My Little Pony Party

My 7 year old daughter asked for a My Little Pony party for her birthday. Here in the UK My Little Pony is only just starting to make a come back so I found that finding tablewear was not so easy. I did manage to find most of what I needed on Ebay though, and I bought a table cloth in pink from a local store.
For decoration I used balloons and Happy Birthday Banners, they were not My Little Pony related but I tried to match the colours.
As my daughter’s favourite My Little Pony is Rainbow Dash I found I could also get away with a rainbow theme. I used this on the cupcakes, decorating them in rainbow sprinkles. I also used it in the birthday cake but more about that in a minute.

For Activities we started by decorating pony templates which I had made and printed on to card. I cut them out before the party. The girls were given pens, glitter glue and glitter to decorate their ponies, then we finished them with strips of wool for their tails.
We also played the usual party games of Pass The Parcel, Musical Statues and Musical Bumps. Everyone attending managed to win a little prize.
Then we had an apple hunt to feed the ponies. I hid cardboard apples all around the garden and the girls went out to search for them. When they brought them back to me I rewarded them with pony food (sweeties) and the one who brought the most back won a little prize.

For Food we had a buffet spread of sandwhiches, sausage rolls, salad, chicken dippers, crisps, cupcakes, biscuits, salad and fruit. A little good and a little bad 🙂

The Cake I made myself and you can see how here. I wanted a rainbow cake but not the usual layers of coloured sponge because I find these a little sickly with all the butter cream in between layers. Also, it’s difficult to do a rainbow cake that doesn’t end up really high. So I had a go at mixing colours within the cake and I think it turned out nice. The cake I wanted white to contrast the colourful interior, then I decorated it with a fondant pony and rainbow.

There was only a small turn out but the girls had lots of fun.

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I’ve also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me…is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I’ve loved. If I don’t love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It’s always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I’ll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
