My Little Harlan: Harlan’s Sixth Birthday Party” originally appeared on A Mommy in the City and was reprinted with permission.

We recently celebrated my daughter Harlan’s birthday. She’s been planning this party since the day after her 5th birthday party was over. She takes her birthday parties as serious business. After all, it’s a party that is all about her having fun with her friends and celebrating a wonderful occasion, so who can blame her?

This year’s theme was My Little Pony. With so many color options, we decided not to limit ourselves to any single one and went with a rainbow of colors for the decor!

I tried to incorporate all of the colors of the rainbow when preparing the food for the party. The kids especially loved the rainbow marshmallows. I made them for Harlan’s 4th birthday party and they were a hit then too. They might have to be a yearly birthday party tradition.

The cake was another Magnolia Bakery treat. We’ve used them every year and I never regret it. They always make my vision come to life!

The backdrop was a vision that I’d been planning for months and hoped that it would work.  It turned out better than I imagined. It was super easy and I only used three materials.

With rainbow confetti, My Little Pony figurines, and colorful tableware, the party tables were a rainbow of colors for the guests.

Hasbro was nice enough to send us these My Little Pony Equestria Girls dolls for the guests to take home as party favors. They were SO excited to take a little bit of the theme of the day home with them.

The party was originally supposed to be outside, but because of the crummy weather, we had to move everything indoors. But that didn’t stop the special guests from making it a fun party. Elsa and Alice in Wonderland made an appearance and entertained the guests for the party.

New York Princess Party has a variety of Princesses to choose from and Harlan chose these lovely ladies. They came dressed and ready to have a great time. I don’t think a smile left any of the party guest’s faces at any point of their visit.

The played games, sang songs, got their nails painted, face paint, and read the girls a story.
