The horse cakes were made with the horse pans from IKEA--$6.99 The castle cake is a rectagle pan, cut and layered with the plastic castle on top. The castle was found at Ross for $7. It is a cute playset.

Princess Pony Party

I have a soon to be 5 yr old daughter whose passion is horses. She also has recently become enamored by princesses. When I asked her what kind of party she wanted this year her answer was " a princess pony party, of course!".

I'm renting a room locally to have this party. This cuts down on the stress of having it my own home. I don't have to clean the house prior to the party nor do I have to clean up after! I also don't feel the need to have 15 little princesses romping through my home. Room rentals range from $25-$60 an hour depending on your needs.

Simplicity was the key to the invitations I designed. I just bought some inexpensive pink card stock, used ribbon I already had and added a pony sticker to seal the envelope. The wording also plays into the theme. "The Kingdom of Ponies, Cordially invites you to a royal ball to celebrate Princess Natalia's 5th birthday"

Who is the Birthday Fairy?

The Birthday Fairy is the brain child of two fun, busy moms that love their children and love birthdays! We've loved planning and organizing these crazy themed parties as much as we love the looks on our children's faces (seven between us) for eight years.

I am currently planning a Princess Pony 5th birthday party. I'll post my process along the way. We will also be back blogging about the previous themed parties we have designed. It should be a exciting road. Please stick with us for a great ride!
