As far as fictional characters go, the French schoolgirl Madeline is among the most beloved. So it was no surprise to Kate Landers when a birthday girl approached the Boston-based event planner with hopes of organizing a Madeline party.
Landers, who specializes in kids' parties with classic themes, created a French Marketplace for the girl and her 11 guests. Tables represented separate “shoppes”: a Clothing Shoppe, a Candy Shoppe, a Flower Shoppe and a Book and Toy Shoppe.
The girls filled red suitcases with treats and favors as they traveled from shoppe to shoppe.
At the Clothing Shoppe, they received capes styled to look like Madeline’s dress. At the Candy Shoppe, they filled cello bags with red, white, yellow and blue sweets. At the Flower Shoppe, they created crafts; and at the Book and Toy Shoppe, the girls colored pictures of Madeline.Click through this photo gallery, then visit Landers' blog post about the Madeline party for more photos and details.
