Poodle in Paris Party!

I absolutely love party planning and making all kinds of different crafty decorations in celebration of something meaningful and exciting! My daughter's birthday was one of those times! I'm also the kind of mom that celebrated practically everything and love a cake to go along with it! I wanted to share with you the decor from her birthday, which was a Parisian Poodle party. We usually have parties at our home Church because it has big space and LOTS of room for all the goodies! My daughter has an obsession with pink puppies lately, and so this theme was just perfect for her!

I always plan and organize everything to the "T"! This includes, the paper goods, foods, desserts/cake, serve ware and plasticware/eating utensils, table cloths. napkins, etc. Using the specially themes party papers (i.e. labels, straws, candy wrappers, etc.) is a must at our parties! I prefer everything "one of a kind", unique and special for our celebrations! I developed the love of planning when my youngest was born. So, everything since then is a serious job with alot of fun, to me! My children also love to help and it makes them feel like their on a mission and very much appreciated!

Dessert Table

Refreshments and Food

All centerpieces, decorations, etc. I handmade!

Table settings... I also made contrasting "bows and bow ties" for the napkins and utensils!

My handmade "pinwheels"!

Gift table wrapped it tulle and lace!

I made ALL labels to have French translation throughout everything at the party!

 I used candle holders as cupcake stands and cake pop in single tea-light holder! I also flipped over candle stick holders...

I made ALL desserts!

Upside down champagne glasses!

 These are some of the cutest straw tags!

We had a pinata and all the kids went CRAZY!

These are our pinata/goodie bags. They are just basic 5x7 plastic baggies with the labels that I printed and glued to the bags.

 Thank you translated in French to "Merci Beaucoup"!

There ya have it! Our Poodle in Paris party for my daughter, ALL decorated and organized  by me with LOTS of handmade designs and details. I hope you all enjoyed and there are MANY more posts to come!
