Vintage Cowboy Cutie 3rd Birthday

Angela J By Angela J  in Birthday


Party Recap

My son Isaiah loves to pretend to be a cowboy and shout ‘Yee Haw!’ His chubby little face has always reminded me of the cute vintage cowboy images.
I went searching for vintage graphics that I could use as part of the party décor, but many of them portrayed violence.

I designed the ‘brown eyed cowboy’ after my son. He is seen in the various party decorations doing innocent, playful things such as twirling his lasso, holding onto his belt buckle, tipping his hat, and riding his toy horse.

I chose a bright and cheerful color palette of red, bright blue and yellow and added denim and bandana prints as accents. All of the party decorations were designed and created by me, and most are available in my etsy shop

There were actually two parties for Isaiah. We had his playgroup friends, and their moms, over in the morning for some games such as the ‘Tootsie Roll Roundup’ and ‘Horseshoe Toss’ as well as treats. We passed out a bandana and cowboy hat to each child to wear (and take home as a favor). In the evening Isaiah’s grandparents arrived for supper, cake, ice cream and presents!

He had a wonderful time, as is seen by his smiling face in the pictures!

    How exactly did you make this cute bunting? I am looking to make one that can hang on a door for a soccer trip to Texas

    Kristi, for the mini bandanna bunting I found a red paisley ribbon at the local craft store and cut it into triangles, and then sewed them all together! super simple! If anyone is searching for cowboy themed items, I have re-worked the party package and now offer all graphics/products in printable format!
