Annabelle and Ella are so excited to team up with Whole Foods Market, for a fun, fresh and healthy holiday picnic !! 

The girls loved putting together these beautiful and delicious little treats and snacks.  Our basket was filled with fresh fruit, and berries. 

We love how festive and colorful the results were. The best part: this was so fun and easy to do.

One of the cutest and simplest snacks were the Berry Kabobs! These were such a hit with the girls! Super easy, tasty and healthy to put together. 

All we needed were these 3 ingredients:

Blueberries 

Stawberries

Kabab sticks 

(add brownie bites or marshmallows for a sweet treat version!)

The girls also loved adding blueberries to almost everything- the cream cheese toast ( use the blueberries for the “stars” + add strawberries for the “stripes”!)

They also added a dash of blue to their mini vanilla cupcakes and whip cream waffles.

Let your imagination run wild and have fun with it. Fourth of July snacks and treats can be healthy too!!  

Don’t forget to visit your local Whole Foods Market for a variety of tasty (and fun) foods and fruits. We want to share a big thank you to the Whole Foods Market family for sending us this delicious Red White and Blueberry fun basket!!

(Don’t forget to look out for their special Summer savings on Organic Blueberries: 18 oz/2 for $7!! Sale runs from July 5-11!! Yum yum!!)

Ella and Bella wish everyone a fun and safe Independence Day, however you wish to spend it!

Thank you so much for reading along,

XO,

Bella + Ella

Hanging out at The American Girl Store is a doll house dream come true!

Bring your bestie and your favorite doll for the sweetest outing that little girl dreams are made of. 

After picking out the cutest matching “dolly and me” western wear, Ella and Bella loved walking through the different worlds of each special American Girl’s slice of history.

The Girls loved jamming with Melody’s recording studio and playing with Niki’s horse stables.

After browsing through the colorful store and all the fancy accessories, the girls stopped for delicious milkshakes at the Bistro- with a cherry on top! Hanging out at the 50’s style dinner bar was adorable.

All food items on the menu were simple, and kid friendly.

They even had high chairs for their dolls!! If you forget a doll, you can borrow a doll of your choice! You can even choose a doll that looks like you (they have dozens of hair, eye, and skin color combinations!) 

If you are looking for a sweet activity indoors, want to treat your little one to a special girlie day or want to meet up with a friend for a dreamy girlie day out, this is Bella and Ella Approved!! 

Bonus ideas: plan a party here, treat your doll to a “spa day”, or check out all the special American Girl reading materials now available in store!!

Don’t forget to bring Mom along because every American mom was also once an American Girl at heart too 😉

Thank you so much to the American Girl Store for inviting Ella and Annabelle, the girls had the best time and will be back soon 🙂

Welcome to our Princess Tea Party!! Nothing is more fun than dressing up and treating your little friends and dolls for an afternoon of imagination!

Bella and Ella dressed up in their fancy ball gowns and brought their little dolls to the party. All we needed to complete the date was a little play table with chairs.

The girls brought fresh colorful cupcakes, and pretty garden flowers. No need to worry about breakable jars, these sweet watering cans make a great flower holder. 

Bella and Ella danced on their chairs, twirled in their dresses and acted like little ladies serving each other tea, and letting their dolls lick the frosting off the cupcakes. 

This idea is so simple to put together. Everything came from home, and can be set up in a bedroom, garden or even at the park. A little fancier than a picnic and just as easy to pull together.

All we needed for our Princess Tea Party

1 Table + 4 Chairs 

2 Princess dresses

2 Dolls

1 Tray of Cupcakes

1 Tea Set

2 Watering Cans + Fresh Garden flowers

Happy Playing Everyone!
