Paris Theme Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

Paris Theme Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies 

How could we possibly spend an entire week in Paris and not put together an inspiration board for a Paris theme party.  I am personally hosting dinner club in early December and am definitely taking the opportunity to celebrate all things Parisian from the food to the party decor to the place card holders.  Right now, I think I will send out the featured Parisian Party Invitation,  use the Chic Paris Party Cupcake Kit from Beau-coup (not to serve cupcakes in but rather to use for serving hors d'oeuvres), and will probably swing for either these cute Le Parisian Napkin Holders or Mini Eiffel Tower Place Card Holders to add a tad of  kitsch to an otherwise elegant table.

Blurb Photo Books – Capture the Memories!

Blurb Photo Book: Washington DC Photo Book Cover

Blurb Photo Books – Capture Your Memories with Professional Bookstore Quality Binding, Paper & Printing!

I finally finished sprucing up my house with all the my great One Kings Lane finds so I can now concentrate my efforts  on creating my next Blurb Photo Book.  I want this one to capture all the memories and amazing photographs my husband and I made when visiting his brother Andy in Washington D.C.. last Fall.

Both of us had worked at the White House many moons ago and it had been ages since we have gone back to visit so we felt like kids again – wide eyed and energized by DC's dramatic architecture, constant political banter, and great eats.

As I began pulling my favorite photos, I knew right away that Blurb was the perfect platform for this type of photo book.  Although I love Shutterfly for my everyday snapshots, I turn to Blurb when I want a more artistic, professional style product.  Blurb is perfect for professional and amateur photographers, designers, and book-lovers since they are obsessed with quality and sticklers about top-notch binding, gorgeous paper, and professional printing.

Blurb books are bookstore-quality – you'll want to share and show them off for years to come.

And best yet, Blurb is running an April special:

Blurb Photo Book: Washington Monument Photo BooK Cover

Blurb Photo Book: Washington DC Eagle Photo BooK Cover

Make a Blurb Book by April 30, 2013 and take 15% off with promo code APRIL15!

I am pretty sure I have decided on this photo of the Capital for my cover photo but would love your input,  Do you agree or prefer either this photo of an American Bald Eagle we spotted in a leafless tree as we strolled the Mall or this stylized photo of the Washington monument?

Party Hearty!
