Western party shopping adventures...

I did a bit of shopping this weekend and you'll never guess what I found at the Dollar Tree?!? Just look at these cowboy shaped bubble containers!!  

I also managed to find these red western-style hats and hankerchefs at the Dollar Tree.

The sheriff badges are from Hobby Lobby in their birthday aisle.

The mini cowboy hats are also from Hobby Lobby in their doll making section.

I'm planning on offering bottled water/juice boxes at Josie's friend party, but I had fun jazzing up our rootbeer bottles with left over hankerchefs from my Western inspired bunting and topping the bottles with mini hats.

At a different dollar store near our home, I found these vinyl/paper western vests for .50 cents.
We even stopped at an estate sale after mass on Sunday and scooped up a few plastic horse figurines. 
 It was the 3rd day of the estate sale and everything was priced to sell.  After a bit of cleaning, these dusty horses seem happy with their new home.

Thank you again for this great image, Meri

Yeehaw... this sure is turning into a fun party theme!  It was a productive weekend with gorgeous weather.  I guess I'm ready for another long work-week.  Happy Monday!

You find the best stuff at the Dollar Tree. I don't know what you're going to do when Josie gets past the theme party stage. You may have to go into the party planning business! I'll start working on a name for it for you.
