Catering for a romantic picnic adventure at Versailles, a Paris engagement at the Eiffel tower, birthdays & party celebrations have been a wonderful experience.

We cannot recommend enough experiencing a Paris picnic at the Eiffel tower or the gardens of Versailles if you are planning a visit to France this summer.

We met up with Mark and Natasha at the Trocadero gardens for a special afternoon. They enjoyed our romantic “Edith Piaf” picnic overlooking the Eiffel tower. Their Eiffel picnic was all set up for them when they arrived to the park. Our photographer took them around the site once they finished their picnic for some lifestyle photography. The photo session lasted one hour. Olivier doesn’t count the time spent with his clients neither. The photo sessions often go overboard ! Neither does he counts the number of photos that he sends out to our clients. All of our Paris couple photos are retouched, sent out a few days after the shooting. You never wait for then a couple of days to receive your Paris photo story.

Olivier has worked in NYC for over 10 years as a professional photographer before he decided to settle back home. He has tons of experience making sure that his clients are having a wonderful time diring the photo session. His photos are anything apart from cliché, and convey the beauty of love, family and friendship. It is a real pleasure to spend the afternoon with him.

Our photographers style is fun and easy so it seems anyway! Years of experience and passion for his craft makes him a great professional photographer to work with. Mark was a little on the shy side while Natasha is used of having her photos taken for work. The result is stunning ! They look so happy together and certainly had a great time in the city with us.

Advices in getting engaged in Paris.

A few days ago, I bumped in an article about the 10 best ways to get engaged in Paris! Being curious & in the business of assisting clients with their Paris proposal, I took the time to read the article! I was only half surprise to notice that we propose to our clients three of the ten ideas suggested in the article.

eiffel proposal

Trocadero garden proposal idea.

Eiffel tower proposal.

Number one on the list was the Eiffel Tower: It titled “The ultimate cliché” but hey, it’s a cliché for a reason! As the sun sets, the city lights up, and so does your love. Pop the question on the top deck for a memory that’ll sparkle like the tower itself. Enjoy our engagent picnic set with wonderful lifestyle photography with ” Love Picic Paris”…

I first climbed the tower around 7 year of age. I still remember vividly the experience. I went back up a few times since with friends and family. Each time it is unique and very exciting afternoon. The view over Paris is breathtaking and the tower itself a real beauty!

A Luxembourg gardens proposal.

Picnic in Luxembourg Gardens: You can grab a baguette, some cheese, and a bottle of wine. Find a cozy spot in the Luxembourg Gardens and ask for forever amidst the lush greenery and serene fountains.

Alternatively we can set up one of our gorgeous French style deco gourmet picnic for you to enjoy. Here is an exemple of one of our Luxembourg gardens proposal.

You seal the moment with a kiss, and then pop open the champagne to toast to your future together. The Luxembourg Gardens, with its timeless beauty and romantic charm, will forever be the place where your journey together took a beautiful new turn.
Luxembourg Gardens offer an idyllic and intimate setting for a proposal, making it a perfect choice for couples who appreciate a blend of natural beauty and classic Parisian romance.

We will have our professional photographer photograph your proposal when you arrive at the picnic site from the distance.

Luxembourg garden proposal

Luxembourg gardens afternoon proposal.

Day trip at Versailles for your proposal.

Versailles Day Trip: Take a day trip to the Palace of Versailles. The Hall of Mirrors or the lush gardens make a regal backdrop for a royal proposal. Visit the estates in the morning & walk down the gardens to the canal area. We will again set up one of our gorgeous picnic set for your Versailles proposal. Our photographer will take you around the gardens after your picnic for some fun engagement photos.

The Gardens of Versailles, known in French as “Les Jardins de Versailles,” were created during the reign of Louis XIV, the Sun King. This grand project was designed to complement the splendor of the Palace of Versailles, which was transformed from a modest hunting lodge into the epicenter of French political power and the embodiment of absolute monarchy. We love ourselves heading to Versailles for the afternoon.

Other ideas for a Paris proposal.

Boat Ride on the Seine: Rent a private boat or hop on a public cruise. As you glide past Notre Dame and under the city’s historic bridges, drop down on one knee. The gentle waves and the city’s charm make it a perfect setting.

Montmartre Magic: Head to Montmartre, the artist’s district. After exploring the charming streets and taking in the views from Sacré-Cœur, find a quaint café or a hidden alleyway to ask the big question.

Louvre Courtyard at Night: The Louvre is beautiful by day, but it’s magical at night. Stand by the glass pyramid, let the museum’s lights set the mood, and let your love story become a masterpiece.

Lock Bridge Romance: While the original love lock bridge is no more, you can still find plenty of places to attach a lock and toss the key into the Seine. Make it official with a lock and a proposal.

Street Music Serenade: Paris is full of street musicians. Find a performer who’s willing to play your song, and as the music fills the air, let your heart do the talking.

Champagne at the Top of Montparnasse Tower: For panoramic views of Paris, head to the Montparnasse Tower. Enjoy a glass of champagne at the top and toast to your future after they say “yes.”

Deco picnic set up at the Trocadero gardens.

Our deco picnic was set up for our clients engagement at the park of the Trocadero. Below a mini photo story of our clients romantic afternoon with the Eiffel tower in the background.

The photos are a lot of fun. Our professional photographer will capture your proposal in a lifestyle manner, gently guiding you through the process.

Giverny picnic

Giverny Luxury Gourmet Picnic

Embrace Giverny and the impressionists with a Picnic.

We simply love heading to Giverny from time to time. Giverny represented a haven for the Impressionist movement, particularly through Claude Monet’s iconic gardens. It served as a source of inspiration where artists could capture the interplay of light and color in nature, which was central to the Impressionist aesthetic. Visit Claude Monet’s foundation in the morning & enjoy a gourmet picnic on the seine with “Love Picnic Paris”. We will set up our deco picnic with vintages table cloths, designer cushions, retro style umbrellas, our French style wicker baskets & a picnic style lunch!

Traditions of a French picnic.

Picture this: a lazy afternoon in the French countryside during the impressionist period. The sun is dappling through the leaves, casting a soft, ethereal glow over the landscape. As the gentle breeze rustles the foliage, comes the time to gather for a leisurely picnic.

The spread is laid out on a checkered blanket, adorned with crusty baguettes, a selection of cheeses, and bottles of wine… Laughter and conversation will float through the air, mingling with the scent of freshly cut grass and wildflowers.

In the distance, the Seine river meanders lazily, its tranquil waters reflecting the pastel hues of the surrounding scenery.

This quintessential French tradition of picnicking embodies the spirit of the impressionist period – a celebration of nature, camaraderie, and the simple pleasures of life.

Romantic picnic

“Le déjeuner sur l’herbe” Edouard Manet.

Le déjeuner sur l’herbe is probably one of the most famous painting from Edouard Manet.

Manet completed the painting in 1863. It caused a huge scandal at the time because it shocked the establishment. It depicts a romantic picnic scene in the French countryside. Today, it is considered one of the masterpieces of modern art.

You will be able to enjoy Manet’s painting at the Musée d’Orsay in Paris. Well worth a visit on your return from your countryside picnic in Giverny.

Visit Versailles

Versailles estates; a historical scenery!

Jose & Gabriella visited the castle in the morning before heading to their engagement picnic. We set up their romantic picnic half way between the castle and the “Hameau de la reine”.

versailles hameau de la reine

Hameau de la reine in winter. Fine art photography by our talented photographer.

The Hameau de la Reine, or the Queen’s Hamlet, is a charming rustic retreat nestled within the grounds of the Palace of Versailles. Built in the late 18th century for Queen Marie Antoinette, it’s like a picturesque village straight out of a fairy tale. Complete with thatched cottages, a shimmering lake, and lush gardens, the Hameau was Marie Antoinette’s private sanctuary away from the formalities of court life. Here, she would escape the pressures of royalty. She would immerse herself in the simple joys of country living, tending to her gardens, enjoying leisurely strolls, and hosting intimate gatherings with her closest friends.

Today, visitors can wander through this idyllic haven, soaking in its serene beauty and imagining life as a queen in a storybook village. The hameau de la reine is certainly an all time favorite of ours.

Marie Antoinette wasn’t just about lavish balls and extravagant parties. She also had a soft spot for the simple pleasures, like picnics. Picture her spreading out a luxurious blanket on the grass, surrounded by her closest friends and confidants, as they indulge in an array of delicacies. There’s champagne flowing, delicate pastries, fresh fruit straight from the orchards, and perhaps even a selection of cheeses fit for a royal palate.

If you are considering to propose while visiting France, reach out to “Love Picnic Paris. We will organize the most beautiful engagement at Versailles for you.

Paris engagement Luxembourg gardens

Picture yourself strolling along winding paths, flanked by vibrant flower beds, their colors dancing in harmony with a gentle breeze.

The rich cultural history of Paris parks.

But it’s not just about the aesthetics. French parks are woven into the fabric of daily life, serving as gathering spots for locals and oases of relaxation for visitors. From morning walks to afternoon picnics, from leisurely boat rides to impromptu concerts, these green havens cater to every whims and fancies of visitors and Parisians alike.

And let’s not forget the rich tapestry of history that adorns these verdant landscapes. Many of Paris’s parks have evolved from royal gardens, their roots and traditions stretching back centuries. As you wander through their manicured lawns and elegant promenades, you can almost feel the echoes of bygone eras, whispers of kings and queens who once roamed these very grounds.

But perhaps what truly sets French parks apart is their ability to inspire and speak to your heart. They are not merely places to see and be seen; they are canvases upon which dreams are painted, where artists find inspiration, and where lovers forge memories that last a lifetime.

eiffel picnic

So, dear reader, join us on a journey through the enchanted green havens of France, where every corner reveals a new delight, and every step brings you closer to the heart of this timeless land. Let’s explore the beauty, the history, and the undeniable charm of French parks—because in the embrace of nature, we find solace, we find joy, and we find ourselves.

 The unique charm of Parisian Parks.

Alright, let’s rewind a bit and delve into the backstory of these urban green spaces. Picture this: once upon a time, Paris’s parks were exclusive royal gardens. But as time marched on, they opened up to the public, thanks to the visionary urban planner, Haussmann, in the 19th century. Today, these parks aren’t just patches of green; they’re integral to Parisian culture, serving as havens for relaxation and social gatherings.

  •  Iconic Parks of Paris

Now, onto the star attractions! First up, we have the Jardin des Tuileries, a majestic blend of history and beauty. From there, we’ll wander over to the Luxembourg Gardens, where you’ll find yourself surrounded by lush greenery, charming fountains, and statues whispering tales of the past. And let’s not forget the Parc des Buttes-Chaumont, a little slice of wilderness in the heart of the city, boasting dramatic landscapes and breathtaking views.

The park of the champ de Mars is one of our favorite destination. The Eiffel tower is set to one side of the park making it an ideal site to enjoy a visit of the tower in the morning coupled with a well rested gourmet picnic over lunch hour.  The history of the Champ de Mars dates back to the late 18th century when it served as a military training ground for the French army. Its name, which translates to “Field of Mars” in English, pays homage to Mars, the Roman god of war.

However, with the dawning of the French Revolution in 1789, the field took on a new significance as a site for revolutionary gatherings and celebrations.


Transformation Under Haussmann: From World Fair to Public Amenity

The true transformation of the Champ de Mars occurred under the visionary urban planner Baron Haussmann in the mid-19th century. Haussmann, known for his ambitious redesign of Paris, envisioned the Champ de Mars as a focal point for leisure and recreation.

In 1867, the field hosted the Exposition Universelle, a world fair showcasing France’s cultural and technological prowess. This event marked the beginning of Champ de Mars’s evolution from a military training ground to a beloved public park.

The Eiffel Tower: A Symbol of Progress and Ingenuity

No discussion of the Champ de Mars would be complete without mentioning its most famous landmark: the Eiffel Tower. Designed by engineer Gustave Eiffel, the tower was erected as the centerpiece of the 1889 Exposition Universelle, commemorating the 100th anniversary of the French Revolution. Initially met with skepticism and criticism, the Eiffel Tower soon captured the imagination of Parisians and visitors alike, emerging as an enduring symbol of progress, ingenuity, and the city’s indomitable spirit.

A unique experience at Versailles.

The Gardens of Versailles are an iconic exemple of French formal garden design and are part of the larger Palace of Versailles complex. A visit to Versailles castle is a unique experience. Its historical grandeur makes it the perfect grounds to enjoy a stylish gourmet picnic at Versailles. Here’s a brief overview of its history in a few words:

  • Origins: The history of the gardens dates back to the early 17th century when King Louis XIII acquired the land for hunting. His son, King Louis XIV, later transformed the hunting lodge into the grand Palace of Versailles and began developing the gardens in 1661.
  • Design and Expansion: André Le Nôtre, a renowned landscape architect, was commissioned to design the gardens in the French formal style. Le Nôtre’s design incorporated symmetrical layouts, geometric shapes, water features, and meticulously manicured lawns. Over the years, the gardens underwent several expansions and enhancements under the direction of Le Nôtre and subsequent landscape architects.
  • Symbolism and Grandeur: The gardens were intended to showcase the power, wealth, and grandeur of the French monarchy. They were meticulously designed to impress visitors with their beauty and opulence, featuring elaborate fountains, statues, sculptures, and ornamental flower beds.
  • Social and Cultural Importance: The gardens served as a backdrop for elaborate court ceremonies, festivals, and entertainments hosted by the royal court. They were also used for leisure activities such as promenades, picnics, and outdoor concerts.
  • Revolutionary and Modern Erance: During the French Revolution in the late 18th century, the Palace of Versailles and its gardens were seized by the revolutionary government and eventually opened to the public. In the modern era, the gardens have been meticulously restored and are now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, attracting millions of visitors each year who come to admire their beauty, history, and cultural significance.
