Today, we wanted to publish a story from this past summer with a family from Porto Rico. It was the 14th of July, our national French holiday. I remember the date because we rarely set up Picnics on the river seine. Only the champ de mars area was all locked off, getting ready for the evening firework celebration. Our clients wanted a view of the Eiffel tower to enjoy their picnic experience in the city rightfully so!
Big blue sky, some colorful balloons, our traditional wicker picnic baskets, red roses, a bottle of champagne orchestrated the perfect Paris birthday celebration.

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.
