Dolly and Me Tea

We have concluded the final piece of birthday celebration with Nora's friend party.  She choose a Tea Party with 7 of her friends and their favorite dolls.  We went all girl and all pink with this one.  I don't think our house has seen this much pink in all 9 years of having girls but it was fun to decorate and be girly for a change. side note: I got some adorable photos of all the girls together with their dolls and their "dance party" but I am not comfortable posting photos online of kids if I don't know their parents are okay with it so I had to select from the other photos instead. 

We hosted the tea party up in the playroom loft.  The big girls had their table and the dolls had their own.  Here is May, Nora's doll, all ready for her friends to arrive.  Each doll had her own place setting complete with cake, pie, napkin and lemonade.
And the big girls' table

The guests of honor!  The girls made jewelry for their dolls.  Maddy helped with a few hair-dos on the dolls along with "hello my name is...." nametags for each doll to wear. 

The cake was not my finest of productions but luckily 7 year old girls are fairly easily impressed!

The dolls enjoyed their teaparty time too

Wii Dance Party was a big hit and could have kept them entertained for hours I think!  Best party activity ever!  None of the girls used controllers we would just put the song on and let them go.
We ended the party with more tea while decorating picture frames with a group photo of the whole gang.  Overall this was a very successful and fairly easy party to manage.  Treat bags consisted of the girls taking home the place setting for the dolls complete with mini-eraser cakes and pies and the lemonade drink along with a mini i-phone eraser for the dolls and then each girl got to choose one of the primrose centerpieces to take home.
