Destination Inspiration: Paris

We’re so excited about our Destination Inspirations Event happening at The White Dress by the shore on Sunday, March 20th from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. We’ve already revealed two of our destinations that will be shown at our event: Capri and New England.

Our third Destination takes us back over to Europe to one of my favorite cities which continues to be a constant source of inspiration for our personal and professional projects here at Jubilee Events. Paris. What’s not to like about the city of lights and the city of love? Cobblestone streets, croissants, Bordeaux, Champs de Elysee, croque madame, The Metro, Marie Antoinette, corner street cafes, Chanel, Dior, Louboutin, Vuitton, Givenchy, YSL… need I say more? With this Parisian inspired board we took a cue from the French ballet and a place I heart with every fiber of my macaron loving being: Ladurée. I love the idea of being inspired by tulle and tutus, high buns, dramatic makeup, and those beautiful bites of perfection from Ladurée. We took the signature Ladurée green as a starting point and worked in the colors of champagne, gold, and brown to accentuate.

When being inspired by Paris, remember the gorgeous architecture of the city (no matter where you are– everything is beautiful); a romantic stroll along the Seine river; up and over the brides along cobblestone streets; the delicious nosh and nibbley: the croissant, cafe creme, onion soup (yum!), and eggs for dinner; the delicateness of Parisian style in both food and fashion; Montmartre with its steep hills, artisan culture and stunning views; famous french dames such as Marie Antoinette, Coco Chanel and Brigitte Bardot; gild and excess of musée du Louvre and le château de Versailles. There is so much inspiration to be had.

And as the great Audrey Hepburn once said… Paris is always a good idea.
