Celebrating with Gabriela : Le Jardin de Gigi
Mother of two, Gabriela always makes the most gorgeous birthday parties for her children Gigi and Benny. These celebrations are very important to her, they are a way to create memories to cherish forever.
When we learnt that her eldest's seventh birthday party would be a garden party and Sleeping Beauty theme, we knew it would be just marvelous. Welcome to "Le Jardin de Gigi"!
How did you choose the theme?
Gigi loves flowers and princesses so we wanted to incorporate both. In the family we are also great lovers of everything from France which is I why I added a French touch through the name "Le Jardin de Gigi". I also chose a French party planner.
Who did you work with to organise the party?
Anne Ligeard Murat owner and founder of @clafoutisny created the vision for the party. She always makes our parties exquisite and magical. Her work is absolutely breathtaking and unique. Over the past years she did a “Gigilicious” party inspired by Pinkalicious and a fairy princess party for us.
Can you tell us more about "Le Jardin de Gigi" please?
As the party was in September, we were able to have it outside and create a real flower garden with a beautiful arch of fresh roses, bouquets and flowers sprinkled everywhere to create a fairytale ambiance! Gigi and I both wore floral print dresses to match the mood!
We had several custom made cakes, a book wishing one and one with a precious medallion representing Gigi and golden crown on top. We also had lots of adorable and delicious princess inspired cookies! The children loved it! For the French touch, we had macarons too!
We set a pretty table and each child had a little wicker basket that matched the chairs!
