American Girl Party. We all want fun parties for our kids, and we don’t want to arrive empty-handed at somebody else’s. But, personally, I have a toy room full of toys that my kids don’t play with. Toys eventually break and, because most are non-recyclable, end up in the landfills. This is why I have started insisting that no gifts be brought to my own kids’ birthday parties. It can be tricky to sell your child on this, especially if they are used to getting gifts at their parties. But with a little encouragement you might be surprised as how well it goes over. If you feel more comfortable, let the kids who are coming choose if they would like to bring a small donation to a charity, such as an animal shelter. Why not try it at your next party? Who knows, you might just start a trend in your neighborhood.

American Girl Party. This party was set in an old ice house and had a very pioneer, barn like feel. It was perfect. Try looking for a cool place to host your next party that compliments the theme. Also, take advantage of what’s included with the rental. This place had a small kitchen, tables and chairs, and nearby bathrooms.

pioneer 4chairs

I decided to make my own chair ties for this American Girl Party so that I could coordinate the party colors, bring in more of a floral theme, and to incorporate a bit of an old fashioned element. I bought this fabric on Etsy from Christa at Sew Good Fabric.

directions:

1. You will need: fabric, pinking shears, and a ruler. I like to use a quilter’s self healing grid with a lip edge ruler to measure. For fabric I bought Tanya Whelan: Darla Yellow Rosie Dot, Alexander Henry: White Kitty Calico Floral, and Heather Bailey: Pop Garden Rose Peonies. Since these fabrics are already 56″ wide, I based how much I bought on how many ties I wanted to make. My ties measure 7″ x 56″ and one yard make 5 chair ties.
2. I used my quilters ruler to draw a line with a pencil on the back side of the fabric.
3. With my pinking shears I cut along the pencil line. Pinking shears will make it so that the fabric doesn’t unravel.
4. Then I washed the chair ties, dried them, trimmed the extra strings off, and ironed them. I wanted the frayed edges since I was going for a country type look.

I used the fabric scraps to make smaller fabric “ribbons” to tie up the paper favor bags.

And I bought two other fabrics in different florals to make a coordinating banner, Heather Bailey: Pop Garden Turquoise Pop Daisy & Tanya Whelan: Darla Rose in Fuchsia.

pioneer 6cake

For this American Girl Party I wanted to do a simple cake, emphasizing the birthday girls age. This is the cake stand that I used at this party. It’s from the Martha Stewart Collection and I stumbled across it at Macy’s one day when I was frantically looking for a last minute stand for another party (with two of my kids in tow mind you–not a great idea around a bunch of breakable items). I bought this one too, since I couldn’t resist the color and I knew I’d need one for this party anyway.

American Girl Party. Oh, pioneer games. I think we tend to forget the old standbys that our parents’ used at our parties. But kids now-a-days can still love the games we used to play, just give them a chance. Here’s a game we played at this party: The Clothes Pin Drop. (I tracked down the old style clothes pins and some jars.) Stand up straight and hold the clothes pin to your nose. Drop the pin from you nose and try to get it into the jar. I had three different sized jars so it was easy and challenging.

But don’t forget other classics that also work great as impromptu time fillers like Duck Duck Goose, I Had a Little Doggie, London Bridges, Ring Around the Rosies, Simon Says, Musical Chairs, Stuck in the Mud and Freeze Tag.
