"Paris is always a good idea." ~ Audrey Hepburn
Thank you for stopping in to view all the fun from Emma's recent French Patisserie Tea Party. The invitation above from Freshmint Paperie set the tone for her 10th-birthday celebration -- a merry gathering of girlfriends from her classes at school and church.
For a peek at our front porch -- styled to evoke a Parisian terrace -- visit this post.
Step into the dining room here.

And stop by here for another round of macarons and other tasty treats.
Find more fun and favors here. Before I tell you who won a bundle of Hoffman Media magazines brimming with French inspiration, I must tell you about a special gift Emma received from our friend across the pond, magazine stylist Marie Paule, who often works Victoria.
You can see Emma's excitement in receiving an international package with a birthday postcard and delicate bracelet with a tiny Eiffel Tower charm. Marie Paule wanted her to have this little token she picked up during a perfect day strolling through Montmartre. Isn't that the sweetest surprise? This kind gesture was the icing on the cake -- or perhaps the top macaron on the tower -- for a precious little girl's very special 10th birthday.
Congratulations to tea enthusiast and author Penelope Carlevato on winning the magazines!
Please message me your address, Penelope, and I will send your package.
