The Madeline book series is one of my daughter's absolute favorites. We've been reading them together for over a year now, and Liesl can recite most of the lines by heart. Once I saw how much she (and I) loved reading these books, I decided to use 'Madeline in Paris' as the theme for her 3rd birthday party.
There are so many iconic items from the Madeline book series - Madeline & her yellow hat, Miss Clavel, Genevieve & her puppies, The Old House in Paris, the Eiffel Tower, etc. So, it was pretty easy to pick things out from the book and make them work for the party. Also, it was fun to make kid inspired "french food" for the party to tie into the theme.
A huge thank you to all my amazing vendors!

"Old House in Paris" playhouse: My Favorite Playhouse
I had fun painting and decorating the cardboard playhouse just like the "Old House in Paris" from the Madeline books. The kids had quite a bit of fun playing in it as well!
The puppy party was also a big hit with all the kids - who doesn't love puppies?
I also especially loved how the Madeline Cake topper turned out - just like I had imagined! And I found an Eiffel Tower candle that worked perfectly on top as well!
