If you have girls, I’m betting they went through a pretty serious My Little Pony phase. Mine did. I can’t tell you how many times I untangled pony manes that my two had “styled.” Kathy of Tickled Peach Studio just hosted a 4th birthday party for her little girl and there was no doubt that the theme had to be My Little Pony.
The party decor was a rainbow theme of pink, purple, orange, yellow, and aqua. Using colored cardstock, Kathy cut out triangle buntings to hang around our party spaces. Colorful balloons were blown up and placed at the end of each bunting. Kathy used a small craft punch to create confetti from the remaining cardstock scraps for the party tables. And wise momma that she is, Kathy also used her growing supply of ponies to decorate. Of course, Kathy designed her own printables.
The party started with the guests heading upstairs to Rarity’s Carousel Boutique! Using temporary tattoo paper and her inkjet printer, Kathy printed and cut out cutie mark tattoos. The girls did their nails at Rainbow Dash’s Hoof Decorating Parlor and then got to play with dress-ups. Kathy didn’t forget the boys: they got to play with trains and Legos! As a fun little bonus, Kathy hid some of Rarity’s jewels (or ring pops) around the room so as the kids were playing they each got to find one.
The party continued in the garage. Kathy covered the walls to transform their garage in to Sugar Cube Corner! Using wood they had lying around, Kathy’s husband created a small table for the kids. At the table, the guests decorated Unicorn Horns (party hats) with stickers and jewels.
The hit of the party was the cutie mark bean bag toss game! Kathy’s husband constructed a cornhole board and painted it. The bean bags were handmade by Kathy’s mother-in-law with the help of the birthday girl. Before the desserts, everyone played pin the cutie mark on Pinkie Pie!
