Glitzy Cowgirl Party

Hey guys!  Long time, no see!  Sorry I've been away for so long!  Just a little info.  I've decided to only use this blog to post about parties and DIY party stuff.  No more crafts, organization or anything else.  Have no fear though!  If you're into all that stuff and still want to see what I've been up to, you're in luck!  I've started a new blog just for that!  While I haven't posted my first project yet, I have several in the works.  I hope you'll come over and check it out!  Here's the link~ A Lazy Girl's Guide to Everything ~  Check out the All About Me page while you're there to learn more and don't forget to follow me on Facebook please!

Now, on to the really interesting stuff.  Today I'm showing you a party that I absolutely can not take all the credit for.  My friend Andrea asked me to help with the planning and styling of her little Lanie's 6th birthday party.  The theme?  I'm calling it Glitzy Cowgirl.  Andrea wanted a cowgirl theme, with just a bit of a twist.  Lanie had a pair of boots that started out as the jumping off point~ leopard print and pink.  However, two days before the party Andrea decided that she was having too much trouble finding anything to go with that theme and so instead of brown and pink and leopard print, a new color scheme was born.  Pink and black with lots of pattern and a little glitter thrown in for good measure.  Let me tell you, I fell in love with this color/pattern palette!  Also, I'm pretty sure I have a new addiction to glitter.  I spent one evening covering some little horses in mod podge and glitter and then I wanted to glitter everything in sight!  So cute!  Unfortunately, the wind was blowing really hard the day of the party and I only had my phone with me because I hadn't planned on taking pictures.  That means the few pictures I do have aren't very good, but hopefully you'll get the idea.
The Photo Booth!
Don't you just love the ribbon bow tied around the hay bale?!!  And Andrea made the bow on top using part of a plastic tablecloth!!!
Lanie already had this barn and the blanket in the background.  They fit the theme perfectly!
Aren't these cow print plates cute?!!  "Grub" included a "Make Your Own Trail Mix" bar.
A wagon was used as the "Waterin' Hole" and was later filled with ice and water bottles.
Yep, this "city girl" spent time helping move these hay bales to make the kids table.  The tops were covered with pieces of plastic tablecloths, but as you can see the wind didn't exactly cooperate. :-)
I threw together these frames at the last minute, but I think they may have been one of my favorite things!  I made napkin flowers and added sheriff badges to two of them.  The other two got the glitter horses I talked about earlier.  Don't you just love them?!!
When Andrea and I finished setting up, we looked around and I think we were both really impressed with how it turned out.  I really wish that the pictures did it justice.  Maybe someday I'll be able to afford a professional photographer! :-)
So, what do you think?  Is there a Glitzy Cowgirl in your life that would love this party?  Do you love glitter as much as I do?  :-)  Leave me some comment love and let me know your thoughts.  And don't forget to check out my new blog and follow me there and on Facebook!
Thanks everybody!

  1. Oh how cute. I love the idea of having a cowgirl party. My daughters are grown, but I'm racking up a ton of ideas for my future
