Michelle's Party Plan-It: Liam's Round Up - Part 1

Liam's Round Up - Part 1



My youngest son loves dressing up and lately he has been obsessed with cowboys. I had bought him a cowboy costume after Halloween and since then he has been asking for a Cowboy party for his 4th birthday.  I have to say, this has been my favorite theme to date.  I had so much fun planning and creating every little detail for his party over the past 2 months. I admit I may have gone a bit overboard, but after seeing the ear to ear smile on my son's face on party day, it was so worth the late nights and early mornings before and after work. 

Old Western Town:
My vision for this party was to create a "Wild West" experience for our guests to enjoy from the minute they arrived.  My first project was the Old Western Town.  I created facades with rolls of printed paper and sheets of cardboard and made signs using my Cricut.  I made the Bank, Sheriff's Office, Jail, General Store, pony corral and my personal favorite, a Trading Post.  It sometimes rains here in February, so I needed to make sure everything I created would work indoors.  So we decided to remove the furniture in our dining and living room and bring in hay for our guests to sit and enjoy a felt campfire. 




















Handmade Hobby Horses for our Horse Race (shared in Part 2 of Liam's Round Up). These were so fun to put together!



Using a Hobby Horse pattern I found at Hopeful Homemaker, these Hobby Horse Bubble Wands were perfect for the kiddos! (See tutorial HERE.)




Every cowboy needs a campfire!


The Dessert Table:
I lined a wall with "wood" patterned paper and created a backdrop for the dessert table. I made a bandanna garland out of bandannas I found at the Dollar Tree and strung them on rope and covered the table in burlap and jute runners.  My dear friend Jamie made rice cereal "Hay Bales", "Hay Stacks", super yummy cow print cake pops and S'mores on sticks.  Autumn Lynn's Chocolate Sins made the adorable horse shaped cake pops, candy apples topped with a bandanna and chocolate cowboy hat along with white chocolate dipped cow print Oreos.  Jen from Sweeten Your Day Cakes made the wonderfully detailed fondant cupcake toppers.  I just love the little horse and the cactus!  I filled metal buckets with Mary Jane candies, Cow Tales, Hershey nuggets in Gold Bar boxes, truffle filled red bandanna boxes, gold rock candy, Hershey chocolate bars wrapped in coordinating paper, chocolate "gold" and "silver" rocks, along with chocolate coal and bandanna mints. I also filled buckets with Slim Jims, trail mix and pub mix.

The Party Table & Party Favors:
I decorated the kids table with activity place-mats, cookie filled treat bags, pie tins and paper cutlery pockets I made with my Cricut. I ironed on graphics to muslin favor bags (tutorial here) and filled them with goodies. I ordered a wooden rubber band gun for each child from Back Woods Toys and made cowboy crayon rolls for them to color their activity place-mats. Each child also received a bandanna, mustache, badge and cowboy hat. Because hygiene is of the utmost importance for every cowboy and cowgirl, Angelique of Favor Boutique by Angelique made the adorable red and brown cowboy boot soaps.
