We recently were a part of the most beautiful 5th birthday party at Sorelle Bakery in Vaughan, one of our favourite places to have a beading party. The mom was so amazing to work with and she created such a special and unforgettable 5th birthday party for her daughter.
The theme of the party was a magical unicorn tea party, and it truly was magical. The girls had an exquisite tea party with beautiful tea cups, sandwiches and treats, then they made bracelets with a unicorn charm. The mom decorated with rose gold and unicorn decor, cakes and cupcakes and everything was captured by one of our favourite photographers, by aliya.
It was such an honour to be a part of such a special party. Thank you for letting us be a part of your magical day!
We do so many amazing birthday parties such as a American Girl birthday tea party that we recently did in Oakville, Ontario. This mom had so many easy and craft DIY ideas that we just had to pass on.
The mom invited all the guests to bring their favourite doll. The entire party was planned with fun activities incorporating the dolls. The girls made friendship bracelets with matching necklaces for their dolls which became the party loot bag.
Then the mom set up the cutest tea party, with seating for all the girls and their dolls. She made heart shaped sandwiches inspired by this blog post. The mom also made a cake with the AG star on it and then added a tiara, such a simple idea but with so much impact. The mom made star sugar cookies ahead of time using this recipe and then the girls decorated them and took them home as a loot bag.
It was one of the cutest parties and the girls all had such a great time! For more American Girl party ideas check out our American Girl blog post.
In ten years of providing jewelry making birthday parties, we have been to many dance themed birthday parties. This is no surprise since many of our little beaders dance and often invite their whole dance group to their birthday parties.
When doing a dance themed party the first thing you do is design your invitation. There are so many beautiful dance invitations, but the tulle invitations are our favourite, and here is a video showing you how to make it.
The decor for a dance and/or ballet themed party is so beautiful. Lots of pink tulle, gold sparkles, and ballet dancer cutouts. You can make pink tulle table skirts and chair covers to make the party even more magical.
Food at a dance and/or ballet themed party is all pink and cream with gold accents. Pink cupcakes with gold sprinkles, pink macaroons, parfaits, white bread with pink cream cheese, and pink lemonade.
Activities for your dance themed party can include musical chairs, hot potato, or freeze dance to ballet music, making bracelets using pinks and creams with a dance charm. Decorating your down dance bag, or the girls can create their own dance and preform it at the end of the party.
We hope we inspired you with our dance party ideas. Comment with any ideas of your own. Have a great party!
Last spring, after receiving so many requests for sparkly beads, we decided to create our sparkliest package yet and we are so excited to announce that this package, our fancy bracelet package, is a huge hit! We are very proud to say that our little beaders are loving it and it has become our most requested package.
One of our favourite parts of doing what we do is seeing the expressions of absolute delight when the guests at our parties see what they are making, and see all the beads and charms that they get to work with.
Our little beaders (and their moms!) love the wide selection of charms, such as unicorn, fairy, ballet, hearts, snowflakes and even sport themed charms. We made this package with a girl's hockey theme and they were so excited to have beautiful sparkly bracelet with a cool hockey charm.
Our biggest reward is seeing the joy that our service brings. If you or your little crafter have a party theme in mind, let us know and we can order charms in to match your party theme.
Thank you to all of our wonderful customers for allowing us to keep doing what we do.
My 6 soon to be 7 year old daughter has been asking for a slumber party for her 7th birthday.
I don't think that her friends (and their moms) would be ready for that yet, and I don't think I am ready to have 15 7 year olds sleeping at over at our house.
So I decided this year to throw her a mock slumber birthday party so she can have still have some slumber party fun.
My daughter is really into American Girl and Baby Alive dolls, so to go with the theme of the party, we are asking each guest to arrive in their fanciest pajamas and to bring their favourite doll.
After the guests arrive, our first activity is going to be beading of course. Each girl is going to make matching necklaces for herself and her doll. We are going to do our Beading Buds package I.
After that we are going to make and eat our own pizzas. For some additional fun activity ideas check out our pinterest board here.
Next we are going to have some slumber party fun. We are going to make facemasks, paint nails, give the girls and their dolls makeovers using make-up and give the girls all the best hairsyles that we can dream up. We will also play some sleepover party games. For ideas click here.
Finally we are going to end off the party with a movie. Since we are having this party in November, it should be dark early enough for the girls to feel like it is a real slumber party.
I am so excited to start putting all the pieces of this party together. We will keep you posted to see how it went! Visit our pinterest board for more mock slumber birthday party fun.
We recently did a photoshoot with Babywisp to help promote some of the new packages that we are offering.
On a beautiful summer day we invited a few girls that love crafts and jewellery making, and we spent a lovely afternoon making jewellery.
The girls did such a wonderful job and their necklaces were absolutely gorgeous.
One of our little beaders brought her American Girl doll to the photoshoot and decided to make matching Frozen Elsa necklaces for herself and for her doll. We love how she and her doll are wearing matching Babywisp hairclips.
In the past we have done so many American Girl Beading Buds birthday parties where all the girls made matching necklaces with their dolls, and we are always so happy to offer this service.
Another one of our little beaders loves mermaids and so she made a mermaid themed pearl necklace using purple and teal glass pearls.
She wanted to wear the necklace right away, and has requested that we come to her birthday party to do our Mermaid Princess Package. She also loved her beautiful Babywisp aquamarine hairbow and has been wearing it ever since.
We had such a wonderful time with our little models, and we hope that they enjoy their new necklaces.
One of the best parts of having a Beading Buds birthday party is that the jewelry made becomes the lootbag, but sometimes moms like to buy something extra for the girls to take home from the party. Baby Wisp offers great discounts on bulk purchases so you can fill up lootbags with quality products at a reasonable price! Are you one of those moms who don't want to give out plasticky junk or unhealthy candies? Here's a great alternative!! Baby Wisp now offers bulk discounts on products specifically for lootbag goodies! You can get unique lootbag items for a child's birthday party to give out at your little girl's party that won't get thrown out as soon as you give it out. To see their newest products click here.
We have done many American Girl Beading Birthday Parties in the past, and beading really is the perfect complement to an American Girl Birthday Party. Check out our American Girl Party Package.
At many of our parties, the girls make matching necklaces for themselves and their dolls with a special heart or snowflake charm.
Here are some tips and tricks to help make your American Girl Beading Birthday Party extra special.
Party Decor: There are two great options for the party decor. Option one is to make everything pink. Option 2 is to go with the American girl colours, red and white and the star shape. Stack American Girl doll boxes as a centerpiece, put up red and white tissue paper flowers. Hang red and white stars, cut out star shapes and hang them on the walls. Make your own American Girl photo booth, click here for some more party decor ideas.
Party Food: Cut sandwiches and fruit into star shapes and serve mini hamburgers and mini hotdogs, red punch and red velvet cupcakes. A fun idea is to have a dessert table with all red candy such as licorice and gumballs, red candy apples, marshmallows, star shaped cookies and and desserts on it.
Birthday Cake: Most birthday cakes are red with white stars on them, check out our pinterest page here for some ideas.
Party Activities: A fun idea is for the girls to make friendship necklaces or bracelets for themselves and then a matching necklace for their doll. Another idea is for the girls to make their own friendship necklaces, and then for the birthday mom to give each girl a pre-made regular bracelet that they can put on their doll so that the doll have friendship necklaces too. This can be the party activity and the loot bag. Click here to see our party packages.
Once the jewelry is made, other fun activities are American Girl Bingo, click here for a printable. Another fun idea is to play usual party games (such as freeze dance, duck duck goose, etc) but include the dolls in the games.
