Paris in the Springtime Birthday Party

This weekend was my twin daughters' third birthday party! (which I can not believe...where does the time go!) With our love for all things French, we choose a "Paris in the Springtime" theme. It was so fun preparing for this party, my girls kept saying we are having a Pawis pawty with the Apple Tower!

This party was almost entirely DIY. We created everything from the decorations (except the pom poms....thank you Prost to the Host!) to the desserts (except for the Eiffel Tower chocolates...thank you to my fabulous aunt Gail the Craft Diva) ourselves!

We choose to use a pink and champagne color palette. We created this "Paris" glittered letter garland to go across the gold mirror that was hung above the table.






We created another garland to go across the table that said "Ohh LaLa"!

We set our DIY rosette lollipop topiaries on separate table with the plates, napkins and utensils! They added a really fun and sweet touch to the lace covered table.


We also made a variety of rosettes to hang on the wall.



We covered small glass vases with large lace ribbons and tied them with pink bows. We used these to put the utensils in.

We fell in love with this chalkboard when we saw it! We knew it would be perfect to write the food menu on! We just hot glued a little silk flower on the side to add a little "French" flair to it!

For thank you's everyone took home the candy poppers we made inspired by the girls from Posh Paperie!



Now for the dessert table! This was our favorite part of the party! We were so pleased with how it all came together! We used a white table cloth with a pink lace overlay to set all of the goodies on. We made all of the dessert from scratch starting with mini cupcakes with mini rosette cupcake flags to compliment the ones on the wall. We also made pink French macaroons filled with French buttercream, cream puffs dusted with powdered sugar, a strawberry napoleon, pink shimmered Eiffel tower chocolate lollis (thank you craft diva!!) and palmiers drizzled with pink chocolate. We also filled apothecary jars with pink and white salt water taffy. Finally, our centerpiece was an amazing gold glittery Eiffel Tower!

















We hope you enjoyed seeing our "Paris in the Springtime Party"!

Sweetly,
Melissa and Kellie

I had such a good time at the girls' party! Everything was AMAZING!!! It's one thing to see pictures of the sweet tables you girls put together, but nothing compares to seeing them in person! If there is anyone out there reading this and is questioning whether or not to do a sweet table for their next event, you should really hire these ladies! Their work is breathtaking and you will not be dissapointed!
