. . .
so here's the skinny on everything that went into our little shindig (with sources & all) . . .
the table was set with breakfast goodies that I would imagine to be typical suburban cowboy fare: trail mix, sausage biscuits, cheesy grits . . . and donut holes?
kiddos sipped on apple juice tied up in screen printed muslin gold rush bags, while mom & pop enjoyed spiked cactus punch (aka mimosa with a cowboy moniker).
for food presentation, a sweet & savory trail mix was tucked into mini lunch bags and tied with twine.
4oz coffee cups & wooden forks (affixed with fabric tape) were used to dish out cheesy grits, and the donut holes were served atop craft sticks . . . because what could be more fun than a donut on a stick?
the cupcakes were decorated with steer head picks cut from black card stock, and glittery fool's gold sanding sugar, all in a sweet little bandana baking cup.
upon arrival, everyone suited up with hats, bandannas, badges, and mustaches cut in the same way as the cake toppers.
games & activities consisted of the old standby pin-the-mustache-on-the-cowboy (constructed by yours truly, using various colors of card stock); a craft table full of markers, crayons & foam cowboy stickers; and a cowboy boot piñata to round out the theme.
oh, and of course we had a photobooth set up, just for fun.
at the end of the party, all the cowboys rode off into the sunset on their very own homemade steed, with a screen printed loot bag full of plenty of goodies in tow.
phew! I think that pretty much covers it.
more photos coming soon: the festivities, and the making of those horses.
