Our little Max loves Cowboys so it was the perfect party theme! I made a bunch of food in theme and we kept the decorations simple making most of them ourselves. One of my favorite things was the 'campsite' area with the hay bales that provided us with the extra seating we needed. Everyone seemed to have a great time, especially Max, which is what's important.
Seeing everything all come together while setting up and thinking that 11 months of planning had come together well.
Max crying while everyone sang 'Happy birthday' to him.
