Glamour Girl in Paris Birthday Party

Our sweet little girl turned four! We celebrated with a Barbie in Paris inspired party with all of her little friends. Kate decided on the fashion theme and would get so excited every time she would see an Eiffel Tower on anything. We went with the traditional light pink, black and white color scheme {love it}. Vicki from Vicki Lynn Photography was on hand to capture every detail! When thinking about what she would wear, I immediately thought of the silhouette shirt by Oh Fiddlesticks that she modeled in our Glam Camping shoot. I called Melissa and asked if she could create the shirt in our colors and allow me to use their silhouette graphic in my designs. She jumped on it and made the most adorable version in pink, black and white! Kate wore a gorgeous pink pettiskirt from Pink Taffy Designs with the shirt, along with a special tiara that I picked up at the Believe Boutique.

Guests were greeted at the door by a lovely Barbie print by Robert Best {I won it from Layla Grayce last year!} framed in a gorgeous frame by The Vintage Crush and topped with a pink rose flower ball from HomeGoods.

 Each girl was given a tutu made by Tiny Belles Boutique, a hair accessory by Banner Boutique and a necklace to wear. Before they were escorted upstairs for a mini makeover, they all checked out the dessert table set up in our front room.

One of my favorite elements of the dessert table was this beautiful pink Barbie cake that was created by Melissa from Decadent Delights. Inspired by the doll cakes that my mom made for my parties when I was little, it was so fun to see an updated version come to life! This Barbie was a replica of the 1977 {my birth year} doll that I bought and put away when it was being sold for Barbie’s 50th Birthday! Melissa used fondant for the bodice of the dress and butter cream to make the swirls. She topped with rhinestones and edible glitter, which was so sparkly and gorgeous in person!

And what would a dessert table be without custom chocolate covered Oreos from Sweeties? Kim supplied oreos for Kate’s Fairy Party last year and has now since been seen on dessert tables everywhere!

I met Terri of Terri’s Treasures at the Martha Dreamers event and have been waiting for a good time to try out her products! She created perfect pink & black cake balls on black/white striped straws {adorable} along with custom silhouette cake pops! They were not only adorable, but seriously delicious.

 I asked Angela from Queen of Tarts to create edible image cookies using the silhouette graphic. They turned out adorable and each girl was given one in their favor bags! She also made some of her gorgeous cameo cupcake toppers, perfect for this theme!

 Charynn from Two Sugar Babies recently created the fondant cupcake toppers in various colors and our contributor, Tanya shared them with me right before the party. I had to have them! She was able to ship some off quickly for the party! 

We have been working with Bundles of Cookies and the cookies blew me away when I opened the package. Look at the detail in the dress cookies! I adore the swirls! They were a hit at the party.

You can’t have a Paris themed party without French macarons! These were shipped in by Crazy about Macarons. It’s hard to ship the little bites of sweetness, but they arrived beautifully and tasted delicious.

My friend, Vana at Le Papier Studio whipped up an adorable print for me to display at the party. It was created from an actual picture of Kate in her pettiskirt! It will be such a cute keepsake to have from the party! The tulle pom wands were made by Adisten’s Closet, along with hanging tulle pom poms!

 I created new printable designs for cupcake toppers, fancy labels and favor tags for this theme {available at}. I designed all of the paper goods using the girl silhouette, along with bows, stripes and dots. 

The girls were treated to a mini-makeover including hair styling and a little makeup by our lovely helpers, Courtney, Caitlin, Carly & Cassie! My helpers wore silhouette shirts by Oh Fiddlesticks to match the birthday girl!

 We set up a runway outside in the backyard for the girls to do a little fashion show for all of the moms. {no boys allowed at this party!} I made topiaries for the end of the aisle using pink buckets, wood dowels and lanterns from Polka Dot Market. I hung the pink tulle poms from Adisten’s Closet along with white paper medallions from Polka Dot Market in the trees.

 My friend, Kristy Kay {former Fiesta Bowl Queen} gave our little guests a lesson on walking the catwalk! It was so adorable. After a practice run, we brought all of the moms out to give them a little show!
