5 SPECTACULAR Parisian Parties... Ooh la la!

My daughter Clara was born in one of THE most glorious cities on earth... Paris!  And although my Parisian Princess will soon be 12,  memories of our time spent in France remain crystal clear!  As of late, "Paris inspired" parties are all the rage and oh so très, très chic!  Today's 5 posh party posts clearly share a similar theme, yet they are all quite unique!  The details are amazing!  Superchicks, be dazzled!  ♥♥♥


Delaney's Parisian Candy Party created by Amy from {five lucky charms} is so super SWEET, literally!  I'm totally feeling the white feather boas and favor boxes!!!  What little girl wouldn't love to fill a paper purse with CANDY?!!!  The black and "bubble gum" pink color combo is so hot!  LOVE it!  {Personalized tags and toppers can be ordered through Party Box Design!}  


 Glorious!  Sublime!  Opulent!  Three words that describe this event!  Melissa and Kellie from {Icing Designs} have outdone themselves yet again with their "Paris in the Springtime Birthday Party"!  The champagne and soft pink color palette rocks!  My favorite detail?  The paper rosettes on the wall for sure!  Totally unexpected! 


"From Paris With Love"  hosted by Carissa Mason from  {Musings of a Modern Mom}
screams vintage chic!  The invitation is AWESOME and the "Pin the Poof on the poodle" game had me laughing out loud!  Carissa is beyond creative!


This striking "Oooh La La Birthday Party" was fashioned by the talented Stephanie Coffey Wheeler from {stephanie wheeler photography}!  Stephanie was inspired by a party paper pack found at paper glitter!   This party blew me away!  It's bold, hot and totally modern!  LOVE IT!


Within seconds, "la petite boulangerie" hosted by Jess from "Pen N' Paperflowers" had me licking my lips and craving croissants!  So many scrumptious pastries... Quel délice!  The bakery boxes are totally precious! And that tiny cake topper... it's the sweetest dolly ever! One word... Breathtaking!


PS ~ If these 4 outstanding parties have left you wanting more "French Fête" inspiration, I invite you to enjoy this dreamy "Parisian Inspiration Board" courtesy of our friends at "Birthday Girl"!  FYI ~ Birthday Girl is one of my VERY FAVORITE blogs!!!


Kim from {Frost Me} is also riding the Parisian wave this week!  Her latest post "Parisian Pink Poodle Party Theme" is a delightful treasure trove!  Each and every one of her "sources" will have you exploring for hours!  Now go on, get frosted!  ;-)

How FUN!!! Oh this makes me want to go to Paris again so bad. I went back in 1998 and was there for New Year's Eve. We were right on the Champs-Elysees at midnight and it was incredible!!

I love this theme so much. My daughter is only turning 3 so I'll probably wait a bit to do this one, but I love it :)
