Real Party: James Owen’s Cowboy Themed 5th Birthday

Today I have the pleasure of wowing you with another gorgeous event from Lovely Little Parties and Melanie Mauer. The amazing duo paired together, this time for a little boy’s birthday, with his mother, Joy Robyn Dixon Fenwick. With its Western cowboy theme, every detail of this party (which took place at the Red Mile in Lexington, Kentucky) is utterly charming!
