It was only a matter of time before Nona, 3, would celebrate a birthday Madeline style. Her mother, Donna Wood, party planner and self-proclaimed Francophile, began collecting Parisian trinkets as a French major in college and Madeline books when she found out she was pregnant—all of which were used to decorate Nona’s party at Play Street Museum in Frisco

Every detail gracefully combined the books’ monochromatic color palette, Parisian collar motif and snippets from Nona’s favorite stories: The ferris wheel from Madeline and the Gypsies, the luggage from Madeline Goes to London, framed pages from Madeline the original and, of course, the character’s quintessential yellow straw hat, which inspired the birthday cake made by Delicious Cakes! in Addison. Also adorning the table were homemade French toast cupcakes and French flag fruit tarts from Deb’s Bakery.

After romping around the playhouses, Nona’s dozen guests dined on baguettes, quiche, madeleines and mini homemade sugar cookies shaped like Madeline’s hat. Crumbs were captured by delicate red and white scalloped napkins. Nona and her mom said “Merci!” with collared party favor bags filled with Madeline-themed coloring books, fruit snacks and crayons shaped like the Eiffel Tower. Red ribbons tied it all together. Oh, and they didn’t forget the hats!
