Paris Themed Party

Here are some pictures of the Parisian themed party I made for my daughter.

I took the challenge from Paper Craft magazine Paper Ensembles challenge and I ran with the idea.

From the handmade paper invitations to the handmade paper mache hot air ballons! I think it turned out super cute and girly. I hand stamped all the table clothes with the Eiffel tower. The party favor boxes for the girls are cute poodles with the Merci (Thank You) accented with stickles. The boys got elegant black good bags with the French red berets also saying Merci. The Happy Birthday bouquets were hand punched and stamped to decorate the food table. Last but not least all the paper Eiffel Towers made as centerpieces! I had so much fun with this… I am ready to do it again 🙂
