Lil Cowgirl Horsey Party

I helped a friend of mine design a cowgirl horse party for her little girl who was turning 3.  
We went to Hobby Lobby and with a little cowgirl scrapbook kit and some pink bandanas we came up with this precious little party.

I had a package of white paper placemats that we used stickers from the scrapbook kit to decorate them.
Tied the bandanas with some twine and covered the water bottles with strips of paper.

I made these chocolate on chocolate cupcakes and made little white chocolate with pink glitter sprinkles cowgirl hats to go on top.  I simply put some wax paper on top of one of the hat images in the papers we had and traced it with some melted white bark in a plastic tube.  Then I filled them in and sprinkled with pink sugar while before they hardened.  Used milk chocolate to do the detail.  Once hardened in the fridge I place on the top of the frosting.

Used the papers to make lots of pennants.  Strung them together on my sewing machine.

We found a fun foam craft at Hobby Lobby.  We found a boot shape and some adorable cowgirl foam stickers.  Problem was there was only one boot to be found.  So we bought the one boot and some pink foam sheets and used the boot as a template to trace and cut multiple boots.

Favors were miniature plastic horses.  A tube of them was found at Hobby Lobby.  I then took some pink tissue and ran it through a paper shredder.  We stuffed some small cellophane bags with the tissue shreds and a horse.  Paper cut and folded over the top.

Girls having a good time decorating their boots.

We had this party on my deck as it was a gorgeous day of 72F on this particular November day.  
We put my train table full of ponies and Ponyville toys for the girls to enjoy.

The birthday girl and her big sis.

These two friends definitely have love of chocolate in common!!

All the little cowgirls had a great time!
