Western Decorating Ideas:

Of course, the perfect place for a western theme party is in a Barn! If you don't have a barn, you can create a western atmosphere!

On the outside: - Decorate with lots of hay bales, pumpkins (if in season) and inflatable cactus. If possible, an old fashioned camp fire or fire pit can set a great western scene and to make s'mores later.

On the inside: - Start with a saloon door curtain and create the look of a wild west saloon!
Balloons randomly tied around a room always makes an inexpensive and festive decoration and set the stage for your western party or square dance.

Western Table Decorations:

1. Use gingham or bandana theme tablecovers and napkins.
2. Place a Mug at each place setting and serve root beer (or other beverages.
3. For a special touch - use different colors of cloth paisley bandanas as the napkins, tie up with raffia and pin a toy sherrif's badge to each one. This makes a great party favor as well!
4. Place a serving bowl inside an upside-down cowboy hat to serve chips, etc.
5. Tie a bandana around a basket and use as a serving bowl.

Western Party Activities

1. Square Dance - If the space is availabe and you have someone to call...have a square dance or two-step.
2. Sing-a-Long - Set the scene with an old fashion camp fire and have a sing-a-long! Some great Western tunes include:
Home on the Range
My Darling Clementine
Get Along Little Doggies
She'll Be Comin' Round the Mountain
Happy Trails
Turkey in the Straw

Western Game Ideas

1. Panning for Gold
This is a great game for a child's western party! Hide gold nuggets (gold covered candy) in your child's sand box. Purchase some beach toy sand sifters from your local toy store and have kids "pan for gold".

2. Classic Western Games
• Horse Shoes
• Sack Races

Western Party Food

For kids - Hot dogs, baked beans, corn on the cob, and chips. Simple and easy!

For adults - Big bowls of chili, cornbread, and salad. Or, bring out the grill and have barbecue ribs, chicken or steaks for hungry cowboys! Don't forget the trail mix and beef jerky! Serve up the chow on western or bandana theme paper products for an easy clean up!
