For individuals with a penchant for riding horses and country music, a Western-themed party may be a match made in cowboy heaven. For your next adults-only event, add some excitement with a bit of country flavour. Encourage guests to RSVP, put on their cowboy boots and head out west.
Line Dance Lessons
Rustle up the guests at your party and get them shaking their boots to some line dancing lessons. There are an endless number of line dances to go with the Western songs of both current music and songs from long ago. Cue up a DVD of line dances and gather guests around to learn the steps to dances such as West Coast Swing, Dallas Shuffle, Two Step and the Cha Cha and familiar country songs such as "I Want to Be Loved," "Keeps Gettin' Better," "Chicky Chow Chow" and "Country Struttin'". Another option is to have your party at a country western bar, which often offers free line dancing lessons early in their evenings. You can also contact a bar or dance studio to inquire about hiring a line dance instructor to come to your party for private lessons.
Find inexpensive belt buckles at thrift stores, craft shops or Western-goods stores and purchase enough for each party guest. Set up a buckle-decoration table at your party, where guests can emblazon their new accessories with stick-on gems, glitter, feathers, paint and other craft items. Offer prizes for the most glitzy, the most Western style and the most outrageous belt buckles, then let guests display their new accessories, which also serve as a take-home memento of the party.
Let the guests at your party challenge their athletic ability when you rent a mechanical bull for your party. While many country western bars offer this attraction in their facilities, you can have one delivered right to your home for the private use of your party guests. Companies such as Mechanical Bull Nationwide offer home delivery of the mechanical bulls (rentals also include a skilled, trained operator to stand by), plus options such as inflatable pads for when (not if) the bull knocks your party guests off. Have partygoers compete to see who can last anywhere close to the famed "eight seconds" while holding on for dear life.
