Cowboy Barnyard Birthday Party Ideas

So… this has got to be one of the cutest country western birthday parties I’ve ever seen!

Cleverly dubbed “My Little Buckaroo is Two” by the birthday boy’s mom – Chrissy – this ultra-creative shindig has everything from a “General Store” treat buffet to adorable vintage stick ponies for the pint-sized guests to gallop into the party “cowboy-style”!

“I wanted to have a western hoedown for my little boy, Aidan Jacob. He’s my little cowboy, so we came up with the idea of a “My Little Buckaroo is 2!” party theme.

DECORATIONS
My goal was to create an atmosphere that made guests feel like they were in the South, and I wanted the works: ponies, BBQ, and bales of hay! Most of the children wore plaid shirts and they really looked like cute little cowboys and cowgirls in their hats!

The invitations for this party were made by wood, and inspired by this post on HWTM blog:

The invites were designed by Zusy Zamora from Marizette paperie. Wood was purchased at Michaels, and Zusy ironed the design she created onto each piece of wood.  They were mailed to guests in brown kolocraft boxes, which was a huge hit!

The tables were decorated with red and white plaid linen. Settings included a bandana, cowboy hat, and a sheriff badge.
