Spring Time in Paris
What's better than spring? Spring in Paris of course! Ali from Stylish Soirees threw the most amazing Parisian soiree for her youngest daughter, Sophie and we are pink with envy!
As Audrey Hepburn once said, ‘Paris is always a good idea.’ Thus, the idea for the Parisian party was born. Ali from Stylish Soirées’ inspiration for this party stemmed from an exquisite image of the London Peggy Porshen cake parlour. The baby pink exterior with gorgeous pink roses sprawling across the door and a vintage pink bicycle, with more pink blooms spilling out of the basket, stole Ali's heart. Her youngest daughter, Sophie, had her heart set on a Paris party as well because, let’s face it, she likes the crepes and macarons...and of course the Eiffel Tower!
Stylish Soirées was completely sold on the colour theme when she saw the ‘pink and peach’ dessert plates and matching cups from Favor Lane Party Boutique. Ali knew Viktoria Saar was the perfect photographer to capture the scene, the finer details and the sweetness of these gorgeous girls. How do you say? Heure de la photo! Photo time!
The next de
cision was the venue. After many joint ventures with Darlings’ Day Out, Ali knew this would be a perfect venue for the pink and pretty theme she had in mind. Combined with the irresistible lure of the children being entertained and pampered with their pamper party activities of mani-pedis and cupcake decorating, this was a no-brainer! Ali wanted to create an atmosphere for the children that exuded elegance and style but still wanted it to be soft, pretty and childlike. The circular mesh backdrops with the floral garland, from Darlings’ Day Out, were perfect for the pretty pale pink ‘Sophie’ signage from Perfectly Created 4 U to take centre stage. The dessert table was a gorgeous combination of soft pink tulle, pretty florals in pink and peach blush and the hand sprayed gold Eiffel Tower with twinkle lights, were reminiscent of the Eiffel Tower at night. The cake, made by Stylish Soirées, was a red velvet mudcake with white chocolate ganache layers, fresh florals and the beautiful gold ‘Ooh la la’ cake topper, by Perfectly Created 4 U, which sat next to a mini replica of the Eiffel Tower. Stunning handcrafted ‘Paris’ themed biscuits and macarons, by Cakes 2 Celebrate by Lisa, filled the table with more sweetness! All the guests were treated to pink lemonade and a foot soak before they chose their colour for their mani-pedis! Not to mention the cupcake decorating activity for those waiting for their pamper session. The birthday girl was dressed in a beautiful soft pink tulle and white lace dress from Coco Blush Boutique and loved swirling her way from the manicure to the macarons!
The long lunch table was perfectly paired with the divine pastel pink cross back chairs from Allegra and Grace chairs. Hints of gold made an appearance in the candelabras, table runner and the tableware from Favor Lane Party Boutique.
The lolly cart was the parfait locale for a scrumptious selection of sweets or ‘bonbons’ and a pink and blush balloon garland by Stylish Soirées. Oodles of crates, vases and flowers set the French sidewalk scene with a gol d quintessential Parisian style street lamp to boot!
When it was time to say Au Revoir, Golden lolly bags with hand made chalk name tags sat waiting to be given out, the perfect favour for a perfect day.
