I LOVE collaborating with moms to help create their custom party vision! Kiki's mom, and friend, came to me with the idea of hosting a macaron theme party for her soon to be 3 year old and asked for help in some of the final details. While her vision was strong, we hopped in and provided a few final touches to help the look pull together.
Whenever working on a custom theme, we start by gathering inspiration. Generally the first step in that process is to see what has already been created or styled in the online universe using our particular theme. Well, in the case of macaron parties, not much pops up :). So, with virtually a blank slate, we created custom printables to coordinate with Kiki's bright and cheery color palette.
We hope you love the pictures provided by Kiki's mommy showing how everything came together!
The main dessert table's feature was most certainly this bright and whimsical backdrop from Created by Jackie, personalized with the birthday girl's name and age. Dimension was added to crisp white linens by adding a simple jute runner across the center of the table. The birthday cake was simple pink, accented by rich chocolate and topped with colorful macaron cookies. Buttercream cupcakes were topped with macarons, macaron pops were displayed with fresh fruit and fun candies in clear jars were available for guests to enjoy. Custom sugar cookies inspired by macarons were displayed on clear pedestals on the dessert table and indoors where cocktails and delightful appetizers were served.
Seated tables were covered in crisp white linens, accented with a rose pink runner and each guest's chair had a custom macaron placemat. White and peonies were the perfect centerpiece for these simply stunning tables. Throughout the party's decor, and flagging the entrance, were handmade wooden macaron cookies from Created by Jackie.
Guests took home colorful sandbuckets filled with colorful chalk, perfect for summertime fun! And, Kiki will thank her guests for her birthday gifts using these personalized Thank You fold-over cards by Minted.
