More sweet ideas for your pony party:
- Sure cookie cutters help you make fun cookies for party-goers, but you can also
use cookie cutters as stencils for invitations, decorations and other crafts, as
well as for other food items. So go ahead and cut it out!
- Cookie cutters are great for cutting sandwiches for the kids, but don't try cutting
out pizza. It's a lot of work, it won't look right, and your pizza will get cold. Trust

(and so do kids), so start with a bushel of fresh juicy red apples. Or put apples
in a bucket, lined with a bandanna or a checked cloth.
- Be sure to see our party snack mix ideas, which look great in the feed buckets.
On the sweeter side, try caramel or candied apples. Horses love sugar too, so
stack sugar cubes intended for the coffee and tea at cake time. For the tea
bags, place a small horse sticker on the paper tag to give it a horsey touch.
- For the main meal, make it easy on yourself with burgers and hot dogs served
with shoe-string potatoes to look like haystacks. Food is made more fun served
up in pie tins for a cowboy party. Or serve burgers in an upturned plastic
cowboy hat with chips. Chicken and corn on the cob is another crowd pleaser.
To make things extra horsey, serve biscuits cut into horse-shoe shapes. Carrot
and celery sticks are another obvious choice.
