Paris to Provence - French Festival

Vive La France!

This weekend played host to the Paris To Provence French Festival at Como House and Gardens, Melbourne. We sipped French wines and beer, ate more than we needed to and basked in the glorious sunshine with some pretty awesome people. 

The grounds of Como House are beautiful, but unfortunately I didn't get to go for a tour through the house itself. My favourite area was the Farmers Garden with all it's flowers in bloom.

It took us all about two loops around the merchants circuit to decide what to get for lunch because everything looked and smelled delicious. I decided on Rabbit Pie, a Saucisson Cone and some Macarons all washed down with French Rosé. They all tasted as good as I had hoped. Others feasted on Boeuf Bourguignon, baguettes, quiches and crêpes stuffed with Nutella. Tip of the day: don't wear a white dress whilst eating Nutella crêpes.

The crowd was crazy busy but it was great to see so many people coming out to show their love and support for France and the French people of Australia.

We all had a fantastic day and I for one cannot wait until Paris To Provence rolls around again next year. Feeling very inspired for So Frenchy, So Chic in January!
