guarantee you'll have a boot stomping good time when you throw a cowgirl party.
Moo-ve over cowboys! This is cowgirl party for the little rodeo queens. See also our
pink cowgirl party ideas.
So kick up your heals and learn how to have a cowgirl theme, including party
invitations, birthday cake, food, games, and favor ideas.
- Dress like a cowgirl. Your little rodeo queen deserves a special cowgirl hat, a
Western shirt, and perhaps a new pair of boots. Here's how to dress like a
cowgirl for her party:
- Start her look with a straw cowboy hat.
- Find a Western shirt. Wrangler makes a variety of Western shirts for girls
with horse motifs. To give her a sassy cowgirl look, tie the bottom into a
knot to expose her midriff. Otherwise, a white t-shirt will do for the
birthday girl, accented by a fringed vest and a bandanna.
- Pick a cowgirl skirt. Skip the pants unless you plan on having a pony ride.
You can choose a skirt with a fringe, but just jean skirt will do.
- Add a pair of cowboy boots and you're done.
- Line up for a line dance. Teach those little cowgirls how to dance like one with a
few boot kickin' moves. They'll be boot scooting in no time, and you can add
little Southern style to your neck of the woods with a little workout for the
kiddies. The Dance Off the Inches: Country Line Dance DVD, left, will guarantee
you have a blast. Learn a few basic moves, blast off calories, and teach those
little cowgirls how to dance at the party.

birthday cake. Alternatively, serve sweets in plastic upturned cowboy hats for a
Western theme or plastic derby hats for an equestrian theme. check out the
adorable pink cowgirl hat cake.
- For the tables, turn a pair of cowboy boots into a couple vases using cut water
bottles inside the boots filled with just enough water for the flowers. This
pretty pink cowgirl boot is a mug that you can use as a vase. It's available on
Amazon and makes a great pencil holder or favor.
- Read a story just before opening presents to get everyone's attention. A
theme appropriate story you can find on Amazon is "I Want to be a Cowgirl" by
Jeanne Willis. Story time is a great way to calm the posse after sugaring up
with cake. The "Cowgirl Kate" series by Betsy Lewin is another good choice.

to the appropriate bathrooms. Check out this fun selection of horse theme
signs to add a festive touch to your party.
