FABBY: Cayetana's French Birthday Party

Hello sweet friends!

I've been here, visiting my daughter Sofia and her family because she was making Cayetana's belated 5 year birthday party. It's a long story, nothing important, so we'll just live it at that.  Cayetana chose a Parisian theme for her birthday as she loves poodles, although she doesn't have one, lol.. and along with English, she also learns French in school and she's very good at singing in French and talking, too. Anyway, it came out gorgeous, my daughter made everything to take to this club, except for the cake, which she doesn't know how to decorate, but I admire Sofia for been such a great mother, so crafty and clever, even though she works half a day, and all. The great thing is that we went back to a clean house to rest, which is just terrific;
besides the fact that this club it's free for the people who live in that condo, so that's also a great part of it.









The cake with the Parisian theme, with poodles in pink, white and black was just gorgeous and really delicious too..and Trés chic! Candy wrapped by us, is all around it in black, white and pink.
Setting her stage, which was so French, just like she wanted...this is where a magician did his show and the children just loved it and we the adults enjoyed it so much...he was really very funny too!
Cayetana very happy sitting in the middle of a group of her friends watching the show in her honor. After the show the children danced and won small prices for their skills.
 
Sofia made all the pretty trinkets for the cupcakes, the party favors for the girls and boys, and really, mostly everything else in the pink, white and black color motif and there were also banners in the same colors and motif, which she also DIYed...except the only thing she didn't do was the gorgeous cake...she's incredible, I admire my sweet girl very much.
The party favors for the little boys. There were others for the girls. Notice the water bottles all dressed up too.  I just helped her til 2am the night before..I'm so tired, it's old age too, lol..
There's, of course, an Eifel Tower too! Next to the tower there are the girls party favors with a black bow and pink paper.
Some of Cayetana's young friends. The adults are nannies.

The bubbles where thrown when the show with the funny magician was going to start.
Sofia prepared three tables with this pretty trays she also made with an Eifel Towers, filled with sweets for some of the mother's that attend the party.
Here I am with my favorite birthday girl..Cayetana, who's also dressed in black, white and pink tights and shoes.
Here I am with my dearest "little girls" of my own..Alexandra and Sofia, Cayetana's and Voctoria's mother.
Time to blow the candles with papa, mama, sister Victoria and granny.
The proud grands.. me and my hero, Alejandro.
Alejandro with our daughter Sofia.
Here is the entire buffet flanked by two Eifel Towers...trés chic!
Sofia decorated the adorable cupcake tiers with pink roses as well and small cards naming the items, some of the cards had Eifel Towers and poodles, which Sofia made...so very cute! The club had the buffet tables and pink cloths we used for dressing them, as they have them for the Sweet 15 parties for teens, which it's like the Sweet 16 in the USA.. 
 



Thank you very much in advance for your wonderful visits, my friends..you always make my day and now, probably Sofia's and Cayetana's as well!!

Lovely hostesses thank you for having us at your terrific and fun parties; I will start joining PINK Saturday, with our French Pink, black and white Parisian Party.

What a wonderful, wonderful party, Fabby. Your little granddaughter is just beautiful and I love her party theme.

You have a gorgeous family and you are just a stunning looking lady. You and your husband make a lovely couple. Your daughters are both beautiful, too.

It is so much fun to see the pictures of all of you. I am glad you had such a nice time.

This gal is off to bed. I have more company this weekend and we are going on a Christmas house walk tomorrow-my two daughters and my wonderful daughter-in-law.

We went downtown tonight and our little SweetCheeks was a live model in a store window display. We walked for hours- xo Diana

Priscilla said...

Aren't theme parties fun! I love this one. Your daughter did a great job putting it all together.
It is so nice to have children's parties at a different venue, so as you said, you come home to a clean house! Children are messy- even the best behaved ones!
Nice to see you and your husband, and your daughters. Such a beautiful family.

Lorraine said...

Dearest Fabby,
Happy belated 5th birthday to your Granddaughter Cayetana!
Your daughter Sofia did a lot of work in preparing all those details for the little kids. If we compare such events with the time when we were 5, it looks like a mini-wedding. My childhood was happy but without any fringes, due of post WWII era. There hardly was anything. In the 60s things changed and my youngest sister is like from a different generation. As long as we don't spoil our young generation too much, this is fine. Our economy is in a downward mode so let's frame those special moments for the future to become dear memories.
Hugs to you,
Mariette

Betty Stapleton said...

Beautiful Fabby, sure makes me want a little granddaughter. Do you think one of my four boys would enjoy that.. Loved it, what a great daughter you have too.

Lucia said...

What a beautiful party! Love the Parisian theme and decorations. It reminds me when my two girls were little and they would have birthday parties. Now that they are teenagers they just want to watch movies and go to the mall with their friends on their birthday. Lol. I loved the family pics too. :)

Linda Primmer said...

Fabby, how fabulous everything is. The cake is so "Ooh La La". Your daughter certainly went to town with so many lovely matching details. Your family is beautiful. How sweet your daughter is to put together a perfectly matched party theme for your Granddaughter. Thanks for sharing your lovely photos of this fabulous party. Hugs, Linda

Hi Fabby,

Everything is just perfect and gorgeous. I think, this party will be one of the precious memories of little Cayetana. Happy belated birthday to her.
Best greetings, Johanna

Dear Fabby...I am sorry I have not commented of your posts lately. We have been TOO busy with trying to sell this house, pack up what we are going to move, and getting things over to the new place..whew!
But I have enjoywd eaxh post and intend to comment on them soon.
I am starting with your grand-
daughter's wonnderful birthday party...what a beautiful theme party is was, and your daughter is so talented (like you!). The whole
decorating theme is gorgeous and what adorable ideas she carried through with. The cake is simply grand, as are the Eiffel Tower and French poodles! Who does not like French poodle doggies!!??
I am sure the guests had the time of their lives, and what a darling little girl your grand-daughter is!
In fact, your whole family is beautiful! You look much too young to have a grown daughter with her own girls!! And such a pretty daughter and grand-daughter. I can't not mention how good-looking the guys are, too!! I know you are proud of them all.
Thank you for sharing the party with us. I always look forward to your posts!
I wish you and your family a Happy
Thanksgiving Day, too, and hope that you are blessed with many more
Sending hugs and love to you, Francy
