Western Party Planning
No matter what age you are, a Cowboy and Indian Party always goes down well and can be held in most venues and homes.
So, the first think to think about is what month you are holding your event, how many guests you would like to host, what entertainment are you looking for and taking all the elements of your wish list, how big a venue do you need.
During the warm Summer months, with late sun setting, extending your tables, bar and eating area outside with bales of hay, really works, so think about holding your event in a village hall, or venue with outdoor space where you can spready out.
During the long cold Winter months, when the weather is less comfortable, remember you'll need plenty of indoor space to accommodate your Western hoe down band, bucking bronco and line dancing.
And, of course, if you have a home with a large garden or field with vehicular access, that works too.
Your venue is sorted and now you can think about your 'shopping list' of entertainment which can include Western gunmen with stunt co-ordinated bar room brawls, rodeo bull competitions, quick draw simulators, band/disco, maybe fun fair stalls, fun gambling tables, a photo booth set in a stagecoach and of course a mobile bar.
Depending on the style and ceiling height of your venue, the sky is the limit so far as Western theme party props are concerned. From saloon swing doors, to Boot Hill, to chuck wagons and tepees.
Working carefully with your budget you can decide on a good balance between your entertainment and themed room dressing - here are some of our ideas for a Wild West Party.
Don't forget the food! Western parties can include sit down meals, buffet stations and maybe a TexMex mix. Wooden trestle tables can be decorated with red and white chequered tablecloths and wooden chairs are fine just the way they are. Poseur tables can be made from barrels and an authentic look given to the party with bottles of beer sunk into ice filled tubs.
Give your guests the dress code and have a fun filled, action packed, Cowboy Wild West adventure.
