Every Pony Get Down…

… It’s Lilian’s birthday party!

I’m not ashamed to admit, I was just as into the idea of a My Little Pony party as she was. But she did have some very specific requests.

She wanted cupcakes.

She wanted goldfish crackers in a yellow bowl.

And she wanted music so that she could dance.

(Not pictured, but I’m a card-carrying AV nerd, so you know we had pony music out on the back deck and plenty of dancing.)

I bought some pony decorations on Amazon, and then paper goods in purple (for Twilight Sparkle, duh) and rainbow (for Rainbow Dash, double duh).

Lilian and I made the cupcakes ourselves. I found these awesome wrappers on sale at Michaels. Those, combined with some purple sugar sparkles, and a little bling on top, and you could hardly tell that I’m not so good at frosting things. Especially not when I’m trying to keep a three-year-old from dumping an entire container of purple sparkles out.

We mostly just let the kids run around and have fun together, but I did put out some craft supplies so that people could make magic wands.

(Technically, pony magic involves unicorn horns and not wands, but Lilian is super into magic wands these days, and I’m not that OCD.)

(OMG, I am such a nerd).

We didn’t have as many kids as I was expecting (there were a few no-shows and a couple of illnesses), but that just meant more sparkles for the rest of us. And, hell yeah, lots of adults got into wand-making as well.

The best part of the party, though? Lilian had tons of fun with her cousins (and other little friends). And isn’t that the whole point of getting together in the first place?

(Ok, those purple mason jars were also kinda fun, but the cousins playing was so much better).

I’d say that the birthday girl had a pretty damn good time.
