Howdy y’all! Welcome to the wild, wild west.
When your client comes to you with an idea for a saloon themed party, you need to go all out. From mechanical bulls to whiskey tastings, we knew we had to create just the right balance of class and sass!
The evening began with the sounds of a live blue-grass duo and the visual backdrop of a classic black & white American Western movie projected in an adjourning atrium to further set the scene. Guests were offered cowboy hats and bandanas to complete their ensembles.
The first stop of the night? An antique photo booth filled with old world props and classic western attire to transform into character and capture all the western vibes in a sepia tinted photo to take home with them. The booth offered a quick-change option with all pieces to set the mood including women’s fringe dresses, boas, feathered headpieces, bowler & cowboy hats, vests, and cowboy boots.
If guests found themselves in need of refreshment they could sidle over to the custom saloon bar and place an order with the barkeep. Outfitted with rope, beer growlers, and a “Happy Trails” sign, the 12-foot bar was a centerpiece of the design.
Whiskey lovers were in for an additional treat with a whiskey tasting led by a bona-fide expert. Guests enjoyed sampling and learning about 6 different types of whiskey throughout the evening. The western look was completed with an antique wagon and whiskey barrel high-top tables.
The energetic crowd took respite in this perfectly western comfy soft seating arrangement which included real cowhide rugs and classic chesterfield style leather couches adorned with faux fur pillows and blankets.
As the guests mingled throughout the event, there was a multitude of experiences for everyone to enjoy including stylized versions of casino games such as darts, roulette, black jack, and pool.
Cowboys and girls took part in a professional line dancing class while ambitious guests took turns on the mechanical bull… this group was not afraid to let their inner western side show!
