Simple and easy cowgirl birthday party ideas that are easy to create at home. A cowgirl party is the perfect idea for little girls that love the idea of a Western theme party.
Whether it’s pretty and pink, vintage, shabby chic or Toy Story inspired, a cowgirl party is a fun party theme that all kids can enjoy.
Do you have a little cowgirl at home? A cowgirl birthday party is perfect for those little ones that love horses or the Wild West.
Invite all the girls friends to dress up in their jeans, boots and Western style shirts to set the mood for the party. It will help them to really interact with the fun theme.
How To Decorate For A Cowgirl Party
Whilst party decorations can be tailored and adapted to a specific spin of a party theme, there are some decorations that will still work perfectly regardless of how you interpret the theme.
Some great suggestions for a cowgirl birthday party include the following:
- Hang up some Wild West or “Wanted” posters.
- If you are able to grab some hay bales, this will instantly help set the scene. They are perfect for use for seating and game playing.
- Set up a party backdrop behind the food table. This helps to highlight the focus area of the party and is a great way to integrate the colors chosen for the party. If stuck for what colors to choose, red (or pink), white and brown or black would work perfectly for a girls party.
- Serve food on tin plates and silver metal pails.
- Have cowboy hats and bandana’s scattered around which can double up as party decor, but also be given to the kids for extra dress up.

Cowgirl Party Games
Once you have decided what your party will actually look like, it is important to remember the games.
Kids of all ages love games and a party that is run with games is so much more fun for everyone than those parties where the kids are just left to mingle.
Some great ideas for cowgirl party games include:
- A sack race. This race will case a lot of laughs and kids young and old enjoy playing it.
- Instead of playing musical statues, have a bit of “Cotton Eyed Joe” playing and get the kids to show you their best cowgirl moves.
- If the kids love to sign, why not have a karaoke available.
- Let the kids have a team race with some stick ponies. If you buy one for each child then they can also double up as a party favor.
- Pin the tail on the donkey is an absolutely perfect game for young kids.
- A photo booth is always a lot of fun and it’s easy to obtain some Wild West props for extra fun.
These games will be great to get your party started. However there are a lot more Wild West party games if you need some more inspiration.
A cowgirl birthday party is certainly one that will be a lot of fun and enjoyed by girls and boys. Kids can really get into character of being in the Wild West and the party can be made as grungy or as pretty as you like.
Use these party ideas to create a cowgirl party that is perfect for you.
