For centre pieces for my cousins wedding we purchased small cowboy hats and attached a horseshoe to the side if them with wheat, flowers and ribbon. The horseshoes were used ones so we sprayed them to match.
On the stage we put bales, saddles, hat , boots along with flowers, corn stocks, cow skulls.
Throughout the whole hall we had slabs and fences with hats and flowers and burlap bows.
The cake table had a Texas longhorn horns behind it and infront was wagon wheels, chaps, bridles and a cow skull and branding irons. It took us 2 days to decorate for this wedding but it turned out just fantastic.
For another wedding I did stirups decorated up for centre pieces. Hope this helps you out. Please forgive all the typos!!!
