Pinwheels & Ponies Party!

Last week my baby girl turned 5!!
I was so distraught that I had to throw her a big 'ol party!
My daughter requested a pony party, so fun!

I searched high and low for the perfect party outfit, and I fell in love!
This beautiful dress is from Ourfox and it is my favorite!!

I decided it would be fun to have red, white and blue
and pinwheels to go along with my current obsession!
We decorated the greenbelt with pom poms, pinwheels,
and balloons in red, white and blue!

I set up a station for all the little cowgirls and cowboys
to drop off their gift and pick up a hat from Oriental Trading!
This adorable stand was created by the super talented

I contacted Happy Hooves and they brought 2 of the sweetest ponies!
The owner and her assistant were great with the kids and led them round and round.
Kelsey declared this was her favorite part!

Our little guests were all so excited for a ride on the ponies!
They lined up to ride over and over again!

Of course any party is all about the food,
and I had fun thinking up favorite treats
in red, white and blue!

The Lofthouse cookies and donuts were a big hit, and I didn't have to make them!
The layered rice krispy treats were totally easy, and always popular! 

My husband cut the watermelon and put a few stars on top for fun!
The strawberry & blueberry cups were popular 
and we liked them with a little whipped cream on top!
There was water and strawberry soda on ice for the little parched pony riders!

After the ponies went home, we played pin the tail on the pony!
I made this cute poster with clip art from Print Candee and printed it at Costco!
Most of the tails were placed on the pony's rump, but a few ended up on the outsides!
The kids thought it was hilarious to see where the next one would go!

While the kids were busy with their game, I got the cupcakes ready!
I ordered these adorable red, white and blue layered cupcakes from Cupcake Friday!
The darling pinwheels on top were made to match perfectly by Earth Cookie Creations!

We all sang happy birthday and cheered as she blew out 5 candles!

As all our little party guests went home, I sent them with a fun bundle...
a pinwheel, glow in the dark bracelets, and popcorn!

We had a blast celebrating our little girl's birthday!
Thanks to all the wonderful folks that made it so special!
