Cowboy party

I have been working on my new business plan so taking a break to post this party is a pleasure!! Does anybody else get no sleep??? As promised, Melissa is back with another DIY party this time for her son. It's a cowboy themed party~I love classic themes ...they never go out of style! I am currently planning a Country Curious George party for a 1 year old in September so thanks Melissa for some great ideas!! Here is the party in Melissa words: I made “wanted” signs for all the kids. I found a website that gives you your own cowboy name. http://cs.calgarystampede.com/stampede-now/online-games/nickname-generator.html I thought some were pretty fun. Before the party, I took pictures of each of the kids in cowboy hats and bandanas and then used those for their custom wanted poster. The kids really liked them. I LOVE this idea!!! I will be stealing...I mean using this one!
I found the bandana stars at Hobby Lobby at Christmas time. They are actually ornaments. I used a lot of the bandana theme. I plan on using black, white and yellow bandanas for the Country Curious George party~wish I could have find these stars in those colors!! Too cute!

I made the cake and the cupcakes. I am no cake designer by any means so I thought I’d try to make the sheriff’s star. My husband is a police officer so I tried to use a lot of the western sheriff motif as much as possible.


Real cute signs!

Here is another one of her posters showing pictures every month of the birthday boy!


My husband would not let me get a pony for pony rides so I settled for a saddle from a friend of mine who has horses. I tied horse helium balloons to it as the alternative.

The tags are from ciaobambino on etsy. I LOVE her things! She is so great to work with and does such a fabulous job. I have used her for most of my parties. I will have to check her out! Cute cowboy hat favors filled with goodies!!

Thanks Melissa for the parties. Many blessings to you and your beautiful family. Stay in touch so I can see what you do next!!
BTW, I have read that many of you want to see more of my parties. The bulk of my clients book my signature theme parties. I have stated this before but I only share my custom parties since I am a theme party business with 8 signature theme parties ~ it would be quite repetitious to show them every week. Although I try to change them up weekly ~ they have many similarities (we change out colors, pattern, etc..)
Also, many of my clients do not consent to me showing their parties on the Internet. However, with the new party space, I look forward to showing you a whole lot more! Since now we are expanding...more on that to come. I believe in old-fashioned values, going the extra mile and the execution of unparalleled details.
Only 14 more days until my birthday...please don't forget about the Tiffany necklace contest. Spread the word....put it on your blogs....twitter....FB...I will be your friend!!! LOL

  2. When I saw the poster I knew I'd love this party. Why didn't they have such cute things when my little cowboy was young!
