Our daughter, Leah, received her first American Girl doll for her 7th birthday last summer! She loves it so much! So I thought it might be fun to have an American Girl themed birthday party this year!

Pinterest is a great go-to source for inspiration! Here are 35 ideas, including food, decorations, activities, gift ideas and more!

{P.S. Most of them are budget friendly, or at least could be made at home with a little DIY talent!}

American Girl Doll Gift Ideas

You’d be missing out if I didn’t also share some great American Girl doll themed gift ideas!

While they aren’t official AG brand, we’ve been pleased by these “fits 18 inch doll” outfits on Amazon! My daughter has received several for gifts. The only one we had some trouble with was one with sparkles, a lot of them fell off. But my daughter doesn’t really care.

This company, Sophia’s, is who we’ve bought the outfits from and they have tons of accessories too! The doll brush pictured below is amazing for Leah’s doll’s hair! Just click on the images to find them on Amazon.

If you’re looking for Dollie and Me type matching outfits, there is a decent selection on Amazon too!

I hope this post has given you some great ideas for your next American Girl doll party!
