This type of party would be perfect for a birthday party or even a bridal/baby shower. I love the gold framing around the macarons that are perfectly paired with the gold embellishments on the cake. And the dragées would be perfect for any type of celebration. In case you are not aware, dragées (in green; above) are almonds coated in a coloured sugar or chocolate shell that are often given as favours at French weddings. They are delicious. I actually gave them as favours at my bridal shower and had them on the dessert table at my own wedding reception.
I love the use of teacups and the kettle...a great reminder that Ladurée is also a tearoom! The religieuses (the pink cream puff pastries) are perfect resemblences of those made at Ladurée.
