Vintage Western Cowboy Birthday Party

Tuesday, January 24, 2012

Yee Haw... Welcome to our Vintage Western Cowboy Birthday Party Collection. We have so many fun treats and desserts to make your Cowboy Birthday fun and special for your little sheriff.

We wanted to create a slight different color scheme.... with blue and brown with a little red. {You can easily add a red backdrop and make the main color red with a little blue}.

How to get the look:
Add galvanized steel containers and rusty rod iron items to create a vintage feel.
We use wood veneer candles as the base to our cake stands.
Use neutral colors for backdrop and table cloth

We made a wanted poster with our little guys picture in it. It is available in our shop as well!

Items included in our printable pack are: Happy Birthday banner in a bandana paisley print

Howdy! Chow down sign

cupcake wrappers in paisley bananda print, horse shoes with sheriff badge, red and beige plaid and cow print. 

Boots decals:  These can be used as favor toppers, tags, attach to a paper bag.... so many options. We used these as favor toppers. We attached a clear bag to the back and filled with candy rocks and gummy snakes {or in other words.... gummy worms} for "there's a snake in my boot" favors. The kids LOVED these! 

Favor toppers: {4 designs} filled with blueberry cookies... These are one of my favorite cookies!

For the sign bases we made "wheel spokes" {The wheel print is included in our printable collection}. Just cut a cylinder foam in half. Cut the wheel in half and then glue with rubber cement onto the foam.

Since we were doing a Vintage Western Cowboy Birthday.... I wanted to add a little bit of the Wild Wild West to it. I came up with Gold Rush: panning for gold. The kids has so much fun with this!!!

We started out with the mini pie tins. Fill the tin with 5-7 chocolate gold nuggets from Hershey's. We then filled with candy rocks so they dig and find the "gold" in the rocks. This was a really fun activity for the kids.... that tasted good as well!

These were my favorite treat by far and with all the adults! I made peanut butter brownie satchels. This is what sparked the idea for the whole collection. I was making these sweets at my sister's house and thought.... this would be such a cool dessert for a cowboy collection!

We staged the satchels on a wood board and placed cans as the base (again bring in the galvanized steel). This is an inexpensive base. What's so great is that they come in 3 different sizes that you could make tiered  dessert displays.  Here is the recipe for the Peanut Butter and Jelly Brownie dessert.

The Drink Well....

We filled a large galvanize bucket with peanuts! You could have mini steel buckets for them to take a bucket of peanuts with their root beer.

Pin It!
