Wedding Gateaux

Wedding Gateaux, original watercolor, 9" x 11"








Another thing I was looking for in Paris was a nice wedding gateaux (cake) to paint...

And I finally found it at Pain D'Epices along with some nice silverware and a nice new Teddy and, and, and...
Course there's nothing wrong with this wedding cake...except for the size.
La Maison du chocolat Wedding Favors, original watercolor, 9" x 11"



Quite a few of you wanted to know if those were Tiffany boxes

In the post on La Maison du Chocolat's hot chocolate. Nope. They are their new wedding favors containing 2 Guayaquil chocolates - pure dark chocolate ganache with a hint of vanilla.
I love to do in Paris is run around at night and take pictures of the windows. Probably why I came home a complete wreck from running day and night! :)
I found Nathalie Durieux's robes de mariƩe boutique on rue de St. Peres and she was still working as I was. She's reknown for her unconventional wedding gowns - jewels butterflies flowers pleats birds dreams fairy enchantment creating the dress of your dreams...
More YUM YUM
Seen in the Metro -wouldn't that be fun to attend!
And don't forget fleurist AQUARELLE's beautiful bouquets


BONNE JOURNEE !

  5. My friend in Paris had a "typical American wedding cake" (however it had sparklers on it...strange...)for her wedding, however, the traditional thing for French people is a croquembouche. Very cool, I think, but it seems the grass is always greener! ;)

  16. If you noticed the posters for the wedding show, you must have noticed the thousand of posters for the movie 27 Dresses as well. They were EVERYWHERE! Of course they said "27 Robes". Well, it's wedding related.

  17. That wedding gown with a the huge bow made me crack up!
    Using that Tiffany blue a mere coincidence? Like those chocolate weeding favours, I would eat the chocolates and keep the boxes.
