Creative Ideas for a Western Party

June 16, 2010

Yeeehah!!!! We have just worked on a children’s western party but thought to myself …. How cool! How about an adult version for this party?


For this party you could hire a couple of Cowboy/cowgirls who would mingle with the crowd and show them a couple of cool line dances. The DJ will also be very important for this party because he will know how to mix and match western style songs and smoothly move into other type of music. Remember, unless your friends are totally into these theme, it is a good idea to mix with other music too, have a siren or a sound that announces a Western segment!


Check out this beautiful table setting, everyone at the party gets a hat and a colorful bandana that can be placed at their chair or given at the entrance by a welcoming host . Hay bales give a nice touch as well as a section for a picture opportunity. You can be very creative and put a couple o wanted signs or even have fake horses or carriages. Do not forget the buffet table and the bar area. Fun props for this theme are cactus, lanterns, zarapes, horse saddles, horse shoes, old western boots. The peanuts on the pail  idea is for adults only, I would rather keep them at the bar and not as center pieces on the tables, people might have allergies, have special caution if children will be attending , you might want to make it a peanut free party altogether and avoid mishaps!


Now if you really want to surprise your guests and have loads of fun, rent a mechanical bull. The idea is to have fun and not to throw everyone away. The last time we had a Western children party with one of this guys, the line was endless, surpassed the pony rides!  Both children and adults love the mechanical Bull! Quick note – Remember Mechanical Bulls and other extreme rides need to be totally insured.

Check this expert, Jamie Manning,  Australian Cowboy go at it while breaking  the Guinness World Record.

Other entertainment can be available for this party, if you want to rent a mechanical bull,  go with this direction, give us a call and get ready for some YEEEEHAHHHHH fun!

I want to share with you these beautiful Centerpieces I will be replicating for a sweet sixteen party.

This girl loves her bling- bling and she will be getting that at her very special celebration.

The centerpieces I am posting where done at a wedding and where photographed by my dear friend Pako Castillo. I’ve had the oportunity to see Pako’s work first hand in many occasions and he is truly a one of a kind photographer!

Francisco Castillo, an amazing photographer best known as Pako captures the best and every moment at graduations, Sweet Sixteens Quinceañeras and his specialty, weddings. He creates the most amazing pics, a true artist, he elaborates books that tell a story…. To check more about Pako’s work, go to

Tips for a Western Style Party

May 24, 2010


For decoration, choose to have a picture opportunity spot with lots of props like cactus, hay bales, wanted poster signs were your guests can pop their head, or try even a setting were your guests can take home a picture posing at an old western bar with western outfits and hair pieces!

Check out this nice table decoration done with straw skirts and bandanas. On each chair, cowboy hats that guests take home and use during the party; some will probably bring their own but you should always have additional ones.

The bar  sure will be a focal point. Have the bar tender dressed as a cowboy or sheriff from the old west. A cool idea is to put saddles on the stools at the bar or we can custom create cow stools for your party!


If you want to go all Western, you can choose a local band but make sure all your guests are into this theme too. If not, a better option would probably be to have a cool DJ who can mix different music flavors, when it is the time to go Western a siren sound announces it is time for YEEEHAHHHH all the way line dances. Another good idea is to have real cowboy guests at the party, specially cowboy/cowgirl dancers-who can show your guests some cool moves.

For other entertainment, nothing better than a mechanical bull ride, this are safe to use and soooo much fun! They come fully insured! This can be ridden by adults and children too. Check out Jamie Manning, Australian Cowboy set a new World Guinness Record.
