As promised yesterday, let me now take you to the pretty garden of La Maison Rose! Before opening La Vie Parisienne (which I’ll be blogging about tomorrow) in 2013, La Maison Rose’s garden was a vast lawn of greens dotted with flowers of vibrant colors. As guests started to flock into the place, the pink house and the bakery cannot accommodate everyone at all. So they expanded to the patio and the garden, offering more seats for everybody to be served comfortably.
The garden is breathtaking with its fancy miniature trees with pink flowers and leaves which look like Japan’s cherry blossoms. There are carriage-like shelters that also look like igloos if you want an airy outdoor lunch. Tables and chairs are cozy and really cute, making you feel like sitting outside a café in Paris. With the late afternoon sun, it is absolutely an ideal setting for an English afternoon tea! My blogger idol Laureen Uy had her outfit pose here so might as well also have mine. Hehe…..
Additionally, Louis Thevenin, the director of AFC/general manager added a pizza kiosk named World Pizza. It promises to bring you around the world with its 80 pizzas from different countries. They come in different types, flavors, and of course, experience! We ordered the pizza of the month, Napoleon (if I’m not mistaken). It is topped with anchovies, olives, mozzarella, and Parmesan cheeses. It was served hot from their wood-fired oven which added a more traditional taste to the pizza. You can even see how your pizza is being made right inside the kiosk!
By night, the place becomes more charming with its colorful lights. Glowing shades of blue and pink dominate the place, making it inviting from the outside. Much more, it becomes romantic with the background music. With the endearing scenery, good food, and Parisian ambiance, I highly recommend this place for lovey-doveys out there!
It is best to visit the place by late afternoon so you can have a feel and a fill of it both by daytime and by nighttime. Watch out for my post tomorrow for our evening wining and dining at La Vie Parisienne! 🙂
