La fête des Mères

 And for maman this weekend. What are you planning?
 Why not run over to Eric Chauvin for some pretty fleurs?
 22, rue Jean Nicot 75007
 Pick out exactly the rose you want in the courtyard.
 Ah, the perfect pale pink bouquet pour maman tres rafinee.
 A quick Metro up to Printemps to get maman.
Pourquoi pas?
 You'll be so inspired by the windows.
 The perfect grosgrain pale pink ribbow.
 Pink ribbons everywhere.
 As if you were stepping into Christian Dior's atelier..
 Imagine you're the sorcerer's apprentice checking the new designs.
 For Miss Dior Cherie new bottle...dring...dring
It's Natalie Portman...she wants to come by.
 Would maman like perfect pink suede slippers to go with her bouquet?
 Plus Pierre Herme's newest macaron, Jardin Parfume
I ate mine yesterday...exquise
 Une aquarelle pour maman?
 et une petite chien aussi.
Mais maman will NEVER eat Carte D'Or ice cream!
What were you thinking chouchou?
Call Amorino for a 'tulip' gelato delivered a la porte.
Nice to dream a little isn't it?
Bon Week-End all Parisbreakfast mamans et enfants!
Pin It


  1. How I would love to spend some time in Paris with my mom!

  2. Thoughtful post for all the Mothers out there in PB world.
    Love the icy edible goodie in your watercolor.

  3. Lovely ideas for any maman celebrating this weekend. Do you know there is now an Amorino on King's Road in Chelsea/London? Just waiting for you on your next visit!

    1. There is one on University Place enfin..
      But I refuse to pay $5+ for an ice cream
      Somehow it feels different in Paris..
      Why is that?

    Lovely post...esp. the Printemps display. Your watercolor is absolutely luminous!

  5. I'm treating myself to a PINK pedicure thanks to PINK inspiration from YOU!!!!! Merci.:) I can't find any red or pink ballet flats around here so I'm going for the toe effect. Have a beautiful weekend! Connie*

  6. Tout est si beau..comme d'habitude..

    I have a miniature of that Miss Dior from a gift set from one of my daughters yrs and yrs ago..I kept the bottle trop cute avec la boucle:)

    I agree the watercolor is so pretty Carol.So feminine.

  8. The pink is everywhere! Very nice soft colors - the flowers and the greenery.
    I love the sketch - that is one heck of a bottle!

    1. Perfume bottle design is a major big deal! it's where a lot of the $$$ goes + advertising promotion.

    2. I have a beautiful collection of those giant "factice" bottles filled to the top. I have them on the top of a big chest in my bathroom (in Texas everything is big, you know), and I love them. Maybe one day, this one?

  9. I would so love to be in Paris right now shopping for the perfect gift for maman!

    Susan and Bentley

  10. Love the watercolor. Love this whole post in fact. :)

  11. What a lovely Mother's Day present. Thank you so much. I must admit to being rather jealous of your sampling that new macaron- it looks magnificent!

    1. I'm jealous too...
      I shoulda WAITED!
      but gobbled it down in a weak moment...
      I have a lot of those :(

  12. My Mother's Day came early with a visit from Josh these last 3 was perfect!

  13. Thanks for the reminder!!! Must send something to the States this week! #baddaughter

    I'll just blame it on French Mother's Day that is next week...

    These are such great photos! What beautiful visual merchandising Dior did! I'm a sucker for pink girly.

    Bon week-end!

    1. In general I love BRAND marketing in France.
      I think it's the best but French Girl says US is better...
      Definitely prettier more fem in France IMHO.
