Since Nikki was a fashion design major in college and is very much in to all things fashion, I thought "An Evening In Paris" theme would be great. It also helped that there were a lot of items for this theme on clearance on Oriental Trading.
So the first thing I did was to book a nice venue at a great little Italian restaurant near their home called Villa Barone. I did almost everything for this party online or over the phone since I live about a 45 minute drive from the venue.
I actually ordered the cake without ever seeing the baker or bakery in person at all! I intended to get to the restaurant in time for delivery, but the absolutely horrible Friday afternoon traffic kept me from getting there on time! So I sent photos, had the good doctor drop off a check, and got this AMAZING cake from My Little Kupkake which is a few doors down from Villa Barone!
I made pink champagne cupcakes with pink champagne icing that were delicious!!!
