Ethan's 4th 'Horsey Cowboy' Birthday Party

It was my big boy Ethan's 4th birthday at the beginning of August and that brought with it his long awaited 'Horsey' birthday party!  Ethan picked his theme for this year's party about 7 months ago and boy has it been a long 7 months with many 'is it my horsey party today?' conversations!

Ethan was very particular that he wanted a horse party and not a cowboy party however mummy was able to eventually sway that slightly as it was tricky finding masculine horse products, everything seemed to be pink but he was pretty sold on getting to dress up as a cowboy so 'Horsey Cowboy' it was!

We set up our back area like a barn and decked out with horse props including saddle and stand, hay, wine barrel, wagon wheel and gorgeous old fashioned boxes.  We set this around our day bed which also acted as our 'photo booth'.

Yummies on our dessert table were toffee apples, wagon wheels, cupcakes, caramel popcorn, milk bottles, malteasers, cookies and cake pops.

Sweet mini glass milk bottles and cowboy boot cups filled with chocolate milk sat on 'the wine barrel bar' and cute personalised horse tableware set the kids table.

Our bucket party bags were filled with horsey treats and sweets as a take home thank you.

It was a fabulous day and Ethan had a blast!
