lily: paper doll party!

Today's party is my own daughters.. I didn't want to wait any longer to post pictures.

I have to say, I love the way Lily's party turned out. It was everything I hoped it would be, and every guest showed up! I couldn't have been happier. I have received more thank you notes (from Lily) in the last 4 days than I have in my entire life. She was SO happy. It made the whole thing worth it. Here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. I'm happy to give all my sources.

The invite. The back had pink dresses with all the info.

Some of the details and the cute birthday girl. (click to view larger)

The table setting (pre-food)

This banner was a last minute decision. I was going to make a big fancy one and ran out of time. I flattened the cupcake papers, printed the letters for happy birthday on my computer and sized them to fit the center circle. It turned out perfect!

The cupcake tower. I hand-cut paper doll dresses and attached them to toothpicks.

My mom found this paper doll fabric and made an apron for each girl. After their lunch, each girl was outfitted with an apron, glue stick, scissors and all the paper/embellishments they could ever want. We had pre-cut large paper dolls and we put them to work designing their own outfit. The girls LOVED it and spent a good 30-40 minutes cutting and gluing.

Some of the paper doll designs.

Finally the take home (in addition to the apron, scissors and glue). I found these gift card boxes at Michaels. I hand cut paper dolls and their outfits and stuck them to an adhesive magnet sheet. Each girl went home with their own magnetic paper doll and outfits. (tutorial here).
