Instead of party activities, use these adorable dolls as invitations! Write out all the information for your party on these dolls, pack them in an envelope and mail them out to your guests. It's an excellent way of using up paper dolls that you don't think you'll need.

38. Colors, Colors, Colors!

Invitations are there to be inviting! Catch attention with brightly colored paper to hand-make invitations. Choose the colors you would like for your party, and write all your guests may need to know, it's a great affordable option for good-looking invitations.

39. Customized Invitations

Having something unique will really make your party stand out. Customize each invitation through small businesses and you can have something that no one else does.

40. Doilies

Be careful! Writing on a paper doily may be hard, but it will really set the mood for your doll theme party. They could also easily be reused at the party itself as coasters or napkins.
