The talented artist, Carol at Paris Breakfasts, recently posted about Laduree in Paris. What a beautiful post! My mouth is watering here in San Francisco. Known for their famous 'Laduree green' decorative boxes that hold their delicious macaroons and treats, Laduree has just launched a new color theme, lavender. I LOVE lavender!
Every season Laduree comes out with a limited theme box and line. Last year it was the pale pink Marie Antoinette box. Beginning September 1st, they have added some fabulous new non-food gifty items such as lavender-colored candles, cosmetic bags, soaps, beauty products etc. etc. I am hoping that when my friend Janet goes there next month I can give her a small list of treats to bring back, since you can't buy it here in the states.
I have a collection of Laduree boxes that are so lovely. The pastel colors are so pretty together. In fact, if you haven't seen it, Laduree has a book out with their history, including the various designers of their highly collectible boxes.
