Dreaming of France is easy with all the gorgeous editorial content in our Hoffman Media magazines. Every year, our May/June issue of Victoria focuses on Gallic destinations, cuisine and decor. Last year's special-interest publication French Cottage -- one of my favorites -- offers inspiration galore. And the most recent issue of Bake from Scratch brims with mouthwatering French pastries.
I wrote the text for our May/June 2015 Cooking and Entertaining feature, "French Patisserie." Our test-kitchen chef, Loren Wood, really outdid herself creating a tantalizing menu of sweets. Later, when my talented friend Alinda and her daughters planned a Victoria-inspired tea party, it was a blessing to share their story of hospitality on Victoriamag.com. Read more about the festivities in Gracious Entertaining: Mother and Daughter Bring Our French Patisserie to Life.
With all of this beauty to behold, Emma and I had no shortage of ideas for bringing to life her 10th-birthday celebration. I will be sharing all the details of her recent party in upcoming posts, so be sure to stop by often to view our take on an afternoon in Paris.
Leave a comment below for your chance to win a bundle of our French-themed publications, and I will announce the winner at the end of our party coverage.
