My girl Amaiah turned five
We decided to have a doll party
Each of the guests was asked to bring their favorite baby or pet
I realized after the party that I had more fun sitting alongside her, preparing all the details during the previous week, than I had at the actual party. lol!
I’m becoming more and more a fan of tweaking the store bought invitation rather than starting from scratch. I bought these before Amaiah was born.
I just loved them so.
We used stamps and markers to fill in the details
She got ink everywhere
For the favors
I made each girl a flannel burp cloth for her baby.
Amaiah loved helping me pick out the fabric
We also made play dough that we pretended was baby food
She decided which kind of food each color looked like, stood beside me while I made the label, and then we totally argued about who got to glue them on
We gave them to the guests in these little glitter pails
Another purchase I made a long time ago
Target $1 bin
When the friends first arrived they sat and made jewelry for their baby/pet
I bought some preemie diapers and set up a diaper changing station for them.
By my count, they all changed their dolls’ diapers about six times.
For the lunch table Amaiah picked out all the decorations from guess where…Target
Brian made her favorite, Macaroni and Cheese
After lunch we played a game
The girls had to race to do a series of mom tasks:
Put on an apron
Shove diapers and a blanket in a bag
Put their baby in a stroller
Come back and unpack it all
They were laughing so hard!
The winner got this
Next came present opening
And finally, cake!
I love you sweet baby girl!
