Paris with kids || Eleven things to do



My friend and I took our daughters to Paris for the first time just a week ago.  It was so exciting!  Beginning with the anticipation and planning of the trip and ending with the wonderful memories of having introduced my daughter to one of the most amazing cities in the world. The girls absolutely loved it and I, seeing everything though their eyes, fell in love with the city all over again.  It really was a magical trip. A perfect mother-daughter getaway. We were in Paris for three days and four nights and were able to fit all this in.  Keep in mind that our girls are seven (or almost seven!) so we had to adjust the trip accordingly.  Here, I highlight what I think are eleven wonderful and easy things to do in Paris with kids.

Product Scoop || Setting a Beautiful Table - Kim Seybert



These plates have robbed me of sleep lately.  The colors, designs and combinations really give me heart palpitations of pure excitement. I discovered  Kim Seybert via Bradley's amazing instagram.  I had to find out more about those plates.  Kim Seybert  has designed  really exciting patterns to dress your table for any occasion from fancy dinner parties to casual gatherings (yes, she does some collections on melamine!).  She has adventurous plate designs, luxurious placemats and chargers, and the most exotic napkin rings you ever could imagine.  And don't even get me started on the cocktail napkins.  Modern luxury takes on a whole new meaning here. Warning- these photos are not for the faint of heart.

Edible Flowers



Ever since I saw this cake I had been wanting to add edible flowers to glam up one of my baked creations. But it took me a while to find a place that sold them in a package and were ready to use.   Until finally I saw these beautiful edible violas.  My daughter and I made the Miette Tomboy cake we tried out here with a few changes to the frosting so it would match the violas.  We made a yummy and exotic lavender butter-cream which was divine.  Now I want to use edible flowers on everything!  They really stole the show at our little luncheon.  Here are some other fun things you could do with these beautiful edible flowers.
