Pony Party Round-Up #1

Today we are launching a brand new blog series called Pony Party Round-Up where we will showcase our favorite ideas from recent Pony Parties.

First up, this cuteness!
Cowboy Kingston's parents SURPRISED him with this birthday party.  How fun is that?!
When he woke up his parents outfitted him from head to toe.  He was dressed to the nines! He had it all - boots, hat, handcuffs, even a pretend light up cigar!  He had a blast being the sheriff for the day!

Next up is this ADORABLE cake! We love how it gave Frozen a ranch feel by adding sunflowers.

Next we have Isabel's 7th Birthday Party.
These super cute treat bags were from Etsy.
The party favors were also from Etsy.  They were these neat little handmade soaps that smelled like berries!

And how cool are these chocolate horse pops?  They are like edible art!  The kiddos LOVED them!

Lastly we have Laila's 8th birthday party.  She had her party at the ranch before and this time chose to go with a My Little Pony Theme.
We loved the colorful candy bar!
See that cake?  Her momma made it! So talented!
Cute Idea Alert! Cupcakes with toys on top that the guests can keep!

So there you have it! Our first Pony Party Round-Up!

Have a great day, y'all!

Some Sweet Wedding Inspiration {Bedell Wedding}

One of our favorite things to do is share with you beautiful ideas from the weddings that we have here at the ranch.
Ray and Callie Bedell's wedding was nothing short of inspiration!

First of all, the day was beautiful!

Sherrie Ortiz of Sherri's Cakes designed this beautiful and delicious cake!

The best part was that the flowers were edible and will be preserved in a engraved memory box. 

Russ Lawrence did the flowers for this event.

We absolutely LOVED the following idea. The bride had a throw bouquet specifically for the kids at the wedding. All she had to do was pull the ribbon and the flowers all came apart so that each child got one. Isn't that sweet?

We just love weddings like this that are full of special details.
Congrats once again to Mr. & Mrs. Bedell! Best wishes and lots of love to you both!

Have a great day, y'all!

iFamily KC Kids Club Event

Yesterday we had the pleasure of hosting one of iFamily KC's Kid Club events!
It was such a fun day!
First of all, the weather was beautiful! It had cooled down quite a bit which was wonderful after such a hot spell.   It made it a perfect day to spend outside on the ranch.  It was so nice seeing everyone enjoying themselves on the Wild Western Playground, the bounce house, and playing our ranch recreation games.  
The hayride, zip line, petting farm, and pony rides were also in full swing.
Many of our guests had never been to the ranch before so it was awesome to see them enjoy everything for the first time.

The nice weather also made it great for dining under our picnic pavilion.  The biggest hit from our concession stand were our brand new chicken fingers.

iFamily KC even had a photo op for the movie Shawn the Sheep complete with masks for the kiddos. It was so funny to see them walking around the ranch.  They fit right in...although it may have left our own sheep a little confused. ;)

Of course, Pumpkin the Cat did her job as Ranch Ambassador.  She greeted everyone as they entered and graciously allowed the guests to spoil her with lots of pets and attention.
  Granted, she fell asleep in the basket that we were using to hand out the parent packages.  
We'll forgive her for it though - after all, the queen needs a throne!

At the end of the day we also had a drawing for 4 Pumpkin Season tickets, as well as a puzzle and stickers from the Disney movie "Inside Out" that were provided by iFamilyKC.  We can't wait to call the lucky winner, Christine Diener!  

All in all, yesterday was just a blast.
We had such a great time showing off our beloved ranch to everyone.
Thanks again to iFamily KC for joining us at Faulkner's Ranch! We can't wait to do it again!

Want to take part in all the fun that the ranch has to offer?  Then be sure to visit us this Pumpkin Season!  It's gonna be a blast!

Have a great day, y'all!

A Wild Western Picnic {FMCTI}

Today we are throwing it back to a super fun company picnic that we had with the awesome people of FMCTI.
This picnic is the picture-perfect example of our Wild Western Package.
It had the works: cow milkin', the roller roper, the mechanical bull, fishing, and cow-pattie frisbee!  Plus, the pony rides and petting farm were in full swing.  It was just a beautiful day for a picnic!
Just take a look and see for yourself!

So much fun! FMCTI, y'all are awesome!

Have a great day, y'all!

A Sunny Picnic {NIC}

We'd be lying if we said that we didn't do a happy dance whenever we looked at the weather report and saw sunshine.  While our rainy day backup plans are just as fun, it's always nice when guests get to enjoy the ranch in its fullest, sunny glory.

That was just the luck for NIC (aka eGov) at their company picnic!
The weather was absolutely beautiful!  

This picnic had all of the elements for a really fun time!
The bull was bucking!

Ranch activities were in full swing!

The zipline was flying!

The petting farm animals were getting spoiled.

And of course, there was the most epic inflatable you've ever seen!

Not to mention, there were plenty of drinks flowing to help beat the heat... 

Guests also enjoyed a delicious and fresh buffet... 

Even the condiment table was a sight to behold...

After lunch, there was a special treat...
Nothing says summer like snow cones, y'all!

All in all, this picnic was just a blast!
Fun people, delicious food, and a beautiful day!
You couldn't ask for more!

Thanks again to NIC for partying with us at Faulkner's Ranch!

BONUS FUN FACT: After guests left, we had just 2 hours to turn this company picnic into this gorgeous wedding!
