Party Recap

The story for this party began about 7 years ago…

My father is an avid collector (keychains, baseball name it) and decided this would be a great hobby to pass down. So when his first granddaughter (my first daughter!), Maria Fernanda was born he did!

It all started with my parents’ first trip to Europe. They brought back what would be the first of many dolls from Switzerland, Spain, France and Italy.

After that, the dolls just kept on coming...

I ask each adventure bound friend or relative to bring us another doll.

Today, there are over 20 dolls, each one prettier than the next.

Naturally, I consider myself their “alter”owner!!!

So, the party theme was chosen over 2 years ago:

a trip around the world with Maria’s dolls!

As you know, I’m all about unique party themes...

Shall we take a trip together and visit every detail of this very fun party?

Let’s face it, a party for your own child trumps all others... and there is no risk mom won’t approve! lol!
