Aaaaand it’s over. Henry has officially turned 3 and we have a whole ‘nother year until his next birthday party. But until then, we can enjoy pictures of our epic My Little Pony Brony party. πŸ˜‰

Our parties are all about the food. If my party platters aren’t overflowing with awesome dishes, something’s not right. We did our job this time!

We did have one minor disaster with the avocados not being ripe enough, so the guacamole didn’t make it’s planned appearance.

I had also planned on having little table tents by each food with pony clip-art and food names on them, but it just didn’t happen. Hence the random Applejack Apple Crisp that probably had people scratching their heads….

The second food disaster of the morning was when I stacked the Rainbow Dash Rice Krispie Treats (half Rice Krispies, half Fruity Pebbles) and they melted into one giant mountain of krispie deliciousness. I had to pull the squares off the mountain and reform them like they were hamburger patties. Do NOT stack your treats on a hot day. πŸ˜‰

Costco is the perfect place to get fruity for a giant fruit rainbow platter.

The ceiling was covered in MLP swirls and lanterns from the Paper Lantern Store (super cheap!).

Our drink station included apple juice, pink lemonade, ice tea and water. I also grabbed a few $1 packs of twisty straws from Micheals, but I was surprised that no one used them. They are now in my prize box at school! πŸ˜‰

The banner on the mantle is hand made-I simply used digital glitter paper from TeachersPayTeachers.com for the pennants and cut out pictures of the ponies to put on top of them.

I used puffy glue dots to make the pictures raise off the triangle pennants.

We had some extra frames, so I filled them with pony pictures from Google Images.

These frames live in our entry way, and the thought is that I change out the two frames each holiday. The reality is that there were still Thanksgiving pictures in them when I went to put these ponies under the glass. Doh!

One of the favors for the kiddos was a pony tail. I made these by wrapping entire spools of yard around a piece of long cardboard, cutting it along one of the ends and grabbing bunches to make into tails. Each kiddo got to pick which tail/pony they wanted.

The other favor each kiddo got was a MLP necklace. Many chose the same pony as their tail, but some mixed it up. πŸ˜‰

My mom and I made these by drilling very small holes in tiny ponies from AmazonΒ and screwing in eyelet hooks. We then grabbed a spool of chain from Micheals and cut the length for toddler necks. You could also use pre-cut ball chain necklaces from Amazon. I made a bunch of extra because I didn’t want kiddos fighting over specific ponies, so I now I also have a bag of pony tails and necklaces in my prize box. πŸ˜‰

Lastly, the cake it’s self was made by a good friend who makes AMAZING cake. She adds a whole lot of pudding, sour cream and love, and everyone just raves. We had about 30 people over, and this entire thing save 2 pieces was gone by the end of the party! I made the decorations by cutting out pony clip art and attaching them to Popsicle sticks. The stars are taped to pipe cleaners that were wrapped around a pencil.

The entire party was a huge success, but now it’s time to take down the decorations and focus on back to school. Only 2 more weeks until the students come-EEEK!
