blabla dolls!

Your little loves a good party. Here are our picks for a birthday bash without spending a ton of cash.

Sugar High
Fuel the fire with Button Cakes Bakery (404-313-5472). The Decatur-based cupcakery has flavors like nilla vanilla, peanut butter cookie, and orange creamsicle, alongside staples like red velvet or hummingbird. A munchkin-manageable mini size is the icing on the cake.

All Dolled Up
We’re hometown softies when it comes to gift giving. Atlanta-based Blabla’s new line of dolls and outfits (1189 NE Virginia Avenue, Virginia Highlands; 404-875-6496) are sure to delight even the toughest customers.

Get Down
Boogie Baby Dance Parties (404-378-5775) will have your rug rat rocking the mic with its fetes. You pick two songs and the pups play performer by lip-syncing along. Plus, the private party space comes with everything you need.

Making it a piece of cake.
