We would like to share another one of our week-end gourmet picnic with everyone. Our clients ordered our Amelie Poulain picnic baskets for their lunch at the Eiffel tower. We set up our picnic a little off the main path of the champ de mars. This way our clients could enjoy a little shade and a peaceful moment with their daughters. Oliver, our photographer took a few portraits of the family as well once they finished their lunch. The family photographs are gorgeous as usual. Having a family picnic at the Eiffel tower is a great opportunity to book a professional photographer.

We would love to share a few photographs of a gourmet picnic we prepared for a lovely couple from Dubai. Happily married for a little more then a week, they first landed in Paris on their honeymoon journey through France.
They asked us to prepare our “Amelie Poulain” picnic which we set up for them in a traditional wicker basket at the gardens of the Trocadero. It was a gorgeous afternoon with a big sky over the city. The trocadero garden is located across the seine from the eiffel tower. The grounds are a little higher up from the champ de mars. It is a gorgeous open space, with big old trees along both side of the park where you can get shelter from the blasting sun if need be.
We set up our gourmet picnics at a few locations around the city. The trocadero is certainly on top of our clients list because of the amazing view of the Eiffel tower on the other side of the seine. Having a picnic at the trocadero is the perfect stop to enjoy lunch before or after your visit to the tower.
As mentioned, we can set up our picnics at other gorgeous landmarks across the city. The Luxembourg gardens, the tuilerie gardens, place des Vogues are among our favorite places to enjoy a picnic in Paris.
We have been proposing picnics at the Versailles gardens as well this season. If you have something special in mind, do not hesitate to reach out to us directly via email.
We LOVE our job at ” Love Paris Picnic “. We get to meet wonderful clients. It is fun and exciting to prepare our gourmet picnics in traditional wicker baskets every day. We take great pleasure to set them up at different beautiful locations in Paris and Versailles. A picnic birthday celebration is a blast specially when our client is turning one year old. We had a special request for a chocolate and vanilla strawberry cake which our bakery at Versailles prepared for us. It was all Yummy! Dad and Mum ordered salmon and chicken sandwiches that we served with a market vegetable salad along side a selection of goat cheeses.
Olivier, our creative photographer was part of the game. He produced gorgeous lifestyle family photos along the water where we had set up the picnic with cushions and umbrellas for the sun. Mum and Dad had a wonderful time as well. Those family photos are really to die for. I specially love the one where she played with our red balloons.
Our little princess has already booked us for her two year old birthday anniversary. So long till next year at Versailles gardens for another fabulous gourmet picnic birthday celebration.
Gyl contacted us a while back to help plan a family picnic in beautiful Paris for a birthday celebration and a family reunion. The whole family with a total of 24 members were to fly to Europe in the month of July. Their European journey was to end in Paris. She wanted something special and fabulous for everyone to celebrate family and love.
We set up one of our gourmet picnic at the champ de mars for them. The weather had been simply gorgeous in Paris, even too hot at times! Unfortunately, a couple of days before our picnic date, we realised that it might rain after all. The forecast was actually not the best announcing a storm in the morning and constant rain fall through out the day!!
We first decided to change the date to friday instead of saturday as originally planned. As a precaution, we had actually blocked three days for Gyl’s picnic so that we could be flexible with time and date. So we were fine, we thought at first! Only we realised the next morning that rain was now forecast for friday as well with late afternoon storm!
Gourmet picnic on a rainy day.
After consulting with our client, we finally decided to stick to our original plans. Only we were to set up the picnic on a couple of tables under one of the Gustave Eiffel beautiful shelter at the champ de mars. In case of rain, we would be safe. We had organised umbrellas with the hotel as well just in case. Nothing at this point was going to stop everyone from having FUN on a typical French afternoon picnic at the Eiffel tower. This was going to be their last day in Europe. Everyone was ready to party and face the storm if need be!
Well as it turned out, for sure the sky was rather grey, the temperature had dropped a little. Luckily we did not see a drop of rain on that day. It rained a lot overnight, neither us or Gyl slept a lot on that night!! The couple of weather forecast we had our eyes on were both completely wrong!
Thanks to the gods, everyone had a wonderful time. The food was great, we had a selection of market quiches on the tables, a selection of French cheeses, cold meats, three different market salads, melons from Cavaillon as well as refreshing watermelon and chocolate cake for desert. Not to forget Rose wine from provence, chilled bear and mineral water just in case.
A Magician for a beautiful birthday
Our friend Clement the magician joined us for part of the day. Here below we posted a few photographs taken during his magic show. Everyone; the young and not so young including us at “Love Picnic Paris” had a wonderful time with him. Our magician’s performance was a lot of fun and had us entertained. His illusions, staged and close up magic were quite comedic in nature and the audience was ecstatic. GREAT SUCCESS ….
Enjoy the few photographs from this wonderful afternoon. Do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any question in regards to a possible picnic celebration for a birthday and a special occasion. The eiffel tower and the champ de mars are amazing backdrops for an afternoon party in Paris. We love making our clients happy. It is a real pleasure to share our love for the city and French picnic traditions with everyone.
FEW WORDS FROM OUR CLIENT : ” The best event Ever! Appreciate all the pictures. Not sure we can do anything to top our Paris picnic experience. The picnic and magician were a highlight. Thank you again. I am seriously considering starting a similar business in Michigan All the best. Gyl ”
