A Rootin’ Tootin’ Baby Shower for Your Little Cowboy (or Gal!)

Do you prefer country over rock n’ roll, horseback riding over automobiles, and Woody over Buzz Lightyear? Then you’ve probably been dreaming of a western-themed baby shower for that little bun in your oven!

First stop: Pinterest, for some really fun and cool party ideas. But we all know navigating the big P is no easy feat– it’s trickier than lassoing, square dancing, AND wearing sweaty leather chaps, all at the same time! No worries– we’ve rounded up a ton of ideas for you cowboy-style:

Tammy Mutter of Meghily's Party in Style threw a Sweet Lil' Cowboy baby shower for a friend's sister, and got creative with decorations by hanging western print onesies and strips of western style fabric above the fireplace. Cute and practical!

Your little one will get to wear these fabulous ensembles way after the party– try that with all streamers, balloons, and (kind of ugly) table toppers you splurged on at Party City.


No cowboy themed party is complete without a pair of boots and a lasso, and Tammy was very good at incorporating both into the decor.

How crafty is the sign of the baby's name made from an old rustic picture frame? A simple rope used as a border was a total game-changer, giving things an ultra-Western theme.

And can we talk about those boots? Are they a hand-me-down from dad? Were they a present from a real-life cowboy named Billy Bo Bronco? Did BabyGap do a line of country outfits that we need to link to?


Holy cowboy! How adorable (and mouthwatering– I am literally drooling buckets) are these western theme cupcakes?

Laura Aguirre of Laura's Little Party celebrated her 4th baby with a Lil' Buckaroo baby shower and had these delectable western-style cupcakes made using fondant toppers.

And did you notice the coordinating bandana-print cupcake liners? Such attention to detail!

What a spread! The menu, home-cooked by the mom-to-be's grandmother, consisted of BBQ dishes like pulled pork sandwiches, baked beans, corn on the cob, and coleslaw. If there’s anything more American than the cowboy, it’s BBQ. (Make sure you have a lot of sauce for the guests.)

Drinks were served on stacks of hay. Laura wrapped wooden spoons and forks in bandana-print napkins. The final touch to tie the whole table together? Accordion circles and fabric streamers in red, white, and blue. 


Classic country western decor was used for this boy baby shower, which blogger Paige of Small-and-Simple shared. Burlap, bandanas, and patches of denim hung from the shutters in the kitchen to enhance the look of the celebration. Simple, affordable, and definitely eye-catching!

Note: when cutting out jean pockets, steer clear of your bedazzled low-risers from 2006. This is a cowboy-themed party, not a juggalo fest (please do NOT Pinterest/Google this). 

A delightful dessert option comes courtesy of Mandy Sexton from Spaceship and Laser Beams. She shared a cowboy-themed baby shower that was put together by Coline & Nicole of Sans Soucis Events.

Check out these Western-style cake pops that were displayed in a wooden crate filled with straw. For the label, how cute (and clever!) is that miniature wooden chair?


And for the piece de resistance, what Pinterest-worthy party would be complete without a photo booth? Fun for your guests, and even more fun for YOU to capture how trashed everyone was at your party (you still got it!), thanks to that booze-in-a-bottle chugging game. Make sure to provide bandanas, cowboy hats, a wanted sign, and some gigantic cacti for theme-appropriate props.
