A Rainbow Pony Party
I styled and hosted a My Little Pony Party for my daughter’s 6th birthday and it was so much fun! I must admit, I’ve never been a big fan of character birthday parties and all the branded gear that goes with them. So I took the MLP theme but added a huge dose of rainbow decorations and added the occasional branded ballon or napkin.
The decorations were all themed around Rainbow Dash and her rainbow mane. So lots of bright bunting, streamers, 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).
The Party Table
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 from Home Bargains. They were so good as there were no drinks spillages and I can use them again. I finished the look with a few foil balloons.
Rainbow Pony Party Tea
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, a small packet of raisins, and I found some cute cardboard muffin pots to put a few cocktail sausages and sausage rolls.
Sweet Treats and the Cake
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 (I was so busy running around at the party, consequently I didn’t get a photo of that).
As you might already know, I like to make party favours a bit different (without spending a fortune). Befitting of the rainbow theme we gave each party goer a small tin of rainbow paints (from Amazon) and a strip of rainbow laces wrapped in a belly band of pretty paper and a thank you tag.
Craft Parties and DIY Party Kits
Finally, if you’re local to Dorset, you can book a Pony Craft Party with me. If you’re not local or want a small party, I’ve created a beautiful DIY rainbow pony craft kit, perfect for a DIY craft party at home or as a gift for a horse-crazy child.
