Real Hip Hooray: Pink Poodles in Paris

Mia was a guest at a perfectly pretty parisian party recently. The cute age-appropriate twist was that it was all about the pink poodle. With lashings of pink and black, mini french yummies and adorable puppy details, the little guests returned grinning from poodle ear to ear.

Details we heart:

  • Pink poodle ears for all the girls on arrival
  • Patisserie-inspired party buffet filled with mini croissants, mini chocolate eclairs, those macarons, polka-dot cookies, bone shaped pastries, and raspberry meringues
  • Fabric awning suspended above the buffet for `store window' effect
  • Luella's boutique where the girls could `shop' for jewellery and cosmetics - all candy of course!
  • The much-adored Fifi the Poodle cake
  • Babycinos created from marshmallows and whipped cream
  • Eiffel tower drinking cups
  • Pass the Shopping Bag game - each guest retrieved a dog-bone shaped trinket box filled with crayons
  • Limbo beneath a boa of pink feathers!
  • Goodie boxes overflowing with poodle-inspired gifts - bracelets, stickers, notepads, and even fifi herself
