It’s Valentine’s Day -An Enchanting French Experience

When I set out to create the winter A Taste of Paris event for Valentine’s Day, I knew it had to be something really special.

While reflecting on Valentine’s Day, one word kept coming to mind, PASSION.

Curating an experience with one purpose in mind; to spark or reignite passion for the participants, became my goal and I am thrilled to share this exclusive opportunity with you.

It’s Valentine’s Day- An Enchanting French Experience is a French inspired event, held at the stunning Toulouse, Legacy West.  The day starts with 3 sessions focusing on beauty and pleasure.  French people are pleasure seekers, this passion prone quality stems from their Latin roots. This is one of the many mysterious qualities that makes French women so alluring and for the day we will act as they do!

Beginning of course with chocolate!  You will hear from a passionate chocolate maker that hand-crafts the very finest ganache and fillings and finishes them in the elegant French style…the best part?  Tasting!

I was deeply inspired by the simple floral arrangements in the Provencal villa where I stayed this past September that I thought this was the ideal chance to share these ideas with you.  You will see a gorgeous arrangement made by an expert in the field, right before your eyes.  I think you will be inspired too!Christian Dior logo

French women just seem to have that special something, that je ne sais quois.  The regional director of Dior Beauty and his team, will present Savoir Faire, an interactive experience designed to unlock the mystery of the alluring French women, Christian Dior the man and this iconic brand.

 

After fanning the flames of passion, we will take a break for a flute of champagne before heading to the table for a lovely 3-course French meal.

At the conclusion of the day, guests will be presented with a gift valued at over $65.00.

I hope you will join me for this exclusive A Taste of Paris event offered 1-time only

As promised, a recap of the ATOP summer event, A Day of Dior, and in case you missed it; how to create your own Day of Dior.

I had 2, sold-out events, both on Friday’s in July.  We met at the Dallas Museum of Art and begin our day together.

The exhibit Dior from Paris to the World, is a feast for the eyes.  Each room, more beautiful than the last.

I had seen the exhibit in Paris more than 2 years ago and was moved deeply by it. The Dallas exhibit is very different than the one in Paris.  One of the unique features of the Dallas exhibit is the inclusion of artwork in many of the rooms.  Seven pieces of artwork that are part of the permanent DMA collection, and 2 that are borrowed, are incorporated in the exhibit.  The artwork, like Monet’s “Water Lilies” seen here, help to create a particular mood in each room.

The painting called “The Abduction of Europa” by Jean Baptiste Marie Pierre, along with the Dior gowns, created a dream-like experience.
