[birthday party themes] pretty pony party

howdy partners!
we wanted to share a couple party themes we've had a lot of fun with... with you this week!
if you have a pony lovin' cowgirl in your neck of the woods....
well then, this first party is for you!

i have a pony lovin' girl indeed and she just turned 6!
so, i hopped on the web and found so much fun inspiration here and here.

as the cowgirls started to arrive, 
they each had a menu to fill out at their place setting for lunch.
we had ham and cheese sandwiches on the grill
and pb&j or pb&honey.

i had a cute little niece (mackenzie) that delivered 
the box lunches to the girls.
(i got the lunch boxes here.)

i found these darling mason sippers and pink and white paper straws from gygi's.
[p.s. get 10% off your order at gygi by using eighteen25 at checkout!!]

i have to admit, i had a lot of fun gathering ideas and putting my sister's to work.
one of my favorites were the stick ponies.
i stuffed them ahead of time and did all of the pre-cutting and button making.
all the girls had to do was pick their pieces and put them together.

i wanted the girls to have their own badge
so, i called the famous andrea from galactytes.
she whipped up the cutest cowgirl badges and had them to me the next day!!
they matched my invitations perfectly...she did a great job!

after lunch it was time for dessert!
we had mini ice cream sundaes 
and the cutest pony party birthday cake stick i have ever seen!
we are talkin'....
rice krispie treat, mini strawberry cupcake, mini powdered donut,
mini chocolate cupcake and another rice krispie treat.
so fun (and yummy too)!

and because the party just wouldn't be complete 
without getting some photo booth photos of these beauties...
(here are just a few that i was able to grab).


a rootin' tootin' time was had by all!!  :)
be sure to stop by tomorrow to see another fun party theme!

    Jodie :)

  10. Love this party. So pretty!

  11. It all came together so fabulously!!! Lovin that treat ka-bob! The soft colors are also so very lovely.

  12. A Hawaiian theme is always easy to pull off and little girls love it. Lots of ideas on Family Fun. Also a "mini" party is fun. Small sizes of everything: baby carrots, use dixie cups, etc. Another craze right now is fairy gardens. For a little girl who loves fairies, it would be easy to pull off a fairy party and maybe create a little fairy habitat for them to take home. My DIL just threw a "pony party" for my obsessed granddaughter - based on "My Little Pony" characters. Lexi danced around for two hours with her wings on her back and a "cutie mark" on her hip. Of course, she's three so...

  13. So fun! I love the cowgirl theme and the great details. The sticks of delicious mini goodies are the best! Thanks for sharing your inspiration!
    P.S. Your girls are the cutest!

  14. Thank you, Jodie!!!
    Your party turned out DARLING!
