COWBOY PARTY IDEAS FOR COSTUMES

Invite your guests to come dressed up as little cowboys and cowgirls. In the alternative, you could opt to turn your little guests into honorary buckaroos. Tell them all to wear jeans and as they arrive, provide them with a bandana, cowboy hat, and a little vest. To save a little money, make the vests out of brown paper grocery bags.
