WANTED! WILD WEST PARTY

This party had me laughing at first sight!  I love the concept behind the WANTED! Party that Margit, of Dot & Dash hosted for her daughter's birthday.  Margit describes her daughter as "...ADORABLE BUT VERY NAUGHTY" and Margit planned the entire party around the idea that her daughter was "wanted" for her naughty behaviors and included those on the invitations!  Margit infuses humor and western style in this cute party for her outlaw of a daughter!

The Birthday Girl's big brother helped list her "crimes" and Margit turned them into an focal point of the invitation.  Surrounded by the wild west decor, this wanted birthday girl had the prettiest jail cell around and a fabulous dessert display awaiting after her capture!

Candies included chocolate marshmallows (tumbleweeds), pink peanuts, and pretzels (lassos)~

Funny signs graced the party throughout~

I really love the pink shutters that Margit used as part of the backdrop~

A General Store was set up with activities for the guests.  Margit said that the Marshmallow Shooters alone would have kept these  cute cowpokes busy!

The Photo Booth provided lots of fun for the kids to pose behind the bars of the jail!

Margit served the guests a meal from the Chuck Wagon~pulled pork, mac and cheese, slaw, fruit, and corn bread.  Utensils were wrapped in bandannas...

Juices were served in Mason Jars with Daisy Lids or from Juice Boxes wrapped in party paper that read, "...the naughtiest baby in these parts..."~  Drinks for the grown-ups also included beverages from the "Saloon" and the signature adult drink of the party, ON THE RUM PUNCH~

The cute Birthday Girl doesn't look anything like an outlaw to me!  Margit says, "...This party was non-stop fun for all the guests, including the birthday girl, who knew it was her special day and was on her very best behavior.".

Thank you for sharing the fun with us, Margit!  Such a funny and cute way to celebrate Avery's true spirit!
