Pony World

We made the gift bags with the Cricut! I cut out the images from the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge (horse and horse shoes), the grass and the tags from Plantin School Book cartridge. Then Princess wrote each guest's name and glued the cutouts on the bags.

Here is the result:

The gift bags had yellow shred in the bottom to look like hay. We tried to keep to a horse/barnyard theme, and here is what they contained:

When filling the gift bags, I tried to stay away from too much candy. I couldn't resist the Nerd's Rope or the Cow Tails, though!

The kids get to meet the ponies, this one is Rosie!

On to the riding ring. We had half the group go out and half stay in the barn for games. We played Pin the Cutie Mark on Rainbow Dash, Bean Bag toss, played on the rope swing and blew bubbles. Everyone was busy so they didn't mind waiting for their pony ride!

Being the Birthday Girl, Princess was one of the first to ride:

I know you can't tell from her expression, but she was having so much fun!

Cake, ice cream and present time!
Princess wanted a carrot cake, how appropriate for a pony party!

Everyone had a great time!

Adorable! Great job with the gift bags (inside and out!) Looks like a wonderful time. I'm even more determined now to get Nat a horse or pony ride on her birthday.
