Printemps au Ladurée
Ladurée launches Macaron Day fundraiser and Prince/Princess & Me Afternoon Tea for spring break
Ladurée is launching several new initiatives to celebrate the arrival of spring: one dollar from every macaron sold on Macaron Day (March 20) will be donated to BC Children’s Hospital Foundation; and from March 18 to March 29, parents can enjoy a sweet Prince/Princess & Me Afternoon Tea with their little ones at Ladurée tea salons in Vancouver (1141 Robson St. and Holt Renfrew) during spring break.
Be it one macaron, a dozen, or more, macaron-lovers are encouraged to visit any of Ladurée Vancouver’s three locations on Macaron Day to help fundraise for BC Children’s Hospital Foundation.
“Spring is such a wonderful season, and Vancouver is incredibly beautiful during this time,” says Olesya Krakhmalyova of Ladurée Canada. “Everything becomes more vibrant and spring itself feels like a celebration. To kick-off the new season, we wanted to make Macaron Day even more special by supporting BC Children’s Hospital Foundation, especially since Ladurée is best known for creating the world’s most delectable macarons. And, as a mother myself, it is especially meaningful for me.”
The Ladurée Prince/Princess & Me Afternoon Tea features a high tea set for two ($65 for one adult and one child under the age of 14), which includes an assortment of Ladurée macarons, choice of individual-sized cakes, mini viennoiseries, finger sandwiches, fruit salad, and a beverage (tea, coffee, or hot chocolate). It is available March 18 to March 29, Monday to Friday.
“I love seeing the delight on children’s faces when they enter the tea salon and then again when they take their first bite,” adds Krakhmalyova. “Our pastry chef Mickaël de Monte prepares pastries and sweets using the best and natural ingredients. Ladurée treats are known to be not overly sweet, but instead full of flavour and true-to-taste. For spring break, we hope parents or loved ones will include a Prince/Princess & Me Afternoon Tea as part of their day’s outing before or after even more grand adventures.”
Reservations are recommended for the Ladurée Prince/Princess & Me Afternoon Tea. Walk-ins welcome.
Vancouver Ladurée Boutique and Tea Salons are located at 1141 Robson St., and inside Holt Renfrew at 737 Dunsmuir St. Pastry selection may vary depending on the location.
