Those who have been reading my blog for awhile already know that my sweetheart is a cowboy wannabe.  He just had another birthday (they seem to come around more often these days!), so of course, he got a chuck wagon, cowboy birthday dinner.

I served a salad in clear glass bowls, which I put in “campfire skillets”, and the salad dressing was in the little boot jiggers at each place setting.

Vintage cowboy toys decorated a side table.  Yep, that’s the cowboy wannabe when he was a little bitty cowpoke.

The centerpiece for the dessert table was these cute candy kabobs that Sarah at Hyacinths for The Soul sent me.  (Obviously, Sarah knew my sweetheart would be getting another cowboy table soon.) I think the grands didn’t realize they were edible, so I was able to re-wrap them and save them until the next night, when the grands came trick-or-treating.  Sarah, I loved having these for a great centerpiece, and my grands loved getting them in their trick-or-treat buckets.  Thank you for all of the fun these darling kabobs provided at my house!
