A Brunch for Marnie and Megan

I used to have four American Girl dolls, but I didn't really play with them, and my mom gave them and all their things to Goodwill.  When my little sister wanted one, she wanted me to get a new one so they could play together. And so I did.

Meet Marnie and Megan. When my mom thought up the idea for this blog, I had planned on using the American Girl dolls for my tablescapes, but I actually have a lot more real dinnerware that I do doll dinnerware. Lately, we have been trying to find antique items that can be used as doll items. Trying to buy the vintage doll items has been more difficult. When my grandmother tried to purchase an antique doll-sized punch bowl set online, the seller refunded her money saying that it had already sold. I think I really would like to collect miniature fine china and things like that, though. I am just really picky about what I want. So, we are still looking.

We do have enough, though, for a first doll post! I have finally put together a brunch for Marnie and Megan. I think that is just what these two American girls need! Sleeping in, then come down to eat at a gorgeous table in your pyjamas? What more could you ask for? I have been really sick this year, but lately I have gotten that special treatment more than once. And I love it! I really want to go back to school, but I will miss it!

As far as my dolls go, they now have a lovely blue, flowered table cloth on their picnic table. (This is just a cloth napkin.) I have two little blue flowery butter pats they are using as plates. My mom has had these since high school. [Insert mom comment: These are an Alfed Meakin pattern dating before 1897. I would love to know what it is!]

The girls have two amazing Heisey glasses in the Colonial pattern.  They are actually part of an adult set that was made up until 1907, but they fit the girls perfectly! A good way to serve some orange juice...

I am using two sterling silver salt spoons in my mom's pattern as regular spoons for their apple sauce. The apple sauce and the croissant are part of an American Girl lunch box set! 

 The sterling salt shakers are an adult individual set, but I think they look great on this table in case the girls need to season their sandwiches.

In their p.j's., these two American girls had a tasty little brunch. They both ate all of their food because it was so good, and how lucky they are to have such fine things! My sister and I were very proud of them! (Thanks, Mom and Nana!)

  1. How adorable, love this idea. Isn't it wonderful we have a good excuse to pull out our dolls and play with them again. Marnie and Megan have inspired me to get my own dolls and dollhouse out of storage for a future post. The sterling and blue and white make a perfect setting..........
