Turning Four: Cowboy Birthday Party Ideas





































Watching my one and only little guy turn four was a little bittersweet...I was so sad to see him one year older! He has been such a joy these past few years and I couldn't ask for a cuter little boy. Granted, I know no different, but any little person who spontaneously gives me kisses and hugs is a keeper :)

Sometimes when planning parties, all it takes is one "ingredient" to solidify the theme. It could be a set of invitations, a color scheme, a particular favor, a decorative object, etc. I've planned entire parties around cute things found in the $1 aisle at Target...like L.'s "monkey party" last year. This year I planned L.'s party around some "Wild West" ribbon on sale at Michaels several months ago. At the time he'd ridden a horse for the first time and was in heaven. I thought, "eureka!"...that will be our theme this year. Also, I find that when I take the time to plan a theme well in advance, I am able to plan a much better party all-around. Advanced planning also gives me time to find the best stuff at the best price.

Oh, and if you're local and want that "Pin the Spur on the Boot" board, it's yours. I can't throw it away. My friend Susan put so much heart and soul into it :)

Also, I'd love to mail anyone the "Country Western Party Music CD". It's perfect for your child's next "Wild West" or "Cowboy/girl" themed party. I'm happy to pass it along now that ours is all done :)

Many thanks to the friends and family who helped me pull this off in a jiffy!

Looks like you had a wonderful party! I just decided today to have a circus themed party for my 5 year old next month. I was inspired by the idea from the Hostess with the Mostess blog to give a box of animal crackers as the party favor!

Thanks guys!!

Yes, I did make the cupcakes :) It's not hard...seriously. And the recipe is from Magnolia Bakery...so is the vanilla frosting. It's the "Vanilla Vanilla".

Hey if no one has asked for the board I would love it. How is that cute little family? Let me know!
Thanks,
Hilary

Hilary, it was gone as of tomorrow...so sorry. I would've loved to give it to you. Merry Christmas!

I would love the CD if no one else has snagged it. My son wants his fifth party to be a cowboy one. Or if you could let me know where you got the CD that would be helpful too. Your son's party was too cute.

Stephanie said...

Hi Robin,

Someone did email me about the cd...in fact I already mailed it. Sorry! I just recovered a few more pictures I thought I'd lost from my camera. I'll upload them next week. Merry Christmas!
