Parties to Pretties – Take me to Paris

by Emmadime

Every once in a while, I like to pretend that I am in Paris like the lovely Jordan – eating pastries in the park, going on walks, hosting parties on tiny balconies. I thought I would put together a little Parisian inspired party so we could all pretend to be Parisian for a few moments today. Salut to a beautiful city!!

    So charming. I adore Paris… to be honest I pretend I’m there most days.

    That’s a good idea!! I love tematic parties !! When I think in Paris, that is striped t-shirt, a beret, and a baguette !!

    That means that you’re back to San Francisco??

    How lovely. I love the pops of red. I’d love to throw a paris themed party. Good excuse to invite girlfriends over =)

    I love the colors of those macarons! I have yet to try some though. I wonder where I could get some in Chicago? Might have to order some online. But then I’ll have to wait.

    I wish I had worn that dress when I was in Paris a few years back. Instead I figured my alaskan style would translate, not in the slightest! Looks like a beautiful inspiration board.

    Audrey said it best: “Paris is always a good idea” 🙂 Swooning over all your inspiration! 🙂

    I know this is a guest post but it made me wonder about the Paris trip giveaway that made me find this blog (which I love, by the way) and who the winner was and what kind of adventure was had. It’d be great to know!

    Some feelings stay eternal, and you hardly have anything better than gifts to celebrate that. It’s the relation with your brothers and sisters we are talking about, and creates the gift galore for that. Visit for more.

    Paris always was my favourite city, I totally understand.

    Geez, that dress is perfect. There really is something about clothing, as soon as I imagine myself in that dress, then I can imagine myself in Paris.

    Emmadine, I always enjoy your posts and share your feelings regarding Paris. I this Paris — and also truly love the unique perspective Jordan is sharing. I was so wistfully wishing we’d make it there this month, too — I had to post about it, as well! Who can resist the siren of Paris in the Springtime! I had to content myself with the old video from the Conchords. If you haven’t seen it, do! I have the youtube clip here:

    PS: I’ve just checked our your site — I love the Paris images there, as well! Thanks for sharing!

    Does anyone have a clue why in the world a shop in Charleston in the USA which claims to sell French Pastries has named themselves MACAROON when they are selling MACARONS? Is it some sort of clever play on words that I am not getting? They DO know that a macaroon is a completely different thing…? right?

    I love this! The stamps are adorable. Paper Source has some great Parisian ones out now as well- makes me want to plan a trip!

    Love your blog!
