All American Girl Birthday Party

Oh, how I love throwing a birthday party!  I am so thrilled to share with you a party I designed for my daughter's birthday party last year.  Featuring a dessert display from our sister company, EyeCandy, this theme is so fun and I am proud to show off how cute everything turned out!!  While much of this is on EyeCandy's blog (see it here) , I wanted to highlight some of the decor elements for you too.

I chose red white and blue for the American Girl theme, with circles from the birthday girl's 8 and little touches of green and butterflies for the decor.

Decor above the craft table.  The girls created hats and scarves for themselves and their dolls, thanks to Nana.

And had a fashion show on a red carpet runway.

The table full of red, white and blue with special seats constructed for the dolls to sit too.

Pom pom embellishments for the chandelier

Clear glass vessels were used as the centerpiece display -- check out the floating butterflies in the bell jar.

And the big feature -- a dessert table by EyeCandy with treats for the dolls too!
 Little parfaits, teensy popcorn miniature candied apples, tiny red velvet whoopie pies and the cutest mini three tiered cake were the stars in this red, white and blue table.
Custom designed sugar cookies by If So Inklined Calligraphy and Illustration
and gorgeous labels too!

The drink station with more glass vessels and polka dots!

Such an adorable party!

  1. Ami, I Love this! The color combo, the make and take, the tiny desserts- just wonderful! And I love that you are doing what you love! :)

  2. What a cute party! Can you give me any idea how the hats and scarves were made?

  3. How did you make the seats that the AG doll sit in at the table??

  4. How did you make the seats for the dolls and what measurements do you have for the scarves? Thank you.

  5. Please, oh PLEASE tell me how you made the seats for the dolls!

  6. The doll seats just require a little balancing -- the dolls really have to be in a seated position. I used wide wire-edged ribbon and 2 big clips with rubber ends purchased at the dollar store. They really did work!
