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.

Party Invitations

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

  • Boot
  • Cactus shape
  • Cowboy hat
  • Horseshoe
  • Pistol Gun
  • Longhorn steer head
There are also great Western party invitations available to purchase. These are some of my favorites:

Western Decorations

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 Bales
  • Wagon Wheels
  • Saddles
  • Wanted posters
  • Lanterns
  • Deer 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:

    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:

    Western Party Dining Tables

    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 games
  • Play 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!
  • Have a sing-a-long of Western cowboy songs or karaoke with current country hits
  • Play one of the many great and easy games on our adult party games ideas list

  • Old Fashioned Western Cowboy Songs

    Have you ever been to a sing-a-long? It really is fun!

    Some standard songs for singing around the campfire, just like in the old west...

    • Back in the Saddle Again
    • (Oh my darling,) Clementine
    • Bury Me Not on the Lone Prairie
    • Down in the Valley
    • Get Along Little Doggies
    • Home on the Range
    • Jesse James
    • On Top of Old Smokey (not really a cowboy song...but seems to fit the list!)
    • Old Chisholm Trail
    • Red River Valley
    • Sweet Betsy from Pike

    Fun Cake Designs

    Whether for a birthday or not, all parties deserve a great cake. Here are some favorites:

  • If this cake is for a 30th birthday (over the hill) party, make a rounded cake ("boot hill", a graveyard), with a "stone" for our newly over the hill honoree.
  • Horse Themed Cakes
  • A western boot shaped cake

  • Do you have a great easy party idea or game?
