Instructions for Making Tags

1. Select link above, and print tag image from your browser. I suggest using a heavier card stock to give the tag some weight.

2. Cut out tags from paper.

3. Punch hole at top of tags where circle is.

4. String with a colorful ribbon.

Tie on a bottle of (French) wine as a hostess gift, a goodie bag full of bonbons for your party or where ever you'd like!

Decoration Ideas


Toile fabric is a must in your party space - a table cloth, a table runner, accent on the buffet, napkins, place mats... where ever you can fit some toile in, the better!

Toile Covered Bulletin Board

How about using that same toile fabric to cover a plain cork board. Add some ribbon accents and make a french inspiration board with your little party girl (or mother to be) as the star. Add old postcards, baby pictures, and anything French, and prop up near the buffet table. Everyone will love to see the vintage, French charm, and of course pictures of the party girl!

Mismatched China

Whether your having a sit down meal or just lots of nibble food, a buffet filled with mismatched vintage china will be perfect for this party. Use plates as serving trays and fill tea cups with goodies. All the different patterns will add color and oo la la to your space!

Little White Lights

You can never have too many little white lights! Hang little white lights like a canopy about your party space. It will look reminiscent of a Parisian cafe.

Decorative Glass Bottles

A row of Limonade bottles or Perrier no only will quench guests' thirst, but will also look great. Line up on one side of the buffet for easy access.

French Signage and Old Ephemera

Create a cafe sign or scatter old French postcards about for that extra je ne sais quoi!
