Birthday at Laduree

Last month I was lucky to have my parents in town for my birthday! It was a beautiful April day, the sun was shining and we went to the Champs Elysee for a little shopping. Well, my mom and I went shopping and my dad went up the arc de triomphe for a little sight seeing. After buying a dress in Naf Naf and meeting back up with my dad, we headed over to the famous Laduree for birthday celebration cakes. Laduree is a luxury cake and pastry brand that is best known for making the best macarons in the world.

I was a little worried that we didn't have reservations, but we didn't have to wait long. We were directed upstairs through a little room with a fireplace to be placed at our table under a beautiful chandelier. The restaurant is beautiful separated into many different rooms and decorated in luxury wallpapers, and fancy chairs. I have gone to Laduree in the past, but only to buy macarons to take away. You may remember my last post about it here.

Trying to decide what to have is the main problem with Laduree. There are so many choices of pastries, cakes, macarons and tarts!

I finally decided on one that had raspberries and rose flavored cream. It was delicious!

My mom and I tried to eat them slowly and savor them, but they were just too good and ended up disappearing quickly from our plates.

What a fabulous way to spend a birthday in Paris!!
