PARTY DETAILS as told by Michelle

It was no contest what Cami wanted her party theme to be this year — a Rainbow Dash My Little Pony party! It all started with the invitation I designed: bright, traditional Rainbow Dash colors along with some glittery gold accents.

The first thing I ordered for her party was the ‘Happy Birthday Cami’ banner seen on the wall behind the dessert table by the talented Piggy Bank Parties. In the dining room, I used festive wrapping paper to cover up the frames on the wall. Such a cheap and easy decorating staple. A last minute addition were the mini banners draped on each frame. The “Elements of Harmony” are six supernatural artifacts representing subjective aspects of harmony — one for each of the six main ponies. Rainbow Dash is loyalty, for example. Cami’s adorable (and comfy) dress came from Palm Tree Princess on etsy.

I made the festive heart banner using gold doilies from Shop Sweet Lulu. I bought glitter card stock from Hobby Lobby and cut out small hearts to place in the center, punched some holes, strung some ribbon and voila! The prettiest little heart banner you ever did see! ;) Dina from Deliciously Darling knocked it out of the park with her gorgeous paper flower wreath and the cloud/heart rain drop decorations. Kristi of Threading Marigolds 2 on etsy made the rainbow fabric pom poms I pinned to the front of the dessert table. They were perfect and I just loved her idea of using gold ribbon :)

I decorated my two side windows using colorful tissue fringe garland from Petite Party Studio. Cami and I also made the rainbow wands using rainbow printables from Love the Day. While we were at Party City ordering her balloons, I saw the rainbow chocolate coins seen in the glass container and couldn’t pass them up. I made the glittery gold number five and added some ribbon and a heart because it just needed something! :) My hubby, Ryan, made the wooden Cami “five” sign. The Hip Hip Hooray sign displayed on the back of the dessert table was just perfect from Jenny of Evie Ivy. She also made the rainbow “Camryn” sign just for Cami and it was such a wonderful surprise!

Let’s talk about the sweets. Sandy from Firefly Confections made the beautiful rainbow cookies. The cupcakes are one of my favorites because they are just so pretty with rainbow fondant toppers by the amazing Brittany of Edible Details and glittery paper rainbow toppers from Kristy of The Purple Pug. Little masterpieces I tell ya. My sister made the rainbow jello cups — which was her first and last time — ha! They turned out so great but were very time consuming.

My friend Ann made the adorable mini rainbow heart cookies that we wrapped up so everyone could take home. Paige from Polka Dot Bakery made the delicious rainbow cake and cake pops. I am pretty much obsessed with the glittery floral cake topper I bought from Paper Treats on etsy. The cake pops were so cute with the rainbow heart skewers and gold sprinkles!

I bought the cute rainbow plastic milk bottles from The TomKat Studio and filled with bubbles for simple favors. We added some My Little Pony stickers on the lids and some ribbon and gold hearts around the front. I hired a face painter, who was fantastic and the kiddos enjoyed, we played pin the cutie mark on Pinkie Pie, and Cami’s request — a piñata! Of course, the biggest hit was the bounce-house slide.

    I love this party! It looks like your sister used whipped cream in between the layered jello. Was that used in place of the typical condensed milk that is usually used??Thanks
