A western party would simply not be complete without fun, country western decorations to set the mood and theme for your party guests. You can begin setting the theme for your party with the invitations you choose to send to your invitees. Whether your country western party decorations are homemade or store-bought, they will add to the fun and excitement of your party. Let your guests get in the western mood the moment they arrive at your home. Roll out the welcome mat and decorate your exterior entrance of your home with straw bales and season permitting, fun, natural accessories like Indian corn and pumpkins. Choose your favorite western movie actor and place a life-size, stand-up poster of John Wayne or Clint Eastwood, to greet your guests as they enter your home.
Party lights can be a key component of your country western themed decorations and come in a variety of shapes and colors. Chili Peppers, Cacti, Cowboy Boots or Cowboy Hats are popular shapes for western theme party string lights. String these lights around your entrance door or inside your home using easily removable hooks such as 3M’s command hooks that won’t harm your walls or wallpaper. Other country western party decorations can include your tableware. A red and white checked tablecloth with denim-look napkins, set the country tone for your kitchen table. Accessorize with cactus stemmed cocktail glassware make an impressive statement to your guests. Country western themed party decorations aren’t just seen, but can also be heard! Music is a major fun-factor to your western get-together. Popular songs from country western artists such as Toby Keith, Garth Brooks or classic Willie Nelson can be a fun conversation starter for your party guests to play name that tune!
Use country western party decorations to keep guests in the western mood for your party games. A cactus piñata for your younger guests, an outdoor game of horseshoes or a homemade branding iron with a hung a poster of a steer, for a blind folded game of “brand the steer” – a western party twist on the classic pin the tail on the donkey. Your guest’s attire can be part of your country western party decorations. Suggest to your guests when you send your party invitations, that they wear denim and their best cowboy boots. Then when your guest arrive, hand out bandanas, inexpensive cowboy hats and deputy badges to wear during your party. The combination of themes for your western theme party are endlessly fun and readily available! Feel free to mix and match themes like cowboy, BBQ, hoedown or denim and diamonds when choosing your country western party decorations!
Remember, you have won half the battle of making your event a success for your family and friends if they feel like they have stepped back in time into the old west the minute they step into your house.
