doll sized Monster High birthday party

One of our super creative readers, Brandy, has a real treat for us today! She is going to show you how to make a Monster High themed birthday party for your American Girl dolls and their 18″ friends. I have added some fun Monster High printables to the bottom of the post, too. 

Over to Brandy!

My youngest daughter is going to have her 5th birthday soon. She wants a Monster High party. BUT, she also wants her much loved American Girls doll to be part of her special day. Hmmm….so with a little creativeness I came up with a super cute party idea that I know will make my daughter and her friends very happy. Here is how I did it:

American Girl Dolls Gone Ghoul Birthday Party Theme

Monster High Party Favor Bags

Each girl will take home a ‘Monster High Party after the Party’ gift bag. 

Monster High Party Favor Bags

Inside each bag are a Freaky Fabulous Cake, Scary Cute Cookies, Ghouls Rule Punch, plates, napkins, cups, and spoons. (Most of the food crafts I make are in servings of 6 because my daughter’s doll dining table has six chairs.)

Freaky Fabulous Cake: This cute cake was made from thick black and thin hot pink foam paper. I used a circle hand punch to make details for icing. I used a rectangular hand punch for white accents…wanted it to look a bit like a zipper. The topping décor are Monster High stickers found in the dollar bins at Target. I glued the stickers to toothpicks and pushed into foam. I placed the cake on a black paper plate cut down to size with a paper doily on top. The cake pan is the lid to a 4 inch round paper mache box painted silver.

So cute!

Monster High cookies for dolls

Scary Cute Cookies: The cookie base is made from black, pink, blue, purple foam paper the size of a quarter. For the skull icing on top I printed a sheet of many small MH skulls onto to card stock paper, cut them out, I then hot glued them to white foam. Then the white foam was cut and then glued to the cookie base. Cookies are stored in a dollar store container. The lid of the container can be used as a serving platter.

Ghouls Rule Punch: I used various one inch sized pom-poms in pink, black, blue, and purple. I included an extra spoon to use as a ladle. You could also use the pom-poms as Ghoul Rule Ice Cream. The punch is stored in a dollar store container, to also be used as a punch bowl.

Plates: I used dollar store black paper plates and cut down to doll size…about 2.5 inches round.

Napkins: I used dollar store black napkins and cute down to size…about 3.5 by 1.5 inches.

Cups: Communion Cups

Spoons: These are the sample spoons we get from out local Sam’s Club. (The sample lady was more than happy to give me a few free spoons when I told her I was going to use them for a doll craft for my daughter.)

Pink Tote: This is a rubber tote bag from the dollar store. I think the little label added the perfect accent. The MH emblem was copy and pasted from a Google search.

The doll outfits are from Etsy shop, Mini Me Dolly Divas.
