Willow's Sheriff Callie Wild West 5th Birthday Party
Willow's 5th birthday and she really wanted to have a Disney Sheriff Callie Wild West party. This is her favourite TV program at the moment. I still wasnt too sure but when I took my oldest son to Auckland I found a great party shop that gave me lots of inspiration. When I got home I found my material box and started by sewing buntings in Cowboy colours and pink gingham and matching table runners.
Here is Willow's 5th birthday invitation. I got ideas of the internet and was quite pleased at how it turned out.
Since we had so many children coming (30 kids on the day.. I know insane!) we decided not to do the usual party games like pass the parcel as they all take to long with that many kids. Instead we played Pin the badge on Sherrif Callie and had a pinata. We hired Ponycycles and these were a huge hit. Even the adults got in on the fun.
As well as the games we had we also had some free play games around the backyard for everyone. We made a Cactus rope throw game which turned out way better than I thought. Im not the best artist so I was pleased with this.
We brought lots of cow print balloons and pink ones also, made buntings in our colour scheme. I managed to find Hay Print table cloths for the tables and brought Sheriff Callie Toys for the table also. Out the back we have an old shelter that we store the kids bike and trailer in. We cleared this out and made it into a Country Barn. We brought Pink and Brown cowboy hats for all the children and bandannas. There were also Sheriff Badges for anyone who wanted them . Willow and I had an arts afternoon and tried to make a wooden sign with her name. We got more free pallets and made a Saloon (our drink station) and picked up some bales of pea straw for seats. Out the front we set up our big gazebo for the food.
We had music playing in the background for the entire party. It was quite different to music we usually listen to but everyone enjoyed it and I even saw a bit of line dancing from some of the adults.
