American Girl Birthday Party

Today's party was an American Girl party for my daughter.  We had so much fun planning it.  I have a friend who sells close to my heart.  She came and did scrapbooks with the girls.  Each girl went home with a full scrapbook of 15 pages.  I took pictures of each of their dolls. 

This was the table setup for the food.  I found some great after Christmas sales and got some red things just to add some color.  The red trees were $1.50!!  I also used a lot of stars.
This was the cake..a shopping bag.  so cute!!!

Jello push pops.  I found these at a party store, you can fill them with anything!
Star Fruit, not for taste only for looks!!!
The table for the girls to sit at.  Each girl had a place setting for them and for their doll.  They loved it.
 A close up of the place setting.
 She loves American Girl!!

An afternoon in Paris

My latest party....My sister lives far away from me but I was still able to help her with this.  I did some of the leg work but she pulled it off in style!!  Of course, all the paper products were made with my cricut.  Here is the invitation:
My sister did an amazing job with the table, food, and decor.  Here is what the kids first saw when they came to the party.  For the streamers, she twisted them and hung them on a fishing wire.  so cute!!

She also got some fabric and made bows on all the chairs.  All the colors were red, blue, and yellow. 

All of the eifel towers were made using the cricut.  The cartridge I used makes 3d items.  She used different colored plates to make it more awesome!!  I made some papers and she glued them on mason jars.  

 How awesome are these???  She just took some felt and ribbon and walla..coats for each girl.  The hats?  They are yellow paper plates and bowls.  so easy!!
 She made cupcakes and then she made pinwheels to go on top.  So adorable.
 The table.  I made some cute signs, she added some great stuff from around her house, and some red fabric for the table. 
 Even the juice was red and blue!!!
 The end of the party:  the goodie bag.  She filled them with all things red, blue, and yellow.  The best part:  crayons.  They were purchased on etsy, they are crayons melted into shapes.  So cute.

The wheels on the bus go round and round

Our latest party was a Wheels on the bus party.  It was for a 2 year old.  This toddler is totally infatuated with the song "The Wheels on the Bus" so it seemed natural to do a party for her with that theme.  We had so much fun with this theme.  It is an unusual theme, so everything was hand made.  The cricut got a serious workout with this party! 
The main table.  The red, yellow, and green candies resembled a stop light.  The "road" was roof tiles that I got from a hardware store and just cut up. 
This was her invitation.  I used the Doodlecharms cartridge from cricut.  The invitation is shown here on our roof tile road.
 This was on the front door and greeted the guests as they arrived.

Napkins and napkin rings.  Buses of course!!
 We used verses from the song to label items on the tables.  The first bucket had bus candy suckers that I made, those were the goodie bags.  The other bucket is chocolate coins.
Naturally, the water bottles were "the wipers on the bus go swish swish swish". 

Both of these resembled stop lights.  The fruit kabobs and peppers.
The bus cake.  Also made were wheel cupcakes.  The bus was mainly fondant with some gumpaste accents.
 We made banners using the cricut and some cricut software for the computer. 

I made a giant bus for the kids to play in.  I used large appliance boxes and yellow wrapping paper.
She loved her bus party!!
