Beth’s Best is having her 18″ dolls baking something super sweet for Father’s Day. What better way to celebrate Dads by treating them to a fancy homemade dessert. The gals have taken an interest in the TV cooking programs and have dreams of winning Master Chef Junior. Who wouldn’t want to get yelled at by Gordon Ramsey!! Since school has ended, they meet every day at each other’s homes to watch and see how the teams are doing. Scanning the other cooking shows, they have learned to make soups and main courses. They have even taken to preparing vegetables! Each of their dads has a sweet tooth, so they decided on creating special desserts for Father’s Day. They have all of their 18″ doll baking accessories LA-BS out and ready Carly bought a plain white apron for 18″ dolls DNDA-WH and has personalized it herself. She instantly fell for the dainty ruffles at the hem and doesn’t really want to get it dirty! Her dad will be very proud of her artistic accomplishments as well as her baking skills! Always practicing in her own kitchen, Julia received an 18in doll 4 piece baking chef costume DRBC for her last birthday. Now she can look like a professional when she’s whipping up something for the family’s dinner. She especially loves the toque, the tall white chef’s hat and traditional white double breasted jacket with a cupcake embroidered right on the front! Fortunately, her red clogs SSPW-RD work perfectly with her chef outfit. Sophia is all decked out in her 3 piece apron set for 18″dolls DRBA that includes an adorable polka dot apron with a front pocket, 2 matching oven mitts and a white toque (remember what that is?) with pink trim. Each of them now dressed in a super cute look for the kitchen is ready to get to work. Pie, a cake and some homemade candy will be on their task list and they are very excited to present them to their dads on Sunday!
As the school year comes to a close, Beth’s Best is celebrating 18″ dolls’ graduations. Sophia, Julia and Catherine are all graduating from high school. These three gals have been together since elementary school and will have the summer to spend together before heading off in different directions. Much time was spent deciding on what 18 inch doll clothes to wear underneath their cap and gown, DRGCG. Their 18″ doll graduation set is a traditionally styled, zipper front gown with a matching white mortar board hat. Sophia chose DRPHD, a plaid halter style 18in doll dress. The full skirt and halter neckline will keep her cool during the ceremony and the colorful plaid will look super in photo ops! Ballerina flats for 18 inch dolls in bright pink patent leather SUB-HP match her dress perfectly and walking across the bumpy football field for her diploma will be a breeze! Julia’s 18 inch doll dress DRPFD is so springy with the pink and white floral pattern, gently scooped neckline and capped sleeves. A large hot pink flower embellishment at the waistline and cinched trim detail at the hem look beautiful against her long black hair, which she has chosen to leave down. Ankle strap shoes for 18in dolls SAD-WH in white patent and her comfiest! Loving the color pink, Catherine wore DRPWS-ST, an 18 inch doll 2 piece skirt set. She absolutely loves the pink sequin peter pan collar a top of the capped sleeve tee shirt. So glitzy! Pink and white stripes and a flouncy ruffled hemline make the drop waist skirt so much fun to wear. Always trying to be edgy, Catherine chose her SBFT-AN-HP, hot pink animal print ballet flats for 18in dolls. Since she was not writing a message on her mortar board, she is hoping that her family can spot her walking in by her animal print 18″ doll shoes! So before the pomp and circumstance begins, the besties are hanging out in Julia’s room on her lounge chair set, SF-SSC. This is an exciting day for them full of reminiscing, laughing and even a few tears! Congratulations to them and to all the new graduates!
There are lots of summer celebrations and every American Girl doll will need a dress for those occasions.

You will be wowed by the styling and fabric choice for this 18in doll dress. A white satin bodice features a sweetheart neckline but also has a sheer panel to create a regular sleeveless profile.

As the Outfit of the Week, we are adding a pair of uniquely styled high heel shoes that fit American Girl dolls. SPH-PK are made from the same fabric as the wrist purse and these shoes pull this look together. Check out our Facebook page (link at bottom) to see how our gal decided to add a denim jacket over her dress and slip on a pair of sandals for a more relaxed look, maybe out to a movie or for ice cream with family and friends. Either way, this 18 inch doll dress, DRFSD-WP, will be a wonderful addition to your American Girl doll clothes summer wardrobe and for a limited time, will include an awesome pair of 18″ doll dress shoes.
This week, Beth’s Best is taking the 18″ dolls on their much deserved field trip. Since the weather on the east coast has finally warmed up, the girls are headed to the beach. Wind in their hair, sand in their toes and a boardwalk full of fun foods and souvenir stores, the day promises to provide them memories to last a lifetime. Since this is a school sponsored trip, there was a dress code where girls had to wear pants or shorts. That made picking outfits easy. Since it is still too chilly to be swimming, no swimwear necessary! Sophia is always cold, so her capri pants outfit SH-WT-HC is perfect. She grabbed a hoodie for 18in dolls, SPHD in keep in her backpack MABP-HP along with her phone and sunscreen. New 18″ floral doll espadrilles STEF-HP are so comfy for walking and easy to slip off in case she can just run and dip her feet in the water!! Always a great accessory are some cool shades, DNFSG-RD and Sophia just loves the red polka dot color. Julia’s wearing a super 18 inch doll graphic tee and shorts set DRTWS-BT. The ballerina graphic is perfect since she’s been dancing for years and the tailored, cuffed shorts for 18 inch dolls are just her style. These 18″doll shorts have side pockets and a satin tie belt details. Combined with the linen fabric, these 18 inch doll shorts look great for casual or dressy outfits. Leather look sneakers for 18in dolls SLS-WH work perfectly for Julia’s look and won’t hurt her feet with all the walking she’ll be doing. It’s a good thing that Julia is not much of a shopper so her mini backpack DNBP-PS is perfect for essentials like her sunglasses DNSGP-WH. Always careful to protect her skin and not mess up her hair, the pink visor HV-PK was an easy choice. Because she’s always last minute, Carly just grabbed a pair of denim shorts for 18″dolls SPSH-DN and plaid shirt, SPPB-PT off the floor of her room. She wears her cowgirl boots SCB-SL everywhere so she grabbed her HCG-WH cowgirl hat to give her look a bit of a western feel! Her large silver 18″doll backpack MABP-SL will make it easy for Carly to carry all her souvenirs from this trip and stow her sunglasses DNFSG-BK while shopping! The girls are ready to roll and will be sure to be the first on the bus to get a good seat! Have a super fun time on your field trip, girls!
With the end of school on the horizon, Beth’s Best features the last slumber party before the end of school. Sophia, Carly and Julia have gathered at Sophia’s house for the evening. Naturally, after pizza for dinner and a funny movie with popcorn, the gals have retired to Sophia’s bedroom for some girl time! Attempting some new “do’s” is always fun. Good thing that there are so many styling tools and hair care items in JL-HSS, enough for all of them. They are very excited about an upcoming field trip to the beach. This is something special for their class and everyone is looking forward to it! Sophia loves her 18″ doll leopard pj’s DRPJ-LP and coordinating 18in doll leopard robe and slippers set DRNR-LP. As you can tell, pink is her favorite color and the pink collar and cuffs in the robe and pink fur slippers, truly make her smile! She’s not sure what to try with her hair, so the headband will just have to work until something in her Teen Magazine catches her eye. Carly has volunteered to be the first to be styled. As long as Julia keeps the scissors away, Carly’s game for whatever look is being created! Curlers might work, although, Carly’s hair is so thick, she will need tons of them. Patiently, she’s hanging out on her backrest BS-BR-FP on some comfy blankets BS-PPF waiting for the big reveal! With a head full of rollers, how will she get her sleep mask on? That’s the coolest thing about her lavender pj and slipper set for 18 inch dolls DRPJ-LL. Maybe Carly should put it on now! Julia is the queen bee of hair do’s and actually prefers to style than be styled! She also couldn’t wait to borrow Sophia’s pink “Love” tank pj’s DRPJ-HA and coordinating 18in doll robe and slipper set DRNR-PK. While all of this is going on, Fluffy the cat LA-AK is sure that one of those hair rollers would make a super fun toy to play with and is hoping that she can grab one if it falls on the ground. Now…when the girls get so tired they will most likely not mind crashing in Sophia’s room, even though she only has one bed…WF-SBW. They will no doubt, be up early picking up the conversation about the field trip just where they left off.
