My little girl turned six last week, and so we celebrated as anticipated with a Paris themed party.
I know people generally expect Paris parties to be red, white and blue, but there are in fact a lot featured in pink and black. That was my initial choice, confirmed when I saw this gorgeous print on Etsy (see vendor credits below).
But it wasn’t all bad news. A trip to the local florist this morning confirmed my suspicions that peonies have just bloomed, and I was able to pick up these gorgeous pink ones. My favourite flower of all time.
Even Harriet’s male cousin was happy to drink out of these Eiffel tower straw cups.
And then there were the treats themselves, starting with this Persian fairy floss which is not only yummy, but looks so lovely. The chocolate flavour is the most gorgeous deep taupe colour.
Some Eiffel Tower cookies. Thanks to Sweetapolita for the fabulous sugar cookie recipe. It really is perfect.
