My daughter, Teapot and her bff, Anni, wanted desperately to celebrate their birthdays at the American Girl Place in New York City. We decided to do the day up! So, bff’s mom, made reservations to the American Girl Cafe and we invited the grandmoms!
We arrived at seating time and waited behind the ropes with a couple dozen giddy and excited girls! The tension was rising! As we were escorted into the American Girl Cafe, it was like walking into a life size doll house restaurant. There were American Girl Dolls lined up with different outfits on, in case a little girl forgot her doll…she could borrow one for lunch!
We slid into our booths.
Teapot and Anni tucked their dolls into the doll chairs and ordered their Shirley Temples.
The room was girl glam with black and white stripes splashed with accessories in hot pink. Our girls thought they had “arrived”!
The server delivered warm cinnamon buns to start! Dessert first, my kind of place! The second course came out on cake stands with nibbles of fruit, pretzel bites and vegetables.
The girls both ordered the Tic Tac Toe pizza, while the moms and grandmoms ordered salads and sandwiches! (The sweet potato fries did not last long!)
The meal is finished off with little flower pots filled with chocolate mousse and a flower sugar cookie!
Lifetime memories were in the making, for all of us! I can’t tell you how special that day was to me, to be able to spend time with my daughter, share a meal with her at her “Top of the Dream List” spot and follow behind her as she explored all the dolls and their accessories!
Teapot’s birthday was full of exploring a life size doll house full of imagination and inspiration!
