It's a Doll Sized Birthday Celebration! (Including Free Printable Banner and Goodie Bags)

It's a Party for the Dolls! (printable goodie bag from B.Nute productions)
There are some new party stylists in town! My daughter and her friend had fun yesterday putting together a party for the dolls! I created some free printable decorations and they embellished the rest. Here are shots from the party-- along with ideas for your child (and friends) to have throw their own party for their dolls.

Above is a picture of the whole festive affair-- including the free printable banner and goodie bags that match the doll-sized invitations I posted yesterday. My daughter Natalie and her friend Erica set the scene in her bedroom. Of course, the party could be set in any room, or outdoors as well.

The girls made some party hats for the dolls to add to the festivities. They used colorful scrapbook paper and ribbon to tie it on the doll's head. Here's a great blog post on Make it Do with instructions and a template on making your own party hat for a doll.

They hung the birthday banner on the wall behind the doll table. At the bottom of this post, you'll find the files to print your own doll-sized Happy Birthday banner.

A party is not complete without food, right? We made some mini-chocolate chip cookies for the festivities. I spooned out marble-sized dough to make the cookies the right size.

Every party also needs goodie bags for the dolls! These bags (free printable and instructions on how to make below) can be filled with little treasures-- beads, tiny candies, and other fun items for the dolls.

Don't forget the gifts! The girls had fun looking around the house for small boxes to wrap and use as presents. If they had more time, they would have loved to make gifts for the dolls to put inside-- string beads for a doll bracelet, create a mini-birthday card, etc. The possibilities are endless.

So, on one of those days when all you hear is, "I'm bored" or perhaps it's your daughter's actual birthday, and she's looking for something to do, why not suggest putting on a doll party!
