Are you planning an important event – wedding, bridal shower, baby shower, or anniversary party – and want to make it truly one of a kind and spectacular? A fun, unique idea is to bring dolls and bears into the mix. My Doll Castle in Claremore offers a huge selection of dolls perfect for making your event memorable for many years to come. You can use dolls as beautiful décor, to give as party favors, or to bestow as a special gift upon the guests of honor.
Wedding season is quickly approaching, and brides and their maids of honor are rushing around to plan the perfect wedding and bridal shower. Often the most difficult part is making the event stand apart from all the rest. A gorgeous doll bride could be just what you’re looking for. “We have a variety of beautiful brides, large and small,” says Gloria Pierce, owner of My Doll Castle. “Smaller doll brides make fantastic table decorations or party favors, and a large bride would be the perfect main focus of the room for the shower.” Brides are available in a variety of styles, eras and ethnicities.
One stunning bride soon to arrive at My Doll Castle is Sandra Bilotto’s Native American bride, “Love Takes Wing.” Her expressive face is captured in hand-painted porcelain, while her shining dark hair is embellished with a gleaming, beaded and feathered headdress, which draws attention to her radiant beauty as she releases a butterfly and looks upward toward the heavens. The doll’s wedding dress has more than 1,500 hand-sewn glass beads. Another excellent option would be Key to My Heart bride and groom dolls from Linda Rick. This adorable eight-inch set comes in a white satin heart box, and would make a very special gift to the bride-to-be.
Stop by My Doll Castle when shopping for baby shower decorations also. “We have lots of unique little babies,” says Gloria. You’ll find a huge variety of babies for decorating for the shower or offering as party gifts to guests and the expectant mother. Gloria’s store offers Molly P. Originals – exceptional-quality vinyl play baby dolls, as well as babies by Sherri Williams, Adora, Bonnie Chyle, Virginia Turner, Berenguer and many more talented doll artists. A line of Ashton-Drake babies includes So Truly Real dolls, which appear to be mirror images of real live babies. The numerous plush animals available also make unique, affordable baby shower favors and décor.
The retro, nostalgia and paper dolls at My Doll Castle are wonderful gifts for anniversaries. They are also memorable decorations for anniversary parties. Robert Tonner offers a line of famous character dolls from the past, which make great gifts for all ages. There are many to choose from, such as Ava Gardner, Bette Davis, Clark Gable as Rhett Butler, Vivien Leigh as Scarlett O’Hara, Dick Tracy, and Mary Poppins. Other favorite classics include Kewpie dolls, a doll of Mrs. Beasley from television’s “Family Affair,” and Penny Brite dolls.
