A horse is horse, of course, of course...

For Paige's 5th Birthday she wanted a HORSE party.  So here is a little recap of the Horse party we came up with. 

The kids watched Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron  {a horse movie}... Paige really likes this movie and it was her idea to have a movie party. We ordered in Pizza and had Popcorn with the movie. I found these cute little Popcorn holders from the fabulous Hobby Lobby stores.
Red Bandana paper bowls from Hobby Lobby
I gathered up all of Paige's horses and used them for decorations along with some Red Bandana tablecloths and towels and a matching quilt for all the kids to sit on while watching the movie.  You can get these great Moda Home items from Home a la mode.
Stick Horses as little giveaways for all her little friends.  (SCORE: a buck each from the Dollar Tree!)
Added a bit of grosgrain ribbon to pretty them up.
To top it all off, I made her a pillow case dress that had an embroidered Horse on it. 

I think I will be making her some more of these for the summer... SUPER EASY and QUICK to make.  Thanks to Craft Challenge: Dozens of Ways to Repurpose a Pillowcase book.
Everyone seemed to have a blast.... especially this big girl.


  1. Wow! What a great party and that is a GREAT deal on those stick ponies. Love the pillowcase dress too. Great job on the party!

  2. What FUN! I love the stick horses!
    WOW-- great find at The Dollar Store! My daughter loves horses, she would LOVE your party! I also love the pillowcase dress!

    Happy Birthday!

  4. What a great party! I love all the deals you found too. Your daughter is adorable and I hope she had a great birthday!

  6. I have seen some of those pillow case dresses, but none on a more beautiful little girl! She is so pretty!!!!! Cute dress too!

  7. Paige is lucky to have such a special mom. Mom is lucky to have such a special daughter. And so it goes! What a darling party idea and you made it even better. Loads of horsing around!
