When I was asked to help create a horse party for a loved 12-year-old girl, I immediately panicked. I know nothing about horses. Well...I've ridden a horse once, does that count? Luckily, party planning requires very little background knowledge.

After a bit of brainstorming on Pinterest and a little time sourcing products on Amazon, I came up with this inexpensive and simple plan. Take a look.

The stars of this show were these awesome horse balloons. I ordered them here. I was amazed at how big they were and how easy they were to inflate with a straw and a little blowing. I taped wooden skewers to the legs of the horse balloon to stand it up in my wooden planter box. It worked perfectly.

I also purchased these horse napkins. When planning parties, it's always fun to find a great themed party plate or napkin for the table. I've planned entire parties around a fun paper napkin.
These napkins tied in the horse theme perfectly. I added solid colored paper plates and cups to go with the blue and green in the napkins.

Turf pieces were leftover from another party and used as chargers. I use them all the time!
Wooden sporks are from here.
My blue and green felt letterboards have been used for so many parties...I love them.

I added these horse cutouts to all the printed signs and sprinkled them on the table!

Now let's talk about the snacks!

Creative tags make ordinary snacks extra fun!

I printed out these tags, (click here) on kraft cardstock and stuck a horse cutout on each one. Small, thin skewers were taped to the back of the tags and tucked into the snacks.
Now take a look at this horse cake made by a local bakery! Wow!
