A Tiny Party

So, yes, her party was in May, but I'm a tad behind (chronologically speaking).  So here are a few pics from Girlie's Tiny/American Girl party.  She had so much fun with all her friends and their dolls.  Above, I baked her cakes in tin cans and presented them on cupcake stands.

Tiny fruit kabobs on toothpicks

The tiny buffet.  Bite-sized sub sandwiches made with breadstick 'hoagies', tiny lunchmeats and cheeses, lettuce, pearl onions and grape tomatoes.  Also on the menu: tiny tacos, small cinnamon rolls, petite cupcakes, tiny milkshakes.

The cinnamon rolls were made from crescent roll dough. Who doesn't love a guilt-free cinnamon roll?

Slices of personal-sized watermelon, anyone?

Tiny drinks in bathroom-sized cups and half straws.

The photo booth was a big hit.  These girls like to put on a show. :) The backdrop was a striped sheet.

The birthday girl with a good friend from school.

They made doll bracelets from tiny beads, and paper flowers (from an American Girl Crafts kit).
I forgot to take a picture of the goodie bags, but they were tiny tote bags with a tiny paint set, erasers that look like little food (Target), miniature composition books, pencils, ...I can't remember what else.  It's been too long...)

J made miniature ice cream cones with caramel Bugles "cones" and tiny cartons of ice cream (we had big ones for back up).

"Just my size!" she thinks.

Happy Birthday (in May) to my own sweet American Girl!  The loveliest person I know.
