Party planners Era uma vez… o sonho perfeito (or, for us English folk, “Once upon a time … the perfect dream”) have sent in a lovely Parisian-themed party that was created for the first birthday of Madalena.
The theme colours were two shades of pink, black and white, and the Parisian icons of a French poodle and the Eiffel Tower were used throughout..
Era uma vez… o sonho perfeito created one table for the sweet treats, another for drinks and the savoury food, a little candy shop, a playground for the children, a photo booth, a spot for the gifts, and a space for guests leave a message on a Parisian postcard for the birthday girl!
I especially love the postcard idea; it would be so lovely for Madalena to read those messages when she’s all grown up :)
