Pony Party Menu
Serve up the party food, snacks and fun with your imagination.
Food helps set the scene and enhance your party theme. So serve up the fun for your
hungry little ranch hands. Horse around with our menu ideas, including horsey
birthday cakes, sweet and savory saddle snacks, and knee-slapping cowboy party
food served up kid style. We have ideas for a more elegant equestrian affair and fare
for the adults too. And be sure to see our party snack mix ideas that everyone can
One way to add to your horsey theme is to wear an apron or use oven mitts with a
horsey theme. Party goers will notice that fun is on your menu. Search Amazon for the
whimsical set right, "Annie Hill Collection Horse Oven Mitt Potholder set." You can also
add fun to the menu with a cowboy dinner bell (chuck wagon triangle) or a steak
branding iron from Amazon.
Here are some menu ideas for your chuck wagon:
- BBQ: Having a barbecue is an obvious choice for any Western style party. For
an extra measure of horsey fun, the kids will love their hamburgers marked with
a "Cowboy Hat Steak branding iron" and served with little piles of "hay"
- Cookie cutter sandwiches: Your party doesn't have to be cookie cutter. You can
add a creativity to your party with cookie cutters for your child's favorite
sandwiches. You'll find a variety horse shapes and horse-shoes, cowboy hats
and boots, cacti, and sheriff's badges stars on eBay or Amazon. Note that
horseshoe-shaped cookie cutters aren't very practical as your cookies will break
easily if your dough isn't thick enough. You can always ice the cookies for the
horse shoe design or buy gourmet cookies on Amazon.
- Horseshoe-shaped biscuits: (serve with fried chicken and corn on the cob). Use
your favorite biscuit recipe to make the dough, then cut into horse shoe or other
horse theme shapes using a cookie cutter. Or bake biscuits on a stick on an
open flame, cowboy style.
- Wagon Wheel pasta salad: Try your favorite pasta dish with wagon wheel
shaped pasta. Wagon Wheel pasta may be hard to find, but you can buy it in
bulk (12-pack) on Amazon.
- Have a weenie roast: Turn lunch into an activity by having party-goers prepare
their own hot dogs on a stick, cowboy style. Hot dogs and baked beans are the
staple of any true cowboy, but make sure to use cowboy vernacular and call
them "little doggies." You can also bake biscuits by wrapping the dough around
the stick and cooking them in the fire.
- S'mores without the fire: For a quick treat minus the outdoor heat, place a
graham cracker square on a plate with a marshmallow and a slice of chocolate
then microwave it for 15-20 seconds. Top with a graham square to make the
traditional S'mores sandwich without the hassle of a real campfire. For
decorations, you can make an artificial campfire, like the one used for boy scout
- Gorp (Good Old Raisins and Peanuts): Before the stampede at the chuck
wagon, serve up the party snack mix. We have the recipe for gorp and other
saddle snacks for your hungry posse.
- Appetizers for hungry cowpokes: Sure you can serve up some Beef Jerkey or
Trail party mix, but appetizers
- A sweet idea to serve ice cream: You'll find plastic trophies make a fun base to
serve an ice-cream cone.
- Drinks to wash down the trail dust: Roy Rogers, Sarsaparilla or cream soda,
Root beer, Cactus Cooler, or make your own Cactus Cooler (mix a carbonated
lime drink with lime Sherbert).
