Tiny Birthday Party for Hally ~ Cyan's Doll

Cyan and I decided that Hally, her doll, needed a birthday. And between that and finding this set on sale at JoAnn's for $6 came the "Tiny Party". We have been planning it for months... since before her birthday party in July actually. lol! But I wasn't about to add another party into that crazy month... so we made this party for Sept and sent out the invitations (tiny ones of course) to 5 of her little friends a couple of weeks ago.

Today was the day! The Tiny Party day!

Due to a tiny mix up in invitation wording, everyone showed up an hour earlier than I thought... so I was still very much in prep mode when they got here. Luckily, little girls bearing dolls can find 'something' to do while they wait. :)

I finished up making their lunch and we got on to the party!

First we ate a snack of tiny biscotti, tiny candies and cookies in tiny gift bags, and tiny crackers with tiny cheese flowers.

Then got set with the crafts. Shrinky Dinks!

The girls all picked out which charms they wanted and I cut them out so they could color them. This was a really cool project as most of the girls had never seen these before... so they were all in awe of the magic of tiny Shrinky Dinks.

Then we ate tiny sandwiches, tiny cupcakes, and lemonade in our tiny goblets... and they sat around and has some tiny girl talk.

Then a second batch of Shrinky Dinks!

When the second batch was cool, everybody picked theirs out and we put them in a tiny gift box. Each of the girls ended up getting enough stretchy string to make a bracelet out of the Shrinky Dinks they had made, and then a necklace for their dolls as well. They had a wonderful time and I think it is so great that Cyan has such fun friends!

Happy Birthday Hally!!
