Plan a Sheriff Callie's Wild West Birthday Party Theme
Yee-haaaa! Hold onto your horses – the latest craze that kids are going mad for is Sheriff Callie’s Wild West.
The TV show, which airs on Disney Junior, features the eponymous Sheriff Callie, a Calico cat that wants to make her small town the friendliest in the west. With her pals Deputy Peck (a woodpecker) and Toby (a cactus), Callie fights crime, solves problems and helps the residents of Nice and Friendly Corners (yes, that’s the real name of the town) to get along with one another.
With heart-warming, educational morals for children to learn in every episode, a plethora of song-and-dance numbers to get involved in, and some memorable Wild West-style characters, it’s little wonder kids are working themselves into a tizzy over this show! Here’s how you can throw your little ones a Sheriff Callie’s Wild West party that they’ll never forget!
Read on to find Sheriff Callie invitations, western decorations to create a fitting scene for your Sheriff Callie's wild west birthday party theme, fun party favor ideas, birthday cake decorating ideas and much more.
Sheriff Callie's Wild West Birthday Party Invitations and Ideas
The first step in throwing your Wild West-themed party is to prepare the invitations. Luckily, you’ll find plenty of ideas and downloadable resources online to help you stick with the theme and create a stack of adorable invitations! Here are some of the best ideas:
- Rosette invitations – a good cowboy or cowgirl is never without a loyal steed, and their beloved horse is likely to be covered in winning rosettes. Why not make your invitations in the shape of prize-winning rosettes? That way the recipients will want to hold onto them long after the party has ended.
- Printable resources – if you’ve not really got the time to create your own invitations, you can print off these free Sheriff Callie’s Wild West party invitations and simply fill in the details!
Sheriff Callie's Wild West Birthday Party Decorations and Ideas
Callie, the star of the show, wears a pink cowboy hat in each episode, so that gives you a simple color palette to start you off. Obviously, if your child has another favorite (like Toby, who’s green, or Deputy Peck, who’s red) you can personalize the color scheme to ensure your child’s favorite character takes center stage.
The doorway is the first thing your guests will see – so why not make a pair of fake saloon doors out of cardboard and attach them to your doorway? Guests can push through the swinging doors as they enter, and it’ll feel like they’re walking into a traditional Wild West trading post.
Hay bales are great for creating a Wild West theme – you should be able to pick them up cheaply from a local farm, or alternatively you can hire them from an event planner or party company. These will give your guests a comfortable place to sit, and will also go a long way in making your home or party venue feel like a real western town!
Banners and bunting are also a great way to emphasize the theme. Cute Sheriff Callie’s Wild West banners are available from Etsy and can be pinned up on the wall as added decoration. Bandana-style decorations are ideal for a cowgirl theme too, bandana bunting would be a fun addition to decorations. If you’re stuck for a tablecloth, you could also use layers of real bandanas to protect your surfaces from spillages.
Free Sheriff Callie coloring pages can be printed off, colored in and hung around the room as posters. Your little one can color in Sheriff Callie, Toby and Peck and see her artwork featured on the walls on her big day.
In each episode of the show the name of the episode is shown on a wooden sign and in the wild west that was how they found their way around. We could easily incorporate this into our Sheriff Callie birthday decorations by having a wooden sign (cardboard sign) that reads something like “Welcome to Katy’s birthday” or even “Welcome to Nice and Friendly Corners”. It really doesn’t have to be tidy so just scribble the words on with a marker making sure the letters are in caps.
Sheriff Callie's Wild West Birthday Party Printables
Printables are a great way to add themed décor to your party especially since official party pieces for this theme are not available yet. This checkered blue and pink cowgirl style Sheriff Callie birthday party printables pack has plenty of lovely pieces you can use for your little cowgirls party. The pack includes templates to make a birthday banner, cupcake toppers, favor toppers, gift tags, place holders, labels for bottles, candy wrappers and more.
As seen in the pic above Mybirchbaby.com utilised these printables to put together a lovely Sheriff Callie table setup. They also feature plenty of ideas for cowgirl foods that can be served at the party.
Pink Cowgirl Birthday Supplies
Pink Cowgirl Party decorations would match perfectly with this theme. Sheriff Callie is always wearing her pink hat, pink boots and her pink bandana. As seen in the pic above a pink tablecover would set the tone for some other beautiful party table décor. I just love how everything matches from the birthday bunting to the balloon bouquets and streamers in the background.
Sheriff Callie's Wild West Birthday Party Cake Decorations and Ideas
The sky’s the limit when it comes to dreaming up your Sheriff Callie’s Wild West birthday cake! You could go for a cake with Callie herself on it, you could create star-shaped Sheriff’s badge cake, or you could create a stylish tiered cake crowned with a cowboy hat like this magnificent creation.
Creating shaped cakes is pretty tough, so you might feel the need to enlist the help of a professional baker or cake decorator in order to get your Callie cake looking fantastic. If you’re feeling confident and planning to make the cake yourself, the internet has a multitude of fantastic cowgirl cake ideas for you to draw inspiration from!
Cupcakes are also a great idea for those who might struggle to make a full cake – and if you choose to make cupcakes, you don’t have to worry about cutting precise slices because they’re all the same size!

Sheriff Callie's Wild West Birthday Party Food Ideas
No party would be complete without a full buffet for guests to devour – here are our top Sheriff Callie’s Wild West party food ideas:
- Rice cakes, or cereal cakes covered in white chocolate make fantastic ‘hay bales’ that kids will love to snack on in between party games – plus they’re simple to make!
- Grab some chocolate-covered Pringles, some Rolo sweets and red candy laces. Using the Pringle as a base, add the Rolo to the top and tie a candy lace round the Rolo to recreate a chocolatey cowboy hat.
- For food that’s a little more substantial, try some corn on the cob and hamburger sliders. These will prevent kids from filling up on sugar, and will fit perfectly within the Wild West theme.
- Turn a cowboy hat upside-down and use it as a bowl for popcorn or other types of candy.
- This great cowboy boot cookie tutorial gives you another type of food to add to your buffet table. You could even refrain from frosting the cookies and create a little activity workstation for your guests to help!
- Call your drinks station the ‘Watering Hole’, and give each drink a cowboy-related name. Kids will love sipping on ‘Cactus Cola’, ‘Sheriff Squash’ and ‘Prairie Punch’.
- Ella Cowbelle owns the local saloon and serves the tastiest milk shakes in town. Make a few healthy fruit shakes to have them them drink. Check out Sallys baking addiction's easy recipe for making strawberry milkshakes all the kids will love.

Sheriff Callie Birthday Party Game Ideas

- Pin The Tail On The Donkey – what cowboy-themed party would be complete without this party classic? Kids are blindfolded and must pin a fake tail in the right position on a wall-mounted donkey pictures. The kid that gets theirs the closest to the location of the real tail wins!
- Candy Apple Bobbing – bobbing for apples is great fun, and if you can get hold of an authentic-looking barrel, it will fit perfectly with the existing decorations!
- Cactus-Making – set up a craft station where kids can make their very own cactus to take home with them! Here's where you can find the tutorial and templates to do this.
- ‘Wanted’ Photo Booth – create a ‘Wanted’ poster template like this one and set up a photo booth with some fun props (and adult supervision!). Kids will have plenty of fun posing for hilarious pictures, and you can even print the pictures and use them as ‘thank you’ cards when the party is over.
- Lasso Tossing – create a lasso out of some old rope, and lay out a series of cones or other items that players must lasso. If you don’t have any old rope, or have safety concerns about using rope with kids around, an old hula-hoop works just as well for this party game!
- Gold Rush – crumple up some foil into small balls that look like rocks of gold or silver, then hide them in a ballpit, a sandpit or a small paddling pool. Give kids thirty seconds to collect as many as they can in this mining-themed game!
- *Horse shoe throwing game - In one of the episodes the town have a horse shoe throwing competition and it turns out that Peck is really good at it and boy does he know it a little too well. So it would be a very fitting game to play at the party. You can set up outdoors but if that's not possible, there are plastic horse shoe games which will allow you to play indoors. To avoid breaking anything use your hallway for this game.
- *Sheriff Callie coloring pages - slow things down a little by having the kids color in the characters from the show... All that's needed is some crayons and printed coloring pages.
