Levi's First Birthday!

How is it possible that Levi is already one year old!! Boy did the year fly by! We threw a cowboy themed party for him and it was loads of fun!!

I found these adorable vintage cowboy party invitations on Ebay.

You've heard of a tablecloth right? Well I made a counter cloth for the party. I took bandana printed fabric and hot glued on some fringe and laid it out on our kitchen counter for decoration. I added some farm toys and cowboy hats too.

Some cowboy rubber duckies and red, white, and blue stars were more decoration.

Mini corn bread muffins. Cowboy cute food!

We had a proper BBQ for lunch. Homemade pulled pork I slow roasted for 9 hours the day before. Served on Sweet Hawaiian rolls. Homemade coleslaw, bbq chips, cornbread muffins and some yummy baked beans we picked up from Famous dave's BBQ restaurant. Yummo!

I tried to find "cowboy" soda's. This is what I came up with: litttle mini bottles of Coke, Cactus Cooler soda (I bought because the can looks cool, but it turns out it's really tasty) and Cream Soda because the can had a vintage look to it. (the kids drank juice)

Cute bandana plates and napkins.

Instead of getting matching cake plates I went with these red, white, and blue cherry plates.

I had a bucket of vintage looking candy out for decoration.

I went to all the bakeries around and NO ONE made a cowboy cake. So I had the bakery make me this cake with grass and water on it and added my own horses to the top. Turns out if you buy a cake without a kit used it cost less too.

The kids were all to little to play pin the tail on the donkey so we just used it for decoration. It also made a cute background for photos.

The cowboy party favors were placed in bandana bags I found on Ebay and tied with raffia.

"Happy Bithday to You"

Do you think he liked the cake????

Here I am with my little buckeroo.

My little cowboy had a great day!
