Cowboy Birthday Party

I made the invite in photoshop. I got the idea from this Martha Stewart valentine.

I reused the banner from his first birthday.
I created photos from every three months of his life that looked old west and had the age printed right on them (I wish I had printed these bigger). I also made the back drop from pvc pipe and covered it in a bandanna quilt top I also made.
I altered these Cowboy cookie labels from Bakerella. I used kraft paper for the table cover. We had Settler's stew, BBQ chicken, honey corn muffins, potato salad (I'll post the recipe later, it's the best ever), green salad - with Dan's Ranch (um), IBC rootbeer -in bottles, Lemonade, and mom's green beans.I had all the galvanized tins from RJs blessing, it was great to reuse it all. I also altered the food flags from Style Me Pretty (I love them!) to say Happy Birthday.Mini pies - this was my first time making pie crust and I had to make 6 batches to do all these pies. I didn't even eat one, I was pretty turned off after all that work (ha ha). I got the idea from Not Martha.More flags with each of the flavors of the pies.We used straw bales to do barrel races with stick horses from the dollar store.
We also had roping lessons with a steer head.

This party is adorable!! I might have to steal the mini pie idea! We're throwing a "farm animal" party for our son in August. I have had the hardest time finding bandanas in bulk. Could you say where you found yours?
Thanks, S
