    Hi Amber! I got them from an etsy seller -- http://www.etsy.com/shop/socute2 She made them for me at a great price, without the design, and then I had them printed locally. Thanks for asking!

    Happy to help! I did just go back and read her feedback, and it seems like a lot of people are having trouble with orders taking too long, so you might want to try a different vendor. I did a quick search for "american girl doll food" on etsy.com and there are a lot of items that might work for your party from other sellers. Oh, just wanted to let you know that I paint child/doll sized tea cups - my shop is www.hollyslay.etsy.com. Have a great party!

    Hi Jen! I ordered them through Olliegraphic, they have an etsy site and a regular website. Here's a link to their Etsy site:http://www.etsy.com/shop/olliegraphic You could probably message her through etsy and send her the link to my party and she can find that file and change it for your party. Thanks for your sweet note! holly

    Hi Danielle! They're from Olliegraphic -- http://olliegraphic.com/ -- They were a custom order (I sent her a photo of my daughter's dress and she was able to match it, along with hair style/color), I am sure if you contact the shop, she can design invitations for you!

    HI Tina! I got the tee shirts from an etsy seller -- http://www.etsy.com/shop/socute2 She made them for me at a great price, without the design, and then I had them printed locally. My mom made the tutus -- they're just a ribbon as a waistband, with lots of different ribbons/tulle strips tied to the waistband ribbon.
