I love this precious MARIE ANTOINETTE “LET THEM EAT CAKE” 1ST BIRTHDAY PARTY submitted by Lauren Bowie. The setup is just beautiful and all the details are perfect.
Here is what Lauren had to say about the party- I received a degree in French so when I found out I was having a little girl, I immediately started planning her first birthday party. Her name is Fenley Grace and she is the love of our life! I decided to go with a Marie Antoinette “Let them eat cake!” theme since it was her first time to eat birthday cake. It was a great party and we had so much fun. I ordered a 3 tiered cake, wedding cake flavor, gaudy but simple and elegant. The top tier was hers to play in and smash. She loved it! We had a few dozen macarons, and she actually really liked the macarons. I was shocked! We served champagne with berries for the adults along with decaf coffee. Flavored water and sodas were available for the kids. I spray painted an Eiffel tower gold… that we had left over from our wedding dessert table. Also, I spray painted a cake plate and put a doily on top to serve and I spray painted one of the cupcake stands. It was a fabulous party that we thoroughly enjoyed planning and then celebrating!
