My Little Pony Party!!
May is one of my favorite months because I get to plan parties for kids I love with my sister and my crafty partner-in-crime, Melinda. Last weekend was my niece’s 4th birthday, 4!…I may cry. My sister and I spent the last couple of months planning a My Little Pony party for her and it was so much fun.
My sister had her heart set on a rainbow party this year but at 4 years old my niece has her own ideas now, so a My Little Pony party is what we ended up with. I loved it! Warning: this post is all about pictures. I hope you enjoy them 🙂

I think my favorite thing was the cakes. They turned out so perfect and were a huge hit. We used the petal frosting technique, alternating between the rainbow colors. On top of the cake we used the White Cloud Icing from Bless this Mess to give the look of a big cloud. The ponies are toys. The banner was made with striped straws, twine, glitter scrapbook paper and letter stickers. The cake didn’t only look good! My sister and her friend (the other birthday girl’s mom) made strawberry cake with real strawberries. It was delicious!
The cupcakes were rainbow inside and the pony toppers were just miniature My Little Pony toys . The cupcake toppers were made by layering cupcake topper cut-outs from K&S Printables on solid and polka dot scrapbook paper. Tip: Want really white buttercream frosting? Use white food gel…it really makes a difference!
We filled the food tables with all sorts of yummy rainbows. Those balls in the bottom right hand corner are brownie bites dipped in chocolate melts. Delicious! All of the food had matching food labels also made by K&S Printables.
OK, I lied before, THESE may be my favorite project we did for the party. Each of the ponies are about 5 inches tall. They are double-sided with a toothpick in the middle. The fences were something we found at Target this Easter. We painted them white, put some styrofoam in the bottom, covered it with green Easter grass. Then all we had to do was stick the pony on it’s toothpick into the styrofoam and ta-da! Adorable centerpieces.
As an activity for the kids we made a Cutie Mark booth. For those of you who might not be My Little Pony experts, a cutie mark is the little symbol on each pony. We offered face-painting for the kids who wanted their own cutie mark :). The fence is made out of balsa wood my sister found at Michaels. It was the perfect height and she just used a box cutter to trim off the top edges to make it look like a fence, painted everything white and glued it together. She made the banner out of twine and scrapbook paper. I thought it turned out amazing.
Last but not least were the favors. Chocolate-covered Oreos dipped in rainbow sprinkles. Cute and tasty. We used a wooden crate with a piece of styrofoam glued to the bottom to display the favors. All we did was cover the foam with some Easter grass and stuck the pops into it. Perfect!
It was a beautiful day and the kids had so much fun…I’m not sure you could ask for a more successful party :).
Eeeee! The icing looks AMAZING on the cake and cupcakes! I just love it. And I better not show this party to my daughter… she’s LOVE IT! Great job girl and thanks for the shout-out!
Thank you! I know way too much about My Little Ponies now, lol. Thanks for the great frosting recipe!
Wow! So much thought and work was put into this party. My daughter’s Birthday Party was last weekend; what a shame that I did not have the advantage of seeing this post before. She loves My Little Pony. We might have to have a party for no reason at all to use some of these ideas.
I particularly liked the rainbow fruit kabobs!
Great work and great blog. Thank you for sharing your ideas.
Does anyone really need a reason to have a My Little Pony party? LOL
What a adorable party! Pinned! Thanks for being part of our party. I hope you will stop by on Monday at 7 pm and party with us! We love having you. http://loulougirls.blogspot.com/
Happy Saturday! Lou Lou Girls
This is so cute Kat–love all the detail. And the frosting–wow! I picked this as one of my features for the Do Tell Tuesday party ’cause I’m a new co-host! Stop by to grab a feature if you want, and again, fantastic party!
Thanks so much! It was such a fun party to do. Can’t wait to see what everyone else shares this week 🙂
This is so cute! I love all the rainbow stuff. I actually had a My Little Pony Party for my 6th birthday. My mom even still has the pin the tale on the My Little Pony game we played!
Thank you! I loved My little ponies when I was a kid…they are so different now (but really still the same). I love that my niece is so into them.
Pinkie Pie would be left green with envy at your pony party planning proficiency. 🙂
Seriously, your artistry, creativity, fun factor, and attention to detail, plus the sheer amount of luscious-looking sweets, great decorations, and MLP-themed activities is just amazing.
I’m 45, a brony to the core, and I’d be utterly delighted to have a shindig for my b-day even half as fantastic as this.
Give yourself and your helpers a big round of applause; you all went above and beyond to make a truly special, memorable pony party.
Thanks Sean! That means even more coming from a fan :). We had so much fun creating the party and seeing the kids enjoy themselves. Can’t wait to see what my niece requests next year!
Thanks Brittany, it was such a fun party to do. Especially since I remember how much I loved My Little Ponies when I was a kid.
Did you have a professional do the cutie marks?
Thanks! No I did the cutie marks. We just did simple designs like rainbows, suns, stars and we bought the facepaint at a local party store.
