Make Her Birthday the Best YetCelebration
February 1, 2016
Not close enough to one of our many locations? Don’t fret! Beyond giving the perfect presents, you can make her doll dreams come true right in your own home. As the party planning gets started, try these ideas to make her day fan-official.
Decorate the party space in American Girl’s signature berry color. Balloons, cups, napkins, and centerpieces will be eye-popping pretty in our favorite hue.
An American Girl party wouldn’t be complete if dolls weren’t in attendance. Encourage the darling duos to dress alike. And make sure each girl’s mini-me feels welcome by serving birthday treats in girl- and doll-size portions.
Follow the design of the American Girl Cafe located at our flagship stores, and pair up the berry with black-and-white striped tablecloths and paper plates.
If you already have an American Girl fan in, then you’re sure to have a few of our beautiful boxes. Instead of letting them sit in the closet, use them to create decorative levels on a buffet table so that food served sits beautifully at different heights.
Is your daughter a fan of Kit? Or is Julie her fave? Or maybe she’s all about the newest girl, MaryEllen? Whomever she loves most, let the BeForever character’s historical story set the scene of the party. Let guests know the era of the event and ask them to dress up to match or provide fun props for them to wear when they arrive.
