Amazing American Girl Party

For my 12th birthday I had a small american girl party with my friends. It was a ton of fun, and others should have one too. My budget was 50$ and I did most of the planing.

INVITATION 

To start the fun I made a invitation of grace in the bakery.

Here it is open. I made the invitation  but the local copy shop printed it. I kept one.

DECORATIONS 

I decorated the house in Pink, and White.

In my room I hung up balloons.

And my bed matched it all, with the pink bedding, and posters.

I set up the cart to play with.

Downstairs, the railing was covered in tissue paper.

I had balloons everywhere.

The chandelier had streamers from it.

I made fairy lights by covering white Christmas lights with pink tissue paper. I love them!

We put streamers on the ceiling.

FAVORS

I made doll sized plates to match the ones we bought, and I also made matching cups. I made cupcakes and ice cream too. The girls got to keep it all.

And we also make doll sized table chairs for the dolls to sit at the table. We used door clips.

My Mom made doll and girl aprons. She spent a long time on them and they look great. I am very happy with these. Grace will wear hers a lot.

I made pizza for the dolls, because we had pizza.

Each girl got a bandanna and my Mom made mini bandanna’s too. I also made bracelets.

ACTIVITIES

In the morning we made charm bracelets, with shrinky dink paper, and chain. I don’t have any pictures of the bracelets but I think they turned out great.

When the girls got here we decorated bags with glitter glue.

Then we baked our own treats. Because it was a Grace party, I thought that it would be fun to make our own treats. We used the aprons.

Late we hacked the stash of glow sticks and had a glow stick hunt.

We ate our macaroons and cupcakes.

Later we did our doll’s hair in the salon I set up and had a fashion show. It was fun.

Then we set up our sleeping bags.

And watched the Grace movie.

Here is a random picture of my friends fighting over the water.

And that’s all. It was great and I can’t wait to do it again! Maybe. I hope you will use this as inspiration. A lot more birthday stuff is coming. (My family knows me.)

It was very overwhelming and I got really sad afterwords, but It was fun, and I have some great memories, and some stuff to remind me of the fun.
