To celebrate my youngest daughter’s 8th birthday, we had a “Pink Parisian Patisserie” party. This party was created on a MAJOR budget, mostly using things we already had and a lot of DIY. The theme of the party was all tied together with a story that my daughter and I wrote, about sisters who lived in France and started their own “patisserie.” The party was a lot of fun, but the memories I have with my daughter creating all of the details are so precious to me! I blogged about this party on my personal blog – www.luluandjunebug.blogspot.com.
Activities / Games
The story contained several activities the girls had to do - they decorated cupcakes, made a bed for their poodles, played bingo and had a dance party!
We had a VERY tight budget for this party. I spent less than $75 on everything.
As part of our story, the girls had to go on a hunt to find some poodles, then decorate a bed for them. They took home their poodles as well as more marshmallow pops and some hair flowers I made.
Several of the girls commented that this was the "best party" they've ever been to = but honestly hearing my little girl say "Thank you" a million times was the best part for me.
What People Ate
Our party was from 2-4 in the afternoon, so we mostly served sweets - cupcakes, candies, macarons (from Trader Joes), cookies, and marshmallow pops. We also had some fruit and pretzels to balance out all that sugar!
What People Drank
My daughter requested Shirley Temples, so my husband made them for the girls. They drank them out of bottles with cute paper straws.
