All the photos from the party for my granddaughter Gianna Rose Rizzo's 3rd birthday.

My daughter and Gianna's mother, Jenny, has becoming such an amazing party planner that I think she should take it up professionally. For example, she managed to create a party that was…

  • Near her home
  • No cleanup or cooking
  • Absolutely perfect for a new 3-year-old

The place is called Charming Pony Parties, and I think it is just about the cleverest idea for a business ever. More to the point, however, is how much fun the birthday girl, her friends, and the adults all had. (Granted, the adults' fun was mostly watching the kids be adorable; but that totally works for me!)

The place is located in Chandler on McQueen Rd just north of Queen Creek Rd. There are no big signs, but the odd-looking collection of buildings (including a castle and a pirate ship) is hard to miss.

There's room for parking for any-sized normal party you can imagine. On the grounds, besides the pirate ship and castle, are stables with horses and ponies; a petting zoo; a bounce-house, and lots of small amenities, like a sno-cone maker and bubble machine.

Not to mention Cinderella's carriage.

Because I took so many pictures (and so did Gianna's Uncle John, and we've combined them here) that I have split them into separate pages, so they won't take so long to load.

The kids were never given time to get bored. Soon it was time for the pony rides, which was a great hit among the kids (and photo-opping parents).
