Western party themed inspiration and ideas

Western Party Theme

Y’all ready for a good time?

About the Theme

For a lively atmosphere that encourages plenty of dance and party shenanigans, look to a cowboy-inspired party theme. You can give this theme an old school wild West spin, or keep things modern with a rustic-chic ranch ambience. On the invitation, include wording that tells guests to dress up in their best western wear: boots, bandanas, belt buckles and cowboy hats encouraged.

VIBE: Rustic


Venue Settings

Outdoor Bar

Replicate your own version of the wild West with an outdoor location. The al fresco atmosphere is reminiscent of the western frontier and the bar will be stocked with different types of whiskeys just like an old town saloon.



Book a caricaturist to create a custom cameo for each of your guests. This comedic art form makes a great party favor that everyone can take home.

Western Band

While a man wearing a straw hat playing the harmonica in an old-timey jail cell is optimal… these western bands are a pretty great second. Have the band play some bluesy, acoustic music ballads as guests arrive, then get everyone dancing after dinner.

Trail Mix Bar

For customized snacking, set up a trail mix bar. Present sweet and savory options for a delicious balance including chocolate (dark chunks, white chocolate chips), pretzels, nuts (almonds, peanuts or cashews) and dried fruit (cranberries, raisins).

Walk on over to the saloon and order an classic whiskey cocktail like an old-fashioned or keep it simple and enjoy your sip on the rocks.
