Paris. It’s the city of love.
Whenever you think of Paris, you think of elegance, class and stylish design. It is for this reason that a Paris party is perfect for those wanting something a little more sophisticated.
It’s perfectly suited to teens or tweens and even as a baby shower or bachelorette party.
My daughter decided to hold a Paris party for her 9th birthday. She wanted something grown up and elegant, and the Paris theme suited this perfectly.
As often as possible I love to incorporate themed food into the party. Themed food is a great way to add to the overall decor, plus it’s just a lot of fun!
The perfect cookie for a Paris party was an Eiffel tower cookie and I just love how these one’s turn out.
