One of our favorite things on Pony Party Saturday’s is seeing the awesome cakes that the mamas and papas bring to the table.  Seriously, some of these look like they are from Cake Boss!
Just see for yourself…
 
We told ya they were amazing!
We are also loving the adorable and delicious trend of cupcakes and cake pops. Cake pops, along with cupcakes, are a great choice for a birthday party because they are easy to clean up.

We sure have been having our fair share of ADORABLE Pony Parties this year!
One of our favorite things to see is the creative party favors that our party mamas and papas come up with.  Giving your guests a party favor to take home is a great way to say thank you for presence!  It doesn’t have to be anything complicated.  Something as simple as candy or cookies, western toys, or a bandana are great ideas! 
Here are just some of the cute ways that they have packaged them:

Isn’t it amazing how a brown-paper bag can be made to look this cute?  You can find stickers like this on Etsy!
We love the use of a bandana in place of tissue paper!  Plus, the Washi tape to attach the sign adds that extra special touch!

It might be chilly outside, but it is nice and warm in our Pony Party Barn!
We’ve been celebrating lots of little buckaroos big birthdays this year and we’ve seen some really cool ideas.  Just check out these pictures from Kloe’s 5th Birthday.  Her mama put so much attention into the little details.  And you know what we say, little details make a BIG impact!
Just see for yourself!
We love this fun 5! It gave such a great focal point in the Pony Party room.  Plus, it is the kind of decoration Kloe can keep it up in her room all year long.
How sweet is this cake? Some pony toys and a plastic fence added the perfect touches!
Of course, you have to have something to eat that cake with.  These silverware holders were made using cow print napkins and gingham ribbon.  This is a quick and simple project that has a nice visual impact.  Plus, your little guests just have grab one thing before they sit down to eat.

One of our favorite things that we like to see at our birthday parties is the names for different food that people come up with.  Here we’ve got Cow Pies (no-bake cookies) and Hay Bales (Rice Krispie Treats).  

Of course, no party would be complete without a cute party favor! Here, a cute little sign and some ribbons turns this brown paper bag into an adorable take-home treat!
Thanks again to Kloe for choosing Faulkner’s Ranch to celebrate her 5th Birthday!

If there is one thing that we all love here at the ranch it is some Taylor Swift.  We can’t help it – we are all die hard T-Swizzle fans.  We just love her!
So, of course when we found out that a very special birthday girl had only two requests for her big day, Faulkner’s Ranch and Taylor Swift, we were honored!  To be in the same ranks as our gal T – such a huge compliment!
Her mama did such a great job with the details.  Just look at this beautiful table setup…

And look – there’s Taylor!
There were other special details too like this homemade banner…
Such love!
Plus, we just loved the way that she displayed her lollipops.
So clever and fun!
Thanks again for picking us for your special day!  We hope that it was “enchanted”!
We’re curious – what is your favorite Taylor Swift song?  This is our current fave:

Have a great day, ya’ll!

Remember Kate’s birthday party with the awesome cake?
Well, they also had some super cute party favors!
And guess what they’re made out of!
That’s right – Pool Noodles!
They’re just too neat!  That’s why we thought we’d share with you a little tutorial on how to make some Pool Noodle Horses of your own!
To make these you will need:
1 Pool Noodle
A Set of Googly Eyes
Rubber Band
Fabric (felt is recommended)
Yarn or String
Glue Gun
Instructions:
1.  Fold the top portion of the pool noodle over to create the head of your horse and secure it with the rubber band.
2.  Cut your yarn/string about an arms length and wrap it around the elastic a few times.  Tie it and leave the ends hanging (those are the reins!).
3.  Cut the felt fabric into triangles for your horse’s mane.  Using the glue gun, attach it to the horses head and allow it to cool.
4.  Now it’s time to add the googly eyes! Put a dab of glue on each eye and allow it to cool a moment before you press them onto the sides of the face.
5.  Double check that everything is secure (esp. if you have little little ones playing with these) and enjoy!

Have a great day, ya’ll!

This pony party was so creative that it looked like it was something you’d see on Pinterest!  That’s why today we’re taking a lesson from this party mama for 5  fun ways that you can add that Pinterest-touch to your birthday party!
Enjoy!
1.  Help Your Guests Dude Up
Have some hats and bandanas available to your guests when they arrive to help get them into the spirit of the wild west!  These also serve as a great party favor to take home!
2.  Give Ordinary Things a Fun Name
Why just have a drink station when you can have a Waterin’ Hole?
Rice Krispie treats can be haystacks and granola can be chicken feed!  The ideas are endless! 
3.  Bring On the Banners
This party mama made good use of her Cricut.  The birthday banner she made added such a sweet, personal touch!
4.  Add Small Touches!
Here’s some more Cricut action!  We loved the sheriff’s badges and the horseshoes added to the cookies!  It made something that could have looked plain look really, really cute! 

5.  Spiffy Up Your Cake
This cake was a Walmart cake that they embellished.  Isn’t it awesome?  A bandana, a mini-banner, and some cake decorations on toothpicks made it one-of-a-kind!
What was your favorite Pinteresty-touch from this party???

Sometimes our party mamas just blow us away!
That was definitely the case with Hailey’s birthday party.
To say that it was amazing would be an understatement!
Hailey actually had her fourth birthday party here and she and her parents loved it so much that they decided to celebrate her sixth birthday with us too.  This time they went all out!  This party had everything: pony rides, petting farm, hayride, moonwalk, zip line, face painter, balloon artist and more!
They definitely set the scene with their awesome decor.
Just check out this banner made especially for the birthday girl?  
Talk about one lucky little gal!
And then there was this amazing balloon arch from Up Up and Away Balloons
What a fun way to make an entrance!
Besides all of the fun activities, everyone enjoyed some yummy roasted hot dogs under the pavilion…
And let’s not forget dessert!  These were the biggest cupcakes we have ever seen!
The guests didn’t go home empty handed.  Even the party favors were adorable…
All of the attention to detail and fun activities made this party one that their guests will be talking about for ages.
Thanks for celebrating your birthday with us again, Hailey!  We hope that 6 is a year to remember!

One of our favorite birthday party trends that we are seeing more of this year is parents hiring professional photographers for the big day.
There are so many benefits to this:
1.  Hiring a photographer let’s you enjoy the party! Instead of worrying about getting pictures of every moment, you are a part of every moment.
2.  The photos will be better.  After all, they’re pros at it!
3.  You not only have beautiful photographs to keep as keepsakes, but you can also use them on thank you notes.
Need to see for yourself?  Just check out these photos from one of our parties taken by Jennifer Cuscino of  JWC Fotos.

I think it goes without saying that most people love Saturdays.  It’s the weekend after all!
Well, we especially love them here at the ranch because our Saturday’s are filled with Pony Parties!
Lately we’ve had some super cute parties come through.
Just see for yourself!
We loved this Toy Story inspired birthday cake!  Isn’t it adorable?
Adelyn, one of our birthday cowgirls, loves animals.  So of course this super cute cake was very fitting!
These adorable cupcakes were made with love by one of the birthday mama’s. We love how she used the old fashioned peanut candy.  It made us think of Bud Faulkner, better known as Granddaddy, and how he always kept that kind of candy in his office at the Western Wear store.
They are pretty creative, huh?
We can’t forget to showcase some of the Pony Party fashion.  Gotta love a fancy pair of boots!
Of course, no birthday would be complete without meeting the party animals!
Check out these two little siblings.  They’re just two weeks old and best friends already!
The parties especially love the goat climb! (And so do the goats!  They always have very happy tummies after birthday parties!)
 
We love a great party favor! We love how these healthy treats were wrapped up in bandannas!
And last but not least, a special thanks to all of our little birthday cowgirls and cowboys!  You make our Saturdays so much fun!
