Texas Style Decor
The stereotype of Texans is that everyone's a cowboy, so play that up with Western-themed decorations. If you're having your party outside, set some hay bales around and hang lots of clear twinkle lights. If you're doing it indoors, hang up pictures of Texas, pictures of boots, and anything that brings cowboys to mind. Lassos, pictures of horses, cowboy hats to hang on the walls and some stuffed armadillos will definitely create a Texas atmosphere. Hang bandannas around the room and on the walls. Guests can slip them on if they're feeling a little country. It goes without saying that you can't have a Texas party without country music, so have that playing in the background.
Texans love barbecue, so be sure and serve some at your hoedown. Serve "fixins" alongside the barbecue, such as corn on the cob, mashed potatoes, rolls with butter and any type of casserole. All types of vegetables go great with barbecue, or just set out some chips and dip. Texans love hot chile con queso dip, which you can make by melting Velveeta cheese with a can of Rotel. To drink, Texans can't get enough of sweetened iced tea, ice cold beer, and margaritas. Cold soda for non-drinking guests will work, too. For dessert, nothing beats pecan pie, a favourite of Texans. Don't forget the vanilla ice cream to top it off.
Games And Activities
Texans love to go outside and play games such as horseshoes, croquet and volleyball. Sack races are also a good option. Turn the music up and do some line dancing, square dancing, or round everyone up for the Cotton Eyed Joe, a popular Texas group dance that kids learn at an early age in the Lone Star State.
