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.

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!

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???

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.

Aren’t they priceless?  You can hiring Jennifer for your Pony Party by calling (913) 515-7551 or e-mailing her at cuscino222@yahoo.com

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!

Lately our weekends here at the ranch have been filled with the cutest little cowboys and cowgirls coming to celebrate their birthdays
with a Pony Party!
We just love seeing the awesome ideas that their mamas and papas come up with.  We especially love seeing what theme they choose!
This month we had a super cute theme that we just had to share…
A Princess Pony Party!
Meet Olivia! The Birthday Girl and Princess for the day!  
She is also a Pony Camp graduate!  
Last year she celebrated with us with a cowgirl themed party, but this year she brought the sparkle and the glitz with a super cute princess theme.
Of course, Olivia was dressed for the part complete with a tiara and wand!  And check out that ring on her finger!  This party was all about the bling – lots of sweetness and sparkles!
Party Tip: In the invitation, encourage your kiddo’s guests to dress according to the theme!  It not only gets them excited for the party, but it also makes for some really cute pictures on the big day.
We just love it when our pony campers come back to the ranch to celebrate their birthdays. It’s so much fun to see them reunite with their pony camp pony and show what they learned to their friends.  Plus, the ponies LOVE all of the extra special attention. 
A good party favor is a great way to thank your guests for coming and a fantastic way to give them something to remember the fun that they had.  We just love the party favors from this party!  Aren’t they cute?
Her mom ordered these personalized bottlecap necklaces from Etsy to give to all of the girls.  
Party Tip: With handmade or personalized party favors, it is important that you know your guest list well in advance so that you get them ordered on time.
The cuteness didn’t stop there.  Just look at the adorable pony cookies that were served.
Not to mention this princess cake…
Can you believe that her mom made it herself?!  Way to go, mama!
Party Tip: Even one really creative snack that goes along with your theme, like the cookies above, will leave a lasting impression on your guest.
Needless to say, this was a super fun party with a super fun little gal!
Thanks for celebrating your birthday with us again, Olivia!  You rock!

One of the super cool birthday cakes we’ve seen here at the ranch!
We’ve mentioned it before, but we’ll say it again…
We just LOVE birthday parties here at the ranch!
Not only do we get to meet some of the coolest little cowboys and cowgirls, but we are also just blown away by the creativity of their parents.
Just check out some of the awesome ideas and pictures from a few weeks ago!
 This little cowgirl attended Pony Camp last summer.  She takes horseback riding lessons and told us that she is now a “professional rider.”  You go cowgirl!  That’s why she wanted to celebrate her birthday at Faulkner’s Ranch.  She wanted to show her friends where she got her start!  Isn’t that cool?!
Here’s another sweet cowgirl!  We just LOVE her style. Pink hat, pink bandanna, pink horseshoes on her shirt!  She is rockin’ the western chic look for sure!
And check out the amazing cake that her mama made.  Isn’t it unbelievable?
Not to mention these super cute party favor bags…

The weekend of January 5th and 6th was a busy one here at Faulkner’s Ranch!
We had 6, count ’em 6, Indoor Pony Parties!
And boy were they a rootin’ tootin’ good time!
We just love seeing all of the creative ideas that our pony party mamas and papas bring with them and the ones from this weekend were just too great to not share!
Just see for yourself!
This beautiful cake and colorful cupcakes were for a party of two sisters that attended Pony Camp 1 last summer.  We love the splashes of pink!  So fun and girly!

Speaking of those two sisters, aren’t they just the cutest! They will be attending Pony Camp 2 this summer and are anxious to know who there ponies will be!

Looking for an easy to make and adorable party favor?  This mama found the perfect one with these s’mores kits to take home!  Pretty darn cute if you ask us!

We love seeing the high fashions of the party guests.  After all, who says you can’t wear a pink tutu to the ranch?!

This rootin-tootin 9 year old cowboy birthday party had a great table setup, completely with a cowboy hat and personalized rootbeer!

Speaking of that custom rootbeer, isn’t it another great idea for a party favor?!

We were also pretty obsessed with this awesome table runner that was made to look like chaps!
This decor was just too pinworthy to not share!  You can find cool metal letters like this at Hobby Lobby!
So, as you can see, there are a ton of different ways that you can make your Pony Party your own!
Which way would you go?
Have a great day ya’ll
