Parisian Chic – Dress to Impress:
The classic Parisian women is chic and classy. Tres Chic. Think tweed, neutrals, muted tones, c’est la vie shirt and a few small pops of color. Maybe add a beret if the weather permits. You don’t need to break the bank and buy designer clothes. Don’t forget to wear a classy heel even if its 1 inch tall! Still can’t think of a Parisian outfit, Pinterest has lots of ideas.
Thank your guests with a French macaron in a small clear box or a custom sugar cookie with your guest’s name on it. If you have extra money to spend on favors, consider buying small Eiffel tower key chains or chic pearl rings as favors.
A Parisian Menu:
A French menu can include a classic quiche, fresh croissants, scrumptious macarons, and French crepes. Take it up a notch and organize a crepe station with fruits, different sauces, and crème fraiche. Don’t forget to serve with a nice loose-leaf tea or champagne!
If you have the option of purchasing or renting real table linens, do it! If not, a good quality disposable tablecloth should work. Layer with a classy table runner, fresh flowers, real dishes, hat boxes and a few Eiffel towers. Read through our Coco Chanel birthday post for some inspiration!
French music is a staple at Parisian parties. Search for classic French songs that match the theme of your event. Whether its opera or the fun Parisian Cafe music, guests will definitely get into the mood. Alexa or wireless speakers can be placed in several areas around the party room to create a French ambience. If you are renting a hall, inquiry about playing music.
Cakes come in all shapes and forms. The flavor is your pick but here are a few themes we suggest for your cake: Coco Chanel, Laduree, obviously Eiffel tower, or a classy hat box with flowers.
