Tres Chic Paris Party – Part 2 (27 photos)
In Part 2, I wanted to share the details of the main table. Any piece of furniture can be transformed to coordinate with your event with the right piece of fabric. By draping this dining room table with long, black lace and a tulle runner, a beautiful tablescape was created! Check your local fabric stores for inspiration and take your table outside on a nice day for a beautiful, natural backdrop.
Each place setting was marked with a doily place setting, damask plate and cloth napkin. The chairs were backed with poms made from coffee filters and a cute eiffel tower adorned the ribbon. Creature Comforts has a fabulous diy tutorial on the coffee filter poms here. We also made tutu chair skirts to line the seat of each chair which we hope to bring a tutorial to you soon.
The black cake stands were made by hand painting vintage candlesticks found at a thrift store a topped with a wooden crafting plate. I LOVE making cake stands because they can be painted and lacquered to match any color palette! Simply use wood glue to attach the plate to the candlestick and paint! We get our wooden cake plates here!
We shared details in regards to the hand painted hat boxes on Hostess with the Mostess. Check it out for the inside scoop and a link to where we purchased the hat boxes.
The guests enjoyed french macarons, chocolate eclairs, mini cupcakes, buttercream cookies, raspberry tarts and more. Each girl took home a decorated beverage bottle filled with raspberry sparkling water as well. They had a lot of fun tasting treats and passing desserts around.
It was a joy working with this adorable family.
