The Invitation

The Birthday Girl

Eagerly awaiting the horses coming out....
My friend Lisa brought TWO horses over for the the children to ride!! All the kids LOVED it of course.

Other Fun
My mom did face painting at the party, and the children LOVED it!! Here is my niece Hope getting her hand painted......which actually makes more sense to me. I mean, why the face? The kids don't even get to see what it looks like! HA!

Of course what's a cowgirl party without a horse pinata?? Now that's some mad MAYHEM down below!!

The Dessert!
My sister and I spent a total of eighteen hours making the cupcakes and cookies......but totally worth the look on Ava's face!

I found this darling topper on Etsy! You can go here to see more.

Singing Happy Birthday
The Gifts

Ava has been BEGGING for this car ever since Christmas.....when all her presents were opened at Christmas, and this was not one of them, she said, "Mommy, Santa forgot my pink car!"........needless to say, we just couldn't disappoint her again!! ha!ha!
Now HERE'S a duo for you!!......THE COUSINS......A.K.A.....TROUBLE!

She recieved almost ALL horse related gifts........which she LOVED!!
A few other PRECIOUS 'PRESHIES' that came to the party!

Even though the guest list was a BIT out of control, the party was so much fun and Ava had a total blast! I tend to go a LITTLE overboard when I plan parties, but I LOVE them soooo much!! I love everything about them. From the planning, to the details, to the actual day.....I LOVE IT!! And it's especially worth it when it's for your children.......
Happy Fourth Birthday Ava!!!!!!!

    Ok girlfriend, this has to be the cutest party EVER! I love everything and don't know where to start. Where in the world did you get the cupcake holder thingy? How did you make those sweet treats?? Love them.

    Did you do goodie bags or the pinata serve the trick? Just curious.

    I would SO love you to help me with Shelby's next party! I love all this stuff and am not good at it at all.
