The right decorations can make all the difference at your Western party! Base your Western decoration colors off the green and yellow color scheme or use cowboy decorations and farm centerpieces. Find more great Western decoration ideas below:
Create a barnyard or farm atmosphere buy stacking hay bales and other farm equipment. Use hay bales as chairs or place them under wood planks to create a food table.
Hang farm banners at the entrance to the party. Make posters or cutouts of cowboys and Western items to hang around the party area.
Set up picnic tables outside to dine under the sun just like ranchers and farmhands. Instead of napkins, use bandanas to match a cowboy theme.
Have guests wear cowboy hats instead of wearing traditional party hats. Let guests take home their hats as part of their western favors.
Group sets of red and cow print balloons around the party area. Include a few cow balloons for a touch of fun in your Western decorations!
In addition to pizza, chicken fingers, hamburgers or hotdogs, you can add some Western themed food into the mix. Here are some suggestions.
Use fun names to label ordinary Western party foods. Serve snacks like "Farm Fries," "Hay bale Rice Cereal Treats," and "Cowboy Trail Mix (trail mix or cereal mix)."
Cowboys live off the land, so serve some farm fresh veggies on a platter! If you're having an outdoor party, grill up corn or other vegetables to fit with your BBQ. Continue with the farm theme with milk, deviled eggs, watermelon and apples. Homemade apple pie is sure to be another hit at your family event.
Serve milk or juice in our western theme cups or red Solo cups for fun!
Fit a cowboy theme for your family get-together with snacks served in a picnic basket. You can take your food to the next level by serving Tex-Mex themed foods like nachos, tacos, and salsa.
Create a modern Western cake with our tractor cake pan or top a sheet cake with farm candles. A cake can be a great way to celebrate a family birthday or reunion event.
