Top Toys - Happy Halloween - Madame Alexander Style - Beautiful Collectible Dolls That Inspire Dreams - Motivational Quo
For me, life should be a Disney movie - played over and over again. I want to live in a land of musical carousels, beautiful maidens such as Snow White and Cinderella. I want to dance with the munchkins from Wizard of Oz.
I want to celebrate the hills that Julie Andrews sang about in the Sound of Music. I want to return to the time when I held my parents hands at the circus.
So for Halloween, it should come as no surprise, I love the beautiful and fanciful dolls of Madame Alexander.
Every girl's dream is Cinderella. Take Cinderella into your home and add some charm and continue the make believe that Walt Disney finely and forever crafted for us - with dolls dressed in soft flowing fabrics that celebrate the brighter side of Halloween - the enchanted make believe of beautiful good witches, princesses, pumpkins and even cats that that make us smile not scowl.

Best Practices for Decorating with Collectible Dolls
Madame Alexander makes a number of different size dolls. The 8" dolls I find are ideal for holiday decorating. They can sit on a table in what is called a vinaigrette or a composition that blends and compliments one another.
Grouping bears and soft stuff animals works well. The item which is important for decorating is the composition of similar items that work well with the various heights and colors.
Dolls are especially versatile because we can add doll stands and vary the heights.Doll stands vary by the height you need - do measure your doll or take it with you before you head to the craft store.
Envision of grouping of similar dolls on a mantle or hallway table or even as added grandeur for the dining table.
Add some garland and lights and your composition for decorating is complete.
- Do group like items together for a pleasing vinaigrette
- Do use doll stands to vary the heights
- Add some garland and lights to complete the presentation.
Madame Alexander Dolls with a Halloween Theme
Halloween Witch Updated
Gone are the scary witches in the pieces i have chosen to present to you. Yes, there are plenty of ghoulish dolls but the blood and wrinkles are not what uplifts me. I want the frills of a happy fantasy with all the ruffles and bright colors of a beautiful harvest afternoon.
I find it funny that a doll in orange and white tights looks charming but oh, my goodness, if I were to try to pull that off I would be possibly offered a straight jacket in black and white stripes.
Yet these dolls offer the fantasy legs that look cute in horizontal stripes.
It is the Details that Craft the Fantasy
The beauty of the Madame Alexander dolls is in the details. It is the rich fabrics with extensive textures and complimentary colors. The design elements don't stop at the dress, you will note the majority of these pieces are a set. One includes a black spider, another a purse or candy bag that is shaped similar to a bat. Another is accompanied by an adorable orange cat. The fantasy is in the details.
Madame Alexander Pirates
Fantasy Pirate for Halloween
From lace and ruffles to black pirate boots to even a colorful parrot, the details on these stunning pirate dolls simply don't end. Look at the many textures from the ribbed tights to the richness of the layered clothing. All composed in pleasing colors and yet definitely feminine and charming as only Madame Alexander can achieve.
The red feather flumes are simply out of this world. These are true pieces of art - finely crafted and designed to not only delight your senses but to transport you to another time and place as only a piece of artwork can do.
Madame Alexander Witch
Sweet and Beautiful Witches for Halloween Decorating
Remember the good witch of the Wizard of Oz and her flowing white gown and golden crown? Think beautiful witches only wear white? Think again. Madame Alexander will forever change your mind - these witches are beautiful and innocent.
The magic is not wicked, the magic is to transcend our existence to our dreams. Ruth Handler, the inventor of Barbie actively choose to create dolls that made you dream and gave you confidence for you to know that Girls Can Do Anything!
Disney created an entire industry where the experience is what counted. Both Ruth Handler and Disney shared the dream that we need a fantasy and release. Fantasy allows us to see the possibilities of life and to strive for a higher rung in life.
Pumpkin Style Madame Alexander Doll
Pumpkin Dolls for Decorating
The dolls with the pumpkin theme I find inventive. The costumes created by Madame Alexander are rich in texture and design and creativeness. Who would think of white satin and gold pumpkin costume and present it on a cherub like doll?
Every little girl's dream is materialized in these charming one of a kind costumes.
The pumpkin doll with the exquisite detailing on the witches hat is elegant and creative. If I could choose an outfit to wear that would perhaps be my first choice. I don't believe i have the personality to carry off the beautiful and elaborate pirate costumes.
Madame Alexander Halloween Themed Dolls
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
Motivational Quote from Walt Disney
All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.
Holiday Decorations Reflect the World We Wish to Create
Holiday decorations offer us a chance to create a magical world filled with joy and enchantment. If our dreams are to be fulfilled, they must be vivid and with us constantly.
I dream of a bright world, painted in happy orange and brilliant purple with dolls with cherub faces of fine porcelain and glistening eyes. I enjoy the flow from purple lights displaying the treasured collections of fanciful dolls.
For you see, dolls are not just for little girls. Dolls are for all us - they take us to our dreams and make our dreams our reality.
