If your daughter is a fan of American Girl (and chances are she is), she will certainly enjoy celebrating her big day at the American Girl Bistro. The guest of honor gets a special shiny tiara and birthday keepsake to commemorate her special day. Beyond her guest list of VIP friends, there’s a special seat just for the dolls. Several birthday bundles are offered, including a “Deluxe” package with a yummy meal accompanied by American Girl’s signature oh-so-pretty pink and white cake and ice cream. The bash includes a fun table activity, DIY crafts, goody bags, and glimmering doll tiaras for all. More glam? A doll hair salon service can be added on to the festivities!

Little girls love to indulge in pretty sweet treats. Angela’s Sugar Fix enables them to explore the art of decorating, too! Taking the hassle out of party planning, Angela’s will travel to the birthday girl’s home or other party venue. In tow will be Original Cookie Kits, which are always freshly made. Each box contains festive decorations such as colorful sprinkles, sanding sugar, and chocolates, as well as butter cream icing and two sugar cookies for decorating. One yummy cookie will be enjoyed at the party and the other is saved as a party favor for later. After embellishing the cookies, the aspiring artists can adorn the cookie boxes. Angela’s Sugar Fix can easily customize the kits to suit any party theme.

It’s time for the ponies! Host your daughter’s birthday bash at a friendly stable in midtown Manhattan. The birthday girl and her guests can experience the fun of riding on a pony, but they’ll also have an opportunity to interact with these little cuties by brushing and grooming them. In an effort to suit all rider needs, Chateau has a range of absolutely adorable ponies of varying sizes. A festive ambiance is created with colorful balloons, banners, and party streamers. Several fabulous party pony packages are offered, with fantasy-inspired add-ons like horse-drawn hayrides and Cinderella coach rides.

Now that they’re ready to really explore their creativity, the next phase of the celebration includes the painting of their very own item. Options range from t-shirts to backpacks, flowerpots, treasure boxes, pillowcase dresses, tote bags, and more. Add-ons include face painting and glitter tattoos.
