 Say hello to Lavender. She's the beloved doll of our 6 year old daughter and I'm pretty sure she has more clothes than I do. Our daughter's sweet and incredibly talented Grandmother gave this darling doll to her along with several beautifully handmade dresses. 
We have a valentine party for our little one and her friends every year and this year we wanted to invite the dolls along too! Little girls and their dolls came over for an afternoon of cookies, crafts and fun!


First order of business was to dress the doll in a pretty tea party outfit. So many lovely gowns to choose from! 

Look at those tiny heart pockets! So sweet!




Lavender is now dressed in her tea party finery and is ready to partake in some delicious tea party fare. 


Pink milk in vintage milk bottles and beautiful valentine cookies were on the menu for the afternoon soiree.

These gorgeous cookies from my cousin Leigh ( Baby Gabey Cookies) were so beautifully detailed, it was hard to bite into them! Tiny ruffled dresses, mini cakes with delicate edible flowers and classic valentine hearts were the perfect cuisine for afternoon tea.









Who doesn't love to play with playdough? It's pretty much a staple at any party I throw when kids are involved. I made strawberry scented cloud dough and placed it in cute pails and attached mini rolling pins to the top. 

You can download the You're So A "Doh" Able Valentine printable HERE.

If you haven't made cloud dough yet, I highly recommend it. It's so soft and smells heavenly....we could play with it for hours! 


The girls each received green mini gift boxes as take home favors. I attached tiny heart balloons to the gift box with pink clothespins and added a bit of polka dot ribbon. 



Inside the gift boxes were pretty candy favor containers filled with festive heart beads for the girls to make their own valentine bracelets.


The party finished up with the girls putting together these adorable cookie magnet crafts. Don't they look good enough to eat?!



I hope you enjoyed our Dolly and Me Tea Party, I know the girls and their dolls certainly did!
