The country or the western party theme is very popular as it is a perfect idea for a birthday, anniversary or even a holiday party. Be it adults, youngsters or children, everyone loves to dress up like cowboys and cowgirls.
A real cowboy western party in a barn is almost incomparable. If a real barn is not feasible, you can even have a party in your backyard. You can decorate the surroundings accordingly to create a suitable atmosphere.
You need to send out invitations that are creative and appropriate for the party theme. An exciting idea is to make a 'Most Wanted' card with the picture of the guest. Give special effects to the invitation by burning the edges. Secondly, buy cow bells or sheriff badges and write the names of your guests on it to make personalized party invitations.
You can have pictures of a farm, a sunset, western towns, etc. enlarged, printed, and hung in the background to create the ambiance.
Make a cardboard door frame to create a 'saloon'. Use thick ropes to drape the walls or coil around pillars.
Common party favors include cowboy hats and bandannas. Put on some country music and play party games around the fire. 'Horseshoes' is a popular game for such parties. You can even hire a country music band.
With these ideas, you can create a rustic environment and be ready to have some fun, in the country style!
