Western Hoedown

Focal point coming into the event: Using poster board, several pieces taped together, creating an arch walk through. Trim the top to create an arch at the top. Cover the poster board with stars, rope, and maybe hay. Attach it around the doorway with packing tape. {You may want to create it in two separate pieces so you can transport it to your event.}

For extra, you can cut out various "Western" themed items from poster board (cowboy hats, cowboy boots, horses, sheriff's badge, etc.) or have hay bales (you can purchase these at craft stores) and place it on the bottom of the arch.

Attire: For this event you can wear jeans, a "cowgirl" skirt, plaid/flannel/button-up shirt, leather belt, boots, cowboy/straw hat, bandana(s) and/or a sheriff's badge. For extra, you can wear tassels or fringe on your shirt/jacket.

Decorations inside the facility: Decorations could include participants decorating a star, horse, cowboy boot or hat, wanted posters, or hay bale. You can create them out of construction paper and/or poster board. Each group could receive a pattern for the decoration. Collect the decorations at the next meeting before the dance. Before the guests arrive tape them on the wall behind the tables. Personal touch yet very festive. Cuts down on cost for the event as well.

Refreshments: Festive tablecloths in bright colors, plaid/flannel "blanket" material, faux leather, or any western colors should be used to cover the table. These can be covered with clear plastic tablecloth covers. Place a plastic basket of potato chips (put in individual bags or buy individual bags), peanuts (be aware of allergies!), do-si-do® cookies (contain peanut butter!), oatmeal cookies, oatmeal creme pies®, hershey kisses®, pretzels, and/or candies on each table with a bandana lined bowl. Water bottles can be placed on each table and you can stick western themed stickers on them. Use a piece of cardstock folded over to place on each table with the name of the group.

Extra: Take photos of each group or if it is a parent/daughter event take pictures of couples. A backdrop could be a black sheet with stars attached to it. You can also stamp western theme items on on the fabric as well or stencil the lettering "Western Hoedown" on the backdrop. You could also have an some items listed above from here (wanted posters) or have the child hold a horse on a stick or a lasso. Child sits on stool and parent stands or they can both sit on hay bales.
