Paris Party Theme
Paris birthday party theme ideas
Fun ideas for a Paris party including invitations, decorations,
activities, food, party favors and goody/loot bags.
Have a Mime
perform during the party. If you can't find, or afford, a
professional Mime a good idea is to call your local High School or
College drama department and see if some of the students would be
willing to perform at the party.
Hire a caricature or portrait artist to draw fun portraits of the
guests. This would also be a great take home gift or party favor
for the guests.
Paris Party Invitations
Purchase postcards with Paris landmarks on the front and fill in
party information on the back.
Black or pink cards with pictures of the Eiffel Tower stamped on
Blank note cards embellished with Paris themed scrapbook paper
or maps of Paris.
Use the Flag of France (blue, white, red) either pasted or drawn
onto blank cards.
Decorations for a Paris party

Decorating with traditional colors such as blue, white and red (for the
France flag), decorate with pastels and flower (Springtime in Paris), or
more modern with pink, black and silver.
Traditional - Decorate in blue, red and white. Use red/white
checkered tablecloths for a Paris street bistro feel.
springtime in Paris feel fill small wheelbarrows with fresh cut flowers
and place them on the party table.
For a more modern Paris theme
place different sizes of Eiffel Tower statues on the party table and
fill in with fresh flowers, feather boas, and/or hat boxes and strings
Paris is known as the "City of Lights". Use strings of mini clear,

Paris Party Games
Eiffel Tower Ring Toss Game
Buy a good sized statue of the Eiffel Tower and place it on the floor.
Find plastic rings, or make from cardboard and paint them pink, that are
large enough so they fit over the top of the Eiffel Tower with plenty of
room. Have guests stand back from the Eiffel Tower, about 7
feet, on tape you have placed on the floor. Each
guest gets 3 - 5 tries to throw their rings on the Eiffel Tower.
You can change it up by starting close to the Tower and then each round
moving them back a few feet.
