Springtime in Paris

Springtime in Paris can be rainy, cold and grey.  But, at the George V, one of my favorite hotels in the world, the flowers and colors can erase the gloomiest of weather.

By using one flower, an orchid, in a vibrant color and in large numbers, the courtyard arrangement was a simple yet stunning punch of life.

Similarly with a light lunch, a chilled fresh pea soup served in an ice cube with a bit of coral colored salmon, the impact was dramatic as well as delicious.
