A Western Party is a great adult party ideas theme because the decorating possibilities are endless. You can have a lot of fun with this!
A western party is an easy theme to do. It is easy for your guests to dress up (just add a cowboy hat) and it is easy to come by some western or cowboy decorations.
Better yet, this sort of party seems to make it's own fun.
But be sure to check out the page on adult party games if you feel that you need more activities.
This is a really easy party as far as invitations go!
You can make invitations in the shape of something western related. Some ideas might be a
- Cactus shape
- Cowboy hat
- Pistol Gun
- Longhorn steer head
There are also great Western party invitations
available to purchase. These are some of my favorites:
Not too long ago I was part of a team that put together a Western party in a barn. We made the barn look terrific by hanging little white lights from side to side:
Other things to use in your decorations:
Hay BalesWagon WheelsSaddlesWanted postersLanternsDeer Antlers
Red checked tablecloths
It is a great idea to use a Western Scene Setters Backdrop
or something Western for a great photo op place. We created a background at our party with hay bales, boots, and a big Texas flag:
Western Party Photo Op Area
If you'd rather buy something for your photo area, this giant boot
is a terrific option!!:
"Must Have" Party Music
Make sure you include some great Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, and other old favorites along with some of the newer standards.
Flavor of the Old West
Well of course you could serve up some authentic cowboy viddles, but here are some other ideas:
We served food outdoors at tables, and made a great "entry" to the area using a couple of old doors, some burlap for draping and odds and ends:
Table runners were just a long roll of burlap! After adding some natural centerpieces and some flameless candles, it is magic!
Centerpieces were a lot of natural grasses and blooming branches picked on the ranch, along with some yellow roses and daisies.
Western Party Fun
Turn your party into an old west saloon by playing some casino gamesPlay Horseshoes Talk Like a Cowboy (say “howdy pardner”, call the food “chuck”, and the party a “shindig”) Hit a western themed pinata If this is a golden birthday, include a gold hunt, panning for gold, or something gold related!
