Sunday we celebrated our sweet little cowgirl turning four with a wild west celebration! It was a simple but sweet party and she had a ball playing with all of her friends. And she seriously has the sweetest friends. Two of which drove up from Texas to spend the day with her. <3 Every year instead of buying gifts, Zack and I put together a fun party and she has loved it. We hosted at a local ranch event venue, the party was literally in an old horse barn. It was really cute! When we got home she kept talking about how much fun she had with everyone. I’d chalk that up as a successful day.Most people know how much Paisley loves, lives, eats and breathes being a cowgirl. The party was a total reflection of her. This year I only had to buy the food, cake, and a couple of utensils. Most of everything I borrowed from my house or used a couple of displays from Farm Girl. My nana let me use my great great grandmother’s lace table cloths and my mom used a few of her western bowls for some of the food. It was really simple and fun to throw it all together. My vision for the party was a western and rustic theme with pops of color and a southwest vibe.I loved “The Waterin’ Hole.” I used this lemonade stand and wash tubs for the drink station. Both are Farm Girl displays (we also sell them) and looked really rustic. The cotton, milk can, and crock are also sold in Farm Girl but I brought them from home.
We bought glass bottled cokes, orange crush, root beer, and her favorite, grape crush for the wash tubs. We also had water and tea served.Her cake table was so much fun. I had Chelsea from Scribbles Bakery do her cupcakes, cookies, and birthday cake again this year. She always amazes me with her talent. They turned out perfect and was exactly what I wanted.Every year I have the guests at her party write her a message in a book that goes along with her theme. When She turns 18 I plan to have all of the books wrapped up to give to her. The cookies were a hit! I love the cute designs and the hats + horseshoes were my favorite! The table decorations were some of my favorite touches. I used my collection of boots on all of the tables and around the venue with florals inside. I stuck a small mason jar at the bottom of the boot to give it some weight and water for the flowers. I also potted succulents and cactus in cheap pots to go along with my southwest cowgirl theme. I got the pots for 80 cents at Home Depot! Her cake was so fun! I L O V E D the fringe touches.The cake stand is also mine but I got it at Farm Girl as well as the turquoise one previously pictured.Our cousin made mason jar banana pudding and my mom made “cow patties” also know as no bake cookies. :)We had lil’ doggies (hot dogs) with the fixins’ and “horse chips” for our meal. I used pie tins for our plates to add western flair.My dad and papa. They grilled the doggies for us. :)Gift table.
I ordered the rope sign from a local shop a block from mine called The Rustic Ridge. She’s a business friend and makes some of the neatest stuff. I frequent her cute little store a lot. :) The banner behind it is from The Olive Grove Shop. I’ve bought several items from Sarah and she always does an amazing job.For the party favors, I had a friend of mine hand make stick horses. The kids absolutely loved them and the fact that they got to take one home. They used them for stick horse races, western games, and to play cowboys and cowgirls.Zack’s mom and mama made these awesome cutouts out of CARDBOARD for the kids to have a fun photo booth with. I am constantly amazed at what they can make. You might remember last years Cinderella carriage. All of the artwork was free handed and painted. So stinking cute! They made the cactus as well that’s now displayed as decor in Farm Girl.We had horseshoes, rope the dummy, and brought the barrels for the kids to have races. I was going to have a table for the kids to make their own brand but you know how parties go, not always how you plan. :)Paisley and her Papaw.Scout got her some new Anderson Bean square toes just for the party. She had a great party and we enjoyed celebrating our sweet girl!
