This pony party was so creative that it looked like it was something you’d see on Pinterest!  That’s why today we’re taking a lesson from this party mama for 5  fun ways that you can add that Pinterest-touch to your birthday party!
1.  Help Your Guests Dude Up
Have some hats and bandanas available to your guests when they arrive to help get them into the spirit of the wild west!  These also serve as a great party favor to take home!
2.  Give Ordinary Things a Fun Name
Why just have a drink station when you can have a Waterin’ Hole?
Rice Krispie treats can be haystacks and granola can be chicken feed!  The ideas are endless! 
3.  Bring On the Banners
This party mama made good use of her Cricut.  The birthday banner she made added such a sweet, personal touch!
4.  Add Small Touches!
Here’s some more Cricut action!  We loved the sheriff’s badges and the horseshoes added to the cookies!  It made something that could have looked plain look really, really cute! 

5.  Spiffy Up Your Cake
This cake was a Walmart cake that they embellished.  Isn’t it awesome?  A bandana, a mini-banner, and some cake decorations on toothpicks made it one-of-a-kind!
What was your favorite Pinteresty-touch from this party???

Sometimes our party mamas just blow us away!
That was definitely the case with Hailey’s birthday party.
To say that it was amazing would be an understatement!
Hailey actually had her fourth birthday party here and she and her parents loved it so much that they decided to celebrate her sixth birthday with us too.  This time they went all out!  This party had everything: pony rides, petting farm, hayride, moonwalk, zip line, face painter, balloon artist and more!
They definitely set the scene with their awesome decor.
Just check out this banner made especially for the birthday girl?  
Talk about one lucky little gal!
And then there was this amazing balloon arch from Up Up and Away Balloons
What a fun way to make an entrance!
Besides all of the fun activities, everyone enjoyed some yummy roasted hot dogs under the pavilion…
And let’s not forget dessert!  These were the biggest cupcakes we have ever seen!
The guests didn’t go home empty handed.  Even the party favors were adorable…
All of the attention to detail and fun activities made this party one that their guests will be talking about for ages.
Thanks for celebrating your birthday with us again, Hailey!  We hope that 6 is a year to remember!

On May 4th, we were thrilled to host Sugar Creek Equinapy’s Kentucky Derby Party here at the ranch.
Sugar Creek Equinapy is not-for-profit charitable organization that serves those who have disabilities through equine-assisted therapy at their therapeutic riding center located in Harrisonville, MO.  To give you just a glimpse at the amazing things they do, just read their mission statement:
“Our mission is to improve the quality of life for those who have physically, mentally, emotionally, or debilitating life situation through the use of equinapy, our horse-assisted therapy program. We will strive to make a positive difference in the lives of our staff, volunteers, and our animals, to create an atmosphere that is inclusive to all.”
Needless to say, we were so excited to have them here at the ranch celebrating our mutual love for horses.
This party was a lot of fun!  There were so many neat ideas that they incorporated that made us feel like we were at the actual Derby.
For example, like any good Derby Day, there were lots of awesome hats!
In fact, the students created and entered Derby Hats into a competition to be voted on.  Here was the winning hat that day:
Pretty cool, huh?
They also had the official Derby drink, Mint Juleps.
Lisa here used mint from her garden and sonic crushed ice to add her own flair to this classic drink.  She truly went above and beyond making them – they were delicious!
For food they chose to serve an incredibly yummy spread of our wings, sausage medallions, pulled pork sliders, cheeses, and assorted veggies.  Just thinking about it makes us hungry again!
In addition to the delicious food and drinks, they also played games and had a silent and live auction.  Here’s one of the unique items that was up for bid…
A piece of Derby Pie!
And of course, we all gathered around the big screen to watch the 139th Kentucky Derby Race take place.  They say that it is the most exciting two minutes in history and that is so true!
All in all, this was one great party!
A special thanks to Sugar Creek Equinapy for choosing to celebrate at Faulkner’s!
As you can see, we host a variety of parties here at Faulkner’s Ranch!  Are you interested in having your special event with us?  Just click here for more info or give us a call today!

Most people know Faulkner’s Ranch for our Pumpkin Season.  Others know it for our company picnics and weddings.
But did you know that we actually host a variety of parties and events from benefits to milestone parties to team building and awards ceremonies?
Early in March we hosted two unique (and very fun!) events.
The first was with the Lee’s Summit Basketball Association on March 3rd.  They celebrated their board appreciation dinner here at the ranch.  One of the most special moments of this event was when they recognized one of their referees for the way he handled himself during a stressful situation at a game.  A random fan saw his behavior and felt that it should be commended.  They wrote a letter to the board to let them know how this awesome 21 year old stayed composed and set an example for everyone watching.
Applause for a job well done.
The next event was one of our favorites of the year – The Sears Power Rama Training!

“Schmitty” polishing up the new lawn mowers.
This event, which took place over the course of three days, was a lot of fun.  Each day, the Sear’s lawn and garden sales associations would come in to train the Sears employees on their products.  One of the reasons that we love this event every year is that it signifies one thing – Spring is coming!
The Sears employees and truck drivers are so incredibly nice.  They are all so fun and friendly to work with.  The truck drivers even went out of their way to give one of the Faulkner grandchildren, Miles, a special tour of their big rig.  Wasn’t that nice of them? And not only that, but they also gave him a t-shirt which totally made his day.  He even wore it to school the next day!

So, as you can see, we do more than just pumpkins here at Faulkner’s!

Remember on Wednesday when we told you all about our huge power outage during a picnic?
Well boy oh boy, were we sure glad to see the power come back on because that evening we had a second event with 150 guests who were in for a real treat…
The one and only,
All the way from Nashville, Tennessee,
Haven’t heard of him? Well, we hadn’t either.
But we knew he was a big deal when he rolled up in this…
This is a guy to keep your eye on because he sounded amazing.  Just check out the clip below…

And he had a CD, which everyone at the party got to take home a copy of!
All in all, he is kind of a big deal and you may want to check out his Facebook page so that you can tell your friends “I knew him before he won a CMA.”
Christine poses for a picture with Glen Templeton.

It was a blast having his band before at the Ranch.  In addition to the awesome private show, the guests enjoyed the BBQ so much that the party host and the client recognized the Ranch Staff at the end of the event on the microphone and said that the food was “phenomenal.”
I guess you’ll just have to stop on by and try it out for yourself ;o)

So, as you can see, our September events at the Ranch are in full swing!
