Celebrating with Champagne Hues

Hello, again, dear friends! Today I’m inspired by pinky-golden-creamy champagne hues so present in France and currently on my mind as I plan the launch celebrations for Paris in Bloom that are taking place in just a few weeks. Champagne will definitely be on the menu as we toast the release of a project that I’ve been working on for several years. You can read all about it here.

Although each of these locations are either in the book or were considered for inclusion, these actual photos sadly had to be cut. The selection process that my editor and I went through was very tough! But I’m happy that you can see them here now.

Wishing you all a fabulous week!

  • If these are the photos that “had to be cut” one can only imagine the wonderful photos that made it into the book!!

      Dearest Dany, Yes, sadly, these didn’t make it in but not to worry because many more DID make it in the book! Thank you for your sweet words and wishes. Sending much love, xoxo G

  • It is hard to believe that these had to be cut!
    Each one is so truly beautiful, Georgianna.
    Thank you for sharing them here.

      Thank you, Lisa! The truth is, I submitted way too many photos for the book and my editor and I had to pare them down. It was really hard! I secretly hoped to make the book bigger but there are many factors involved including economics so I had to be very judicious! But we’re very happy with the final selection and hope everyone else is, too. Have a great week! xx

      Thank you so much, Joan!! I hoped it would be that for people that might not visit in person. Very best, Georgianna

  • Hi Georgianna–visiting from Lidy’s blog post about your beautiful Paris in Bloom book. I love the photos with the Eiffel Tower in the background. When I was in Paris in May 2011, I had the chance to photograph some lilacs with the Tower in the background–so many memories. Your photographs are just beautiful!!

      Hi Diana! Thank you so much for visiting! Oh, lilacs with the Eiffel Tower must have been amazing to photograph. I hope you get a chance to return to Paris one day soon. Very best, Georgianna

    Hello Georgianna,
    I also learned about you from a post on Lidy’s French Garden House blog. I am overwhelmed by the beauty of your photos. Your books are definitely going on my “wish list” for Mother’s Day. You can count on regular visits from me as there is so much beauty to explore here.
    Thank you for showcasing the loveliest of the lovely!
