Party Recap

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.

Party Highlights

  • 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!

  • Budget

    We had a VERY tight budget for this party. I spent less than $75 on everything.

  • Party Favors

    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.

  • Best Moment

    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.
