Noelle's French Cafe Party

My bebe is one and while she loved her party, and I loved her party, we all know I really loved planning her party. We went French Cafe because A) We love a food themed party, B) My brother is an awesome good sport and I knew there was a mime inside him silently screaming to get out, C) I love awnings, D) I've been wanting to make some old school style bakery cakes, E) Last but not least, Noelle is a Frenchy name after all. Why did I opt for ABCD instead of 1234? I just always will.

Thanks be to Heather Mildenstein of the Coterie and Heather Mildenstein Photography.  I feel like Ellie from Up because I RIPPED these pictures right off her blog.

Thanks be to Gloria's Little Italy for lending us the absolutely perfect cafe furniture. They happen to be below neighbors to the Yan Photography studio. Thanks be to Yan and  Marty for the use of said studio for this soiree (I abused as many French isms as I could for the execution of this). Also, they are introducing pure, wonderful Simple Sessions in the gorgeous studio. Hit their blog for details.

  6. Darcie, my favorite part of this post was about the mime in Marty *silently* screaming to get out. Good job, good job. Dad would be proud...if he ever read any of our blogs.
