Howdy, partners! My son turned 2 over the weekend, and we turned our territory into a western ranch for the occasion. For the invitations, I used cowboy terms like “saddle up” and “mosey over,” “bend an elbow and cool yer heals with the other buckaroos,” etc., letting guests RSVP by saying, “Yee-haw! We’ll be there” or “Dagnabbit, we can’t make it.” I made the envelopes out of brown paper lunch bags. I cut off the bottoms of the bag to do this, then I used the bottoms to make stand-up name tags for each deputy.
My son was the Sheriff, and all his friends were the Deputies. They got badges with their favor bags, which I filled with cowboy and indian figures, cowboy crayons, and kazoos. Each cowboy (and cowgirl, his big sister) also got their own stick horse to keep, thanks to the local dollar store.
