My Mother is quite the "Fashionista" and loves everything fashion related including one of the fashion capitals of the world, Paris. She recently asked that I help her with a Paris themed dessert table for a luncheon and fashion show she was planning for the ladies at church. Of course I wanted to help, how fun!
I started with the coordinating stationery in her color choices of red, white and black along with a sprinkle of turquoise. With a little furniture rearranging, her sitting room proved to be the perfect place for the party. It was one of the easiest tables I have set up so far since she already had all the needed decor and artwork that doubled as backdrops.
I filled apothecary jars with coordinating candy and we served cupcakes, madeleines and palmiers. I handcut several themed toppers for the cupcakes and placed them in coordinating nut cups from Pick Your Plum. I also wrapped candy bars in matching stationary.
My Mom spent hours upon hours decorating the rest of her home to give it a boutique ambiance not to mention the hours spent shopping for the dresses that were worn by the models. There was a total of 21 dress changes! The fashion show was a huge hit, so much that several ladies purchased the modeled dresses right on the spot.
The lovely ladies all had a great time and best of all, I spent quality "girlie" time with my Momma.
