There have been some new folks from Pinterest? wordpress? not sure, but welcome and feel free to comment once and a while!
This is the post about my Pretty Pink Pony Party.. and the decor that I made to go with it!
This story starts a few months ago while garage saling, I found two beautiful (almost new) puzzles, perfect for some little girls.
Because I don’t have any girls of my own (other than my chickens), I decided to celebrate my five wonderful “nieces” who call me Auntie Meggie and host a “Pretty Pink Pony (Tea) Party” for these girls and my besties (their moms!)
I had a ton of fun coming up with the activities (hoof painting – aka manicures, colouring my-little-pony pages, beading necklaces with pony beads), as well as the food (rainbow cupcakes, pink punch in mason jars, and horse-friendly food, like apples and carrots!)
I had decided to make some bunting to hang around the balcony and whilst at the Sally Ann, I saw these amazing vintage pillow-cases. I love the flowers and the way the colours go together! The yellow rose one is the same pattern as my aunt used to have on the bed I slept on at my Nana’s house. (Actually, it could be the actual one, come to think of it!)
Making the tablecloth
Lay out the pc – pay attention to details such as the pattern and any trim
Cut and rip seams accordingly.
Stitch it all together.
I had this sweet trim in my ribbon box that was long enough to go all the way around.
Bunting (of course!)
What party/event/room is complete without some awesome bunting?!
Here’s a trick to sourcing the fabric. Go to your fave thrift store and figure out the “deal” of the day. For example, when I went, it was 3 “blue tags” for $1. Walk all over the store with your colour scheme in mind and pick up items of clothing that work. This bunting was made from baby’s leggings, a man’s tshirt, a women’s button-down shirt, kid’s pjs and a golf shirt, that I think belonged to my nana! This bunting cost under $5!!
Hope you’ve had a great summer, and have attended some fabulous parties.. pink or otherwise!
