Oh my, what a hoe down! This party for little Kash was styled by his mom, Candice, and is a barnyard bash served up with style!  Candice and her husband put their own touches on this adorable party for their son including homemade signage, homemade cakepops and snacks, handmade burlap banners and wreaths, and most importantly, a downhome good time!  Yee Haw!


I love how Candice displayed the Pony-on-a-Stick-Cakepops on Rice Krispies Hay Stacks!

Wow, the horse treats are just so cute!  The fondant toppers combined with the monogrammed cupcake wrappers are such a great way to dress up cupcakes.

Ponies on a Stick...

Candice added so many special touches to the party.  There were hats for each guest and photos of Kash throughout the party.

There was a Bug Spray and Cool Down Station- definitely a great idea on a hot, hot day!

The children enjoyed many games.  I love the pony "tails" made of raffia that were used for "Pin the Tail on the Horsey"...

For party favors, Candice had magnets made for each family to take home to use and to have as a momento of the fun day!

Each child also had personalized buckets full of treats to take home...

Such a fabulous shindig!  Thank you so much for sharing your son's party, Candice!

What an amazing team effort from mom and dad. Loved using Rice Krispy treats as hay. The signs are gorgeous!
Another adorable party! Gotta love the Rice Krispeis as hay and the horse pops are to cute!
Absolutely adorable! Loved the monogram cupcake wrappers!!!!! Also, loved the signage!
You have been invited to a baby shower, and while the party is a few weeks away, you are stumped about what to get as a gift. Stores are not much help. With aisles of clothing, toys, and baby bedding, they present too many options for choosing a gift that parents will need. A baby shower, however, is more than a party; it is an opportunity for expecting parents to gain supplies for their new child. In this case, baby shower gifts should be both attractive and practical for the new parents.
