For my daughter's 5th birthday she wanted to be a cowgirl. We invited 26 of her friends and hired a community hall where we held a Cowgirl & Cowboy Dance. This party was done on a really tight budget of $120 AUD. It was held between 4pm - 6pm which meant we could give the kids a decent amount of food rather than lots of little bits and pieces. I find this works out to be cheaper and a lot easier! About an hour into the party we provided american hotdogs, popcorn, and corn chips.

|Cheap plastic horses and icing cacti|
|Me standing next to my 'Wanted' poster - we made one for|
each family member and guest.
Mine was for Naggin and Yellin - don't you know it!
|The party table: flannel backed table cloths, aluminium pie plates, raffia "hay"|
recycled tins with marshmallows on sticks, and plastic miniature horses.
|Hobby Horses for Cowgirls to ride on|
|The hall was $45 to hire for the day|
|A tee pee I made out of a calico remnant and some broom handles.|
|One large calico sheet painted by my husband and some western themed cut outs stuck on|
made for a great backdrop for photos and dancing.
