How To Throw The Perfect Pony Birthday Party {DIY}

Our sister-in-law is a pro at throwing parties. We’ve shared a few here and here. Well, just recently it was our niece Jewell’s 3rd birthday, and she is in love with horses (or for-sees as she calls them ;-)). So of course, Mandy threw the cutest pony themed birthday party.

Here are some of the highlights ::

All the guests (children) got to “adopt a pony” upon arrival. There were also cute name tags matching the decor and invitations which were hung up behind the ponies. {The kids loved these! They were all running around riding their ponies and the parents loved them too as it kept the kids busy :)}

Each guest also got a little pony reading book as a favor. They were so adorable!

Now onto the decor… Mandy ordered all the custom print outs (invitation, name tags, ribbons, banners, signs, etc.) from Etsy. If you have the time and design expertise, you could also make some of these yourself — but it might be worth the extra few bucks!

Food — keep it simple. Mandy simply ordered pizza ahead of time and also had out plenty snacks and goodies, like apple sauce, pretzels, animal crackers, cuties and a beautiful fruit salad. Simple and great for kids!

As for the drinks, Mandy had out a tub of milk boxes and juice boxes for the kids. Next to the kids’ tub was the adorable mini bar area which was also color coordinated with matching decor. Aren’t the flowers beautiful!? And how cute is the blue jug of “adult pony punch”? It was just as delicious as it sounds! {Psst there was also a tub of beers and wine for the adults}DIY Pony Party - Birthday Party - LocalLove805dads - diy pony birthday party - LocalLove805Next came the toys and entertainment for the kids.

Mandy knows how to throw a successful party for all ages – and I’d say that’s quite the talent.
