Whimsical sugar cookies mimic with the incredible boot cake (more on the cake in a moment) while girly pink and brown take center stage in the Neapolitan macarons, cupcakes and whoopie pies.  And wait… I spy s’mores, on a stick!  Made with homemade strawberry marshmallows!

Guests were entertained with classic cowgirl games like horseshoes, ring toss and sack racing.  Their game tickets were redeemable for candy and other goodies available at the ‘country store’.  How cute is that?

Erin from Three Little Blackbirds gives us the party scoop:

“The party was for a little cowgirl turning 8 who loves all things country.  The birthday party featured an organic dessert table with two cakes (a vintage feminine tiered cake, and a cowgirl boots cake), whoopie pies, cupcakes, smores on a stick made with homemade strawberry marshmallows, mini blackberry pies on a stick, flavored gourmet popcorn, macarons, boot sugar cookies, jars of candy, cowgirl cookie mix favors, and homemade organic flavored milks (strawberry, chocolate, vanilla, and rootbeer milk).

There was also a little country store where the kids at the party could use their tickets they earned by playing games (horseshoes, lasso the cow, ring toss, and sack racing) to “buy” scoops of candy and other goodies.”

A very special thank you to Erin Schaefgen and Avalon Yarnes for sharing their Vintage Cowgirl Birthday Party with us today!  It has us kicking up our boots in excitement!

    This party was so adorable. I’m wondering how was the name made out of rope exactly made? I’m have thesame theme for my daughter in 2 weeks and would love to use this ideas.
