Our party theme was "teeny-tiny with a touch of fall." You can view the invitations and the blogs that inspired the theme here.
As each girl arrived, she got her own teeny tiny party hat, which I made myself using this template.
While the guests were arriving, we had a tiny marshmallow roast. Unfortunately, it was a little hard to man the camera when supervising eight small girls with burning candles, so I only have pictures of the end of the roast. Sorry!
After s'mores, I told the girls a silly story about a teeny tiny lady and a teeny tiny bone. (You can find it here.) We let the girls take turns hiding and finding a tiny "bone" after the story. Then it was back outside to decorate teeny tiny pumpkins.
Next, we served up some tiny-yet-tasty treats.
The tiny buffet, complete with a very tiny birthday cake (topped with a 7 candle).
Tiny snacks included pizza bites, a vegetable tray of carrot sticks (julienned), celery sticks (thin sliced), and tomatoes (grape), and hot dogs (hot dog buns were frozen rolls cut in half and baked).
Tiny cupcakes, made using mini muffin tins.
The guests definitely enjoyed their tiny feast. Especially the ice cream cones.
I found the very tiny cones at Target, for about $2.99. They are darling, with tops about the diameter of a fifty cent piece. Guess what? After the party, when I was picking up groceries at Aldi (my favorite grocery store), I found the same cones for $0.89!!! I never even thought to look at Aldi--I know I've never seen them there before.
Anywho, after the candles on the teeny tiny cake were blown out and wishes were made, the birthday girl opened her presents. Then, she gave tiny favor bags to her guests, personalized with their initial.
Among other tiny things, each girl received her very own fabric flower pin or barrette, custom made for the occaision by "Miss L". (She offers them for sale here, to raise the money she needs to participate in sixth grade orchestra.)
