This past year my daughter, Ava, has become a huge fan of My Little Pony. Almost a year ago she planned what kind of party she wanted for her 5th birthday....My Little Pony of course and so I went to work planning the perfect party!
When brainstorming the aesthetic of the party, I knew I didn't want the traditional My Little Pony party....it was just a little too colorful. I knew I wanted to limit the overall color palette so that the ponies would stand out a little more. So I decided on a shabby chic style party mixed with My Little Pony and the results couldn't have made me more happy....and Ava was even happier!
I always love using the age as a feature to the table. This year she turned 5, so I used number five cookie cutters. I also wanted to represent the main ponies in the sweets I served, so for the cookies I represented Rainbow Dash. Since she is as colorful as a rainbow, I used flowers to symbolize the rainbow. For my cupcakes, I represented, Fluttershy, whose cutie mark is a pink butterfly. (If you are wondering what a cutie mark is, let me fill you in....it is a picture-like symbol located on the pony's flank or haunch that is related to the pony's personality or talent).
Each child needed to have their own bag to fill up with all of the goodies and the candy they would take from the piñata. I used plain old kraft bags and adorned them with pretty pink doilies and printables from the collection I designed. Simple but pretty!
