Round and round, we will dance and play : it's a carrousel birthday party!
Read about Barbie's birthday party planned by her charming mum Adriana in Paraguay and throw your own Parisian carrousel themed celebration for your little girl. Find inspiration for your invitations, decor, cakes, treats, outfits and discover all about the special dress made for the occasion.
CAN YOU PLEASE TALK ABOUT THE PARTY INSPIRATION ?
The party theme was 'The Old French carrousel'. The inspiration came from the iconic Atelier Choux carrousel print which I have always loved.
CAN YOU DESCRIBE THE INVITATIONS?
I wanted classic and elegant invitations with a sweet touch! Of course the highlight of the cards was the French carrousel.
The invitations were handmade by an artist from Paraguay, a graphic designer with a very delicate style. The front of the card had a 3D effect carrousel. Opening the card closed with a pink velvet ribbon revealed all the party information.
CAN YOU TALK ABOUT THE PARTY DECOR?We decorated the venue with panels to match the theme : they had carrousels and hot air balloons prints in shades of pink, white and gold. They were surrounded by lots of pastel balloons, fresh flowers and of course the 4 antique carrousel horses. We added white balloons tied together to look like clouds above our heads.
CAN YOU TALK ABOUT YOUR CHILD’S PARTY OUTFIT?
For this very special occasion the Charlotte sy Dimby atelier created a custom made dress for us.
The video below will tell you all about the story of this special design. It was the highlight of the party.
We paired it with glossy black vintage style Mary Janes and white panties.
For myself I found a carrousel print dress which coordinated really well with the theme.
WHAT TYPE OF GAMES DID YOU ORGANISE FOR THE CHILDREN?
To entertain the kids we created blocks with different activities. We had the supermarket, the nursery and the kitchen where children could play and let their imagination whirl.
