It’s a French Pastry kind of Day!
Hello! I’m so glad that you are here. Do you ever get a craving that you just can’t move past? Well, that happened to me today and I just couldn’t live without shopping for some French Pastries. I love everything about them-they are French and I love all things French, they are beautiful and I love all things beautiful, and they are delicious- and yes, I love all things delicious.
I have a favorite French Bakery. It takes me an hour to get there, but it is so worth it. They have so many wonderful pastries that I just can’t resist them. I ended up buying quite a bit of these gorgeous goodies, so I decided to have a few friends over for a beautiful spring brunch, complete with mimosas, of course.
I’m serving mimosas with the pastries, so I set out the colorful Prosecco bottles and put the orange juice into my favorite vintage etched glass pitcher. You just can’t go wrong with fresh crossiants. I bought ‘confiture parisenne” French jams to spread on the crossiants-raspberry, orange and pear. I partly bought them because the packaging was so pretty. I set the jams on a vintage silver compote.
I also got Pavlovas (they are just so pretty!), Lemon Tarts, several different kinds of Macarons, Dessert St Honore and Berry Tarts. I put my pastries on pretty platters/cake stands at several different heights to add interest. I have the macarons on a stand that I made out of a glass candlestick glued to a pretty vintage plate. The berry tarts are on a white cake stand with a dainty pink bow.
Thank you so much for joining me today. I sure enjoyed spending time with you. Please follow me on https://www.facebook.com/peacockridgefarm/, on https://www.instagram.com/peacockridge/, on Pinterest and YouTube.
