Okay, I’m finally featuring the Raggedy Ann party photo shoot that I did with Nicole Hill Gerulat. You might recognize some of these photos from the top of my website. Since there are so many details in this fun party, I’ll slowly be walking you through everything over the next two weeks. So keep checking back.

First, I wanted to focus a LOT on the colors red and aqua for this party. I love Raggedy Ann, and I didn’t want to commercialize this party by throwing in too much cheesy stuff. I knew that color would be the most important feature instead, and necessary to tie the whole thing together. Remember: a great color palate is essential to every party for a cohesive feel.

It was almost too easy coming up with different treats for this party. This is definitely more than enough sweet stuff, but I knew it would photograph well. Here’s the scoop on how I made everything and where I bought it from.

These chocolates are from a local favorite, Hatch Family Chocolates. A red box from Xpedx and an aqua colored ribbon finish it off.

The directions to make this charming lollipop stand are found here. And I bought the red lollipops from Hammond’s Candies.

Check your local health food or grocery store for some yummy kettle corn. I put a generous scoop of it in cellophane bags and tied them up with some cute ribbon. They sit atop a vintage plate I found at a nearby thrift store.

These cute jars were an awesome find at Tai Pan Trading and I couldn’t resist filling them up with sour cherry balls. Tie a contrasting ribbon (also from Tai Pan Trading) for the perfect color combination.

Tomorrow I’ll show you part 2, the rest of the goodies from this party. And you won’t want to miss a single photo from this party, so click on the Raggedy Ann Party tag below to see all of the party posts.





Yesterday I showed you part 1 of the yummy treats from the Raggedy Ann party. Here are all the details on the rest of the goodies.

I bought some colored taffy from Taffy Town (raspberry and strawberry) and put it in cellophane bags. Check out that cute red ribbon (sold at most big box and craft stores). The taffy bags sit atop a vintage plate from a nearby thrift store.

No Raggedy Ann party is complete without the famous “I love you” heart, shown here as a sugar cookie. Find a local bakery or cookie specialist to make some for you. Eileen Romney hooked me up.

These are vegan coconut cupcakes from Cakewalk Baking Company, with heart shape toppers made by me from leftover paper banner scraps. You can see a simple cupcake topper tutorial here. The vibrant red cupcake liners are from Bake It Pretty and the red cake stand is a Martha Stewart from Macy’s.

The flowers for this party also match the color scheme. The beautiful and talented Megan Dunford of Persimmon Floral made the two arrangements that I used. She had the genius idea of wrapping the vases in scrapbooking paper and using paper flowers as well. If you look closely at both pictures, you can see all of the different paper flowers that she crafted.

I’m not a florist, but I think the flowers in the arrangements are: white tulips, red spray roses, red carnations, and white stock. And I think Megan painted some china berries white and put them in there too. The paper flowers have a button in the center with floral wire fed through and twisted to make a wire stem.

When adding flowers to a party think outside the box and try adding a touch of whimsy, just for fun.

My sweet mother made the cute little 10″ Raggedy Ann dolls for this party. I found fabric for the dolls’ dresses at local fabric stores. I guess the doll pattern is discontinued, but you can still find some floating around the internet–like here.


If you are struggling coming up with a party theme, look to the favorite books and toys of your childhood. You never know, they just might make a comeback.
