Paris Damask Celebration

Designed with aspiring sophisticates in mind, this tony soiree is pure Parisian chic. Set against a backdrop of classic black, playful polka dots, and pretty pink details, our Paris Damask party is what birthday dreams are made of… and every aspect is designed to be achievable by busy parents.

Paris DamaskA dreamy tablescape with patterned black linen, a pale pink runner, and Paris Damask Eiffel Tower centerpieces sets a sophisticated tone for a sweet celebration. Birthday cupcakes add to the decor, and pale pink tulips add refinement to the table. A touch as simple (and affordable) as tying fabric to the chairs has major impact on the ladylike aesthetic of the scene.

Party Decorations

ParisDamask-Decor-2

Paper honeycomb lanterns in pink, white, and black-and-white damask hover like a chandelier over the decorated dining table. Vases lined with white candy hold delicate pink tulips, while a beribboned platter of cupcakes takes center stage.

The combinations for place settings from the Paris Damask line seem positively endless. Our favorites: a square paper plate with polka dot napkin and patterned favor boxParis Damask cups with striped black straws, and pale pink utensils on a black activity placemat; and a Paris Damask plate on a patterned placemat with napkin, black utensils, and a tower-shaped drinking bottle that doubles as a favor.

Pink lemonade becomes instantly chic when poured into plastic champagne flutes tied with sweet curling ribbon.

ParisDamask-Decor-5

Pink tulle dresses up plain black chairs, while tiny tiaras work as both party-decor details and options for dress-up.

Menus and Recipes

ParisDamask-Food-1

A beautiful food display begins with lovely serveware that varies in style and height thanks to a mix of decorative risers. Boxes wrapped in black paper and tied with lace give cake plates a lift, while a pretty damask storage box does the same for a ribbon-tied pedestal of cupcakes.

 CAKE + ICE CREAM + DRINK

ParisDamask-Food-2

Cupcakes are an adorable alternative to a full-sized birthday cake and are easy to theme so as to match the decor. After decorating, display cupcakes on a pedestal lined with black and white Sixlets.

ParisDamask-Food-3

Even the ice cream and lemonade at our Paris Damask party get a sophisticated take!

+LUNCH

ParisDamask-Food-4

Our lovely option for lunch is a simple pairing of easy croissant sandwiches and a salad tossed with fruit.

+ SNACKS

Adding snack items to supplement the menu is an opportunity for more creative display.

  • Arrange pink and white meringue cookies on a tiered server
  • Pile fresh raspberries dotted with chocolate chips in cupcake holders dressed in Paris Damask wrappers
  • Skewer swirled lollipops in a cylinder of Styrofoam, then place in a glass vase and fill the remaining space with a mix of black and white Sixlets

Invitations

ParisDamask_Invitation-Hero

Give guests a peek at the spoiling in store by adding a pretty damask balloon to Paris Damask invitations. An “Ooh la la!” sticker on the envelope is the perfect finishing touch.

An electronic invitation sent directly to parents allows busy families to keep track of all the details. These digital invitations come courtesy of Evite, and both of them work well with the Paris Damask theme.
