Horse Birthday Party Food and Decorations
If you are hosting an outdoor party, go to a local farm and get a few bails of hay to use for decoration or seats. If the party is indoors, make stirrups from construction paper and attach them to the chairs.
- Cut horseshoe and cowboy hat shapes out of construction paper and hang throughout the party area. Or just hang real cowboy hats on the backs of chairs.
- Make pretend fences with cardboard "planks," scissors, a marker, and packing tape.
- Hang a horse pinata.
- If your party is in late summer or fall, decorate with cornstalks or bales of hay.
When it comes to food let's start by saying that partygoers are usually perfectly content to eat pizza or hotdogs, and it is certainly much easier on the hosts! However, if you have the time, and would like to serve theme-related treats, we have a few suggestions.
- Serve “straw” French fries. Thinly cut fries work best.
- Give each child an apple. Instruct them to try and eat it like a horse...no hands!
- Set up a Chuck Wagon and serve:
- Sloppy Joes, Chili, or Grilled Hamburgers and Hotdogs
- Horseshoe biscuits - shape biscuit dough into a horseshoe shape and bake as directed
- Root Beer
- S’mores (Graham Crackers, Marshmallows, Hershey’s Chocolate Bars) Toast Marshmallows until golden. Place a piece of chocolate on a graham cracker and top with warm marshmallow. Put another graham cracker on top of the marshmallow and sandwich together!
