Ella's third and final 8th birthday celebration was with extended family at our house.  We had them all over to "Ella's Cafe" for some french-inspired food and, of course, yummy cake!  (See her first celebration with friends, here; and her second celebration with me here)


When I was searching for french pink poodle parisian birthday theme ideas, I came across some fabulous ideas (you can check them all out here on my pinboard).  So with all of that inspiration in hand, here is what I came up with for the decorations and extra special touches.


First off, I found some gorgeous  Chic Poodle in Paris printable paper designs and matching I Love Paris patterned papers from pixelpaperprints on etsy.  I made the invitations and decorations using these digital designs.

Then thoughts turned to invitations & decorations. What could I do (that was within budget) that would set the scene for the French Cafe theme?  I decided to stick with the overall layout of the post-card type invitations I made for her first celebration with her friends, and just tweeked it a bit to give it more of a cafe theme feel.  Here is the back:


I then came up with a menu plan and had to design a menu to match!  (This was becoming so much fun!!  I just love playing with digital designs!)  When Tim and I were in Paris years ago, we often bought baguettes & cheese for a picnic; so we thought it fitting that we include baguettes along with a mixture of cheese for the menu.  Here is the actual menu we planned:


The "cafe" was decorated with a window and flower box, as well as a paper awning.  I just love the way it turned out!!  A perfect setting for Ella's French Pink Poodle Paris Cafe birthday celebration!

With more inspiration from etsy, I made a banner using the same pink poodle paris digital patterned papers and elements.

And now, the gorgeous & delicious cake!!  Again, inspiration from this cake was found on the internet complete with a 3-D Eiffel Tower caketopper!  As soon as I saw it I knew I just had to make it!!  I used this free printable for the Eiffel Tower caketopper, and just used Photoshop to convert it into grey-scale for printing.  It was also printed on grey cardstock paper.



Thanks for following along with me as I shared Ella's French Pink Poodle Paris 8th Birthday Celebrations one, two & three!  I hope it was fun and inspirational!

I have been working on editing Ella's birthday portraits; can't wait to share!!

UPDATE:  I have posted Ella's 8th birthday portraits here!
