Country Invitations & Western Party Invitations

Tuesday, March 24th, 2009

Grab ‘yer partner for a hoedown!

One of the trends we’ve noticed over the past year has been the growing surge of cowboy, country and western parties being held…and not just from the folks in the south either! These parties range from kids birthday parties to adult birthday parties, rehearsal dinners, corporate events, wedding invites and more!

A western themed party typically involves everyone dressing down in jeans, bandanas, cowboy hats, checkered or flannel shirts and cowboy boots. Decorate your event by placing cacti, sand and stones in the center of each table to create that western ambiance. Make your own signs out of beat-up wood that say “Saloon”, “Cowboys” or “Cowgirls”. You can even make wanted signs with your friends names as place cards.

For food basics, stick to traditional barbecue, or maybe even have a pig-pickin’ for your guests. You can serve ribs, corn, burgers, hot dogs and beans…any kind of southern food you can think of. Finish it off with some old-fashioned homemade pies. For activities you can host a square dance-a-thon and let the best dancer win. You can even hire a teacher to show your guests how to do a square dance ahead of time. Outside feel free to set up horseshoes or horseback riding.

Well, now that you’ve learned how to plan the perfect Western themed party, remember to choose a perfect invitation to coincide with your event…after all, your invitation will be the first indication of the event to come! Make it a good one.
