Avery’s 4th birthday party!

I LOVED decorating and planning Avery’s birthday party this year! I love doing her parties every year but this year was the best so far! Avery is really into My Little Ponies right now and her favorite character is Rainbow Dash. So naturally she wanted a Rainbow Dash party. Whatever character she’s into that year is usually what her party is going to be. (2nd birthday was Bubble Guppies and 3rd birthday was a combination of Doc McStuffins and Phineas and Ferb). I got super excited with the thought of a rainbow party and adding in all the My Little Ponies! Whenever I plan her parties I usually start looking at Pinterest a few months before and go from there. I actually would love to start planning parties for other people as a job so after every party I do I take photos of everything to keep in a portfolio. And I decided to write this blog showing all the photos I took of her Rainbow Dash party because they are just too cute! So now here are the photos!


When the guests first walked up to the door they were greeted with a rainbow cloud sign and number 4s. Then to sort of block off the dining room we hung streamers (which backfired because all the kids just wanted to run through them haha). And then in the living room we had Rainbow Dash balloons, a happy birthday balloon sign and we used a few of her stuffed animals to decorate. Then on the gift table we added some coloring pages (that were a big hit!) and cut out My Little Ponies for her school bulletin board.

Now my favorite part! Decorating the food table. I was in love with this backdrop and so was Avery! (We kept it up for a few days afterward!) I think it’s always so fun to think of cute names for all the food. And Avery added a special touch by putting stickers on all the water bottles.


This cake was also soo cute!! Last year I made Avery’s birthday cake but this year I thought it might be easier with a baby always on my hip just to buy it and I was right. I’m very happy with the way it turned out!

For the games we gave all the kids My Little Pony masks and not pictured was a My Little Pony tattoo corner and guess the cutie mark game. For the cutie mark game we would hold up a photo of a cutie mark and then the kids had all the ponies on sticks and they would hold up the right Pony for that cutie mark. Avery loved this game because she was really good at it! And we did a piñata that was really fun! And the last 2 games were pin the tail on Rainbow Dash and toss the apples in Apple Jack’s basket.


And of course gift bags! That concludes her party! This was the best one to date and I can’t wait to see what she’s into next year for her 5th birthday. Actually I can wait because that means she is going to be FIVE! Hope you all enjoyed having a look into Avery’s Rainbow Dash party!
