American Girl Inspired Birthday Party

American Girl Party

My little sisters are IN LOVE with American Girl, so naturally we HAD to throw them an American Girl Inspired Birthday Party for their 9th birthday! It was so much fun! Here is our step-by-step tutorial on how to throw your very own!

For starters, we welcomed guests with their own pair of flip-flops and a customized welcome sign! We purchased the bucket and vase at Target and the flip-flops at Michael's!

The menu included tater tot skewers, mac 'n cheese cups, and star-shaped grilled cheeses! We served the mac 'n cheese in pink and white polka dot candy cups from Petite Party Studio.

We displayed the drinks on these DIY trays and adorned them with labels and flags! We made my little sister's pop for everyone! We call it Taylor's Pop.

We set the table with fuchsia paper plates, aqua melamine plates, pink + white polka dot napkins, and aqua placemats from Target. We grabbed up wooden cutlery from Petite Party Studio and stamped the individual pieces with pink polka dots for some extra flair!

We asked our little sisters to create a playlist for the party! I hate to admit it, but there are def some of my favs in here. Can we say Bieber + Carly Rae?! Whoo hoo!

We topped our meringue cookies with fuchsia and aqua dots of frosting to make them festive, and our amazing baking contributor, Christa Quiroz made these Oreo Cake Pops! My fiancΓ© could not stop eating them. Shhh ... neither could I!
