Coradorables ™ muse Izzabelle was born 10/10/10 so her 5th birthday needed to be every bit as magical as she is. Izzabelle loves to read, and mommy loves to travel. Izzabelle attends an all girls Catholic school and is one of the youngest in her class. The Madeline in Paris theme was perfect for this worldy little lady. The venue was Sacred Hearts Cathedral in Honolulu Hawaii with the statues, fountains and backdrops and old world architecture made for the perfect backdrop for this Parisian theme. The weather was perfect Hawaii weather. The venue was decorated to be a street in Paris. There were various vignettes and shopkeepers. There was a French Cafe, a fresh boutique where the girls could play dress up, a library, a disco tech, an art studio, & a movie theatre that played the Madeline DVDs via projector on an old fashion stage. There was also a very intense game of musical chairs. The girls mostly ran around squealing having a blast.
