YEEHAH! It's a boy! A lil Cowboy Baby Shower gives the new baby a big yodel hey welcome! Every boy loves a good rodeo. Also known as a western themed baby shower or a rodeo baby shower, there are many wonderful elements to make a cowboy themed shower come to life!
Fantastic decoration is a must have in a successful theme based baby shower! The wall hangings, balloons, centerpiece and the like, will work together with the other components of the shower, so as to display your theme to the fullest!
You have lots of options when it comes to centerpiece. Shower the theme party table with greeneries. Scatter cactus confetti for a fun addition to your cowboy table decorations! To add some more final touches, add some wildflowers, sunflowers or daisies. If you have cactus plants that will fit your table, then bring them out! And you just happen to have some horse figurines, then those will also be great! Or you could also have a cake shaped like a horse or a cowboy hat.
If you want a fun centerpiece, consider taking a cowboy boot or hat, and then arranging a variety of beautiful fresh flowers in it to make a beautiful arrangement.
Movie posters and pictures of anything western should decorate your walls. If you have posters of your favorite country singers, pictures of horses, the desert, buffalos, and cowboys, then you will have no problem on what your wall hangings should be.
The baby display could show a rocking horse, or if you don't find that cute, then a baby riding a rocking horse and wearing a big cowboy hat might be what you are looking for.
Invite friends and family to saddle up, mosey on down, and have some fun at the cowboy party decorated with western personalized party supplies. Set your western party scene with burlap, saloon accents, cutout animals, and other cowboy accessories.
Guests always look forward to dessert. Don't disappoint with this adorable cowboy themed cake and beautiful hand crafted cupcakes that give a great touch to a cowboy baby shower!
Choose a dominant color for your shower room. Anything leather and western-looking items are great. You could also play country music to add to your cowboy atmosphere. Add some cow print balloons to add the country touch to the party. Motives of red western bandanna patterns are perfect for a cowboy themed party. The bright colours will surely bring in the mood for the cowboys to party!
Cutouts of farm animals can be used as backdrops as well. Start with cut outs shaped like cowboy hats, rocking horse, and boots for your room hangings. If you still have vacant spaces, then cactus-shaped cardboards are great additions.
Don’t forget to offer your cowboy party guests cowboy party hats, western bandannas and sheriff's badges. If you wanna go all out, have a customized backdrop of a cowboy town or have a cowboy party western boot balloon arch. Set out western party apparel for cowboy party guests to put on when having their pictures taken in front of the backdrop. And this my favorite, have some photo props & 'wanted' posters around the room. For example bubble props of cowboy popular shout outs and posters such as "Wanted...This Baby to be Born!" or "Wanted...Mary to be a Mom!" or something like that.
Western menu could be as snappy as fried chicken and pizza, fit for a western rodeo. You could also opt for a line of BBQ buffet. This may nclude hot dogs, baked sweet potatoes, cucumber salad and corn on the cob. Consider serving up lemonade for the beverage and maybe some good old fashioned root beer or sarsaparillas. Please your western party buckaroos by placing small bowls filled with salsa and chips inside of upside down colored cowboy hats.
Honor each cowboy party partner with a classic red or blue western bandanna and a unique glass boot mug. Reward children at your cowboy party with packages of personalized favours of chocolate bars, milk bottles & gold digger coins. Wordings like "Lil Cowboys' Milk" will surely carve a smile on each and every cowboy party guest of yours.
If at all possible, pick up a few bales of hay to display sporadically around the party area or along the entryway. If you're having the shower outdoor, use bales of hay for the seats. These will set a fantastic scene of the wild west for your party area. Wish we could get those hay easily here in Malaysia!
