Yee Haw! This party was designed and styled for my neice Mia’s 4th birthday. Our inspiration was vintage lace and some good ol’ sweet southern charm. All things girly and oh course, pink were welcome for this sweet lil cowgirl shindig!
The pink ombre cake was a new learning experience for me and my sister. We baked three layers of cake and added more food coloring with each layer. At first I thought that we could achieve the look the natural way by using pureed strawberries, but we soon realized that we would have to crack open the dye. The rosette frosting was a new technique for me and although it was not perfect, I think it adds to that sweet ‘handmade by mommy’ look. Please note, you will be needing lots of frosting if you want to create those pretty rosettes!
These gorgeous hand iced lace sugar cookies were created by the fabulously talented Evon, of Cookievonster. She always amazes me with her fabulous talent!
I have come to love spray paint after styling this party. We purchased the little horse figurines at the dollar store and decided to make them gold along with some buttons so to add a shine to the dessert table. One gold horse was used for the cake topper to our pink ombre cake.
We wanted this the backdrop to be sweet and whimsical so we opted to create it of ribbon and lace.
So many lovely details worked together to create our rustic, yet modern cowgirl party; lace doilies, natural burlap, velvet, satin and leather ribbons. But, the sweetest of all was the little cowgirl princess. Happy Birthday beautiful!
