Parisian Circus Soiree
I am a HUGE fan of the creators behind today’s party feature, and I’m so excited to be sharing this AMAZING baby shower with you! Seriously, when it comes to party planning, it’s tough to outdo the creative ladies behind Alchemy Fine Events & Invitations and Canvas and Canopy, and with these two powerhouses, you get an event that goes way beyond dessert tables & party favors. You get an experience!
Their main inspiration for this party came from all the French influence in New Orleans, which is where the party took place. From the ladies: “The whimsy and eccentricity of an early 1900′s Parisian circus, elegance, jeweled antiques, and vintage Barnum & Bailey were the major influences. Glamour, opulence and fun was the goal!
Playing off of the baby ‘shower’, vintage umbrellas and Parisian parasols hovered over tables with strings of dripping crystals that refracted the blue uplighting and resembled raindrops.
Inspired by big top tents, trapeze artists and French circus performers we had a stilt walker greeting guests at the door and waiters with clown couture costume makeup serving appetizers true to French Creole cuisine.
The dessert table resembled a true Parisian patisserie with large spheres of popcorn balls on crystal cut glass cake stands, pastel treats in bowls, macaroons in pale palettes of pink, sherbert green, and lemon yellow.”
