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 cowboy-ish...no? 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!).
