It's Party Time!
And the invitations were sent out
weeks ago. All of the little guests were
suppose to dress in costumes. No
fancy dresses here except for Allie and Allison.
Little girls parties can be so cute. Today
Allie and Allison turn 5 years old.They are
dressed in their best green dresses with matching
hats. The party apartment is still under construction as
you can see. Balloons filled with air dot the ceiling.
A few of the balloons have confetti glued to them
that says Happy Birthday!
So much more work is to be done - Oh where is
Aunt Melinda and Brenda!
As you can see a few of the balloons are already
dying. Those balloons were duds and would not blow
up properly. I used them anyway. Not all balloons
need to look the same.
The Happy Birthday banner across the window is
the same confetti that is on the balloons. The white
string is just embroidery floss. It was easy to thread
the floss thru the words. The floss is held up at the
window corners with tacky wax. No problem if I
decide to remove it.
The little guests are starting to arrive. Allie has her
arm up greeting them. As you are aware the little
ladies are dressed up in whatever
they wanted to wear. No special attire for them.
The first little lady to barrel inside is named Amanda.
She is dressed as Dorothy of the 'Wizard of Oz' movie
Amanda has waited impatiently for this party. She is the
one with the white hair in case you havent seen the movie.
Amanda and the others can hardly wait to play. They have
by-passed the main dining table in favor of the play table.
Maybe those 2 want to sit there.
The little lady that you can only see partway that is
dressed in brown. Her name is Brandi. Brandi is dressed
up as the scarecrow in the 'Wizard of Oz' movie. She is
so excited to be here!
Here is the back of Brandi - do you see her tail. The
little lady behind Brandi is Kelly. Kelly is a cute little
pink fairy. She is wearing her Halloween costume.
Close ups of Brandi and Kelly.
The sweet little lady in the wedding dress is Jessica.
She is saying 'hello' to everyone. Jessica is the last to arrive.
The 2 little children at the table are Elizabeth's
twins that you havent seen. One is a boy named
Hardy and the little girl is Lisa. No body is watching
them! Trouble could be brewing here.
Aunt Brenda has been working very hard to get things started.
The tablecloth, plates and cake are already on the table along
with a few lollipops. Only one glass of milk is there. Surely
there are more to come. Lets just hope that Hardy does
not get hold of it and dump that milk all over the tablecloth.
So the table is not completely set up yet. The silverware
isnt on the table yet.
You might think that the cake is upside down - but it
isn't.. It is turned so the birthday girls can stand on the chairs
while they blow out the candles. Oh my gosh - Aunt Brenda
hasn't put the candles on the cake yet!
Aunt Brenda sure is running behind.
The plates are printables from jennifers Printables
website. I looked on her blog for Barbie wallpaper but I
couldnt find it. I ended up using a flowered wallpaper for
the plates. After I cut the plates out - they looked so
flat. I bent them up on some of the sides. Still I do not
like how they turned out. I guess printies are not for
me. I do have some ideas of how to change it. But that
will be a future project.
A close up of the Birthday Cake. It is chocolate on the
inside with white Vanilla frosting. Aunt Brenda made the
This pic shows a country style apron just right for
Elizabeth's apartment. It works well in this space.
You can see the top of the little dollhouse of where I
sandpapered the top of it - long, long ago.
Allison stands over by the bunk-beds. The girls
are so happy that everyone showed up for their party.Aunt
Melinda is collecting the presents. Elizabeth doesnt
feel very well and Hank is still fussy. Thank goodness
that her twin sisters Melinda and Brenda are here to
give her a hand with things.
A couple of extra chairs - actually they are small
childrens rocking chairs. Just waiting for some
child to sit on them.
A closer look at Aunt Melinda. She looks like she is
having fun - doesnt she. (I really do like these vinyl
dolls. They twist and turn, their legs move, their heads
\turn. I think they are better than my porcelain dolls).
Aunt Melinda thinks to herself -
Oh my where am I going to put those presents?
Aunt Brenda still has not gotten it all together yet.
The tablecloth is pink tissue paper that I cut to size.
Underneath it I cut a piece of white cardboard. It just
sits there and its there because the table looked dark
under the pink tissue paper. The white cardboard
underneath brightens it up some.
Here is the little table where some of the little
ladies are going to eat. Of course Pinky the bear
already has her spot picked out. The 4th chair to the
little table set broke. It is now a stool.
This picture might be a little blurry - but it is here
for you to be able to see the inside of the little dollhouse.
See the christmas tree on the bottom floor.
There's Aunt Brenda. Right now she is stressing out.
The cute little blond haired lady in purple moved out
of the way when she came in the door. She is dressed
as a movie star. See her pretty pink lipstick. Her name is
Marge Damon. She is hoping that someone will see
her resemblance to the actress 'Kate Winslet' - one of
her favorite actresses of the movie Titanic.
The butcher block had to be moved into the bedroom.
There simply just was not enough room.
Oh my - there are some tumblers int he sink that need
Aunt Brenda is stressing out moreso now. Still more
work to be done. As you can see - Melinda and Brenda
are identical twins. However they do not always dress
or wear their hair the same. But they are always
there to help their older sister Elizabeth. I think
Elizabeth is a lucky woman to have such good sisters
that do not mind helping her.
Time to get the milk out and fill up some glasses.
Hope you like the party. Come join in.
Thanksfor visiting me.
Come back soon.
