Bonjour! Pack your bags, grab your passport and get ready for Pancakes in Paris!
We created a Parisian themed kids birthday brunch with a little creativity that had our guests saying “Ooh La La!”
The great thing about this theme is how universal it is. Though our Parisian brunch was all about the kiddies, the ideas here can also be dressed up and used for wedding showers, baby showers or a grown up birthday soiree.
The biggest decoration for our party came in the form of a dessert bar dressed like a little shoppe you're likely to find on the streets of Paris.
Since this was a brunch, we kept our desserts limited to donuts. They came in all shapes, sizes and styles.
To add a bit more pizazz to our dessert bar we dressed up our donuts with party printables.
Tables followed our color scheme in an easy, budget-friendly way. Inexpensive wooden Eiffel Towers were spray painted in party colors, while paper plates and personalized Styrofoam cups adorned each table setting.
For our little guests we provided party hats that were absolutely darling, and perfect for our Paris party.
These blooms reinforced our red, white and blue color scheme. Potted plants make great centerpieces for casual parties because they can do double duty as a favor or get planted in your own garden once the party's over!
For smaller kids, keep games and activities easy and to a minimum. Rather than mapping out precise time frames for different games, opt for more free play activities. We had our girls craft their favorite donut out of play-doh.
Happy Birthday! Make sure you snap a few shots of the birthday girl and her guests. We staged a Parisian photo shoot by creating an easy DIY photo booth back drop. Not only did the girls love posing in front of our little Eiffel Tower, but it added to the decor of our space.
For a Paris theme party, look to the flag of France for your color scheme. Then, get inspired by French flair to embellish your party space! Read More
Cupcakes and pastries are lovely, but for a little girl's birthday party you may want to skip the sugary desserts. If so, try hosting an early afternoon brunch birthday like we did for our 'Pancakes in Paris' soiree. These ideas for a doughnut dessert bar are Parisian-inspired and easy to recreate in your own home. Read More
For an afternoon birthday celebration for little kids, keep the activities to a minimum. We love the idea of a photobooth since it captures memories of the party and does double duty as decor. We also recommend getting creative with play-doh. Apart from that, let the kids do their thing! Read More
