Customer Party – Vintage Pony Birthday Party


We had the pleasure of working with Gretchen of Three Little Monkeys Studio on a recent party and thought our tassel garland was a perfect fit.

Gretchen recently threw her daughter, Reese, a vintage pony party for her 6th birthday.  Here are some of the details as told by Gretchen:

Reese’s new favorite color is pink. It’s always been purple. It kind of broke my heart a little bit when she announced that, since purple has been her favorite color since she could talk. (Why do they have to grow up so fast?!?) So pink it is. With ponies.  For decorations, my goal was to NOT have a western or cowgirl feel. My daughter takes English riding lessons and wants to be a show jumper when she grows up, so I made a bunch of horse show ribbons out of pink and purple scrapbook paper and ribbon. I framed the photo of her in her riding helmet and placed two of them around the party with some of her favorite Safari Ltd. horse figures. She is also a girly girl, so I filled vintage blue mason jars with pink sweetheart roses from Costco and hot glued pink pom ribbon to the jars. The tablecloth is actually a vintage blanket, but I loved the shade of pink and the texture with the pink ruffle fabric I used as a backdrop. It all came together beautifully.

My beloved Brittany of Edible Details for the amazing fondant horse cake topper and cupcake toppers and Krista of Cookies With Character for some rockstar horse cookies. Both ladies are so talented and put so much effort and detail into their work.  We served a gorgeous ribbon funfetti cake baked by Pam of Sugar and Spice Bakery. To keep costs down and save some time, I also served some grocery store treats but jazzed them up. Oreo Double Stuff Cakesters became gorgeous whoopie pies when rolled in white sugar pearl sprinkles (available from Wal-Mart). I took ordinary strawberry marshmallows and turned them into marshmallow lollipops by dipping them in melted almond bark and then in pink sugar pearl sprinkles . I also made root beer float marshmallows from Shauna Sever’s Marshmallow Madness. I cut them out in the shape of ponies for extra fun.
