Madeline in Paris Inspired Birthday Party
This is what Helena shared about the party:
“In an old house in Paris that was covered with vines…
The character from Ludwig Bemelmans’ book and the popular TV show was the inspiration for the name of our daughter – It was a childhood favourite! So it felt fitting to have a Madeline in Paris themed celebration for her first birthday.
We had a wonderful children’s entertainer who dressed as Madeline.
Each child was given a personalized passport and boarding pass. We took Polaroid snaps of each child as they arrived and put them in the passport. After some storytelling it was time to get dressed in capes and hats and go on a trip around Madeline’s Paris.
Other activities included learning to sing in French, pin the bow on Genevieve (a twist on the traditional pin the tail on the donkey), face painting, singing and dancing.
The food included a Crêperie which provided a steady flow of delicious sweet and savoury crêpes, a charcuterie stand and a patisserie.
Guests signed a copy of the book as a keepsake for Madeline.
The highlight for me was having my grandmother dress up as Miss Clavel. I jokingly told her that donning a habit at the party would be the best gift she could ever give Madeline. It was a total shock when she agreed and the look on the kids faces when they saw their grandmother/great grandmother dressed up was priceless!”
