When Anna, the animal lover, turned eleven in November, we decided to give her an equestrian party. She was thrilled. Giving Tween parties can be a little tricky. They're too old for pre-school frou-frou, but that doesn't mean one should give up style!
The stables provided the perfect backdrop for an outdoor picnic.
I used tan tablecloths from Target and topped them with strips of fun fabric.
I loved these "green" plates and bamboo forks from Party City.
The girls all wanted to take the forks home with them as souvenirs!
Mason Jars with flowers added to the rustic theme.
Each plate was topped with a Horse-shaped cookie in a cellophane bag tied with raffia.
I was even able to re-use the bunting from Ella's "Pink Party!"
IBC Root Beer in a bottle added an old-fashioned touch.
I kept the dessert simple with chocolate cupcakes.
When not riding horses, the girls decorated horse shoes.
And everyone went home with "CowGirl" Cookies in a Jar.
You can find the How-To on these along with the cute labels on Bakerella's website!
And, of course, a few more pictures of the party girls!
Happy Birthday, Anna!
