Mode Parisienne - free XML blogger template

(click for a live preview)
  • To download the xml template: click here (zip)
  • Preview the site here
  • Need help installing this? Click here
Please note that the buttons were created by me and I do not give anyone permission to use them for any other public/commercial projects, except this blog header. You may not use the buttons in other graphics, on business cards or for digital scrapbooking. You may use them for personal projects with no commercial or public (including internet) purpose.

I have included a PDF with instructions on how to replace the header image - alternatively you can leave it as it is and it will look the same as the live preview (the header will say "Mode Parisienne").


  1. hey sharnee
    i have been a big fan of all your templates ...
    recently i shifted to this template my boyfriend had earlier ...
    i suck at html
    i was wondering if you could help me to decrease the font size of teh post ?

    thanks !

  2. Hi Anon,

    If that was your blog that you showed me in that screen grab - it's an XML design. To change the text size of the post, you should go to LAYOUT >> FONTS & COLOURS to change the text size.


  3. Hi Sharnee....stumbled upon your website. I love your designs!

  4. Hello Sharnee

    I really like your site layout and the many templates, themes and goodies you create are very well designed. Keep up the good work

  5. Hi! Could you tell me the name of the font you used to create the header image? For the text Mode Parisienne? It is so cute!


  6. Hi,

    Thanks for the kind words!

    The font is "Fabulous 50s" and I probably got it from

  7. Hey sharnee,

    I am in love with your Mode Parisienne but then it doesnt work when I try to upload the file as a template.

    The error msg shows:
    Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure all XML elements are closed properly.
    XML error message: Content is not allowed in prolog.

    Please advise me further.

    And oh yea. The 2nd step of installing, instead of the tab TEMPLATE as shown by you, for my current situation is LAYOUT.

    My email is
