Oui Oui, Paris Inspired “Play” Party!

Adorable Paris Inspired "Play" Birthday Party Photos & Inspiration!

Oui Oui, the Twins are Three! This darling party was planned and styled by Allison Godwin of High Cotton Paperie and is almost too cute for words! Not only is it decorated so adorably, but it’s such a creative and fun party that really put the children’s interests first! It can be easy to run with an idea that you think is great, but it’s always extra special if the children can use their imagination! And this “Oui Oui” party does just that with a pretend market and a decorate your own cookie station! How fun? I think the look on the twin’s faces says it all – this party was a hit! Read on for more details from Allison!

This party was held on a Sunday afternoon in our backyard.  The twins were not allowed outside until just before the party and they were beyond excited when they saw everything. This was the first year that they really understood that it was there birthday, and they spent the day singing, “happy birthday to us”. I wanted to keep it sweet and simple, but still imaginative and creative. – Allison of High Cotton Paperie
