Did you know you can buy your Champagne at a patisserie?
Laduree Yup, it's true.
Laduree While we're at it why not dream a little...shall we pick up a few CHATEAU BLANC macarons?
Bien sur a piece montee de macarons.
Laduree Some jam for the morning after...ahem A touch of perfume CHATEAU BLANC certainment.A few romantic perfumed bougies/candles...Laduree I'll take these. Who cares what's inside. These too.

Put everything in this petit bag/sac...
LadureeAu revoir from CHATEAU BLANC et BONNE ANNEE!

Love the champagne glasses and ribbons, Carol. I didn't know they sold some of those things, too. It's a beautiful sunny day here today, and a bright blue sky--we've had dreary grays for a few days, so the weather and your lovely post have cheered me up. Happy New Year to you, too!

Oh Thank you Paris Breakfast! It's a perfect pretend gift. Really, truly, just what I wanted!
May 2009 find you with a smile upon your face, with a paintbrush in one hand and a pink macron in the other!
Merci for your creative and luscious blog!
Happy New Year!

I admit the 48 hour notice could be a sticking point...but as long as we're dreaming, let's dream that we placed the order 48 hours ago! That packaging! Could it be any better???
Wishing you a Happy New Year!

I stood once on the bridge in the early morning mist, in the arms of a man who's embrace lingers even decades later with fervent effect. He whispered I love you and my soul whispered back, "I am home at last".

Your column is like a lifeline to the city I adore. I come here often to escape the drudgery of real life and get lost for awhile in the imagery and words bringing me home once again.

I am bringing my daughter and niece to Paris in October. They are just 24 and I think at the perfect age to be enchanted and appreciative of her magic.

Thank you for your words and your journeys shared.

You even make champagne look more elegant. Very nice. Happy New Years to you, dear Carol.
