Hip Theme: A little Ooh La La!

Mia has her first birthday party of the year tomorrow and we've (yes, both of us!) been looking forward to it all holidays . Host mum Sonia is a graphic designer with lots of style and great concepts. We have had fun sharing ideas and inspiration as she plans a tres chic Parisian soiree for 6 year old Luella (also affectionately known as Lulu - how fitting!).
I have offered to make the macarons - oooh those sweet delicate little pastel numbers which I adore the look of, but ummm, have never made before this week! Actually the test batch were a surprising success, but meringue and I have a tumultuous relationship so I am quietly anxious about our date tonight. Keep me in your thoughts - oh and if you don't see piccies here in the next few days, you will know the macarons and I had a major falling out.
Gorgeous for ladies of all ages, a Parisian theme is sweet and stylish for any girlie occasion. Look forward to sharing the details from Lulu's soiree - in the meantime here's a little inspiration . . . .
