"The pink circus came to town for my daughter Marguerite's second birthday!" says Anne Ligeard Murat of New York-based children's party, paper, and gift site Clafoutis. "My daughter is very mischievous. She is full of energy and always trying bold acrobatics at the playground. In French we use the expression 'Marguerite fait le cirque,' meaning she is creating her own circus. She also loves pink, so voilà — we had our theme!"
While undoubtedly a kiddie affair, Anne put her stylish, sophisticated spin on the party, incorporating designer fabrics, a custom artwork, a beautiful cake topper, and vintage-y tutus, which she sells in her shop. There's much to love at this soiree (photographed by Violaine Rogasik), but young Marguerite definitely had a favorite element. "Her cake!" Anne says. "She loves chocolate, so we had a chocolate ganache with drizzling chocolate on top. Of course, she also loved the attention when everybody wished her happy birthday!"
