Cowboy Party, Part 2

• 30 December 2008

I experienced a small camera malfunction when originally uploading the pictures from my son's 4th birthday party. I thought I'd totally lost them...but the other day they reappeared so I wanted to post a little "Cowboy Party P.S." if you will :)

A few notes...

* I served clementines with the cupcakes to not only add color and interest, but because the song, "Oh my darlin' Clementine" seemed kind of yes? Regardless, they'll never know :)

* Grandpere dressed up as a "real cowboy" and surprised the crowd with his amazing lassoing capabilities :)

* Hobby horses provide great interim entertainment...I'm not sure what we would've done without it! (Thanks Jen)

* I hired a baker to make some Western-themed sugar cookies, which I then placed in clear cellophane bags (best thing I did was outsource these cookies!). I tied them up with "wild west" ribbon and a homemade tag made out of vintage-y looking scrapbook paper. Once I had those taken care of I placed them all in a cowboy hat flipped on it's back (again, thank you Grandpere!).

You can view the other pictures from the party here.

Robin, I found the little cowboy at a party store chain called Zurchers. It's over near our Costco near downtown SLC.

Thanks Stephanie. I will be on the look out for one here in Charleston, SC. My son and I had fun looking at the b'day pics. And I am enjoying reading your blog. I am making a few of your favorite recipes this week. Happy New Year! Robin
