I have the big double birthday bash to share with you!
My kiddos' birthdays are exactly three weeks apart.
I reallllly didn't want to have to throw two parties in three weeks, so I began trying to figure out a way to incorporate Lucy's infatuation with My Little Pony, with a little boy's first birthday!
The answer was My Little Pony, Down on the Farm!
I found these invitations on Etsy shop TweetPrints ...
(After I just about fell over out of disbelief that such a thing existed! -- This was JUST what I had pictured!)
The party turned out great! (for an overwhelmed, working mom who had been dealing with a croupy baby all week, and was about ready to fall over from lack of sleep!)
Here's the birthday girl at the cake table . . .
And no, I did not make it.
But fortunately, we have a VERY talented niece who makes cakes like this (you have seen them here before for Lucy's previous birthdays: )~
This was Lucy's dream cake, for sure!
And even though it was covered in My Little Ponies, it's still not too girly for Max. ;-)
The cupcakes were equally adorable!
I wrote a cute birthday message on my trusty old-window-turned-chalkboard, and made a simple banner out of rainbow colored card stock, die cut letters, and ribbon.
(Rainbow Dash is Lucy's VERY FAVORITE My Little Pony, hence the rainbow color scheme. ;-)
I also made a super-cute torn fabric banner, which I LOVE!
Such an easy project, but SOOOOOO CUTE and whimsical! :-)
Here's the menu board . . .
Applejack is another of Lucy's favorite ponies, so I had a big bowl of apple slices with caramel and peanut butter dippers for the kids . . . and applesauce pouches for the itty-bitties. ;-)
I'll do a little DIY post on this in the near future (I hope), but it was simple to do, and the kids loved it! (And of course, we will have this to enjoy for years to come, as well!)
Lucy even painted great-grandma's "hooves" . . . :-)
Each of the cowgirls and cowboys got a colorful bandana when they arrived.
(The four babies in attendance got plush little farm animal puppets.)
Lucy had a GREAT time . . . and I think the only downer was Max being sick with the croup and having to spend the day with Nana instead of being at his own party! : /
Luckily, I don't think he knows or cares. : )~
(Next year could be a different story!)
I'm missing quite a few of the cute details from the party, but I have the HARDEST time remembering to take pictures of everything whilst in tine midst of a party! I need to give someone else the job of taking pictures next time!
(Assuming there'll be a next time . . . someone just remind me to hire someone ELSE to do all the work next year - haha! : )~
Thanks for checking out our party!
