The great thing about a Western party theme: It can get gussied up in its Sunday go-to-meetin’ clothes for a formal or it can dress down for a barbecue hoedown. There’s also no age limit on this classically American party, though you’ll have to consider carefully whether a draft beer or sarsaparilla is the better beverage pick. And there are no limits to venue either. Using sweeping backdrops and life-size Western props to create a frontier town in a ballroom or toss a few hay bales in a wagon in your back yard and light the fire pit. No matter the size of your party or the age of your guests, you’ll find all the Western party supplies you need at Shindigz. You’ll find such great prices, too, so you won’t have to worry about your face being the next to show up on a wanted poster.
The best decor for any Western theme party – cowboys, outlaws, an old-time saloon – is the simplest. Create a great food table by draping muslin over wire hoops to form a wagon cover. Decorate place settings with colorful bandanas tied with burlap ribbons. Hang colorful cowboy hats to the backs of chairs for added pop. A pail full of peanuts is a great centerpiece, and so are wild flowers tucked into a bottle. For favor, draw dollar signs on brown lunch sacks and secure the top with a ribbon. Pack the “money sack” full of personalized favors. A canning jar or boot-shaped mug is a nice touch that guests definitely will use once they get home. Be sure to buy extras to stock your kitchen or bar for your next back yard barbecue.
