~ Birthday Party ~ Americal Girl Doll Party & Tutorial how to make Pinwheels

How cuter can this get? A party for you and your doll. Beth from Beth Kruse Custom Creations  styled this adorable American Girl Doll party for her daughter Ella's 7th birthday and she sure did and amazing job.

Some of my favorite details of this gorgeous party incude the petite decorations and accessories for the both girls and their dollies like the Pinwheels, hair barrettes, bracelets and birthday hats.  Beth is also sharing with us a tutorial she put together on how to made the paper pinwheels.

Here are all the gorgeous details of this party, as told by Beth:

"Every day, at some point, you can catch my daughter flipping through the American Girl doll catalog. So for her 7th birthday, we decided to do an American Girl Doll Party.
Her favorite color is blue so we picked the colors navy, hot pink and teal. We also used the american girl logo for inspiration and incorporated stars. Because we were doing it outside, I thought pinwheels and bunting would be great decorations"

"I wanted the dessert table to be set up out in our yard. It rained all day so we had to wait until the last minute to set it up.  The large ella banner was cut using the cricut and then I used streamers to ruffle the background"

Beth decorated mini-cupcakes with tall tiny flags she made using wood skewers and paper.
 She wrapped the licorice in bunches and made gorgeous cupcake toppers for the chocolate frosted cupcakes. 

Some other sweet treats were the mini-poptarts on a stick {Beth got the recipe from here}, Swirly suckers for girls and pretend suckers for dolls {made by pippaloo} and cookies wrapped with bakers twine. 

Lemonade Cans -A favorite of the birthday girl

"American girl wraps for cans -could also be made for water bottles-
{make them waterproof by using packing tape!} The girls LOVED these.
They had so much fun finding 'their' doll"

Pinwheels for girls and dolls {how to make pinwheels} and goodie bags

"Matching pinwheel barrettes I made for the birthday girl, her sister and their dolls and
mini plates and cups for the dolls {american girl party supplies from joann fabrics}
I thought these were kind of pricey, but they were a favorite of the girls.
They were all pretending that their dolls were eating too!"

Birthday hats for the dolls

"The party went late so that we could watch a movie outside with a projector so we also used a lot of tiki torches.  The yard looked so pretty!"

Thanks Beth for sharing with us and putting together that wonderful tutorial.

  2. I love the your doll party it is a great idea. I planned a doll party for my daughter. I made the table into a doll house playhouse and decorated my baking rack like a doll house complete with a roof and chimney. You can see the photos on my blog at or my facebook page, Creative Playhouse.
