If you don't own an American Girl doll, which Piper doesn't, they'll lend you one with a high chair. Pi got to pick from a whole stack of them. The waitress brought out a mini tea set to match the full sized ones on the table.
The whole place was decked out in pink, black and white. They even had a harp player. Umm, I've never even been to an adult restaurant with a harp player.
They served your tea in miniature individual teapots. I thought those were cute.
The birthday cake and ice cream was peppermint flavored. I usually love peppermint, but I wasn't a fan of it here. It looked pretty.
After the tea party, the girls looked around the store. Its huge...3 floors of nothing but (overpriced) dolls and their accessories. Michaela's parents bought her a Samantha doll and Piper got one of the mini 6 inch Felicity one.
Pi wants an American Girl for Christmas which just makes my wallet groan. My grandfather agreed to get her one, but that means I'm going to have to spring for some of the accessories. I'm going to scour Etsy for some cute handmade doll clothes. I'd rather buy handmade doll clothes than buy from the store if I can.
The girls loved it and thought it was great, but personally, I thought it was a bit much for such young girls. Pi is begging me to do the same thing for her birthday. July is a long time away and I'm hoping she'll forget about it by then.
On the crochet front, I took a break from Mom's scrapghan and made
something for a blogger buddy. Its on the way to her house and its a surprise, so you don't get to see it until she gives the A-OK. Also, for Joyce, Bezzie, Lesa, and Jen...your ornaments are on the way!
