Western Baby Shower Decorations
You will want to have a place where you can put down hay bales as part of the decorations because hay is a perfect accessory for this theme. Whether in a form of table centerpiece using mini hays or larger ones where you can spread them out on the floor and strategically place them to serve as seating. With a nice balloon garland, the mommy-to-be and the guests will surely be impressed!
For the backdrop of the main table, you can set the scene with a rustic wooden barn door backdrop or wild west swinging doors backdrop. Maybe put some hay bales on either side of the table. Around the room, place items that can represent the old west, like ropes, saddles, lanterns, and heaps of paisley patterned fabrics and decors!
Make this baby shower unique by asking all of the guests to come dressed up in western attire, prepared to do some roping!
Editable Cowgirl Sign
An editable Cowgirl Sign could be a fun addition and add to the overall ambiance. An Editable Cowgirl Sign is also a good option if you want to customize the sign with your own text or message. This allows you to personalize the sign for your baby shower.

Western Baby Shower Games
Bloomers – Wrap up a gift box and tell the guests that they will pass the box around while some western-style music is playing. You can tell them that the box holds ‘bloomers’ and whichever guest winds up with it when the music stops must open the box and actually wear them. However, it is really a joke- as the box will actually contain a beautiful corsage that the winner can wear as a memory of this great baby shower.
Rope a Bottle
Set up some baby bottles in a corner of the room and have guests attempt to rope a baby bottle with a rope that you will provide. Each bottle will contain a slip of paper that has the name of a gift on it and when a guest ropes a bottle, they will receive that gift.
Cowgirl/boy guests will place a balloon between their legs and race to the end of the room and back. The winner will receive a gift you have prepared. To make it more interesting and challenging, being it a baby shower occasion, you can ask guests to also have a balloon in their belly as they race to and from!
Gather up all friends and families for a perfect photo booth session. You may need to print out a large poster that fits with the theme. A large “WANTED” sign in the background or have a session in a little tent studio with hays.
