Doll Makin' Tea Party!!

This past Saturday we celebrated Lilly's fifth birthday with her closest friends. We had decided on a theme once I saw Crystal's post that y'all may remember me posting about here. This was a fun one!! Oh, if you want to make your own dolls, you can find the tutorial here.


Here are the dolls the girls made. I tried to make the dolls look like the girl who was making them. I thought they turned out so cute and the girls had fun with them, too!!

Here is Lilly{in the purple shirt} with her friends.


"I'm not listening." :)
These photos are not in party order, of course.



Makin' wishes, blowing out candles...

This was while the girls were eating.


Not the best picture, but this is the banner I made from old hankies. I was pleased with how it came out. We will hang it above Lilly's bed once it comes down.


The table all decorated{simply-let go of a lot of plans and ideas}. I ran out of time, otherwise, I would have written birthday wishes to Lilly on the chalkboard.


For the drinks, we had pink lemonade and hot tea. I decided not to use disposable dishes for this party.


Here is the food all ready to be eaten. We had pink cloud, cheese, fruit, pbj pockets, and chicken salad on croissants. Fun, girly, tea party food!!


The fruit was served up in my cute sherbet glasses.


Chicken salad and pbj pockets. Oh, and the wonders of photoshop and friends named Jenny. But we'll go there another day!! ;)
I loved this party and I know Lilly and her friends had fun!!
Oh, one honorable mention...I could NOT have pulled this off with out the help of my WONDERFUL, AWESOME neighbor, Brittny. She sensed the panic in my voice when I called to borrow a glue gun{because I couldn't find mine-story of my life...} and came over to help. So thank you, Brittny sooo much!! Amy, Amy, and Michelle deserve some props, too. I have wonderful friends!!

Oh how cool! I love those little dolls...I have seen many around blogland. I know the girls had to have a blast and memories were made!

Oh and the food looks so yummy!

Friends...so glad you had some help from many! It can be tedious trying to plan things. Love all the decor!
