Ava just turned 5. (Insert obligatory mommy freakout of “Where did the last 5 years go?”statement here.) She has been WAY into My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic for well over 6 months. If you have a 4 year old girl, you might want to jump on this train. It’s actually a pretty amazing show. I love the message of friendship and all that entails: honesty, charity, and forgiveness. So Ava wanted a My Little Pony Birthday Party, and that’s what she got! Check out all the fun things we did, and the things I made THEN stay tuned throughout the week for tutorials on each, cuz you know I love you. (FYI some links maybe be affiliate, cuz I know you love me.)
We also had super cute MLP items that I bought… cuz mama can’t make everything. Am I right? Here’s some other cuteness:
It was a great day. Gluten Free Cupcakes, kids running everywhere + making a huge mess. Toys, games, rings, temporary tattoos, masks. Pony EVERYTHING. Hasbro even sent over a special gift from Princess Celestia herself. Totally the highlight of Ava’s life right there.
It was a blessing to have a home large enough to hold all those people (large + small) and to be together having a great time. If you are wondering why there are no photos of the actual party, it is because I consciously chose not to take photos of the party itself. I wanted to be present with my daughter, family, + friends. I did all this work because I wanted my little one to have a memorable birthday, but I know that if I were MIA the whole day taking photos or staging photos… that is what she would remember. Her feeling loved and celebrated was the point of the day and having Mommy missing would not accomplish that goal. So, I sacrificed a few blog photos in order to give her the love and attention she deserved on her special day.
