Inspiration to Creation: Parisian Circus (Pt. I)


Over at Canvas & Canopy Events getting ready for our New Orleans Parisian Circus Soiree was no small feat, we prepared for the event with design boards, all of the whimsical signage and graphics, and sent out the custom ABC circus invitations to all of the guests.

Finally, in January we hopped on a plane to New Orleans to do the shower for a mommy-to-be with a baby girl along the way. The French soiree was co-ed and a celebration for both of the sophisticated and stylish parents.

We went with a pale pink, baby blue and onyx palette for baby Genevieve along with a Parisian circus vibe to play off of the French influence of New Orleans and to add a whimsical element.

The dessert table resembled a true Parisian patisserie with large spheres of popcorn balls on crystal cut glass cake stands, pastel treats in bowls, macaroons in pale palettes of pink, sherbert green, and lemon yellow. Rock candy in bright punch-pink and otter pop blues, cupcakes swirled with pastel frosting and old-fashioned stick candy with swirling stripes were labeled with custom pink tags and boldly striped ribbon.

The dessert was even served by a comical baker wearing a chefs hat to add to the topsy turvy circus feel!

Stay Tuned for Parts II & III!!
