Oh - and she got brand new front teeth for her Birthday!
She also got a Pony Party. Yes, I know that Isaid I was going to do a Bee party. Unfortunately, HRH really didn't give a sh*t about what I wanted to do. One of us needs to realize who these parties are REALLY about. Anyway, she won.
The invites were done by Emily of Let's Geaux Party (of course!) - and were cards with balloons tied to them. I can't get the pics to upload right now, so you will just have to settle for an inflated balloon.
HRH loves, loves, loves My Little Ponies. The mischevious Rainbow Dash is her favorite. I was at a loss on how to decorate a 'pony party' tastefully, so I decided to focus on Rainbow Dash.
I kept it pretty simple on the sweets table. I just separated out skittles by color and threw them into candy jars. Unsanitary, but gets the rainbow across.
For the backdrop - t is just foam wrapped in a teal plastic tablecloth. Then I cut foam out in shape of clouds to add some depth.
How amazing is that cake? BE loves carousels, and I believe ponies and carousels go hand in hand. Aly B's bakery whipped up exactly what I wanted for the cake, and the horseshoe cookies.
Here is a closer look:
For the playroom, I took every color of sparkle mesh I could find and draped, draped, draped. The goal was to make the playroom look like a carousel. I think it came across.
The Hubby made the little tables with basic supplies from lowes. Then I had him drill hole in center so I could put the 1 1/4" PVC pipe through it. I steadied the pvc pipe by using Christmas Tree stands I found at Big Lots. Then just wrapped with ribbon.
Not sure why I didn't take pictures of the crafts - but they each got a gable box "stable" with a sparkly pony inside to decorate. Glitter, stickers, markers, crayons, letters - whatever their little sugar hearts desired.
Then I surprised HRH with real ponies. This is Pinkie Pie, but Rainbow Dash was there too. She flipped.
You can't see it, but the ponies were actually painted sparkly, too. Such a great surprise - the kids all loved it.
And Finally - HRH blowing out the candles. I love that kid.
