{Vendor Loving} for American Girl Birthday TEA

I wanted to share a few peeks with you today of the party that I am (hopefully) going to have all ready to post by next week! Life has been crazy these last couple of weeks & my superman cape is at the cleaners right now. ;)


I also wanted to take a moment to highlight & give a shout-out to the AMAZING & very generous people they wanted to collaborate with me on this party or people I bought items from. I just felt like they should have the SPOTLIGHT before I posted about the party as they so deserve it! =)

I can.NOT.wait. until I get to share all of these amazing people's work with you for this party, but wanted to pause to give them some LOVE & a huge THANK YOU for rocking my world!!! xoxoxo . . . we have:

~ Sheri from Blondie's Treats ~

She designed these amazing cakepops that were such a hit with everyone! The teacups & the birds matched perfectly & did I mention they were chocolate? Oh yeah ;)

~ Erin from Whip It Good Cookies ~


Erin happens to be one of my newest members on my blog TEAM, so I asked her if she was up for the challenge of making cookies to match  + making cookies for the girls + the dolls. She created these masterpieces plus made a whole separate batch that were "doll size" . . .just wait until you see them!
And did I mention they tasted sooooo good!

Jenny from Craft That Party ~

I had mentioned to Jenny when I was designing her logo & blog for her, that I wanted her to 'pencil me in' her schedule, so she could paint me a "girl & her dollie" pegs for my daughter's upcoming birthday party. How cute did these turn out? She did a fabulous job & I love the fact that you can use these little pegs anywhere . . . but I chose to put them on the cake. It was the PERFECT accent piece!


~ Melissa from Truly Chic Inspirations

Melissa owns a little shop called Tag Me Chic that has some amazing finds that she either makes or finds & sells in her shop. So when I spied these bad boys I knew they would be PERFECT for this party. She loves all things vintage & since I was "trying" to make this party modern-vintage, I knew checking her shop was on the list and these berry baskets were the total score! I loved them paired up with the cakepops . . . adore!!!!

~ Joanne from Oh Goodie Designs  ~

Joanne is one of those people who I have had on my 'list' of people that I wanted to work with. So I took this chance when I saw that carried these plates you can design with your designs, on them in her shop! The birthday girl LOVED it & especially since I saved it as a surprise for the party!


~ Bethany from Country Cupboard Cakes

I had been working with Bethany on her logo, Etsy shop & blog while I was planning my daughter's party, so when I found out she did fondant too, I asked her to make a few pieces for some ideas I had. One of the ideas I had was a couple pieces on top of the cake. A simple tea pot & a few flowers was all that was needed to go with the pegs & the birthday sign. It all fell into place.

~ Laura (that's me!) from Skylar Raine ~

Well of course you knoooooow I was going to have something from the Skylar Raine shop to share! Skylar of course, wore a custom headband at the party that you will see soon! But for now, I have a few things that will be coming to the shop soon that made their debut at this party! What is that on the left here . . . .handpainted mini cake stands?? YUP! And then do I spy a canvas painting with a signature "Skylar Raine" flower attached? Uh huh! AND then what would an American Girl birthday party TEA be without MATCHING hair clips for the girls AND their dolls? 
I am so excited to share this finally as this is just a few of the NEW items coming to the Skylar Raine shop, that I have been working on adding. Make sure you are a fan of that page so you don't miss anything. ;)

I hoped you enjoyed this peeks & my shout-out to the amazing vendors from this party! I love my job, I love the people I get to work with I love being a part of the party world & hope you will check some of these women out!I am ALWAYS looking to work with new people, so email me if you are interested in collaborating sometime!
Again THANKS to all of them & look for some more Eye Candy coming soon with all the details & full blog post from this party! xoxo
