Western Themed Birthday Party | Choosing a Western Theme Birthday Party Invitation

If you are planning a birthday party and trying to find a theme that is versatile and fun try throwing an Western Themed Birthday Party. There are many ways to incorporate the western cowboy theme into your party via decorations, favors and paper goods. The first and perhaps most important step is choosing a Western Themed Birthday Invitation that you love.

A birthday invitation is the first form of correspondence your guest will see with regard to your party. It is important to choose an invitation that is eye catching and fun, while still reflecting “you”. With the increasing popularity of country artists such as Taylor Swift, many people are using the western theme for their birthday party needs.  

One of the first things you should do, is choose a color scheme for your party and try to find an invitation that will fall into that scheme. If you find a western themed invitation that you absolutely love, you may want to tailor your color scheme to fit that invitation, as not all invitations have various color options.

When choosing a western themed birthday invitation try to figure out the type of invitation you are looking for. Do you want something whimsical and cartoon-ish? Or perhaps you want something a little more stylish and sophisticated to go with a particular age group. There are many options that can be utilized for either type of invitation.

If you are looking for a whimsical invitation, whether for a small child’s party or an older/teenager’s party, it is best to choose something that is colorful and eye appealing. Cartoon-ish children or babies dressed as cowboys are often seen in western themed birthday invitations. These type of invitations are very popular right now as they appeal to the young as well as the old. Horseshoe, farms, animals, hayrides and hoe downs are also popular aspects of the whimsical cowboy themed birthday invitation.

If you are looking for a more sophisticated and mature western birthday party invitation, try choosing less color and more design elements. Silhouette invitations are very popular right now and often feature few colors and contrasting shades. Pink and brown is an extremely popular color combination we are seeing more and more of these days. This Cowgirl Boots Pink Birthday Party Invitation showcases the western theme while incorporating one of the most popular color combinations we are seeing right now in invitations.

Another example of a this simple and chic style is this Cowboy Boots Blue Birthday Party Invitation. The contrasting blue, brown and white provides a less “girly” color palette than the pink and brown, but is still a modern and trendy invitation that can be used for either sex. This invitation is also perfect for western themed birthday parties that will be using a lot of denim colors in their decor.

No matter which invitation you choose for your western themed birthday party, remember that guests will get a first glimpse into your special day by opening their invitation. Choose a design that fits “you” and is something that guests will remember and talk about for a long time to come. Accessorize your party with matching address labels, stickers and western themed thank you cards to complete your party from start to finish.
