Maren and I were chosen to host an American Girl Crafts House Party and this morning was our event. House Party is a website that partners with different companies to get the word out about their products by introducing them at parties. Anybody can apply to be a host and it's completely free! Depending on what demographic the sponsor is looking for, you may be chosen to host a party and you receive a fun Party Pack with all kinds of goodies to share with your friends. This particular party was sponsored by American Girl Crafts and we were thrilled to be chosen as hosts! Maren has an American Girl doll AND she loves to do arts and crafts by herself and with friends, so it was a perfect fit for her.
Our Party Pack was filled with these fantastic My Life Scrap & Stuff books, one for each party guest.
We invited our guests to bring their American Girl dollies with them to the party. Some of the girls brought more than one doll--we had quite the crowd at the doll tea party!
The girls happily created and worked on their books.
For food and decorations, we were inspired by this cute paper tablecloth I had stashed away with my party supplies.
For food, we stuck with a 'tiny' theme in honor of our dollies. I made tiny sandwiches by cutting peanut butter sandwiches into small triangles and securing them with jeweled toothpicks.
I'm delighted that we were chosen to host this House Party and to familiarize ourselves more with American Girl Crafts. I know our party guests loved their Scrap & Stuff books and had so much fun working on them today. I love that they're a project the girls can continue to work on and a way for them to explore their creativity!
