A Family Hoedown Birthday Party

A Family Hoedown Birthday Party

It's time to put on your cowboy boots and mosey on over for a fun family hoedown birthday party! Ruthie McDonald of Eutopia Events teamed up with her business partner to create this charming western inspired bash for her son Leo's first birthday. The theme inspiration came from Ruthie's mom, a huge western fan, which is evident in her collection of hats they used to set up a cute "Hat Rental" station. So fun!

The decor paired perfectly with the theme, featuring rustic burlap, beautiful sunflowers, hay bale seating, and hand painted wooden signs. The party was full of fun activities, including hay rides, sack races, apple bobbing, and lawn games. They topped off the day with individual s'mores packets for guests to toast up on the fire. More sweet goodness followed them home in some adorable Western themed cookie favors from Crumbs Cookies and Cakes. All of the photos were captured by Michelle Girard Photography, and you can see more over in the full gallery!
