Posse Formin’ Party {Birthday party for Jackson and Jaycie}

What cowboy/cowgirl birthday party is complete without the perfect little stick horse?

In planning this party we decided to combine the 2 birthdays since they are only 10 days apart. It only makes sense right?  (and I could afford to go bigger if we did…hehe)  Well lil’ Jaycie loves her nay nays (ie. Ponies) and Jackson loves his boots and snap shirts so the party…well it pretty much planned itself.  Cowboy/cowgirl theme it is!

Kids Wanted Invite

 

Now how are we going to pull off a party for about 60 people?  Why so many? Large families and lots of friends. So first the location: a beautiful red barn surrounded by cattle and haystacks with the gorgeous snow capped Owhyee mountains in the background. Check.

Next would be the party favors.  There are 20 little dudes and dudettes invited so how about we hand make 20 of the most adorable stick horses.  Yep, check.

Games you say?  We had that covered too: a must have barrel race, add in corn hole, horseshoes, maybe a little pin the tail on the pony, add in some ropin’ and you have created a fun filled afternoon. Check.

Food? Well that was a given. Middle of February it has to be chili, right?  Get the grandparents to make their famous chili then add some muffins, hotdogs on the grill and macaroni and cheese and it’s a feast fit for the king and queen of country. Check.
