I recently styled and hosted a My Little Pony Party for my daughter’s 6th birthday and it was so much fun!
The decorations were all themed around Rainbow Dash and her rainbow mane, so lots of bright bunting, tissue paper pom-pom clouds, and table confetti were the order of the day. I was particularly pleased with the rainbow we created with the simple use of crepe streamers (although it did put my brother through slight trauma trying to get it all even to fit the gap).
I decorated the party table with a plain white table cloth and sprinkled large tissue paper circle confetti down the middle. I used rainbow and My Little Pony napkins and found these awesome plastic bottles with straws. They were so good as there were no drinks spillages and I can use them again. I then finished the look with a few foil balloons.
For the party tea I used cardboard lunchboxes from Party Delights and they were so effective! They saved a lot of time and there was a lot less wastage. Inside I put 2 finger sandwiches, a yoghurt tube, small packet of rasins, and I found some cute cardboard muffin pots to put a few cocktail sausages and sausage rolls.
Dessert was a selection of small cakes, some great rainbow cupcakes and these brilliant rice crispie cakes lollies that I found on the Capture By Lucy blog. My daughter absolutely loved making them for her friends.
The birthday cake was made by a good friend and inside there were layers of rainbow sponge (sadly I didn’t get a photo of that).
As you might already know, I like to make party favours a bit different (without spending fortune). Befitting of the rainbow theme we gave each party goer a small tin of rainbow paints and a strip of rainbow laces wrapped in a belly band of pretty paper and a thank you tag.
I had a ball planning and designing this party and the birthday girl had such fun! I’ll be back soon with another blog about the party activities and the dress.
Friendship is magic … (as the My Little Pony motto goes!).
