each guest a plastic chili pepper margarita glass filled with their favorite drink. If you don’t want all chili peppers, fill up some plastic cactus margarita glasses and stir them up with a plastic cactus drink stirrer.
Horse Themed Party
For a horse crazy little girl, a horse themed birthday party is a great option. We carry fabulous horse decorations that are just right for your little one’s big day. Make some wild horse invitations to send stuffed with
heart confetti in her favorite color. Use the same confetti to decorate the tables around a couple birthday Gleam ‘N Burst centerpieces. Coordinate your Wild Horses invitations with your tableware. We offer Wild Horses hot/cold cups, dessert plates, lunch plates, lunch napkins, beverage napkins, and even a tablecover.
Make sure you pick up a couple packs of the matching Thank You notes to send to all your guests to thank them for the birthday gifts. Hang a bunch of
17 inch foil horseshoe cutouts or use them to decorate the walls, windows, and doors of the party. We even have horse cutouts that can be hung or used as wall decorations, too. When it’s time to leave, send each girl home with a horse beads and horseshoe medallion necklace or an inflatable brown horse to blow up and keep.
