Cirque Du Eden: The Party Decor and Tablescape (Pt 2)

Details! Details!

I’m back to share more details from our Cirque Du Eden birthday party! I have so many great elepments I want to share that I’ve had to break this party into multiple posts!


Today I have photos of the party decor and tablescape. I used lots of vibrant hot pink and orange with a dash of turquoise throughout.
The room was filled with  big lofty balloons and the walls were papered with sideshow posters ,ruffled  paper streamers and garland.

I used a tutorial by Nicole of  Tradewind Tiaras  to make fabric covered party hats for each of the kids  and set one at each place setting.

 Chevron is one of my favorite patterns . Once I saw how great it looked in Eden’s party dress, it was a no-brainer use the pattern as the backdrop for the dancing elephants.

Even the chairs were dressed to dance with tulle skirts.

We dressed up the tables with cheery pink and orange gerber daisies and added lots of ribbon and bling to the paper vases.

The best part to sitting down to the vibrant table was the food! Guests were treated to french crepes catered by the fabulous Matt of the Omelette Guys!

I ‘m considering adding a French spin to all of our party themes just so we can eat crepes more often.


Be sure to check back for part 3 of Cirque Du Eden! In the last installment I’ll be sharing the details of the dessert table and party favors :)

Spring Bling: Our Toddler Chic Easter Brunch

We’re  so excited to share our spring party!

One:  because it was a lot of fun putting it together


Two:  because I firmly believe we know and love some of the most beautiful and  sophisticated toddlers/ preschoolers around!

When we started putting together the design we immediately thought about a lot of the traditional soft pastels and chocolate bunnies but after considering the guestlist, we thought it warranted something with a bit more sparkle for our favorite Haute kids.
