I have been doing so many parties lately!! They are a lot of fun to put together and I love the challenge of different themes and ideas. The latest one was a Jessie and Woody from Toy Story theme but from the cowboy/cowgirl perspective. It came out super cute and so let’s check it out!
This was such a fun theme and perfect for a brother/sister party!! The sister is one of Avery’s good friends and turned three while her little brother celebrated his 1st birthday!
The cupcakes were red, blue and Woody’s shirt yellow. I made the paper myself by using my Tombow markers on white cardstock with a ruler. Then a scalloped circle with the numbers in the middle.
Per child request at almost every party, I made marshmallow pops, this class has come to expect them at all birthday parties and often pass up cupcakes in order to have them. I totally miss placed my lollipop sticks and at the last minute used paper straws that I found and I like them even better!
This party gave me the chance to experiment with park parties, I always prefer a house party because it is just easier all around in my opinion but I totally understand the lure of a park party. For this one I made these posts that were used behind the tables for banners. I will share a tutorial for those later this week! This banner is a simple cupcake liner banner which is a new fave.
There were a couple of tables to sit and eat and these were mostly decorated by my friend who is the mom of the birthday kids. She is pretty crafty herself and they came out super cute!
I love a tv tray, but not so much in my house, more so for parties! They are the perfect size for photo props, toys or in this case, the plates, bowls and plastic ware!
For food there was a nacho and chili bar, perfect for a cowboy party! There were cornbread, chips and all the fixin’s!
I set up a couple more posts behind this table and put op a fabric banner, I thought of and made this on the spot and I love how it came out! There is just some kraft type paper on the tables to give it that rustic feel.
There was also a station for panning for gold! My friend came up with this one too, she spray painted some rocks gold and put them in her daughter’s sand table. Then just punch some holes in a pie plate and you are done! Cute bags and display don’t hurt either!
Because it was a really warm day, we kept everything under the table for most of the part so that it wouldn’t melt. Then, right before singing we set up the desserts and cupcakes, I love how they all came out!
The cupcake liner border was perfect for the dessert table too!

All in all it was a great party! I hope you found some fun ideas!!
