Corral for the Stick Pony Races
Pony Rides for all
Recently, I helped my best friend Amber throw a COWGIRL party for her daughter's 3rd birthday! All the kids received bandannas, hats, and sheriffs badges upon their arrival. We set up a "shooting gallery"and had stick ponies for all the kids to gallop around. Amber rented the cutest pony for rides around their property. We had a cowboy cookout with hamburgers, hot dogs, beans, coleslaw, and all the fixing's' served on tin plates. The kids had sarsaparilla and we had Outlaw Punch for the grown ups, served in mason jars. We built a campfire and made yummy smores. There was horseshoes for the adults to play too. For decorations, we put up wanted posters of all the guests with names like the Lone Ranger, Cisco Kid, and Bonnie & Clyde. We had hay bales for guests to sit on, cow print tablecloths, bandanna napkins, and denim stitched plates. The table centerpieces were Christmas Cactus in galvanized buckets tied with bandanna ribbons and sheriff stars. The kids took home their cowboy gear, stick ponies, and cowboy cookies for their favors.
