Parisian Bakery Birthday Party…

If you saw my last post, it was the invitations for this birthday party.  Fancy, fancy, and more fancy.


As you entered, I had a display with a couple of items of interest, including the “daily specials”.  Since I didn’t have a bodice, I used a floor lamp as a “bodice” to hang a dress from.

In order to create a true Parisian Bakery environment, I prepared numerous Parisian type desserts and displayed them.


Everything from chocolate mousse (pudding) to parfaits


I made Nicoise and wrapped them with Eiffel Tower ribbon.  I even had Macarons!


To display the cupcakes, I filled apothecary jars with silk flowers and placed clear glass plates on top.



I made high heeled shoe cupcakes also and decorated them with an Eiffel Tower charm on top, which was part of the party favor.


The table decor was simple…pink, white, & black tulle loosely braided down the center with Eiffel Tower statues in white & black.


I posted a similar picture to this back in June.  I made another one for my daughter and displayed it was part of the fancy decor during the party.


I purchased an Eiffel Tower backdrop at Oriental Trading and used it as a photo booth.  The girls had so much fun with the props, including a white board for them to write the reasons they love Paris!  The girls topped off the party with a French lesson!  Magnifique!

Happy partying…

Parisian Bakery Birthday Party Invitations…


A fun and festive invitation is the perfect way to invite guests to your party.  It will set the tone long before the party begins.  For my daughter’s 10th birthday, we had a Parisian Bakery themed party.  Of course, Paris is fancy, so the invitations needed to be fancy too.


I started by cutting black 8.5″ x 11″ card stock exactly in half.  I printed all of the party details on light pink paper and cut it slightly smaller than the black card stock, leaving about a 1/2″ border along all sides.  I then used a glue stick to glue the pink paper to the black card stock.


I stamped a silver Eiffel Tower onto velum that I cut the same size as the black card stock.


You can see how fun this looks when the velum is resting on top of the pink and black.


Take a single hole punch and evenly space out 2 holes.


Thread pink ribbon through the holes with both ends coming up.


Tie a pretty bow.


You now have a fancy invitation to send to your guests that was quite simple to make.

Happy stamping…
