The One With Olivia's Parisian Bistro Brunch Birthday Party

Could I think of a longer title? Probably.

We didn't have a lot of time to prepare for Olivia's birthday party this year, what with being out of town and doing lots of house projects to get ready for the new baby's imminent arrival. So a few days before my mom came in to town to help with said projects, we decided we'd throw a little birthday brunch for our breakfast-loving two-year-old. And what better theme than Parisian bistro? It was really easy and so adorable. This is pretty much the perfect party idea for so many occassions - birthdays, showers, welcome home parties, weddings. It's my new favorite. It was almost as cute as the birthday girl herself (but not quite). We even played the Carla Bruni station on Pandora to help set the French cafe mood.

It was perfect. I'll be sharing recipes in the next few weeks, but here's a little rundown of the menu:
I didn't have my normal paparazzi following her around to take pictures, so these were the only ones I got, but I do think the birthday girl was quite pleased to be the center of attention for the event. She sang Happy Birthday to herself along with everyone else and loved her gold-flecked cake.

  1. Oh my gosh. Just screams sweet baby girl. Beautiful and petite, just like Liv. I hate that I missed this and wasn't able to be the paparazzi for you!

  2. This is so cute, Michelle. Love it! Makes me want to try and talk Tate into a Parisian brunch instead of the rock gym birthday :).

  3. Glad to know about this birthday party. Recently, I arranged my best friend’s birthday party at one of the exotic Los Angeles venues. Decorated grand venue with stylish and ethnic ornaments and ordered a 2-tier birthday cake. Had great party.
