My little Madie loves baby dolls. She always has a doll in tow. So I knew this had to be the theme for her 4th birthday party.
Pink polka-dots with a bit of vintage. I got the party paper wears at a great discount online site. I used to make the flower tissue puffs but you can get them in a two pack at hobby lobby for the same price at buying tissue paper. So its a time saver. I made the garland from dollies. Just fold in half and string on baby yarn. The baby clip art printables I ordered as a download from Esty. I'm totally doing this again instead of trying to make my own. I had never made garland with strips of fabric before. It was cute but a bit time consuming.
I saw the watermelon baby carriage on Pinterest. It was pretty easy to do if you have done a watermelon basket before. You just use toothpicks to hold the wheels and handle in place. I served a simple snack - fruit and animal crackers (I had not had animal crackers in forever and could not stop eating them myself!) Cupcakes were from the box - Strawberry. I used to try homemade but they never seemed to be as good as the box. Let me know if you have a great recipe!
I set up three stations that the our guest could play at with their baby dolls. We also decorted "diaper bags" and had a stroller race.
I made baby diapers from patterned felt and gave the guest baby doll bottles that said, "You're a doll! Thanks for coming to my party."
It was the sweetest party ever! Madie loved playing babies with her friends and I loved watching the girls play too. If you have a daughter who loves playing babies, I would totally recommend this party theme.
