The Princess turned 4 last May. We didn’t really plan to host a party for her, but when we asked her to choose between swimming + zoo and a party, she willingly let go of the first choice. She hasn’t seen her friends from school the whole summer so her only request was to have a small My Little Pony birthday party with them at home.
This was two weeks before her birthday so imagine my panic! The truth is, I’m the worst at hosting a DIY party. Since we were hosting the party at home, I couldn’t pass on the decoration task to the venue/caterer. Thankfully, I have relatives and friends who willingly helped plan the party with us and even provided the props we need to truly make it a party for everypony.
I think the only preparation I did here is to buy a cake and reserve an ice cream cart for the guests. LOL! Excuse me ha. FYI, the guests enjoyed my two contributions! 😀
Anyway… I ordered the cake from Baker Rae. Twilight Sparkle is the Princess’ favorite pony so we had this cake made for her birthday party. Isn’t it cute?!
My mom prepared a simple lunch menu for the guests. We had spaghetti (of course), chicken lollipop, pork barbecue, Arjay’s Grilled Tilapia, and mechado.
Arjay and our friend Nikka did the venue set up–which is just pony-tastic! I cannot believe they were able to pull it off with the limited materials. Then again, these two have always been a good tandem for anything involving art and design.
Everything we used in the sweets buffet–the jars, glass bottles, labels–were made by my cousin Ellen of Sugar Spice by Mogwai. She also made rainbow cupcakes and “magical” grape juice for the kiddies. I have to say, this buffet was a hit!
The Princess’ lola also hired clowns because what’s a party without some entertainment, right? We sure were entertained by this duo!
Most of the kids are English speakers kasi so na-challenge ang aming entertainers for that day. The result? Entertained kaming lahat. Haha!
The party lasted until late in the evening. We didn’t expect that a lot of guests will join us in our celebration, but we’re really happy that many of our friends and relatives came! The Princess says thanks! <3
