You need some brown construction paper and some feathers. Cut animal print, leather or calico fabric in small squares. Then cut out a cowboy hat template. Now, fold the brown construction paper in half and cut out cowboy hats.
Use the fabric and leather to cut strips for a hatband. Then insert a feather underneath the band and glue them together onto the closed front of the invitation. Finally, write the invitation details on the inside and you are done.
Next, you need a western slogan to use in your cowboy baby-shower invitations, like "Wild Wild West Baby Shower" or "Saddle up, Buckeroos, and join us for a Travis' Wild Wild Cowboy Baby Shower!"

Cowboy Pancakes - Cornbread is a very southern traditional food. It can be prepared as a muffin or bread, as a crust, or even fried like a pancake. Corn cakes are fried cornbread "pancakes". Adding them to your menu will seem like a definitive once you realize how cute these pancakes can be. To really go along with the cowboy baby shower theme, use a metal boot, horse, western hat, and/or sheriff's star cookie cutter to make these delicious and fun finger foods! Cornbread mix is readily available in your local supermarket, and it can be prepared either sweet or savory depending on the add-ins that you use.
Tacos - Give the cowboy baby shower a tex-mex feel with tacos!
Not only are tacos very easy to make but they are fun to eat and enjoy. You can create a full "fixins" bar for the tacos also, which will add to the authenticity of the cowboy theme. Provide a variety of fillings such as ground beef, chicken breast, ground turkey, or grilled vegetables as the base. Offer corn and flour tortillas in both soft and hard shells. In cowboy themed bowls and on platters, place loads of shredded lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, salsa, sour cream, and anything that you think your guests will eat up!
Be sure to include plenty of "hay" - There is a Greek dessert that is made using frosted shredded wheat cereal called Kataife that looks just like haystacks, except with the sweetest most delicious taste to them! Horses aren't the only ones that will love this special treat, and it will cause quite a bit of a stir when guests realize that they can actually eat these "haystacks". The dessert is made by baking sugar, crushed walnuts, shredded wheat cereal, cinnamon, butter, and lemon juice together. There are many different recipes available for this. Go with one that suits your cooking ability and that you feel will be the most decadent!
Consider hiring a square-dance caller who can teach your guests how to square dance. Of course, make sure your shower place has the space for this activity.
- My Little Champion - best idea for sports fanatic parent-to-be.
- Musical Bottle Race - Just like Musical Chairs with a slight twist. Instead of walking around chairs, everyone sits while three baby bottles filled with beverages are passed around the circle. You don't want to getcaught with the bottle when the music stops because you'll be participating in a drinking race! If you lose the drinking race, you're out of the game. The last guest left in the game, wins! You can even add an element of surprise to this game by sealing the nipple of oneof the bottles. You can do this by overboiling the nipple on the stove. Get your camera out for the person drinking from the sealed nipple!
