Clara really wanted a horse-themed party. A local stable provided a terrific backdrop on a beautiful fall day. The girls learned about safety around horses and how to brush them, and then got to ride!
We went with a more traditional, rustic color scheme and theme because Clara's favorite color is blue. I used the kids' artwork and made banners with scrapbook paper as decorations.
Carrots and apples were served in aluminum pie tins. We served a 'happy trails mix' in kraft paper 'feedbags'. The cupcakes were red velvet in adorable bandana print papers with toy horses. Each guest received a tin bucket with a homemade caramel apple.
Treat bags were dollar store flocked horses and horse stickers tied up in bandanas with twine and craft store wooden horseshoes. I printed the tags using horse images from the internet and a western-looking font. It was a terrific day!
