Hoe-Down Birthday Bash

Head on over for an Old Fashion Hoe-Down

My daughter loves horses, so we decided on a hoe-down theme for her 6th birthday.  This was so fun to put together.  Not only can you find western themed party supplies everywhere, but everyday accessories such as burlap, denim, sunflowers, daisies, cowboy boots, cowoy hats and even toy horses can also be found.

You just have to google parties and you will find these glass jars everywhere filled with candy.  I added my own twist by using beef jerky sticks, and trail mix.
The cake.
The buffet.  We served BBQ sandwhiches, chips, potato salad, a veggies tray, and served Orange Crush & Root Beer for drinks. 
For party favors, I found a horse puzzle for $1 at the Dollar Tree, then added some m&s and other cute items and tied them in a bundle with bandanas and twine. Then I added a cute tag that I created in photoshop that says "Thanks Partner for makin' it to my party.  Sure hope you had a Rootin Tootin good time!
For activities we hired a pony service that brought out two ponies for the kids to ride.  For games we did a three legged race that was huge hit.  A grape spitten contest.  Pin the tail on the Horse.  And of course we had a horse pinata.  We did set out bales of Hay in the back yard as well for additional outdoor seating.  It was also the perfect prop for a group picture.
This was such a fun party that both kids and adults thoroughly enjoyed it.
