Lastly, I am going to continue to make macaroons (even if it kills me) but I might not use them as favors. I feel like they are too much work to package up and risk the chance of getting thrown out or crushed in someones pocketbook. I will still make some for the shower, so a tower of them can be put out, however I was thinking of doing something else for favors. Little French milled soaps. What do you think?? I found some really cute pink heart soaps (of course they were noodle and boo and $15 a pop-Go figure) but I would love to find less expensive ones and package them up with a tag saying something like "Thank you for coming..A gift from soandsos Shower to yours"??

Ooh La la!!
Thanks to my incredible mother who finally decided on the "Parisian" shower theme for the party we are throwing next month. I am not kidding when I tell you that I have multiple folders with inspiration for various themed parties, which I add to daily. My Bestie threw my shower last year and made a million of these "Martha-esqe" Pom poms in hot pink and white. She made hers with rounded edges and they looked incredible. I whipped up a few last night and I am sticking with a baby pink and black color scheme throughout. I cut the edges to a point, I thought it made it look more "fru fru", like a boa?? We are going to use lots of these, White Christmas lights and some big feathers (hoping to find some like in the picture below) with fresh flowers for centerpieces. I need to find a wire Eiffel tower, and I am hoping I can, I feel like I see them all the time but that just means since I am looking now, no such thing will exist.
