Kristi of SaucyPants knows how to make a party simple enough for the crafters, fun for the guests & impressive to everyone! Her American Girl Birthday Party is simple & sweet with meringue desserts, a pink & blue kids tablescape on the patio + a fun shared playlist with favorites like Justin Bieber & Carly Rae ;)
PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:
– Skewered tater tots, mac-n-cheese cups & star shaped grilled cheese sandwiches
– Pink confetti utensils, blue decorative plates & pink name cards with butterflies
– A personalized welcome sign and flip flop favors for each guest
– A white cake with red stars and a pretty blue ribbon
PARTY DETAILS, as told by Kristi…
We asked our little sisters to create a playlist for the party! I hate to admit it, but there are def some of my favs in here. Can we say Bieber + Carly Rae?! Whoo hoo!
We set the table with fuchsia paper plates, aqua melamine plates, pink + white polka dot napkins, and aqua placemats from Target. We grabbed up wooden cutlery from Petite Party Studio and stamped the individual pieces with pink polka dots for some extra flair!
FOOD & DRINKS
The menu included tater tot skewers, mac ‘n cheese cups, and star-shaped grilled cheeses! We served the mac ‘n cheese in pink and white polka dot candy cups from Petite Party Studio. We displayed the drinks on these DIY trays and adorned them with labels and flags! We made my little sister’s pop for everyone! We call it Taylor’s Pop.
We topped our meringue cookies with fuchsia and aqua dots of frosting to make them festive, and our amazing baking contributor, Christa Quiroz made these Oreo Cake Pops! My fiancé could not stop eating them. Shhh … neither could I!
AND THE CAKE! OMG THE CAKE! How beautiful is this?! One of our other fav bakers here in AZ made this, Tammie Coe Cakes. She is so talented. You have to try her red velvet! Ah-mazing!
