Now this was something I could get excited about. Lots of pink, lots of farmhouse vintage stuff, and a little bit of hay. I even enlisted Terry to get some items from his junkyard of stuff to help decorate for the party and give an even more rustic feel. The food was simple, hot dogs, beans, and chili. Perfect for little cowgirls and cowboys. For drinks, we went with glass bottles of old fashioned root beer and pink Jarritos.

In the backyard of my mother's house, we set up about three large rectangular tables with brown paper (crab feast paper for those from the Baltimore area) and tin stars hanging from the trees all around.

As the children entered the party, they were cowboyed up (or cowgirled up). Kids were dressed in bandanas, cowboy hats, and sheriff badges to get them ready for the afternoon.
|We used this galvanized crate for bandanas and the wooden crate for badges.|
