Parisian Inspired Baby Shower {Guest Feature}

This Parisian themed Baby Shower sent in by Carrie of C Stands for Carrie, is full of so many chic and interesting details, I couldn’t wait to share it!  The theme was chosen to reflect the guest of honor’s love of all things French and fashionable, and it was executed beautifully. 
Lots of chalk board signs (made from trays, platters, and frames), hanging umbrellas from Target (hung with push pins), and French books, flash cards, and food labels filled the party space.  There was also a special “logo” made for the party which was used on the invitations, labels, and other decorative accents.
A delicious French food spread included baguettes, croissants, a variety of cheeses, nuts, pate and fruit.  There was also traditional creme brulee, chocolate covered strawberries, and cupcake jars for dessert!
Some of the fantastic ideas Carrie used here are the Eiffle Tower-stamped cups, a diaper pen used to adorn food labels, and the wonderful chalkboard signs made from old platters.
The shower also included some fun themed activities: match the baby item with it’s French word; name the baby animals (what specific animals are called as babies); and a photo area with the most amazing “French” backdrop.  Carrie created it by hanging a collage of French posters, pages from an old French book, a pennant, and a print from her living room.
To complete the project, she offered chocolate mustaches made from molds found at Bake It Pretty.
I love the chic look of this baby shower, and can definitely see this used for a bridal shower, or birthday party as well.  Thanks for sharing this lovely inspiration Carrie!

    Oui oui! This is a such a great themed shower. I love the French translation card. I’m guessing that was a game for the guests. How fun!
