Dreams of sweet treats and magic.
Ladurée: indulging in true artistry. The very word springs memories of window displays, so tempting and fortunately arranged that you almost want to reach through the glass... elegant, ornate walls that surround warm settings of marble and signature tableware... of rows upon rows of sweet treats in the most wonderful assortment of colors. And then there are the iconic boxes—nearly always saved for their intricate, printed designs and for the memories, tastes, smells and sights of such a beautiful and magical world.
Laduée into your Easter celebration for this upcoming weekend. Visualize pretty pastel teacups containing rose hued tea, trimmed in gold of course, trays of sweet cakes, cookies and macarons, gifts of chocolates and vintage finds tied with the very same pink satin ribbon, Spring-like butterflies cut out of charming paper and imperfectly hung and fluttering in windows, baskets of fun, painted eggs surrounded by freshly cut blossoms. How dreamy...
