ABOUT THE THEME

Even though your little one won’t remember it, a 1st birthday party is a fun excuse to get friends and family together. This Parisian-themed 1st birthday party features an adorable kids’ table, complete with mini centerpieces and place settings, alongside equally chic tables for the grown-ups.

And don’t even get us started on the dessert bar. It’s a thing of beauty! Macarons and custom cookies are on display next to towers of roses and white chocolate-dipped strawberries, complete with a cascading floral background. Très chic!

OCCASION: 1st Birthday Party

VIBE: Glamorous

Entertainment

CARICATURIST

Live entertainment is a fun element that kids really love. Hiring a caricaturist means everyone can have a one-on-one experience and it doubles as a fun take-home gift.


Venue Settings

BALLROOM

If you have both kids and adults in attendance, it’s a good idea to host in a venue that has plenty of space for the kiddos to run around while parents can sit back and socialize.


Food

DESSERT BAR

Indulge in all the sweet treats Paris is known for: macarons, madeleines, tarts, chocolate croissants and crêpes.


Beverage

DIY HOT COCOA BAR

A hot chocolate or coffee bar would fit into this theme perfectly. If you’re going the hot cocoa route, serve French hot chocolate (aka chocolat chaud) which is a thicker, richer drink than a standard hot cocoa in the US. For coffee, have espresso and noisette (essentially a French macchiato) on the menu.


Creative Detail

CAKE

And of course, nothing says “birthday” like cake! This confection is customized with the birthday girl’s name, and topped with light pink macarons as a nod to the party theme.
