High Tea in Paris

Last week I imagined myself in Paris during springtime, surrounded by macarons, haute couture and blooms, if only for a moment. L’Heure du Thé (or a French High Tea) captured the essence of France amid the Langham Hotel’s ballroom. The sold out event featured a mini-market, a Pierrick Boyer (of Le Petit Gateau) designed menu and yes, copious cups of actual tea (coutesy Madame Flavour).

Here are some of the highlights of the fund-raiser for the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Really, you should put this one in Le Journal for next year.

Ooh la la. Eclairs, friands and tiny sandwiches (which I can never say non to).

Madame Virtue & Co. mostly lent their own lovely pieces for display along with a few European fashion treats. Apparently MV&C is the only real Australian haute couture available here (since it’s all made in France but locally designed).

Blossoms by Domain Flowers left my favourite jasmine scent wafting through the air.

Peony spritzed me with perfume that left me smelling like French royalty. These are by the Rancé house created at the behest of Napoleon.
