A Parisian style birthday picnic.
There are 1001 ways to enjoy a birthday celebration in Paris. Our client contacted “Love Picnic Paris” to surprise her husband with a gourmet picnic at the champ de mars for his 40th birthday anniversary. We suggested a spot we favor off the main path of the park. Considering that the Eiffel tower stands at the edge of the park and that the surroundings are considered to be the number one touristic destination in Paris, it is surprisingly quite peaceful. It is also one of our favorite picnic location alongside the Trocadero gardens and the Luxembourg gardens in saint Germain des Près. Steps away from the Eiffel tower, you feel like you have the city to yourself at this champ de Mars picnic location! There are also lots of gorgeous trees on the site where one can shed in case of a summer heat wave! It is also a perfect way to end a morning tour with your Paris tour guide.
You will find a few videos of our champ de Mars picnics that we have posted recently on our instagram page .

Choose your preferred picnic style.
We have four different gourmet picnics to choose from. I would suggest you head to our service page for an overall view of our 4 different picnic styles. Jolinda opted for our ” Edith Piaf ” romantic picnic set up which we customized for her. Her picnic came with a traditional baguette, a selection of cold meats as well as a selection of French cheeses. They enjoyed a vegetable quiche with a fresh market salad followed by roast beef and ratatouille. She surprised her husband with a chocolate birthday cake. ( We added a few candles and a lighter for the event ). Our romantic French style picnic is served with a bottle of champagne and macarons for the sweet tooths.
French style deco and creative photography.
While our first three picnics come with a traditional red squared blanket & our traditional wicker blankets, ” Edith Piaf ” is a little more elaborate! we will have your gourmet picnic all ready for you to enjoy with our baskets, cushions, an umbrella, balloons, candles. We collaborate with a professional photographer who can capture those precious moments for you. Olivier took a few photos of our clients when they arrived at the picnic so that he could capture the surprise effect! Once our clients finished their lunch, Olivier took them around the champ de mars for a mini walking tour around the eiffel tower so that they have gorgeous memories of the day in the city. They had a great time and it was a lot of fun for us to put everything together.
