Lone Ranger/Cowboy Birthday Party Ideas


 In light of some recent requests (Thank you to my new viewers via pinterest) .. I was asked to post some pics of my son's 6th birthday Lone Ranger Party.  We are so excited for the upcoming release of Disney's The Lone Ranger starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer (Double YUMMY!!!) coming out in theaters on July 3rd.

When I learned of an impending Lone Ranger Movie, I began going to the library with my boys to show them the old Lone Ranger Shows.  I swear we rented them weekly because the boys were sooo fascinated by the old west, Lone Ranger and Tonto.  I loved how wholesome and pure the shows were and the great messages behind each episode.

My oldest decided he wanted a Lone Ranger Themed Birthday Party.  We had to plan all activities indoors due to the weather.  However, if your son or daughter has a warmer weather birthday ... the possibilities for outdoor games are endless.

First let me start with the invites!  


My new silhouette was amazing to create functional/adorable masked invites.  These invites are great for any type of masked celebration.  If you own a Silhouette Cameo, I downloaded (MASK) - The Shape to use for your invite.

Remember to replicate, invert the image (Mirror)  and merge the two together to create the fold at the base of the Masked image.  Remove the two eye holes on one side of the mask.  Here you will use sketch pens to create invite information for the parents.

Enlarge your masked image to the size of the invitation you would like to use.  Keep in Mind Envelope sizes and the length of string you have to tie onto each end of the mask.  You can create a serrated fold so that your guest can wear the holed mask side while the parent keeps the party information side of the invitation.

I went to Hobby Lobby and grabbed Long Brown Envelopes as well as long stretch string (go to the sewing department for this).  The paper I used for the actual mask was thick cardstock.  DO NOT GET THE GLOSSY SCRAP BOOK PAPER... it is terrible to cut and fold.  


Food preparation is a breeze... KEEP it simple
