My Little Pony Rainbow Party Details:
This is what Emily said about planning the party- “What’s more fun than rainbows? How about rainbows, unicorns, and magical ponies? For Lexi’s 4th birthday, she wanted to celebrate all things My Little Pony. Her mom and I decided to use rainbow colors as a jumping-off point, with MLP-themed activities and treats for the kids.
The rainbow backdrop is just lengths of simple crepe paper streamers. I taped them down at the bottom because we were outside and I didn’t want them blowing around into the food, but for an inside party, you could leave them loose. At the top of the “rainbow,” I placed tissue paper pom pom clouds and rainbow colored honeycomb balls.
For treats, we had Apple Jack’s farm fresh fruit, Fluttershy’s bunny snacks (veggie cups), Rainbow Dash’s Cloudsdale sandwiches (PB&J in cloud shapes!), Twilight Sparkle’s Friendship is Magic cookies (sugar cookies iced with “cutie mark” designs), and Pinkie Pie’s balloon cake pops. Lexi’s mom scattered mini MLP figurines from “blind bags” around the table for extra decoration.
To quench the August thirst, we offered “Rarity’s Dazzling Lemonade” and water for the kids, some beer for any adults who wanted it. We dressed up the table with a rainbow tassel garland and some rainbow-colored poms hanging in the trees. Ice pops are a must for August outdoor birthdays.
We kept the activities pretty simple, as it was a hot day, and the kids preferred to splash around in the pool for most of the party. I turned a slip-n-slide into a “Wonderbolt Academy Obstacle Course” with some pool noodles bent into rainbows. I tied strips of vinyl tablecloth to each archway for a little added fun. We had some pegasus wings up for grabs, and a decorate-your-own-unicorn-horn station–made with paper cones with ribbons woven through them, and some stick-on jewels to choose from.
I made a Pin the Cutie Mark on the Pony game by painting a mark-less pony on a big sheet of drawing paper and taping it to a magnetic dry erase board. Then I used my button maker (which also makes magnets) to make some Cutie Mark magnets. The kiddos had fun trying to pin them.”
