Buffalo Bills Western Birthday Party Ideas

Buffalo Bills Western Birthday Bash

Western themed birthday cakeIf you are interesting in having a straight up hoe down, then a western themed birthday is certainly the way to go. So, put on your cowboy boots, grab a pair of chaps, and get ready to have a rodeo! Let us lead you greenhorn through the best way to throw together a good old fashioned Buffalo Bill Bash with these awesome western birthday party ideas.

Invites:
Throw down some western themed invites for your guests so that they know what to expect. You can go to a store like Party City and grab some invites that look like a cowboy boot. Maybe a ten gallon hat, a barrel, or a cactus themed invitation would be a great idea as well.

Games:
Wild West Themed games can be fun and exciting. A western themed party is one of the few parties where you can justify a game of pin the tail on the donkey. You can also do burlap sack races, play a game of horseshoes, and even have a cow roping contest. If you can’t find real cows to rope up, try painting milk bottles with cow print and then using rings of rope to play a game of cowboy themed ring toss. Games are easy to theme for birthdays. So, get creative and have a blast!

Food:
Break out the chips and salsa for this one! Add a few peanuts and pretzels to the mix to snack on and you officially have the easiest food mix for themed snacks. For a main course, hot dogs and hamburgers work great. Other things you might try are cornbread based foods, stuffed peppers or star shaped cookies for those deputies at your party.

Decorations:
Western decorations are fun! Add a few bandanas, hay stacks, and cow print and you’re already there. If you want to take it a little further, you can add horse shoes, cacti, cowboy hats, a few lassos and some wanted posters around the venue as well.

Entertainment:
There are many options for entertainment at a western themed event. You can rent a mechanical bull, have a western themed bouncy house, get a line dancer to instruct your guests on some western dances, and you can even have out a petting zoo. Other things are great too! Imagine a caricature artist draw your guests as cowboys and cowgirls or even as cows! Have a balloon artist make hats, lassos, cows, guns, and vests for the guests or a face painter paint horse shoes, horses, and even butterflies.

Get those boots out and get ready for a rodeo, petting zoo, and a whip-cracking good time. A western theme can be fun and exciting for everyone. Get a cowboy boot western cake and some goodie bags and you’re good to go.
