Ooh La La - Paris Inspired Baby Shower

I was thrilled to help co-host a Paris-themed baby shower last year for one of my dearest friends. 

As I was planning decorations for the party, I was fortunate to be the winner of 12 custom cupcake toppers from Lynlee's Petite Cakes

Lynlee graciously designed some amazing Paris-themed fondant toppers that were absolutely perfect for the double chocolate cupcakes I made.

I also purchased a digital download of a Paris banner from MaBellePapeterie on Etsy to use as a decoration. It looked lovely hanging over the Paris-themed suitcase I found at Michaels and the blinged-out Eiffel Tower metal wall art I picked up at Hobby Lobby.

I also picked up a custom Paris die cut with Eiffel tower in pink and black from A Vertigo Creation on Etsy. It looked fantastic attached to a black and white damask sign that I created and tied with sheer pink ribbon. I found the adorable heart wall hanger and pink flowers from Michaels.

Guests at the baby shower were given tiny white candles that I decorated with custom printed tags that matched the baby shower invitations. My custom printed favor tags - perfect for birthday parties, bridal showers, baby showers or weddings, are available at Weddings By Susan on Etsy.

I love the way my Paris-themed baby shower invitation turned out. Square is one of my favorite shapes for invitations.

Besides another blinged-out Eiffel tower sculpture center piece, I decorated the food table with a beautiful pink and white damask table runner that I purchased from Fantasy Vintage Bridal on Etsy.

And finally, I decorated a metal umbrella (for a baby shower, get it?!) wall sculpture with some beautiful Eiffel tower ribbon and pink fabric flowers. I sell this ribbon at my other Etsy shop, Supplies by Susan
