I have to say, I kind of lived through Avery on this party, because I absolutely LOVED My Little Pony when I was younger, and I was so overjoyed when it made a comeback and Avery became obsessed with it! Similarly, she also loved just unicorns and carousels so we did add some of these elements to the party. Here’s how it turned out:
It was such a fun party to plan because all the colorful elements. I love Rainbow Dash, but we did not make this party the typical rainbow color because Avery’s favorite pony was Twilight Sparkle! I wanted to make the party magical for her!
Here’s the invitation we decided on, with an emphasis on Twilight Sparkle :
I first started to collect items that inspired me from this invite. Then off to crafting we went. I ordered the Twilight sparkle die cuts from etsy.com. Those little balls on the top of the straws that I hot glued on were actually food picks I found at Target! We later used this for cupcake toppers which I will share later.
I also made the buffet labels myself with glittery card stock and colorful paper from Michaels.
I found these perfect favor boxes from http://tomkatstudio.com I then made the personalized tags and clipped them with that cute mini clothespin, also from Michaels.
Along with various My Little Pony toys and candy, Avery and I made these candy kebobs and included them in the favor bags:
What My Little Pony party without a unicorn horn? I scoured the internet for tutorials, and I just kind of took bits and pieces of them and used what I had.
I purchased plain white headbands, and made these with felt, gold thread, and batting. Super fun and easy!
Desserts were super fun to make! It was my first time making character cookies, but I was determined to make all her favorite characters.
I also incorporated the “cutie marks” and piped them on chocolate covered oreos:
Her favorite My Little Pony characters were incorporated in dessert form. Here is an ode to Pinky Pie:
Fluttershy was made into a cake pop:
And here is how I used the carousel craft I showed earlier:
I filled the rest of the table with coordinating candy- so colorful and fun!
This cake was ordered and was before I dove into making cakes, but I loved how she incorporated the carousel element on here:
Of course for entertainment, we had to get a pony for pony rides! This local company I used was super accommodating and made the pony as “My Little Pony” as can be, from the spray painted pony tail, to the cutie mark, they really went above and beyond. I will forever cherish this picture of my princess:
And I absolutely LOVE this picture of her and her baby brother! Needless to say, the pony was a hit!
I did not get a picture of our italian ice vendor, but you can see a couple of the guests enjoying the treat in the 90 degree weather!
Piñatas have been a tradition at my kids’ parties, and this party was no different!
After the pony rides and a few hits at the piñata, we ended the day with cake and presents of course!
Avery’s My Little Pony party was especially fun to style! I can not believe this was 3 years ago! The hard part was narrowing down what things to include in the party, but let’s be honest, I’ve never been good at “narrowing down”. Hehe
