MacAllisters 1st Birthday Party


Cowboy theme. We didnt want the same ole' theme from the stores, so my husband suggested Cowboy and Indian party. We had to ditch the indian idea after not finding anything in the stores. So Cowboy it was!

Design Inspiration

The inspiration was from a sock pony I had seen online! Then It went from there.

Decorating Style

Mixing old and new

3. Stick ponies made from medium men's socks, batting pillow stuffing, brown yarn, brown felt, google eyes, twine, sticks to hold them. All bought from Hobby Lobby as well. I made 19 of them in 3evenings. My wonderful husband even helped me sew on the hair on some of them!
