Before jumping in to Sly Little Fox tutorials, I want to share with you the first installment of our newest Hand-Crafted Party feature. I am so grateful for the many celebrations that have been submitted this past week, each made with such amazing & lovely details. I’m pleased to pass these beauties along to you!

Today’s birthday party theme, Springtime in Paris

Brought to you by the sweet Melissa & Kellie of Icing Designs who put together this birthday party theme for Melissa’s twin’s third birthday. The two little girls walked around talking of the “apple tower” all day- how precious!

I love the Parisian feel of using pastry for cake. This strawberry shortcake is a scrumptious centerpiece at the dessert bar.

For party decor they choose a champagne and pink pallet, perfect for two girls turning three. The glitter and lace banner, poms, and wall rosettes were all made by hand and set against a dramatic gold mirror and Effile Tower backdrop.

These rosettes popped up everywhere around the party! Make the fabulous frilly rosettes yourself with just 2 pieces of scrap booking paper + a bit of glue. You will fold the paper down into accordion strips and glue the ends together to create the flowers. They look wonderful atop pretty pearlized cupcakes. Here is the entire Rosette tutorial plus step-by-step pictures.

Each guest was treated with an Eiffel Tower Lollipop along with personalized candy poppers to send them back home in true Parisian style. A beautiful day for her two sweet girls.

For a more grown-up Paris party theme, this wedding shoot is making me swoon for celebrations in the city of love.
