We interrupt your daily Covid-19 anxiety attack to bring to you a Parisian Poodle Party....
My daughter, Megan, turns 7 on Sunday. This year, she opted for a small party at home with a few friends on Saturday and then a family party on Sunday, also at our house. Megan has had some....interesting birthday themes. When she turned 5, she was obsessed with Gizmo from Gremlins. Her birthday cake had a big Gizmo on it. It was frightful. Last year, Megan was obsessed with her Christmas Elf, Smiling Max. Her 6 year old birthday theme was Christmas elves (in March!) which was kind of awkward, really. (Her birthday dressed looked like a Christmas dress and her cake had elves on it to the other kindergarteners' confusion....)
When she chose a French poodle theme for this year, I was delighted! So much prettier than Gizmo and elves. The possibilities are numerous with this type of party. We will do Eiffel Tower painting, a game to get your own Beanie Boo poodle and French party props and pictures.
We've had a few cancellations (thanks Covid-19) but I am keeping my fingers crossed that most of the girls come to the Parisian Poodle Party tomorrow.
We now return to your regularly scheduled Covid-19 anxiety.
