This party was waaaaay back in October 2014.
But I'm still going to share it here, and lucky you-
I have some FREE printables to go with it!
Seeing as Kinsey will be 7 in just under a week (!!!) I need to get all caught up on birthday recaps, and after this I plan to share a quick post about her 5th birthday- which was a Lalaloopsy theme.
Better late than never, right?
Invites available here
|Rainbow streamers taped to the curtain rod + homemade cupcakes on cake stands = dessert table|
For parties lately I've been trying to simplify. Maybe I've wised up to the fact that more time + more money doesn't always = more fun for the birthday kiddo? Maybe I've given up trying to throw perfect parties when all the girls want is fun with their friends? Maybe it just has everything to do with the fact that the last few parties have been planned with a little baby in the house?
Doesn't really matter, as long as I keep my sanity!
|Star tip piping + MLP rings (found at walmart party aisle)|
|Toppers available in my Etsy shop|
I made up signs and activites to go with each of the most popular ponies.
I've attached 3 signs for FREE here!
"Pinkie Pie's Party Favors"
I failed to take any pictures of the book mark activity!
But basically I cut some colored cardstock into bookmark sizes, set out stencils, markers, stickers and washi tape and let the kids make fun bookmarks.

Treat Bag Topper available in my Etsy Shop!
|"Rarity's Hoof Painting & Cutie Marks" Nail polish (peel off kind) nail tattoos |
and MLP Temporary Tattoos for 'cutie marks'
This was the first activity the girls did- and the two boys got TMNT tattoos ;)
|Simple rainbow decorations +MLP party supplies|
The girls wore their MLP shirts, too.
We played - pin the tail on the pony.
(the game only came with 8 tails)
Bonus- the girls were able to pin up this poster to decorate their room afterwards since it wasn't full of tail stickers!
Time to sing "Happy Birthday"
It was a fun time celebrating Kinsey turning 6! I'm in the middle of planning her 7th birthday party right now- alhtough we are keeping it suuuuper simple this year ( at her request!) Any guesses on her theme of choice? Or how long it will take me to blog about it?
