ABOUT THE THEME
Give your next party an interactive spin: Head out west and see who survives the Oregon Trail. This party is more or less a vintage Western theme that pays homage to the famed ’90s computer game, The Oregon Trail. Tell guests to come dressed in their chosen occupation (the game offered eight "job" choices: banker, doctor, merchant, blacksmith, carpenter, saddlemaker, farmer or teacher) and to prepare themselves for the adventure ahead.
