#1 – Fabric Horseshoe Door Wreaths

What a fun way to greet your pony party guests! These darling horseshoe wreaths are made from square pieces of pink gingham fabric that were cut with pinking shears for added texture. You can rent these exact wreaths from Undercover Hostess as part of their Shabby Chic Pony Pary Kit or go the DIY route and make a similar item yourself. Use a horseshoe shaped cut out of wood, cardboard, or styrofoam as your base.

#2 – Shabby Chic Rag Tie Bunting

Using the same mix of shabby chic fabrics throughout the party really helped pull everything together! Rag tie buntings are made by ripping strips of fabric (instead of cutting them). There are lots of helpful rag tie bunting tutorials available online. You can also rent this exact bunting from Undercover Hostess. The coordinating pony party invitations and printables are available for purchase there as well.

#3 – Hay Bale Table Seating

Hay bale seating is SUCH a fun way to theme up your pony party atmosphere. Little ones will go crazy over it too! Just drape squares of fabric or small blankets over the bales to make them more comfortable (and a little less messy!).

#4 – Shabby Chic Cake JarParfaits

Cake jar parfaits look even prettier all dressed up with a fabric top! For added interest, use a few different fabrics that coordinate well with each other, and add pretty texture to the edges with pinking shears. Secure the fabric tops with baker’s twine. Erin also shared a recipe tutorial for these lemon blueberry parfaits on her website.

#5 – Lasso Rope Name Sign

This giant lasso rope name sign is definitely a showstopper and a great way to highlight the birthday girl. Erin added the rope to the plywood sign using a staple gun, but I’ve also seen it done using hot glue. You can find DIY tutorials for this type of sign online (I really like this tutorial in particular), or you can order them custom made for you at places like Rope and Style on Etsy.
