Horses & Hairbows


I love themed partys im smitten on all things matchy matchy. Last year when searching for inspration for my daughters 4th birthday i came across a horse party and a bow party and she loves both horses and hairbows a bombastic amount.

That year she was going through a phase where she also worshiped her pony. So i combined the two and birthed a Horses & Hairbows party.

All pictures will be at bottom of post i like to see to be inspired.

Activities :
Hairbow making station
Horse shoe toss
Pony rides
Corn hole

For the hairbow making station i simply bought a large pack of pony tail holders and provided a huge amount of differnt kinds of ribbon to be tied on to holder and the finished product resulted in a cute bow that the guest could take home.

I have a metal horse shoe tree i bought from LTD that i put the shabby hairbows on they had alligator clips on them and the guest also got to take one home.

The glass bottle drinks were just NEHI i bought at walmart and hot glued mini hats on when it was time to drink they came off easily and then hot glued a doily around it and tied a burlap ribbon.

I also made a ribbon award board see picture. I made this all with a glue gun and cute cupcake liners bought off ebay. Then attached ribbons and i also placed different objects in the middle to dress it up like gems, stones, buttons etc…

My large H is what inspired my Horses and hairbows sign i bought that large H at a yardsale it was only Styrofoam and fake flowers pressed in. The other my husband made for me from old boards and a lead rope.

The polka dot favor bags had a pony sticker on top that read thanks for coming love Ca’Rin inside was a skinny ribbon necklace with a horse charm attached.

The pony painting was done by my inlaws and was 100% perfect for the party i placed it behind the cake table and also used as a photo prop.

The cake was amazing and tied my theam togther it was made by a local lady in my tiny town in Georgia.

What you cant see as good in pictures is i also decorated with rattan windows, boots and saddles through out the party.






Please let me know if i left out any details or you have questions. This party was definitely a hit with the kids and adults.

    Great ideas! We did a horse-themed party for my New Jersey cowgirl when she turned 4 last year, and those drink bottles would have been a perfect fit! What wonderful ideas.
