Your Kind Of Party
Clafoutis caters to moms in birthday mode
In a perfect world, moms wouldn’t judge other moms on their kids’ birthday parties. But since that day will likely never come, we’re excited about a new resource that will appeal to outsourcers, DIYers, over-the-toppers, and down-to-Earthers. Clafoutis founder Anne Ligeard Mura (a New York mom and French ex-pat) has created a place where moms can simply browse party themes, shop for elegant essentials (invites, favors, banners, hats, paper goods), or hire a party stylist. Anne’s services range from basic theme and decor consultations to total party takeovers. We were completely sold on her talents after seeing photos of her daughter’s “Madeline” party, where 12 little girls were treated to handmade caplets, tourist snapshots next to a faux Eiffel Tower, and a Parisian-themed sweets table. Swoon.
