What child doesn't love horses? These fun and tasty pony party party ideas – including horse party invitations, pony party decorations, recipes, and more – will have all your guests feeling like they've hit a dude ranch!
Girls and boys aged six through twelve just love anything animal-related. For a boy's party, you may want to consider mixing in a cowboy party theme. For a girl's party, you can always add some unicorn party magic.
For peace of mind, begin planning your horse party bash six to eight weeks in advance. This will allow you time to gather all the supplies that you need, including horse party decorations, gifts, and menu items. Planning ahead also gives your guests time to RSVP and make travel plans, if needed. Don't panic if you find yourself short on time; you can still plan a great party! Planning ahead simply reduces the risk of conflicts with guests' plans and may increase your party’s attendance.
For pony birthday invitations, use white card stock or construction paper folded in half, and decorate it with horse cutouts or horse stickers. You can also use our easy, printable party invitations. Or, if you’re short on time, purchase personalized r pre-printed pony birthday invitations online. We recommend mailing your invitations three to four weeks prior to the party—any sooner and your guests may forget, any later and your guests may already have plans.
To simplify the rest of the party planning process, check out our Party Planning Timeline, and read the paragraphs below for information on selecting horse party supplies, pony birthday activities, and more for your child's party.
What You’ll Need
If you plan to use paper tableware and horse party supplies, our Suggested Party Supply List may be quite helpful. Please note that you may not need everything on the list; it is intended only as a guide.
For a horse birthday party, think brown green and yellow as your main color scheme. Simple balloons and pretty pastel streamers work perfectly. For goodie bags, purchase horse stickers, miniature horse figures, cowboy hats, assorted , and other horse party favors. Place all of these items inside clear or printed cellophane bags, and tie the bags closed with colored ribbons.
