Whoa Lil’ Cowboy! Don’t miss these!

Horse-Chalkboard-Decal-L13713419Get carried away with your cowboy baby room! How cute would it be to have a large horse shaped chalkboard in the nursery? Kids and parent’s alike love chalkboards. This bold pony will also add a huge impact to your western-theme nursery, and work well into the elementary school years.

Babies love looking at dark contrasting edges, so this horse with it’s complicated edge will interest baby from the earliest days.

There are many cute bedding sets with a western theme. The boy versions seem to either be red and blue with brown, or baby blue with deep brown. If you prefer the bright tones, this crib set from Cassidy and Banjo is really fun. We found it on the Small In The Saddle site. The combination of red and blue paisley with warm tan instead of dark brown is very inviting, especially with the brick red walls shown in their photo. Another warm-tones bedding set which is very nicely designed is the Carson Baby Crib Bedding by Glenna Jean. We found it at babysupermall.com and show some of the coordinating items below.

If you prefer the blue theme, there are many options for baby bedding and room themes.  One of my favorites is the lighthearted design from Trend Lab offered at www.lilrodeo.com. The set is playful and interesting, all boy, and contrasts beautifully with dark furniture. The matching pieces are adorable.

Charming baby gifts for a cowboy baby shower will get ooohs and ahhhs at the shower and become part of the fun effect of the nursery. This horse security blanket is downright adorable. I found it at the www.lilrodeo.com site as well. Other fun gifts we found were rope wall art spelling baby’s name, burp cloth sets in western designs, diaper bags, and of course, western duds.

Western Styles for Kids

One of my favorite trends is western for kids. While toy guns make the mom in me cringe, these finds make her coo:

Cowboy stuff was very popular when my dad was growing up. Today, it’s not just for the boys. You can find cowgirl gear for your little palomino princess if you just look online. Cowgirl birth announcements, cowboy birthday invitations, even cowbaby baby shower invitations, itty bitty boots and hats are all out there waiting to be rounded up.

The best part? When a kid’s room is decorated buckaroo style, a little dirt blends right in.

Set out the welcome mat with fun western decor like we found on the web. (Just click the links below to go straight to these items.) Besides cowboy baby shower paper goods, decorations and favors, extend your decorations to a toddler cousin? Do you have a toddler you can put in a western costume during the party? The little cowboy will create a lot of fun conversation. For the centerpiece, consider a “cowboy diaper cake,” like the adorable one shown here, that doubles as a gift for the baby!

More cowboy baby shower decorations can be made using bandanas and cowboy hats:

  • light blue bandanatie a rolled bandana around a small potted plant as a shower favor and/or table decoration. You can find bandanas in almost any color to match your cowboy shower color theme. Red? light blue? navy blue? All will work well for a baby cowboy!
  • put a cowboy hat on each table. They can be worn by the guests who enjoy the theme, and taken home. A tiny baby cowboy hat would get some ooohs and ahhhs!. For color, you could tie a rolled bandana around each hat.
  • fold bandanas into fun origami shapes, silverware pouches or tie them in a knot around each bundle of silverware

Consider using mom-to-be advice cards as a cowboy baby shower activity. Each guest fills out an advice card, and they are collected for the mom-to-be. They can be added to the baby scrapbook, and will be priceless later.

Don’t forget, while planning your shower, the simple rules of baby shower ettiquette. Don’t assume your guests will bring gifts, or tell them what to bring on the invitation. Choose your activities with your guests preferences in mind. And, make it a special party for the mom-to-be AND your guests! Lastly, the new mama needs to send personally written thank you notes for each gift received. You could help her by providing a copy of the address list from the shower invitations.

Make your shower gift a huge hit by playing on the theme… cowboy gifts that will be fun to give at the shower, and fun for the parents later! Check out these adorable cowboy theme gift ideas for baby and cowboy baby room… from baby cowboy toys to cowboy baby booties.
