Zanna and Isabeau have asked Cloe to help them get ready for today’s party. They may have gotten a bit more “help” than they anticipated…
“I think the rug would look nice outside the kitchen.”
“Is the rug nice and flat?”
“What should we do first to get ready for the party?”
“I could help set the table.”
“Here is Izzybelle’s little cup.”
“How many spoons will we need?”
“Hmmm, the parlor looks clean and ready for company…”
“The table is almost ready.”
“We’ll need to heat the iorn so that we can press our party dresses.”
“Here Isabeau, let me help you get more comfy in your chair.”
“Salt, we’ll need salt for dinner.”

Don’t worry! In spite of the sound effects, no dishes were harmed in the making of this video. As Isabeau always says, “there is a reason that babies only get to use the everyday china”! 🙂
Thank you for coming!!! I hope you have enjoyed this glimpse into some of our party preparations. Here is the schedule for today’s celebration events, I will have additional posts at 11:00 am, 1:00 pm, 4:00 pm, 7:00 pm, and 10:00 pm Eastern time. My 7:00 pm post will feature several dolls for sale, because what would an Izannah Walker Birthday Celebration be without at least a few new reproduction dolls for sale? 🙂 The dolls will only be posted here on my blog. If one or more of them tugs at your heart strings and you’d like to purchase her, you may email me at email@example.com. If more than one person is interested in buying the same doll, the email with the earliest time will get preference. ❤

Precious! Thank you for sharing, totally enjoyable! Delightful young ladies.
You are very welcome! It’s my pleasure 🙂
Hi Paula, Amazing pictures! Looks like Cloe is having such a great time! What a sweet little helper you have! Izannah Walker had little girls just like Cloe in mind when she created her amazing dolls. Thank you for this fun birthday celebration, and for all that you do so that all of us “little girls” of all ages can have fun with these beautiful dolls, and celebrate the love we have for them on this very beautiful Fall day! Susie
Susie you are so very welcome! Cloe does love to play in the studio and in the doll house. She is going to be sad when she gets to big to fit inside with the dolls 😦 I think the dolls love having a chance to play again too. ❤ Paula
Hi Paula, Amazing pictures! Looks like Cloe is having a wonderful time! Your dollhouse is so amazing, it’s very easy to see why Cloe would want to move right in! What a sweet little helper you have!

This is sooooooo precious! It’s so, so sweet to see Chloe following in Grandma’s footsteps! She absolutely steals the show – what a darling!
The Izannah Walker dolls looked a little worried in a few scenes but I think I heard a huge sigh of relief from Isabeau (and a few of the others) once the tea party was over. I can’t wait to see what will happen next… A very happy birthday to all the Izannah dolls and their wonderful hostess! Love, Charlotte
Thanks Charlotte! Isabeau was a smidge worried about the everyday china. She is out of practice playing with toddlers, but decided it made a very nice change for a special day!
