It's a "Rock what you got" approach!
I spent less than $15 and ended up with most of the treats left over!
(curse you $9 bag of peanut butter cups and kit kats!)
You could make tissue paper or tulle pom-poms or
blow up balloons...even these giant paper flowers!
Luckily, we had saved all of that stuff from our Princess Party
last year...so we used them again!
When doing a themed party,
look at what you already have that you can use for decorations.
If I had the pony bed spread, I would have pinned that to the wall! :)
I just went with a box cake mix...made 2 dozen cupcakes.
We already had cupcake liners and candles...goodie boxes too!
(here's where hoarding pays off)
We made some custom My Little Pony blind bags
Silicone Molds a few months back.
And decided to test them out with chocolate!
We melted a bunch of milk chocolate and filled our little squeeze bottle.
I patted them down to make sure there wasn't air bubbles...
And she did the 4 we have.
After chilling in the fridge for a while,
I was able to get the chocolate out of the silicone mold.
But the chocolate melts fast when it's touched.
Next time I'd use a semi sweet or dark chocolate.
Big MacIntosh and fluttershy didn't survive the process
but they were tasty!
And a darling My Little Pony Chalkboard by my daughter
with a Spongebob looking sun...thanks to the 10 year old son.
We decorated every shelf we had with ponies!
We played a game that the girls had to guess how many
pony figures there were in the room.
We used the buttons we made and some scrapbook
triangles to make a banner for the mantle.
And a couple treats from the dollar store and 3 best friends...
and we had ourselves a great party!
Oh yeah...there were 140 PONIES!!!
Linking up to THESE parties this week!
