Turn this Film into a Fete! {Marie Antoinette}

August 2nd, 2009

Marie Antoinette Scene

The story of Marie Antoinette embodies decadence, scandal, luxury, and intrigue… the perfect inspiration for our French-inspired summer fete.  Think flirty pinks, tons of sweets, and flowing bubbly… after all, any good hostess knows that “let them eat cake” is a surefire way to get the party started.


Vintage cupcakes & pink champagne… a little bit regal, a little bit rock ‘n roll.

Wiley Valentine Invite-SMP

Feminine invitations give guests a hint of the drama to come.


A drive lined with flowering trees sets the most romantic tone to the festivities ahead.

Pink Macaroons-Canelle et Vanille

Nothing says “Parisian indulgence,” like a tower of pink macaroons.

Flower Box Favors

Flowers in shades of bubblegum & raspberry are feminine toppers to gift boxes & cupcakes.

Table with Paper Flowers-Style Me Pretty

Tiers of tissue pom-poms provide a romantic canopy to a table adorned in flirty pink linens.

    Crepe Myrtles are correct. Beautiful!

  4. […] macaroons, feathers & frilliness, and paint a picture of the type of wedding someone like, say Marie Antoinette might have hosted. I love how everything has a hint of imperfection, as though guests were invited […]
