A gem of a discovery while wandering the streets of Paris' Saint Germain-des-Pres was a flower shop dedicated to all things rose. A friend of mine had recommended the shop called Au Nom De La Rose, but I'd managed to walk by it unawares for weeks, but always admiring the gorgeous and colorful bouquets.
Picked up a bouquet of orange, yellow and pink Kenyan roses from the shop for a dinner party. It's whimsical and charming. Loads of great little gifts here too - scented candles and wonderful little perfumes. They have 43 shops in France, but are also in Brussels, Barcelona, Milan, Moscow, Athens, Beirut, Kuwait City, Shangai, Santiago and London.
Just one more thing to add to a beautiful Spring day.
