Little House on the Prairie
Quilt Invitation - Decorate plain
note cards with squares of scrapbook paper glued on the front in
a quilt pattern.
- in the invitation send a 6" x 6" (or whatever size you choose)
square piece of fabric and ask the guest to decorate the fabric
and also put their name on it. Ask them to bring it with them
to the party. During the birthday party let the guests sew
together their fabric squares to make a starting quilt for the
Little House Decorations
Decorate party tables (picnic tables work great!) in blue and white
gingham table cloths.
Place artificial wildflowers in glass or metal containers on the table -
tie a pretty ribbon around the vases.
Decorate with fun "old west" items such as wagon wheels,
hay bales, old lanterns, covered wagons, etc.
At each place setting put a tin cup (find them at outdoor stores in
the camping section) and put the tableware and napkin inside tied with a gingham ribbon.
Hang brown butcher paper on the walls and draw "logs" with a marker.

to a trailer you can fill the back of a pickup or large wagon with hay.

and make smores.

guests make their own ice cream for the party . Check videos on

have instructions for making it in a blender, plastic bag and coffee
